Piwik lets you access reports showing how your Intranet content is accessed, so you can learn to improve the content and experience for your your users and colleagues using the websites. It provides overview of traffic and general patterns and insights, as well as allowing to drill down to visitor paths.

How to install Intranet Web Analytics software?

First, download and install Piwik on your internal server.

Once Piwik is installed, to track visits with Piwik you need to copy paste a short javascript code in the website. If you use a Content Management System or an Ecommerce Software, check out the list of Piwik integration modules which would save you some time with the initial setup.

If you have inserted the Javascript code in Piwik, wait for your first visitors, and you would soon see a dashboard such as this Piwik dashboard:
