The Coremetrics Continuous Optimization Platform is a unique system that addresses the need to more successfully convert and retain customers online. At the heart of the platform is Coremetrics’ exclusive Lifetime Individual Visitor Experience (LIVE) Profile™, which tracks a customer’s browsing behavior over the long term, including offline information, not just the first or last click. The historical data can be used across all Coremetrics products and consequently, across all marketing campaigns to relentlessly optimize results. This data also positions businesses to serve customers highly-tailored experiences based on their individual history—on a web site, via email and across multiple ad networks. The Continuous Optimization Platform makes any online marketing program far simpler to execute and easier to understand by defining an intuitive, three-step methodology to any marketing cycle. Those three steps are Anticipate, Automate and Syndicate. All Coremetrics applications are designed to support this methodology and complement each step.
To assess the state of the Web analytics market, Forrester evaluated the offering and strategy of top Web analytics vendors across 105 criteria. Each of these vendors has a significant base of enterprise-class clients. Coremetrics was one of the leaders among the top eight vendors identified in the report, which was published on July 23, 2009.
