    "HeadSpin delivers actionable metrics to improving our user experience journey multi-dimensionally"

    What do you like best?

    User-friendly interfaces, integrations and automation are all great attributes. HeadSpin allows for multiple parallel tests to take place simultaneously. This allows for scale and wider coverage. The performance sessions provide an informative breakdown of each session, or recording, and enables the team to triage and pinpoint issues.

    What do you dislike?

    We've frequently used Headspin for tasks ranging across multiple departments. To increase the use cases for Headspin device pool section, they might be able to add features that would aid employees in non-technical roles to get more utility. That said, we've found applications for the software outside of the traditional engineering ones.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Headspin can be a really great tool if used with specific performance goals in mind. You can get access to remote devices in many locations internationally, which can be helpful for companies with limited resources or footprints. If your team takes performance improvements seriously then Headspin can be a great tool to add to your box.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Being a globally operating business it's difficult, albeit impossible, to have eyes on every market. Headspin allows us to connect to physical locations and gain a better understanding of local challenges by leveraging data networks and commonly used devices. The reports from sessions give clear takeways and highlight opportunities for action/improvements.
