European Retailers Choosing Omniture to Increase Online Revenue

Omniture Attracts 25 New Leading European Retailers During the Past Year

LONDON--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimisation software, is fast establishing itself as the Web analytics provider of choice for online retailers in Europe. Omniture's presence in the retail sector has grown at a strong pace, with the company signing up 25 retailers in the past 12 months.

Major retail businesses choosing Omniture for their online business this year include: Arcadia, BAUR Versand GmbH, Blacks Leisure, Carphone Warehouse Damart, Burberry, FNAC, Look Fantastic, Sony, The Cotswold Company and Virgin Vie.

Recent news from Forrester shows that the online retail market in Europe is projected to grow by 58 percent year on year in 2007. Web analytics plays a pivotal role in the online retail world, allowing retailers to track and measure customer behaviour, and also to measure the impact of their external marketing initiatives such as affiliate and search marketing campaigns. For retailers, a crucial component of any Web analytics service is real-time reporting, as companies must be able to spot emerging trends and customers buying patterns as they happen. By delivering exactly what customers want, retailers can yield a higher return on investment from their Web sites and maximise revenue.

"Forward-thinking retailers are taking advantage of our experience in this sector and are making the most of their online channels," said Neil Weston, vice president and general manager, Omniture EMEA. "One of the reasons why SiteCatalyst is so popular in this market is because its real-time reports allow retailers to be as responsive as possible to consumer buying patterns, which can change by the hour. By being in tune with how their customers are interacting with their Web sites, they can adjust the content, layout and presentation accordingly and maximise revenue."
