Our E-commerce and usability approaches uncover the "why" behind the behavior. We don't rely on clicks alone, but instead uncover behavior-based insights that will lead to optimization.

The Explorer Difference

Our on-line E-commerce and UX platform features both eye tracking and facial coding to measure implicit reactions. All testing is conducted in-situation where test alternatives are embedded in actual e-commerce sites (including Amazon) and all behaviors are tracked to measure and improve performance.

Explorer’s proprietary new service, “Virtual Intercepts” allows us to conduct live interviews with your shoppers when they are on your site. You can get in the moment feedback on any behavior such as abandoned carts or promotional offer interaction. No pre-recruits, just your customers and their in the moment feedback.
