Skio Data Platform Philosophy

After a year of collecting feedback and investing heavily in rebuilding our analytics from the ground up, we are excited and proud to introduce the Skio Data Platform. The Skio Data Platform (SDP) is both an investment in our database to be able to offer the best and most accurate data for you as well as a commitment to offering data for each new feature we offer. We are committed to offering reliable, exportable data to help you make data-driven decisions to help you grow your store and provide insights on the value of Skio’s features. Don’t take our word for it, let the data speak for itself!

In addition to better and more reliable data, Skio is implementing new testing components throughout the platform so you can test out what works best for moving the needle for your subscribers. With our new in-house analytics, we want to offer you helpful insights on both short-term and long-term value adds. With subscriptions, you are investing in the long game and we’re excited to introduce more tools throughout 2023 to track how our features increase retention, reduce churn, increase AOV, increase LTV, and help your support teams with inbound tickets and requests.
