“SiteAdvance has made incredible progress in the market since its inception in June 2002, by growing an impressive client base of blue chip retailers and marketers, providing industry benchmarks for web site performance, integrating the product with email and ad serving for remarketing opportunities, and now, enhancing the solution’s core features and functionalities,” said Court Cunningham, Senior Vice President, Marketing Automation, DoubleClick. “We’re focusing considerable investment to meet the needs of our clients and prospective clients, and we’re delighted to roll out these important product updates that give greater flexibility to the users.

New features in DoubleClick SiteAdvance 3.0 include:
New User Interface
Modifications to the font size and overall colour scheme allow for easier use of SiteAdvance.
The new Executive Dashboard functionality can be used to configure and share reports across an organisation, including different KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that are relevant to a particular team of users. Examples of Dashboards that might be created are Executive Summary Dashboards, Marketing Dashboards, Site Traffic Monitoring Dashboards and Merchandising Dashboards.
The Query Tool allows users to configure their own reports and queries on the fly in an ad hoc environment, and save those reports for future use. Now, marketers can select the data they're most interested in seeing, from basic site statistics to in-depth customer and conversion information, and can also specify timeframe, sorting and filtering.
Additional Conversion Metrics for Traffic Driving Reports
SiteAdvance now includes reporting on conversions and revenue generated from search engine keywords and referring URLs.
In addition to these new features, SiteAdvance has long been integrated with DARTmail® and DART® for Advertisers (DFA), allowing marketers and publishers to correlate marketing and site traffic data. For example, marketers can automatically retarget customers who have abandoned a shopping cart with tailored messaging based on the customer's onsite behaviour.
