Plerdy tool relies on implementing the AB Tasty tag on the analyzed website. After a quick configuration, the session replay software starts collecting user behavior and tracks every completed interaction. It simultaneously monitors how people move, scroll, switch between pages, and what they click or tap. The tool instantly sends this information to servers, where it is processed to create a high-fidelity reproduction of user experience and provide it in a video format. User behavior recordings are not the actual videos shot by the tool. These visualizations of website visitors’ activity rely on aggregated data and provide maximum accuracy without threatening your website visitors’ privacy.

Simply put, you need to observe how people interact with your web resource. If you see from the replay that many visitors get confused, drop off, or don’t complete the required actions, the UX design isn’t working right. It harms your business and cannot satisfy the needs of customers. In that case, you should detect the reasons for such behavior by analyzing the elements they interact with more closely. For example, missing information on the product page or the wrong location of a button can make people bounce. It’s also helpful for analyzing user experience on different types of devices.
The number of videos you can record depends on your chosen software subscription plan. You can select between 100, 1,000, 2,000, and 4,000 sessions. If you need more data, discuss this with your Plerdy account manager, and we will offer you a custom enterprise plan.
