J.L. Halsey software brands Lyris UK and ClickTracks demonstrate pioneering approach to integrated email marketing, web analytics and web content management

Email marketing specialist Lyris UK (www.lyris.co.uk) and Web analytics expert ClickTracks (www.clicktracks.com), marketing technology products from J.L. Halsey, have taken the first step to establish their unique integrated approach to online marketing. Visitors to their joint customer forum on 3 October 2007 were given demonstrations and real-life examples of how next generation digital technology will enhance their ecommerce tactics and strategies.

The combined core strengths of Lyris and ClickTracks technologies is the only fully integrated offering of its kind and follows J.L.Halsey's stated goal to provide customers with a seamless platform for email marketing, Web analytics and Web content management. This intelligence will provide organisations with an in-depth understanding of how users respond to emails and their subsequent online behaviour, which will enable them to streamline their digital marketing offers and collateral as a result.

The keynote speaker at the event was Martin Bartle, a UK internet pioneer who has worked with companies including boo.com, antfactory.com and luxury online fashion success-story, NET-A-PORTER. Visitors also heard a selection of case studies from Lyris and ClickTracks customers including: Sadler's Wells' use of video as part of the online marketing mix to drive ticket sales; CreatorMail's inclusion of dynamic content in emails to increase return on investment for travel sector clients; online sports retailer Kitbag's best practise email marketing to double revenues; and VCCP's search engine campaigns for Somerfield.

Andrew Robinson, managing director of Lyris UK, commented: “The Lyris and ClickTracks offering goes far beyond the current industry trend for partnerships between email marketing and Web analytics companies. This is the definitive integrated business and will give marketers the ability to truly understand their customers' online behaviour. As a result they are better equipped to provide them with offers and information that are timely, relevant and personal – and encourage action.”

Peter Biro, chief operating officer for J.L. Halsey, said: “The jointly hosted event confirms our commitment to excellence in the online arena via the integration of our brands’ proven offerings and expertise. It is also critical to illustrate to customers how the integration of Lyris and ClickTracks products will deliver real benefits to them.”
