What is Matomo?

Matomo (formerly Piwik) is a web analytics platform that provides detailed reports about visitors on your website. It can be used to track visitor behavior, analyze trends and identify opportunities for improvement. It also functions as a Google Tag Manager alternative.

Matomo is self-hosted and can be integrated into your site via API or Javascript. The API integration allows you to track the data without impacting page performance, although it does lack some event tracking features. Additionally, Matomo is compatible with Google Analytics and has several extensions available to synchronize with Google or other systems server-side.


Integrating Matomo into your Scipio ERP system offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • Faster page load time
  • Unrivaled privacy protection for both you and your customers (You always know which data is collected, who you share it with and where it is stored)
  • Google Tag Manager alternative included
  • Access to detailed insights about how customers interact with your site
  • Ability to optimize campaigns and target specific audiences
  • No impact on page performance when using the API integration
  • Compatibility with Google Analytics and other systems server-side
