Qubit review

Qubit is seen as the “Jack of All Trades” when it comes to e-commerce personalization. It allows its users to identify, segment and influence the behaviour of their customers. They started with a tag management solution, grew it into testing, and then grew into personalization.

Qubit Customer Influence Engine combines customer data, machine learning and advanced segmentation to provide personal online experiences to customers, at scale. The most common example would be the persuasive pop-ups used on product pages.

With Qubit’s solution, the goal is to increase conversions and revenue per visitor (RPV). Qubit claims $600 million worth of online sales to be influenced over a typical week. This is reflective of their online e-commerce sales focus.

Implementation

Implementation requires a lot of IT. According to our survey, Qubit can be operational in just under a month at the soonest, which is significantly longer than many of its competitors.

The verdict about Qubit

Qubit is a great, interesting product, if you are in e-commerce. You may compare it with Dynamic Yield to see which one is a better fit for you. If you are not into e-commerce, you should look at one of the other companies that specialize in personalization.

Still, we like it. Qubit is an all-encompassing powerful product. However, it is also complicated and requires significant effort for its set-up and migration. Many companies don’t have the extra time and resources to dedicate to this process, but if you do, it is likely to be worth it. Qubit has its focus on Enterprise customers so if you are an SMB, you might want to look for another solution.
