Statwolf’s FAQ

All your questions about using Statwolf’s Digital Marketing Dashboard, answered. Got a question you don't see addressed here? Let us know!

What is Statwolf?

Statwolf is a simple online platform that allows you to unlock the secrets in the data you already produce. Today’s businesses manage masses of data but accessing and making sense of it all can be a challenge.

Statwolf makes it easy by gathering all your data into one place and offering tools to allow for analysis and visualisation so your business has a competitive advantage.

We offer two packages for marketing professionals:

  • Statwolf for Agencies
  • Statwolf for In-House Marketing Departments

We also offer bespoke solutions for enterprise-level customers which we design from the ground up with your exact specifications in mind - Statwolf Data Science.

How does Statwolf work?

The advanced marketing analytics dashboard from Statwolf gives you fast, dynamic data modelling which allows you to instantly analyse multi-dimensional datasets, to generate clear visualisations of historical events, and look ahead with statistical modelling, trend analysis, forecasting and predictive analytics.

Instead of wasting time collecting data from your social media accounts, sales software and website, Statwolf brings all of that together for you – allowing you the time to improve your marketing efforts rather than just collating information.

How many users are included?

Statwolf can be used by everyone within your organisation, with no limits. On top of that, you’ll be able to set up to four user groups within your organisation. This means that the only people who see the data are the people you choose. You can also control exactly what they see.

If you need more than four user groups, that’s no problem either. We can offer infinite possibilities to fit your business (you should start to notice a trend here… there’s nothing we can’t handle).

What is a user group?

A user group is a group of users where you control exactly what they can and cannot access. You might want different departments to access different information to your upper management levels, for example. So your four levels of access might look like:

  • C-level team: They have complete access to all the global and country data.
  • Country managers: They have access to all their own country data but cannot check other performance regions.
  • Brand managers: They have access to their own brand-related data, but cannot check the performance of other brands or products.
  • Product managers: They have access to their product-related data but cannot check other product performances within the same brand.

How does Statwolf pricing work? Do we have to pay for each user?

Statwolf pricing depends only on the number of properties included and any add-ons or customisation required. Once you have a Statwolf subscription, you can share it with as many people in your organisation as you like, within the same entity (e.g. @yourcompany.com).

Within the same entity, whether you have five users or 50, it doesn’t matter. Once you have a Statwolf subscription, you can share it with as many people in your organisation as you like.

Any customisation (e.g. integration of custom data sources) will be priced separately.

  • Onboarding: Includes Training Webinar, User Guidelines and 1 hour/week of Consulting from our Data Experts for the first 6 months of your subscription.
  • Setup: The standard set-up of supported* data sources is free of charge. Any additional fee will be based on the development effort for integrating non-supported data sources, custom data integration or the creation of custom algorithm, if required.
  • Subscription: To be paid from the second year, it is a yearly fee, based on the number of web properties integrated.

What is the Advanced Analyst Toolbox? How does it work?

Statwolf’s Advanced Analyst Toolbox is a unique user profile specifically designed for skilled analysts who want to have fun with data. If you have in-house analysts who handle high complexity data every day, our Advanced Analyst user profile is the ideal solution to:

  • Stop wasting time in cleaning, updating and preparing data for analysis.
  • Optimise both standard analytics tasks (e.g. performance monthly reporting) and special analytics requests.
  • Make personalised dashboards.
  • Define custom KPIs and aggregation.
  • Download datasets for advanced analysis (using R or Python).

The price for Statwolf Advanced Analyst Toolbox includes:

  • Onboarding: Training Webinar, 2 hours/week with our Data Experts for the first year, technical support for the first year.
  • Setup: Stanard set up of supported data sources is free of charge. Any additional costs will be based on additional training time required (eg. three-hour webinar, two days live class)
  • Subscription: To be paid from the second year, it includes technical support and platform maintenance costs.

Do I need to purchase a Statwolf subscription for each brand I want to manage?

That depends on whether they are on the same legal entity. So, if your users belong to different legal entities (for example, name.surname@yourcompany.com and name.surname@yoursubbrand.com, then the prices might change according to the number of entities involved. Please contact us and we’ll find the best solution for you).

But if you have multiple users on the same legal entity then you can use your Statwolf subscription as you see fit! Whatever the best solution for your business is, Statwolf is designed to optimise for that.

Is it possible to pay just once, without a subscription fee?

Statwolf is a cloud-based platform, and the subscription fee is evaluated to cover cloud resources, maintenance operations, and support. However, we can deploy the Statwolf platform on your own server(s) (or your favourite cloud provider) too.

In that case, there is no subscription fee, though you’ll be responsible for cloud resources and operations.

What do I need to install to get Statwolf?

There’s no need to install anything. Statwolf is an online service available directly in your web browser – regardless of where you are!

Is any training required to use Statwolf?

Statwolf is designed to be easily used by everyone regardless of your technological prowess – so no training is usually needed.

However, to get you started at the highest speed from day one, we’ll provide you with initial training webinars and a thorough guidebook to get you up and running.

Moreover, we'll provide you with dedicated weekly sessions with our Data Experts for the first six months (one year if you purchase Advanced Analyst Toolbox) of subscription.

What is a data quality assessment and how does it work?

Once your objectives are set, it’s crucial to understand if your data is relevant to your project. To find this out, our team of data scientists will conduct a data quality assessment. Data quality is assessed in terms of:

  • Availability: Is the data already available? If not, how do we extract it?
  • Cleanliness: Is the data homogeneous? Does it present any errors?
  • Quantity and frequency: Is there enough data for modelling? Is the frequency compatible with the scope of work?

Yes, it does. The Statwolf platform is designed to integrate with thousands of data sources, such as:

  • Internal databases

What is a data source?

Any information provider like third-party software (e.g. Google Analytics), files (e.g. Excel, Word), and databases (e.g. Oracle, MongoDB, MySQL) are data sources.

What is a web property?

We define a web property as a point of presence on the internet that belongs to the company whose identity is associated with it.

For example, the following is a list of single web properties:

  • Your company website (e.g. yourcompany.com).
  • A different domain of your company website (e.g. yourcompany.ie).
  • A single social network account (e.g. “Your Company” Facebook account).
  • A social network account managed by your company for different purposes/languages/customers (e.g. “Your Company – Italia” Facebook account).

However, something like your company’s review pages on sites like Amazon are not actually web properties as they aren’t owned by you.

What does a Statwolf Report typically look like? How does it work?

We understand the importance of sharing results and KPI performances across your organisation or with your clients. That’s why Statwolf is designed to process reports automatically.

With Statwolf, you can:

  • Select the format that best suits your needs (Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, Excel sheets, Google presentations, and PDF documents).
  • Select the brand you wish to customise your report with (your corporate or commercial brand or your client’s brand, if you are an agency).
  • Select the KPIs, aggregations, views and comparisons you want to monitor.
