Univé is a Dutch insurance company that offers insurance, financial products, and services to both consumers and businesses. The company is focused on providing high-quality service and helping customers make responsible financial decisions. Since 2014, we have been working closely with Univé.

We have been working closely with Univé since 2014. One of the first projects we carried out was to merge app & web analytics into one report suite. After merging this data, it became possible to do analyses across the online domain, instead of in silos. Find out here how we tackled this process.

Univé wanted to create a 360-degree customer view. To achieve this, we extracted the data from the report suite and brought it together in a data platform. In this way, Univé can, after giving permission, offer its customers a personalised experience, optimise marketing activities and integrate machine learning in decision-making processes. They called in the help of our Technical Web Analysts for this.

Our approach

Integrating the web and app data into one data platform consisted of 3 steps:

1. Opening up data sources in Tealium serverside

Initially, the app and web data was sent directly to Adobe Analytics. We added a step to this: the data now goes through Tealium serverside to Adobe Analytics. For example, the app and web data come together before the analytics source. The advantage of this is that all data goes through one central data platform. The data is processed and deployed centrally from this platform. For example, we can optimise the insurance rates for non-life insurance in certain regions. In this way, the user only sees the relevant pages.

2. Add visitor and consent stitching

To optimise the quality and reliability of the profiles, we applied visitor stitching and consent stitching. Visitor stitching ensures that Univé can recognise its customers when they navigate from the app to theweb environment or log in. Consent stitching ensures that the cookies on the website are automatically saved if the user has accepted them in the app.

3. Adding the app data in the web data models and sources

We integrated the app data into our web data models and sources in Tealiumand Microsoft Azure. Univé runs advanced analytics and machine learning models in Azure. Based on these insights, Univé can optimise marketing activities, prices and products.


The integration of the web and app data in Tealium contributes to the 360-degree customer view. With the help of Consent stitching, Univé can manage marketing campaigns better more efficiently and offer users a personalised experience. For example, Univé can provide customers who have already taken out insurance with information about service and the possibility of claiming damages. The customer will no longer receive marketing messages about taking out new car insurance.

This customer experience contributes to Univé's mission: to offer a personalised experience on all available channels. In the future we will also apply this personal user experience in the app.

Switching from Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4 (GA4)

On 14 October 2020, Google launched the new version of Analytics: Google Analytics 4 (GA4). Soon after the launch, it became clear that a number of important functionalities from Universal Analytics (GA3) were missing, and therefore the time to switch seemed far away. Fortunately, we see that the development team on the side of Google has not been idle. Some nice features have since been introduced within GA4 that have narrowed the gap between GA3 and GA4. This article answers the questions that are increasingly being asked about GA4.
