Web analytics company ClickTracks new version adds API data integration, enhanced performance to meet needs of large web sites

London, UK ---- ClickTracks Analytics, Inc., recognized innovators in the field of web site analytics has released version 6.5 of its Web metrics service. The new version incorporates a number of new features and enhancements designed specifically for the needs of sophisticated marketers deploying high-traffic ecommerce and large-scale web sites.

"The increased demand for ClickTracks from large-scale site owners has been met with a significantly re-designed processing engine. Yet, we continue to offer ad-hoc real-time segmentation that sets ClickTracks apart from other solutions”, explains John Marshall, ClickTracks' founder and CEO.

“These same marketers have told us that they need to be able to use ClickTracks data within their own proprietary environments, and we've responded with the addition of application programming interface (API) technology that enables marketers to integrate ClickTracks' data with their other software applications,” Marshall added.
