By Combining Web Analytics and Its Leading Ad Serving Solution Real Media Gains a Leadership Position in the Emerging Field of Audience Management
LONDON--June 26, 2003--Real Media Europe, a division of 24/7 Real Media, Inc. (Nasdaq: TFSM), a leading provider of interactive marketing services and technologies to publishers and marketers, today announced the launch of Open Insight, a next generation Web analytics tool. The introduction of Open Insight into Real Media`s existing suite of technology solutions and services gives the Company a dominant position as the one-stop-shop for the solutions and tools needed to address the three principal components of interactive communication: advertising, content and audience management.
Open Insight is a powerful and flexible Web analytics solution that helps companies measure, analyze and monetize their interactive audience on their Web site in real time. Open Insight`s unique and flexible Taxonomy which creates reports for Web publishers and marketers in ordinary language used in their business and not in the language of their Web server, was developed with marketing and sales professionals in mind. Among other functions, Open Insight`s platform enables marketers and IT professionals to perform behavioural segmentation and click stream analysis. It also enables marketers and publishers to leverage behavioural information across other applications such as e-commerce or content.
In combination with Open AdStream(R), Real Media`s leading ad serving platform, Open Insight enables publishers to analyze audience information and tie-in advertising delivery, providing total visibility on audience behaviour. Real Media offers Open Insight in two versions: as an outsourced solution hosted in Real Media`s data centers, or as a locally-managed application, which the customer can install in its own operating environment. This provides the customer with the flexibility to select the most efficient and cost-effective solution, while ensuring that the software is maintained, monitored and secure."
John Piccone, director technology sales, Real Media Europe, said, "Open Insight uses the latest technologies to enable data and audience behaviour information to be integrated into a host of other products. Open Insight complements our existing advertising delivery platform perfectly, giving our clients an important edge. Based on the information it provides, a client can build new specially targeted advertising campaigns. I am very excited about bringing this powerful combination to the online advertising market."
