London, 5 October 2006 - Lastminute.com has achieved a 28 per cent increase in look-to-book conversion rates through its Web site, since implementing Omniture’s Web analytics and business optimisation tool, SiteCatalyst®. The company has also seen a 700 per cent increase in click-throughs for newly-developed navigation tabs, penetrating into targeted areas of the lastminute.com Web site—representing a substantial increase in offer exposure and sales potential.

More than 200,000 unique visitors from the UK alone visit lastminute.com properties every day. With Omniture SiteCatalyst, lastminute.com receives insight into the behaviour of their online customers—valuable visibility that provides lastminute.com with the information they need to provide their customers with the best online experience possible. Among the many questions lastminute.com uses SiteCatalyst to analyse include: what marketing activities drive customers to the site; why some people make a booking; and why and where people drop off the site. And because lastminute.com now has visibility into how customers interact with the site, the company has been able to make both design and navigation changes to their Web site that increase profitability.

“SiteCatalyst allows us to make quick decisions on what is and what isn’t working on our Web site. It’s completely embedded within our business,” says Duncan Horton, Head of Search Marketing and Site Management, lastminute.com. “On a merchandising level, it allows us to identify and concentrate on the products that yield better conversions and margins. The visibility Omniture provides is amazing—it’s like someone turning on the light in a dark room.”

To maintain and grow their leadership position in the highly competitive travel industry, lastminute.com uses SiteCatalyst to create up-sell opportunities across the different product offering categories, for example, encouraging customers who are making a lifestyle booking, such as a theatre ticket or restaurant booking, also to make a travel booking, and vice versa. Additionally, if lastminute.com sees that holidays to a particular destination are selling really well, Horton and his team can give that destination more prominence in the newsletter that goes out. Or they can change their search keywords to reflect what consumers are showing the most interest in.

“Understanding how your customers interact with your site yields real commercial benefit,” says Neil Weston, vice president and general manager, EMEA, Omniture. “Lastminute.com analyses how its customers use the site and then apply that learning to make a difference to its bottom line. That’s smart use of resource.”
