Webtrends Helps Spirit Airlines Take Customer Experience to New Heights

Airline Leverages Webtrends Open Exchange Integrating Webtrends Analytics, Visitor Data Mart, and Optimize With Yesmail Email Marketing Solutions

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Webtrends, an enterprise customer intelligence company, today announced that Spirit Airlines, the largest Ultra Low Cost Carrier (ULCC) in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, will leverage Webtrends Analytics, Visitor Data Mart, and Optimize offerings together to help drive a better customer experience online. Spirit Airlines will also integrate Webtrends Analytics with Yesmail's (an Infogroup company) (NASDAQ: IUSA) Enterprise email marketing platform. Together, these products and partners will enable Spirit Airlines to execute sophisticated marketing campaigns, and maximize analytics data to make actionable decisions.

Spirit Airlines has engaged with Webtrends because they were in need of a truly open customer intelligence platform that easily integrates with other marketing partners. The Webtrends Open Exchange allows this. The end result is an open framework of tools working together and sharing information to achieve more value across Spirit Airlines' marketing investments.

"The competition within the airline industry is incredibly fierce, and it is critical for us to go beyond that of which our customers demand," said Spirit Airlines' Senior Director of Consumer Marketing Bobby Schroeter. "We are excited to work with Webtrends as our customer intelligence vendor. With Webtrends' flexible architecture and ease of use, we are able to integrate web analytics in our daily processes and fully expect this to help drive our marketing efforts across the board. In leveraging Webtrends, we have access to innovative technology and expertise that enable us to enhance the efficiency of our business."

Webtrends Optimize and Visitor Data Mart Together:

Through their implementation, Spirit Airlines will use Webtrends Optimize to execute multivariate testing, segmentation and customer targeting to maximize revenue and streamline the purchase processes in regard to online and offline marketing activities. This, combined with rich segment data extracted from Webtrends Visitor Data Mart, enables Spirit Airlines to be ultra competitive while delivering a superior customer experience.

Webtrends Analytics 9 and Yesmail Integration:

Spirit Airlines will also integrate Webtrends Analytics 9 with Yesmail to achieve true closed loop re-marketing. The company is targeting low-utilization segments specifically and will also integrate the products with their custom voucher and coupon marketing system.

"Webtrends is focused on providing our customers the most useful tools that will help provide them with the most successful campaigns, regardless of who their other marketing partners are," said Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, vice president, marketing, Webtrends. "Sprit Airlines represents an exciting example of what the Webtrends Open Exchange is all about.
