LONDON, UK and AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (April 06, 2005) - WebSideStory, a leading provider of on-demand web analytics, and Falk eSolutions AG, a leading provider of online ad-serving and e-mail delivery solutions, today announced a technology partnership to deliver integrated digital marketing solutions for publishers, agencies and advertisers. The integration of Falk’s AdSolution and MailSolution products with WebSideStory’s HBX On-Demand Web Analytics will enable joint clients to better measure their online campaigns and increase overall marketing return on investment. Under the agreement, Falk will use WebSideStory’s Stream APIs (application programming interfaces) to enable clients to easily track their digital campaigns and to get detailed web analytics reports integrated right into their Falk AdSolution interface.

“This partnership offers many advantages,” said Thomas Falk, CEO of Falk. “These days, marketers require greater visibility on how advertising is driving web site activity and how that behaviour contributes to the bottom line. With WebSideStory, they get award-winning analytics, linked right into Falk’s leading ad server – a powerful combination.”

WebSideStory currently has more than 20 Stream partners, including e-mail service providers, search engine marketing firms, behavioural targeting companies, and ad-serving networks.
