Urchin 6: Now In OPEN Beta!
February 1, 2008
Happy days! The Urchin 6 beta is now open to everybody who wants to participate!
Starting back on October 16th, we shared the news that Urchin 6 was available in a pretty limited release. If you wanted a beta version of Urchin 6, you had to apply for it and hope you made it in time. Now all you have to do is click the "download" button.
Happily the Urchin 6 beta is still a 90-day trial, so you'll have plenty of time to give it a test-drive. The interface is now similar to Google Analytics, and there is a greater focus on the usability aspect.
Urchin 6 even includes such beloved Google Analytics-like features as funnel analysis, site overlay, and geo-targeting! The navigation of Urchin 6 has also been re-engineered to be easier for somebody who is looking to optimize their marketing.
Urchin 6 will be $2,995, and this price includes the full functionality of the software. That means you no longer need to worry about the headache of purchasing all those different modules. With Urchin 6, you can run e-commerce and campaign tracking functionality on a bunch of servers with no extra cost!
For owners of standard Urchin 5 licenses, Urchin Software is available for a discounted price. The amount paid for the Urchin 5 installation will be applied towards the cost of Urchin 6 Software. For example, if you purchased the base module of Urchin 5 for $895, then Urchin 6 Software would cost $2,100 ($2995 - $895).
Urchin has recently made both the Campaign Tracking Module and the Profit Suite $2,995, so if you are purchasing Urchin 5 now with an eye to upgrade to Urchin 6 once the full version is out you'll be all set, and can seamlessly transition to the new version.
The date the full version of Urchin 6 will be released hasn't been announced yet, but if you want to be one of the very first to know, then you can sign up for our Urchin Update List.
