GameFly.com Chooses Omniture Test&Target to Improve Online Customer Experience and Increase Registration

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced that GameFly.com has selected Omniture Test&Target to improve its users' online video game rental experience and provide quantifiable results from its new online marketing campaigns. GameFly is the leading video game rental service. Consumers sign up online and select the games they want from over 5000 of the latest and classic video games across nine platforms. GameFly will use Omniture Test&Target to analyze online marketing campaigns showcasing GameFly's large selection of video game titles. By testing and measuring the effectiveness of each campaign, GameFly can better understand which content leads to higher customer conversion.

GameFly is already utilizing Omniture Test&Target for A/B and multivariate tests on its home and landing pages, including registration tests and video game offers for Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony game consoles. Future campaigns will focus on targeted content that is relevant to each of their customers based on the specific gaming consoles they own and the video titles that are of most interest to them.

"It is critical that GameFly continually optimize its marketing efforts to maximize business wins," said Neil Seth, senior vice president, product development & technology. "Omniture Test&Target helps show us what changes to our site are impacting conversion and bottom-line revenue. In addition, we can better cater to our customers' needs with individual offers and promotions that are targeted specifically to them."

The NPD Group estimates that the video game industry now takes in $18 billion annually. Figures also indicate that the size of the gaming audience continues to grow. In 2007, 72 percent of 6-to-44 year-olds played video games, up from 64 percent in 2006.

"We believe video games continue to experience growth as consumers are spending more of their entertainment dollars at home," said Chris Harrington, president, worldwide sales and client services at Omniture. "With Omniture Test&Target, GameFly.com can better serve the unique needs of its members by ultimately targeting the right game title to the right customer."
