Asset Connect educates new customers with Usetiful onboarding experiences


Asset Connect is an online platform for energy asset monitoring and management. Customers can connect their electricity generating assets, such as wind, solar or hydroelectric power plants, without having to buy additional hardware. Asset Connect presents energy production reports in a powerful dashboard, and Usetiful onboarding tours are used to guide new users to connect their assets, create and view reports and more.

The Product tours are organized into a User Onboarding Checklist.

Asset Connect uses the learn-by-doing approach to educating new customers. In some of their tours there are no “next” or “previous'' buttons for users to navigate through tour steps. Instead, users are nudged towards completing actions by themselves, and this way learning the possibilities of the platform.

The Product Tour seamlessly integrates into the user experience. Tour content flexibly adapts as the user progresses into the product, recommending the next steps, but leaving users to explore the platform on their own. With this design principle, guided onboarding feels like an integral part of the product.

Having a great user onboarding experience is crucial to increase feature discovery and user adoption. Even more so in the case of online dashboards, such as Asset Connect.

If you are looking for an efficient way to educate and retain users, onboarding tours and user onboarding checklists are the best choice to help new users in a delightful, easy to implement and measurable way.

Pet Media Group Saw a 161% Increase in User Activation and Feature Adoption With Usetiful Onboarding

  Pet Media Group is the world’s largest operator of online marketplaces within the pet sector. They are based in Stockholm, Sweden, but they operate six major dog or horse marketplaces across Europe, including the UK’s largest pet marketplace (and the world’s second-largest), Pets4Homes. Other notable pet marketplaces they run are Sweden’s Hästnet, the largest equestrian marketplace in Scandinavia, and MundoAnimalia in Spain. The business was started by two friends, Eyass Shakrah and Axel Lagercrantz. The pair felt that the existing processes of buying and selling pets were overly complex and too open to poor outcomes for breeders, buyers, and, worst of all, the pets themselves.  Their mission is to use technology to create a better, safer, and more efficient way for people to buy pets, but without compromising on animal welfare. Through smart partnerships and acquisitions, Pet Media Group has created or invested in market-leading brands and helped modernize the European pet market.
