The new version of NATS lets affiliate companies track sales based on country, the type of tour or the type of advertising tool used. The companies will be able to cross-reference this information to see how different tools work in different places.
Too Much Media Developer Fred Schank told XBIZ that his company spent more than a year developing the new version of NATS, which incorporates a host of suggestions.
"We always like to get input from our clients," Schank said. "They're our best resource, and we always try to get as many suggestions as possible and then implement those ideas so they work for all of our clients."
Along with the product launch, Too Much Media will be expanding its phone support. Clients will be able to call support from 10 a.m. to midnight EST. The company plans to eventually offer 24-hour phone support, although they haven't set a timeline for that.
Other new changes for NATS version four include:
• Initial NATS fees have been reduced from $1,500 to $750.
• The install cost has been reduced from $500 to $250.
• Support and training now cost $500, down from $1,000.

751 – 2000: $650 per month.
2001 – 5000: $850 per month.

Clients must adhere to the new pricing structure to receive the expanded phone support.
