We will release results of the newsagent benchmark project to those who participated this coming Friday. Once we have released November results to participants we will more widely release an edited version of the results for others to see.

On Friday we will also call for submissions for a December 2007 project.

This benchmarking work is important as it drives deeper and more beneficial engagement with our software by newsagents using it. This engagement will lead to better business outcomes and drive a better return from the technology investment.

Our work on benchmarking for newsagents is clearly interesting – a competitor has announced what appears to be a copycat project.
