Lippupiste Ltd. Turns to Omniture to Secure Strategic Partnerships and Increase Online Revenue

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK--(Marketwire - April 17, 2008) - Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimisation software, today announced it has been chosen by Finland-based ticket sales company, Lippupiste Ltd., to help the company secure strategic partnerships with event organisers, and increase user registrations and online sales. Lippupiste Ltd. will implement the Web analytics solution, Omniture SiteCatalyst, in order to measure site users' behavior, improve effectiveness of marketing campaigns and increase visibility on its Web site -- www.lippu.fi.

Lippupiste Ltd. currently sells tickets via the Internet, telephone and its box office, but is keen to direct more customers to its online operation. The company's Web site has 150,000 registered users, and sells tickets for cultural events, such as the theatre and the opera -- where it commands a 90 per cent market share -- and also for sports and entertainment events.

Forging successful partnerships with event organisers is crucial for Lippupiste Ltd., as it is through these alliances that the company is allocated tickets to sell on its Web site. By implementing leading Web analytics technology, Lippupiste Ltd. can measure visitor behaviour in real-time, allowing it to respond immediately to changing visitor patterns and adjust online marketing and promotional activity accordingly. This detailed understanding of the site user will help Lippupiste Ltd. better serve content that is relevant and enticing to each visitor, helping it sell more tickets and generate higher revenue for the company and its partners.

SiteCatalyst was selected by Lippupiste Ltd. because it provides real-time data analysis and detailed, easy-to-use reports, which the company can present to its existing and potential partners to demonstrate the effectiveness of its Web site and marketing campaigns.

The reports generated by SiteCatalyst will show Lippupiste Ltd. what is happening online, including how and where visitors are arriving at the site; how visitors are navigating their way through the portal; and where and why visitors are dropping off the site.

"Omniture will show us what is working on the Web site and what is not. It will also highlight which of our marketing campaigns are delivering the best ROI. Armed with this data, we can ensure that we continue to invest in the most effective campaigns, while redirecting funds from underperforming campaigns to initiatives that will help grow the business," comments Kimmo Vihanto, marketing manager, Lippupiste Ltd.

Kimmo continued, "By implementing such sophisticated technology, we are also able to demonstrate to event organisers that we are in the strongest position possible to sell their tickets and establish ourselves as the ticket partner of choice."

"Omniture has a wealth of experience in the retail sector, which Lippupiste Ltd. is tapping in to. The company can respond to changing user patterns as and when they happen, giving it a competitive advantage," comments Jesper Lindhardt, general manager, Nordics and Benelux, Omniture. "Lippupiste Ltd. is using SiteCatalyst not only to improve its online presence and marketing initiatives, but also as a tool to strengthen its existing business relationships and help secure new accounts."
