Hydro Tasmania Consulting Saves with AVIcode

Hydro Tasmania Consulting, an Australian renewable energy business consultancy, purchased and implemented AVIcode¹s Intercept Studio from AVIcode’s partner Express Software Asia Pacific Pty. Ltd.

“When we implemented Intercept Studio six months ago, its performance profiling and exception monitoring worked right out of the box,” said Nick Jatan, project stream leader at Hydro Tasmania Consulting. “As we have taken advantage of Intercept Studio’s easy configuration and customization features, our results have improved even further. Very little training was required to get an overview of application health, and using Intercept Studio has greatly improved the efficiency of the Ajenti system and its supporting services.”

Wee Welcome Taps Endeca for Site Redesign

WeeWelcome.ca, a Canadian based social networking site geared toward new parents in their first year, reported a dramatic increase in natural search ranking and Web site membership.

This increase was a result of the implementation of Endeca’s search, Guided Navigation, Content Spotlighting and SEM capabilities in 2008. Since the capabilities were added, the number of unique visitors arriving from Web search engines like Google and Yahoo! increased by 500 percent and registered membership has doubled.
“When changing site formats, we really had to address a bevy of needs. If we were indeed going to create a user-generated site, where you can’t possible predict the content in advance, then how do you manage, organize and display the content? How do parents browse this abundance of ever-changing information?” says Maureen Dennis, president of Wee Welcome. “Endeca’s Guided Navigation and Content Spotlighting capabilities provided the means to dynamically organize this ever-changing content and cross-promote related content without ever having to manually link or categorize this information.”
