-- Chestnuts Roasting By An Open Netflame ® --
Mountain View, CA – December 9, 2003 – Fireclick, a provider of comprehensive yet easy-to-use Web analytics solutions, today announced a sleigh full of new customers had deployed the company’s Netflame Web analytics service to prepare for a highly anticipated online holiday shopping season. This time of year is indeed a magical time for retailers and the 2003 holiday ramp-up provided Fireclick with a Q3 that resulted in revenue growth of more than 130% from the year-ago period and almost 30% more than the most recent quarter. This marks the company’s eighth consecutive quarter of record-breaking revenue and customer adoption.
Joining the rapidly growing roster of Fireclick customers are dozens of leading multi-channel retailers including Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Famous Footwear, Florist.com, Cornerstone Brands’ TravelSmith, InterVideo, DivX, Executive Essentials, PaperZone, MPSuperStore.com, Jos. A Bank, Mobility Electronics, AtomicPark, and more.
Holiday shopping traffic monitored by the Netflame service for the past two seasons has quadrupled each year. This year Fireclick anticipates a 5X increase in holiday traffic over 2002, and has provisioned enough capacity for more than 10X, indicative of customer growth and bullish holiday season projections.
