Newbury, Berkshire, July 20th, 2005 - Web intelligence has grown beyond analysing what pages were clicked on and how long a visitor stayed there. Today, organisations need to be seeking much more in-depth intelligence – real-time behavioural characteristics of their website visitors.

To meet these challenges, Nucleus, the brand experience consultancy and the name behind many of the world’s top websites (such as the recently launched Luxury ExplorerTM), has today announced a major strategic partnership with speed-trap Limited, the Berkshire-based e-business intelligence company. Integrating speed-trap’s e-business intelligence suite ‘Prophet’ within the services Nucleus provides its clients will give them substantially improved real-time business intelligence that goes far beyond conventional web analytics and tracking management information.

Adam Smith, MD of Nucleus Managed Services, the outsourced internet operations division of Nucleus Limited, says it is imperative for all businesses with a strong internet presence to continually seek more accurate and meaningful data about their existing and potential customers. “Incorporating speed-trap’s ‘Prophet’ into our systems helps us to understand customer behaviour online and thereby improve conversion rates on our e-commerce sites”, explains Mr Smith. “In the past 12 months, we have generated more than $100million in online revenues for our travel clients, and we expect to drive this forward given that we will be able to measure and manage every facet of their online business”.

Malcolm Duckett, VP of Marketing and Operations at speed-trap adds that companies must ensure that the objectives for their online assets are continually being met. “There is too much at stake to assume the website is achieving maximum return simply by taking account of the number of hits, the pages visited and the time spent on the site”, he says. “Our partnership with Nucleus will provide its clients with the most sophisticated website analytical tools available.”
