How To Use The IRP App

As every business owner and ecommerce manager knows, numbers are important. We have developed the IRP App so that you can view the key numbers about your business wherever you are.

Simply log in to the App on your phone and you can see at a glance the core sales data for your business (including analysis by date, product, category, brand, customer origins and devices), KPIs such as CPA, AOV, CLV, Bounce Rates and Conversion Rates, projected sales versus targets, IRP DeepAgent alert messages and lost revenue analysis, and a comprehensive analysis of your Traffic Source and Service Provider performance.

It’s a great way to keep right up to date with what’s happening on your site and in your business.

PREREQUISITES

To access the IRP App there are two prerequisites:

  1. You must be a registered Admin User on IRP Admin.
  2. The Admin User Group to which you belong must have the Special Permission enabled called ‘Allow Admin Management Overview’.

LOGGING IN TO THE IRP APP

To log in to the IRP App on your phone (or other device), follow these steps:

IRP App Login Screen
IRP App Log In Button
  1. Go to the following URL:
    https://Your-IRP-Website/IRPApp/Login.aspx
  2. The login screen appears as follows:

  3. Enter your IRP Admin Username and Password. These are the same permissions you use for logging in to the desktop version of your IRP.
  4. Click the Sign In button:

  5. The first time you open the App, you should see a pop-up message that explains how to add the App to your home screen on your device. The exact message that you see depends on the type of device (iPhone, Android, etc.) and browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) that you are using. Here is a Firefox example:

    This states: “To add this web app to the home screen open the browser option menu and tap on Add to homescreen”. You will also see other device-specific and browser-specific text.
  6. Close the pop-up message and you will see the Key Metrics screen. This is described in the sections that follow.
