Anodot, the autonomous analytics company, today announced that Waze, the world’s leading crowdsourced traffic and navigation app, will be integrating Anodot’s real-time anomaly detection platform across its system. With over 100 million monthly active users worldwide, Waze is leveraging Anodot‘s autonomous analytics solution to improve app performance by identifying potential pitfalls before they affect users. This ensures better suggestions for routes and faster identification of glitches that could impact to usage.
Using machine learning, Anodot detects any drop in app performance, seamlessly correlating this data with other relevant metrics to present the full story for any business incident in a way that the Waze team can recognize and act upon. It’s not easy. For starters, each country and metropolitan area has its own usage patterns. Metrics are also affected by seasonal factors, the month, the day of the week, even special occasions like holidays and other events. All of these factors influence how drivers use the Waze platform, and the data that help Waze users plan their journeys.
“Waze needed a solution that could quickly identify and alert us on potential app performance and user experience issues, helping us to minimize user issues,” said Waze’s Head of Analytics, Dr. Orna Amir. “Anodot helps us fulfill our most important goal: to constantly enhance and improve the driving experience for our users. And it does so by seamlessly analyzing millions of hyper-localized metrics.”
Anodot has made Waze team’s processes more efficient and effective. “We’re very excited to be working with Waze to help them improve app performance and make a great app even better,” said Anodot CEO and Co-founder David Drai. “With traditional BI tools, it can take days or weeks for companies to learn of issues that can hurt reputation and profits. Anodot’s autonomous analytics technology is capable of handling the speed, volume, and variety of data Waze generates, and provide actionable insight from these huge data sets. Whether this means better suggested routes or fewer app hiccups, Waze users will enjoy a better app experience with Anodot working for them behind the scenes.”
