RESTON, Va.—Aug. 18, 2005—eStara, the leading global provider of click to call technology, (, announced that its new VoIP-based call tracking service, Track the Call(SM), has grown over 100% in the past three months, and 200% since January 1, 2005. The company’s ability to provide local numbers in over 3,500 U.S. cities, coupled with its pricing flexibility and real-time reporting has driven Track the Call’s rapid expansion.

Track the Call adoption is being fueled by faster-than-expected deployment in the online and offline publishing and search markets:

— Online directories

— Yellow pages

— Search engines

— Lead generation marketers

— Newspaper classifieds

Built on eStara’s VoIP (Voice over the Internet Protocol) platform, Track The Call is less expensive to deploy and more robust and reliable than traditional switch-based technologies. The service tracks inbound phone activity for specific local or toll-free numbers and provides real-time reporting and value-added services. eStara’s Track the Call service offers coast-to-coast local and toll-free coverage with the deepest local number inventory in the industry.

"With eStara Track The Call, SpaFinder has been able to demonstrate exceptional ROI for our directory and print advertisers," says Pete Ellis, Chairman and CEO of SpaFinder, the leading spa travel and marketing company. "eStara offered unrivaled national local number coverage, fast implementation and flexible pricing models that fit our business model. Its been a great service for us," he added.

eStara has worked with its partners to meet the needs of their advertisers. The results of this collaboration can be seen in Track the Call’s features like lost lead reports, which give advertisers a second chance to contact a lead that went unanswered and geo-targeting, which lets advertisers limit the use of call tracking numbers to prospects within a specific area.

"eStara starts by asking the question: how can we best leverage new call tracking services to bring value to your advertisers and revenue to your business," said Cid Jenkins, eStara’s director of business development. "Our job is to help you answer that question and then implement the best-of-breed technology to get you there," she added.
