Coremetrics today announced that more of the Top 500 online retailers use Coremetrics than any other analytics provider. The Internet Retailer Top 500 is the industry’s definitive ranking of America’s largest e-retailers.
For the fourth consecutive year, Coremetrics tops the list of Web analytics providers, with online retail clients in every category. Further analysis of this year’s list reveals that 36% of the retailers with the largest growth in dollars are using Coremetrics.
Coremetrics is definitely one of the top 5 vendors everybody should look into.
When I tested their system it was clear that they focus on online retailers. Some features are really unique and of great value. I believe it is a very smart move to distinguish themselves and to stay out of Omniture’s and Websidestory’s battle zone.

Webstat.com LLC announced the release of Site Monitoring for its NextSTAT Web Analytics SaaS (Software as a Service).
The company has recognized that web performance monitoring is critical to ensuring the uptime and performance of high-transaction websites. NextSTAT continually tests web page availability and measures load times. Since this is accomplished outside of your firewall, it will provide you with your website performance from the end-user point-of-view.
Good call by Webstat! This is a great feature and highly important. Of course you can setup server monitoring with other software but this is a good start. This is a key feature for anybody who works with webanalytics.Now not only the technical team will get the info but also the lonely webanalytic guy, who usually gets in trouble when the numbers are wrong. A very important feature for the growing number of companies, which run their business in different time zones.
To improve this truely important service Webstat might even build an SMS alert system.
