Enhancing CMP functionality with Piwik PRO

The native integration between Cookie Information’s Consent Management Platform (CMP) and Piwik PRO’s Tag Manager is a significant milestone in our continuous effort to enhance the functionality and user experience of our CMP.

Integrating the two platforms adds value for current and future Cookie Information clients considering – or already using – Piwik PRO Tag Manager by simplifying the technical setup process and improving user-friendliness.

Adding to or migrating your analytics stack has never been easier, as the integration gives you access to the rest of the Piwik PRO Analytics Suite. Now you have more freedom to choose the ideal setup for your business.  

What is Piwik PRO?

Piwik PRO is the specialist AdTech and MarTech company behind the Piwik PRO Analytics Suite: a versatile and flexible platform including Analytics, Tag Manager, and a Customer Data Platform.

Designed for marketers and analysts, the platform lets you collect, connect, analyze and act on your data – while enabling compliance with the strictest security policies and privacy regulations.

A dedicated tag and built-in analytics

With the addition of a dedicated Cookie Information tag in Piwik PRO Tag Manager, setting up and using the two products together is now significantly easier and more efficient.
The Cookie Information tag automatically maps cookie categories from your CMP to consent types in Piwik PRO. This allows you to trigger tags in Piwik PRO Tag Manager based on consents collected via your cookie banner.

Insights from Cookie Information’s CMP are gathered directly in the Piwik PRO platform, which provides built-in analytics and reporting functionality.  It lets you monitor and optimize your consent rates by giving you access to consent statistics, including:
  • Consent form impressions: the number of times the consent form was displayed to visitors.
  • User consent decisions: the amount of visitors who consented for the first time, gave granular consent, no consent, or made no consent decision.

Through access to all other modules and functionalities of the Piwik PRO Analytics Suite*, Cookie Information clients will further benefit from:

  • Complete and accurate data: Piwik PRO Analytics lets you collect and analyze high-quality marketing insights, helping you optimize content, campaigns, user flows, and budgets. Anonymized tracking methods allow you to reduce blind spots when visitors decline or ignore consent.
  • Data segmentation and activation: Piwik PRO’s Customer Data Platform lets you create single-customer profiles and segment them into custom audiences. Activate audiences to deliver personalized ads, campaigns, and more.


*Depending on the license; Customer Data Platform requires an additional license. All other modules are available in the free Core plan.
