Effective interpretation of your customers' signals can make all the difference in the financial services arena. Now application service provider (ASP) Interelate has announced its first prebuilt product designed to provide detailed customer analysis through the use of existing data and proprietary analysis models. Using these tools, the product attempts to identify high-value customers and then provides cross-sell opportunities that they would find most appealing. With each tracked customer decision, the product refines its models to offer more accurate information for future transactions. Product pricing starts at $20,000 per month.

Align Your Minds
E-mail, voice mail and cell phones are powerful ways of connecting, but they don't always have all the connections you need. To fill the void, Parlano has recently released MindAlign, a set of server-based collaboration tools that let teams keep in touch, share important documents and track project progress from any networked computer. Users subscribe to relevant channels containing discussion areas, shared files, URLs and other pertinent information, or they can create their own channels. Administrators can also integrate MindAlign into existing applications (such as databases or lightweight directory access protocol directories) to provide one-stop access to important information. The product can run on internal corporate servers or as part of an ASP model hosted by Parlano. Pricing starts at $5,000 per internal server and $50 per Java client.

On the Web, finding what you need is more than half the battle, yet some sites still don't offer effective search capabilities. Seeking to provide an easy option for adding search to any site, Tippecanoe Systems has unveiled IndexMySite4Free.com, an online service that lets companies provide search features on their sites by simply adding a small piece of HTML code for a search button. The tool offers keyword, Boolean, soundex (similar sounding) searches, scheduled and on-demand re-indexing, customizable search results pages, usage reports, and more. The service is free for sites under 1,000 pages. Pricing for larger sites begins at $9.95 a month. For more information, visit www.indexmysite4free.com or call 925 485-1130.
