    MichaelfromClearcode

    We've been using Piwik PRO since 2013 and are very happy with it. Piwik PRO offers an analytics platform, tag manager, CMP, and CDP, which allows us to run all of our web analytics activities from one place. One of the main reasons why we use Piwik PRO instead of Google Analytics is because it's a privacy-compliant analytics suite, plus it's very easy to use.
