Enhancing Decision-Making and Scalability with Polar Analytics

Connor Hitchcock, the Founder and CEO of a company offering university-specific apparel, has successfully expanded his business operations since embracing Polar Analytics. Starting from humble beginnings in his basement during college, Hitchcock spotted a niche in the market, offering online sales and school-specific designs where traditional suppliers were not.

The Early Days: Pre-Polar Pain Points

Hitchcock explains, "Scaling our marketing activities and adding more schools to our portfolio were significant challenges. We needed a precise view of attribution and daily updates on blended Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC). Prior to Polar Analytics, our monitoring was manual, and we only conducted monthly reporting through spreadsheets, which made tracking our growth across different platforms cumbersome."

"We needed a solution that could analyze performance by product collection. The options Polar Analytics offered, such as Lifetime Value (LTV) & Cohorts analysis, along with their daily 'Views' feature for tracking our subscription campaigns' performance, appealed to us."


Polar is something we plan to use for a long time because it helps drive better decisions. I'm in there every day, I feel accurate!
