    Tags have been around since the 90s, but they are more relevant than ever for businesses.

    What’s New in B2B UI/UX Research?

    By Kayly Lange on 1/8/20 1:27 PM

    Let's face it: B2B is infamous for a poor user experience (UX).

    Many companies fear that changing their applications and websites will anger their current customers. To be fair, users usually don't take to change very well.

    By Kayly Lange on 11/27/19 11:27 AM

    Tags go by a lot of different names in the tech world. Trackers, beacons, and pixels all mean the same thing: a snippet of code added to a site to collect and send information.

    Easy to set up, they provide important information for the website owners and their third parties, enabling companies to give users the personalized experience that they have come to expect.

    However, the very thing that companies use to help grow their business could actually be chasing their customers away.

    By Kayly Lange on 7/22/19 9:56 AM

    Since the late 90s, if a company wanted to know more about their virtual users, tags were the way to go. However, that’s all starting to change.

    Client-side tags are falling out of favor in a significant way. With the rise of smartphones, legislation over data, and the emphasis on customer experience, tags can’t keep up with modern e-commerce. Instead, companies are starting to lean on server-side data to get the information that they need.
