Web Analytics for


Colleges and Universities run lots of websites and web-based applications, both internally and externally. Angelfish is a secure web analytics solution which helps you understand how individuals interact with these sites.

Angelfish provides many other benefits for higher ed institutions, like:

Data Security

Angelfish is secure, on-premises web analytics software – you install and manage it in your own environment, and data is kept within the confines of your network. Many of the new data privacy regulations don’t apply to Angelfish!

Track Any Website

Angelfish creates detailed usage reports for anything that runs on a web server and creates an access log, like Intranet sites, web applications, public websites, SharePoint, financial and/or HR portals, CDNs, and CRMs. See more examples on our Solutions Page.

No Tagging Required

Angelfish *can* use JavaScript tagging, but it doesn’t *have* to. Plus, JavaScript page tags aren’t always available in secure environments. Angelfish can track visitors with page tags, session ID cookies, usernames, or IP address & user agent combos.

Process Historical Data

If you have web access logs for one of your websites from 2 years ago, you can process them in Angelfish. This works in the trial version too – try it!

Track Document Access

Angelfish shows you a list of every opened document (PDF, Excel, Word, etc.) and page on your website. And if the username is available, Angelfish shows you who accessed each document or page.

Traffic Spike Analysis

Angelfish lets you select a time frame as short as a single second. If you want to see details about the visitor who filled out the contact form on your website yesterday morning at 10:17:49 AM, Angelfish will show you all site activity that occurred during that particular second.

Broken Links

Web access logs contain a bunch of great information, like Broken Links. Angelfish tells you if the link is external or on your site, the referring page, the error page, and more.

Mobile Device Usage

Are your visitors using mobile devices to access your sites? Angelfish categorizes all visits as Mobile/Tablet or Desktop, with drilldown to browsers, platforms, usernames, and all other segments.

Google Analytics Backup Solution

If your institution uses Google Analytics, you can store a backup copy of the data sent to Google and process it with Angelfish. This lets you see individual visitor details in Angelfish without having to roll out new JavaScript tags.

No Sampled Data

Do you occasionally see a “this report is based on X% of visits” message in Google Analytics? You won’t see this message in Angelfish. When working with large datasets, Angelfish shows you everything.

Robust API

The API is a core component of Angelfish and provides full access to the underlying data structure. With the API, you can automatically export data from Angelfish into reporting dashboards and external applications.
