24 November, 2008 - Lixto Software ( today announced that it has been identified by IDC as an innovative provider in the market for Web Intelligence, providing companies with online information on competitive pricing information from the internet. In its report “Lixto: Web Intelligence provides On-Demand Competitor Information” by Alys Woodward, IDC states that: “Organizations are increasingly under pressure to provide users with information for decision-making. Companies use Lixto for web process information and for online market intelligence, which is the extraction of detailed competitor information from public websites (in markets such as consumer electronics and travel).”

Alys Woodward, Program Manager, Business Intelligence and Analytics, at IDC said: “Lixto's software will provide value to customers in many markets beyond those they currently play in. These could involve different data sources such as social networking sites, energy supplier sites and financial product websites.”

Commenting on the report, Marcus Herzog, VP Product Management and Marketing, Lixto, said; “We are very pleased that IDC has seen the value of our solutions for companies looking to increase their competitiveness online. As businesses put more of their operations on the internet there is the opportunity to sell more goods and services to a wider audience, but at the same time the threat of price comparison and closer scrutiny also exists. Our solutions help ensure that companies are well placed to benefit from doing business online, gain an advantage over the competition and increase margins by providing the goods and services their customers are looking for at the right price.”
