Carlton, Victoria, Australia – March 9th, 1998 – Active Concepts today
announces the release of the first cross platform corporate level web
analysis, profiling and Internet tracking tool for the Macintosh, Windows
95/NT and Unix platforms.
Funnel Web Professional makes it simple for any business to profile web
site usage with the speed, accuracy and ease that Funnel Web is known for.
Designed for large sites Funnel Web Professional can handle high server
loads, up to 20 million hits per log and can provide realtime updates of
server traffic. Ideal for marketing departments targeting their advertising
dollars Funnel Web Professional allows you to identify the origin of each
client, last site visited and the keywords and search engines used to
locate your site on the Internet.
A major feature of Funnel Web Professional is the ability for any
corporation or small business to monitor staff web usage anywhere on the
Internet. Such sophisticated analysis was previously only available on
large, expensive Unix systems. In addition to the powerful web profiling
and analysis available in the standard edition of Funnel Web, this major
new release introduces client session tracking to identify the individual
paths taken by each client. Specifically designed with corporations and
Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in mind, the new virtual engine can
generate mutidomain reports in a single pass based on each host domain or
individual log file.
In addition, Funnel Web Professional provides a host of client/server
statistics to provide detailed analysis of any web site, consisting of over
20 separate reports and individual graphs to assist in data visualisation.

facilities to assist in automatic report creation and specific options for
custom filters and date ranges.
