Apollo, the world’s first analytics management system, is also a powerful data migration tool that you can now use for free to migrate from UA to GA4 or to set up a fresh GA4 implementation. Learn more about the benefits of using Apollo as data migration software.

Make data migration easy

Universal Analytics is sunsetting, and this puts pressure on brands to migrate to Google Analytics 4 by July 2023—and the sooner, the better, if you want to have year over year data to compare.

If your organization has limited budgeting or resourcing for implementing or if you don’t have the time to research how to migrate your basic UA implementation, we have good news for you. We can help make your data migration or GA4 setup easy for free!

Make data migration easy

Apollo is our proprietary analytics management system. It saves companies a lot of time, sweat, and dollars when it comes to implementing and maintaining their analytics.

We’ve written specifically about Apollo and GA4—how to install and manage GA4, how to map your existing GTM container to get better, faster migrations to GA4, and we’ve posted a quick video demonstrating how to migrate from UA to GA4 in under four minutes. But what we haven’t yet shared is details about our new tiered Apollo software offerings.

 

Choosing the right data migration tool for your business

When you choose a data migration tool for your business, you need to consider functionality, pricing, scalability, security, and what level of support you’ll need.

Apollo is created by experts who have collectively aided hundreds of analytics implementations and migrations. It is informed by industry leaders with Google Premier Partner status, meaning we’re among Google’s most trusted partners, and we live at the forefront of understanding GA4.

To date, we’ve only offered the Full Access tier for Apollo, but we recognize that different brands have different needs, so this week we’ve launched Apollo Free.

Now, for free, you can create Apollo properties to support simple GA4 migration implementations, or you can also start a GA4 implementation off fresh. If you are looking to migrate your UA custom dimensions and metrics to GA4, it is worth noting that the Full Access Apollo tier is going to be your best option.

In the coming months, we’ll be launching Migration Quick Starts and a Design & Document tier for ongoing management. We’ll also be offering four levels of Apollo customer support—basic (free!), standard, premium, and custom. Stay tuned for new details or sign up for Apollo Free now. The choice is yours.
