Kameleoon is a solution offered in SaaS mode (Software as a Service). Installation is therefore extremely easy and quick (one line of HTML code has to be added to your pages), without requiring a long integration project. Kameleoon is obviously compatible with tag managers.
All current browsers on the market are supported in visitor mode (the normal traffic on your web site). Some older versions (especially Explorer 7 and older) are eliminated from the tested traffic, but this does not stop them from browsing the site normally (they are simply not counted in the A/B test).
In editing mode (when you use Kameleoon to configure the tests), we recommend the latest version of Chrome, but you may also use recent versions of Firefox, Safari, Opera or Internet Explorer.
Simply visit your website with your browser. Once the page has loaded, press [Shift + F2] and the Kameleoon interface will load directly.
For Macintosh users: Press [fn + Shift + F2], as pressing [F2] without [fn] will automatically adjust the brightness of your screen.
For Opera users: It is possible that the [Shift + [F2] shortcut has already been allocated to Opera. In this case, delete it (go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Short cuts) or use the URL method described below.
If the keyboard shortcut does not work for you, you can add #kameleoon=true at the end of your URL and reload the page. Kameleoon will launch in editing mode.
There is a short delay due to our CDN (Content Delivery Network) and optimisation system. The test will be active two hours after its launch, at the latest. This could mean that the statistics are not instantly reported in your Analytics. This is nothing to worry about.
The variation displayed to a visitor will be consistent in case of a webpage reloading or a subsequent visit.
We consider that the reporting of an A/B test should be done in the Web Analytics solution that you are already using (such as Google Analytics, AT Internet or Adobe Omniture). This is, in fact, the only way to ensure that you have the capacity required for an in-depth analysis of the behavior of the visitors subjected to the A/B tests (especially in terms of segmentation). Kameleoon therefore integrates into the platform that you are already using to analyse your traffic (whether it is a market solution or an internally-developed solution), and you will see the results on the platform's back-office. No new tool to learn!
It is very difficult to say how long a test lasts as it highly depends on the test: Total traffic, type of visitors, conversion objectives, etc. In all cases, we recommend that a test be left to run for at least a week, if possible, as this will allow us to observe the effects of the test on the traffic over weekends as well as during the working week. Kameleoon includes statistical decision-making tools, for example.
We are already working seamlessly with some of the top 20 French sites in terms of traffic (millions of visitors per month). Kameleoon files are stored on a CDN that is optimised to serve static content. On the A/B testing data reporting side, since we send this data to third-party systems (Google Analytics, AT Internet, NX Analyzer...), no call goes through our servers. That means you don't have to worry about performance.
As our infrastructure is based on a CDN, redundancy is ensured and the rate of availability is above 99.99%. Even if the CDN servers crash, your website will continue to function; at most, the A/B tests in progress would no longer be available.
The A/B test can easily be tracked on iPhone, iPad or Android devices.
