Customer insights lead to improved product experience for Wheelhouse
Wheelhouse builds a SaaS pricing optimization platform for hosts on home-sharing platforms like AirBnb. The solution offers an advanced machine learning backend which allows hosts to optimize the prices of their listings with respect to surrounding properties. The Wheelhouse team’s goal is to expose this complex functionality as a simple, intuitive interface to their users.
Wheelhouse’s advanced platform has led to some growing pains. “We need to expose a complex set of controls to people who tend to be less technical,” Greg said. He and his team needed a way of understanding whether their users really understood what the platform offered.
A solution found in LogRocket
Greg discovered LogRocket while exploring analytics tools for their app. “It’s pretty amazing to be able to replay our users’ experience,” Greg said. With LogRocket, they “were able to instantly see how users experience new flows in the app, and make changes as needed.”

After launching a new onboarding flow, Greg and his team wanted to understand how and why users were falling out of the funnel. Using LogRocket, they were able to notice a few places of confusion and make the appropriate changes. “We were able to signficantly improve onboarding conversion rates”, Greg said, “typical analytics tools wouldn’t have even gotten us close.”
