Webtrends and Optaros Announce Partnership

Webtrends Analytics 9 Included in Optaros' OCentric SaaS Ecommerce Platform and Deployed at Several Clients

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - August 11, 2010) - Webtrends, an enterprise customer intelligence company and Optaros, an ecommerce solution provider, today announced a partnership that includes Webtrends Analytics 9 in Optaros' OCentric SaaS ecommerce platform. OCentric is the first ecommerce platform that provides the simplicity of SaaS with the flexibility of open source software.

OCentric enables brands and retailers to create new ecommerce experiences that combine content, commerce and community to outperform their peers. Webtrends provides OCentric customers with the ability to centrally analyze usage data across web sites, social networks such as Facebook, and mobile applications -- a key challenge facing brands and retailers today.

Webtrends Analytics 9 is already integrated into OCentric and being deployed for several clients this quarter. Optaros provides a full-service offering to support clients' analytic, testing and targeting needs leveraging Webtrends products. 

"As content, commerce and communities come together on the web, Webtrends shares in Optaros' vision that commerce and marketing needs are unique by company," said James McDermott, vice president of partnerships, Webtrends. "Commerce on the web isn't easy, and neither is analytics and measurement. Optaros and Webtrends understand this and bring that custom mindset to our respective customers."

"We chose Webtrends for their open web services architecture and their leadership in cross-channel analytics (website, social, mobile, etc.)," said Marc Osofsky, vice president of global marketing at Optaros. "Our clients will clearly benefit from this partnership." 

Optaros and Webtrends provide customers the following benefits:

  • A turnkey solution: Pre-integrated into OCentric and ready to go as a SaaS platform
  • Expertise in new ecommerce concepts: Private Sales (Rue La La, 36Boutiques), Social Loyalty (Lockerz), etc.
  • SaaS model: No need to buy software and hire a team of analysts and developers
  • Social: Webtrends is one of the first analytics providers to aggregate data from Facebook and company-controlled websites
  • Mobile: Webtrends is one of the first analytics providers to provide an SDK to capture mobile analytics and combine this with web and social data
