The February 2013 release of the FastStats® marketing data
analysis and campaign automation software is now available to
Apteco’s partners and their clients. The software release notes
and webinar, which provide details of the new features and
functionality, can be downloaded by logging into the exclusive
member’s area of Apteco.com.
This release of FastStats Discoverer™ includes more powerful
suppression functionality for Cascade users and improvements to
the Modelling Environment for comparisons with existing data
models. As part of Apteco’s continual emphasis on high powered
and speedy performance of the FastStats® software suite, memory
handling has also been improved.
FastStats PeopleStage™ now offers improved performance through a
reduction in the size of diagrams. The increase in speed of
running reports and campaigns in this release helps to improve
the user experience further. There is more flexibility for users
applying exclusions to data selections and a number of interface
improvements have been made to make the software more intuitive.
FastStats® systems can be built more easily due to a number of
improvements to the FastStats® Designer software, which is used
by FastStats® administrators to design and build FastStats®
systems. Improvements in the way virtual variables can be
refreshed as a post load action, as well as better standard
extract processes and several improvements to the lookup table
properties dialog, all ensure that FastStats® systems continue to
be more efficiently managed and maintained.
Apteco produces four releases of FastStats® per year with full
documentation of improvements and corrections. These releases are
not compulsory as users can choose which to apply, but they are
cumulative, so all intermediate improvements and corrections are
applied automatically when updating. Apteco post notice of all
corrections on their online forum so users can make knowledgeable
decisions about the version of FastStats® to use.
