<p>TWICKENHAM and WARWICK, UK – February 23rd 2009 - Enterprise marketing software provider Neolane and marketing data analysis software company Apteco, today announced a technology partnership designed to help one-another’s customers optimise their direct marketing campaigns.</p>

<p>The companies have integrated Apteco’s popular FastStats™ marketing data analysis and predictive modelling software with Neolane’s customer communication and marketing automation software. The development enables Neolane to offer its users enhanced ‘train of thought’ marketing analytics and data visualisation techniques for customer segmentation, data mining, predictive modelling and profiling. Apteco will offer its FastStats users the opportunity to consider Neolane.</p>

<p>“The Apteco and Neolane partnership means customers of our two companies can create Neolane automated communications that are systematically guided by the modern, intuitive analysis and modelling capabilities of FastStats,” said James Alty, managing director of Apteco. “We have achieved a seamless bi-directional integration between the products, meaning that as campaigns run, responses captured across multiple channels will feed back from Neolane to FastStats for further profiling.”</p>

<p>FastStats provides fast, visual and truly easy to use data analysis with an intuitive drag and drop interface and wizards that guide users through powerful analysis. Neolane provides marketers with a single, open platform encompassing all the essentials for managing personalised-content, cross-channel campaigns (email, direct mail, call centre, SMS and MMS), leads, dynamic content, marketing resources, customer data and analytics.</p>
