Advanced Post-Click and Post-View Action Tracking and Reporting Significantly Reduces IT-Related Costs and Tailors Ad Campaigns to Unique Needs of e-commerce Customers

LONDON, UK and RALEIGH, NC – August 29, 2005 – Accipiter Solutions, Inc., an online advertising technology innovator since 1996, today announced that ShareBuilder has adopted its outsourced ad management solution, AdManager Hosted. ShareBuilder, an online investment brokerage serving both beginning and experienced investors, is just one of an increasing number of e-commerce sites using AdManager Hosted to serve ad campaigns using a per-product approach rotated weekly.

Since implementing AdManager Hosted, ShareBuilder has significantly reduced IT-related costs associated with launching and managing ad campaigns across its commerce site. As a result, the company has been able to more effectively monitor, track, forecast, report, and analyze ad campaigns. Using AdManager’s advanced post-click and post-view action tracking and reporting technology, ShareBuilder has the unique ability to associate consumer ad interaction with subsequent consumer conversion events.

“AdManager allows us to quickly and easily tailor campaigns to match the unique needs of our customers,” said Brandon Potter, director of product management for ShareBuilder. “If the post-click reports generated by Accipiter indicate a high success (or failure) rate for a specific creative, we can react immediately rather than be constrained by an IT-driven build schedule.”

Web publishers, media networks, and e-commerce sites can get up and running quickly using AdManager Hosted, eliminating the need for onsite ad management hardware, administrative software, and databases. “We are seeing more and more e-commerce customers like ShareBuilder turn to us for an ad management solution that frees their capital and resources for other more appropriate uses central to their core competencies,” said Jeff Wood, vice president of sales and account management for Accipiter.

ShareBuilder is also looking to AdManager Hosted to provide the ability to dynamically serve targeted ads to customers based on user behavior or specific demographics. “We are always looking for ways to provide our users with relevant content based on their experience with ShareBuilder, said Potter. “AdManager can help get us there.”

AdManager is available on Windows NT and Solaris operating systems. The solution supports a variety of database platforms such as Oracle, SQL Server, and Sybase. For more product information, please visit http://www.accipiter.com/solutions/index.php.
