Nettec's Site Lab offers unique, Fixed Price website monitoring and
analysis tool and consultancy package.

10 September, 2001, London, UK - speed-trap, the world's leading web
metrics and analytics company, today launched its web metrics, usability
and analytics collaboration partnership with Nettec plc., a leading
European digital solutions provider. The partnership was announced at the
CSSA 'Web Effectiveness Seminar' at which speed-trap and Nettec were lead
speakers. Nettec also introduced Site Lab, a website monitoring and
analysis tool and consultancy package, developed with speed-trap.

A recent Forrester Research survey concluded that Usability and Performance
were some of the most important issues for repeated visits to a web site.
After "High Quality Content" (80%), "Ease of Use" at 66% was the second
most important issue cited.

Nettec's new Site Lab offering is a unique real time website monitoring and
analysis tool and consultancy package, which includes speed-trap's Prophet
product. It provides accurate information on the actual performance
delivered to browser based application users and web visitors in both
intranet and internet environments. It achieves its unprecedented accuracy
by using a unique, patent-pending technology that collects and records,
directly from the user's browser, events that occur while the user
interacts with the frames or pages that are being monitored. In this way,
each web page or application monitors its own use.

Site Lab is a fixed price product and consultancy package delivered on a
server to run at a user's premises. It offers a rapid way to understand how
usable and performant a web site is, identify problem areas and suggestions
for improvement. Customers receive a detailed report on site usage, site
performance and a systematic, heuristic analysis of site behaviour. Typical
installation to deliverables time scale is between 4 and 6 weeks.

"Site Lab is designed to help companies gain maximum value from their
existing websites, by a combination of quantitative and qualitative
analysis. Site Lab delivers focused recommendations for change based upon
empirical data and expert opinion," said Richard Pryor, Consulting
Director, Nettec plc.

Malcolm Duckett, VP Marketing at speed-trap said, "We are confident that
the combination of both companies' web monitoring, creative and analysis
skills and experience will be mutually beneficial. Nettec's blend of
digital technology, technical and creative skills allied to our world
beating technology will, we are sure, make Site Lab an attractive
proposition for many progressive online operators."
