Mouseflow vs Segment: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mouseflow as "Watch your visitors interact with your site, live". Mouseflow records videos of your site visitors and generates heatmaps highlighting areas users are clicking, scrolling and ignoring. Immerse yourself in their behavior to maximize conversions and customer satisfaction. On the other hand, Segment is detailed as "A single hub to collect, translate and send your data with the flip of a switch". Segment is a single hub for customer data. Collect your data in one place, then send it to more than 100 third-party tools, internal systems, or Amazon Redshift with the flip of a switch.

Mouseflow can be classified as a tool in the "Heatmap Analytics" category, while Segment is grouped under "Analytics Integrator".

Some of the features offered by Mouseflow are:

      How developers use Mouseflow and Segment

      I’ve known Peter at Segment for about a year now. I think I first got wind of Segment through their Analytics Academy. Segment seemed like it could be really useful for folks that have a lot of analytics solutions. For us, it was more of a future-proof sort of thing. Where I knew we’d need more analytics (by more, I mean something other than Google Analytics) eventually so this seemed like an easy way to add new ones later on. It’s definitely been useful so far and I’m looking forward to using it more as we add more analytics solutions.

      Instead of going back and forth integrating 3rd party scripts, Segment let me set up tracking once then I could switch all other tools on from their control panel. Made it easier to get Mixpanel, Intercom, Olark etc. up and running without touching code.

      Even the free trial has proved useful. Enabling us to see potential UX issues in the use of the site.
