WebSideStory Expands HitBox’s Reach Into France

WebSideStory Monday released a
French-language version of HitBox Enterprise service, a Web audience
measurement technology geared toward enterprise-class clients.

WebSideStory develops Internet-based Web audience analysis tools.

HitBox Enterprise enables customers to monitor, in real time, hundreds of
visitor traffic statistics for one or more Web sites.

The release of the French-language HitBox Enterprise is part of
WebSideStory’s expansion into the European market. Last month, the company
announced it would begin marketing
HitBox Enterprise in both France and Germany. Its French subsidiary,
WebSideStory SAS, recently moved into new offices in La Defense, a suburb of
Paris.

“We believe HitBox Enterprise en Francais is the most valuable Web
audience analysis solution available in France today,” said Blaise Barrelet,
chairman and founder of WebSideStory, in a statement released by the
WebSideStory.

Companies that have recently signed on for HitBox Enterprise trial
accounts include Aderly, an
economic development agency in the Lyon region of France; DNS, a regional
daily newspaper in the Rhone-Alpes area; and ABC NetMarketing, which provides
an Internet commercial and marketing online guide.

Previously announced HitBox Enterprise trials include iBazar Group, one of France’s largest
providers of free Web pages; NCTech, a
Web hosting and Internet consulting firm and a subsidiary of France Telecom;
FranceNet, an
Internet service provider; and World
Online
, a Web portal that offers free Internet access.

WebSideStory provides Internet technologies and services designed to
bridge the gap between Web sites and their audiences. WebSideStory products
are HitBox, a powerful Web audience analysis service; HitBox.com, a
Webmaster resource center and community of independent Web sites;
StatMarket.com, a source for data about global Internet user trends; and
Yep.com, a Web portal that ranks sites by popularity and quality.


Within
its network, WebSideStory analyzes and stores data from billions of Web page
views. This has created a warehouse of raw Internet user data that
WebSideStory converts into useable information.
