Madge.web & Magnifi to Provide Content Management & Marketing Collaboration

Madge.web, a subsidiary of Madge Networks N.V. has entered into a strategic alliance with Magnifi. The alliance will provide businesses with premium service, rich content management solutions and project management tools to support the end-to-end marketing process — from strategic planning and creative development to program execution and assessment. Madge.web has also agreed to make an investment in Magnifi by the end of the fourth quarter. Magnifi’s workflow, brand and asset management extranet solutions are tailored to the marketing environment, enabling global marketing teams to collaborate online with each other, their agencies and partners around the world. In addition, companies can digitally store massive volumes of marketing material online, such as TV commercial footage or print advertising designs, for worldwide, client-secure retrieval. These services help companies to streamline brand management and marketing campaigns and reduce time to market. As part of the strategic alliance, Madge.web will integrate Magnifi’s solutions into its global, managed infrastructure, the “Overnet.” These content management solutions are designed to complement Madge.web’s other services for all stages of the rich content value chain (encompassing content creation, management and marketing). These other services, which are also integrated in Madge.web’s Overnet, include virtual private networking, managed hosting, encoding services, content distribution including streaming media, and Internet advertising solutions. Under the alliance, Madge.web is also Magnifi’s exclusive partner in Europe for sales and support, enabling Magnifi to expand their services to the region. First services resulting from the alliance are planned for availability by the first quarter of 2001. www.magnifi.com, www.madgeweb.com

O2 Essential Marketing Technologies to Acquire Content Management System

O2 Essential Marketing Technologies announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of a proprietary electronic Content Management System (eCMS) from affinity-based content provider ChannelSpace Entertainment. The electronic Content Management System (eCMS) works with virtually any knowledge source to automate manual processes such as Web production (with audio, video, image and text content from thousands of contributors), auditing, access control, site review, and accounting. O2 will hold eCMS as a subsidiary. This forthcoming acquisition occurs as part of a larger effort to position O2 as a top provider of technologies that enable content rich, interactive Web experiences. Building upon its core 3D shopping technology, which uses proprietary digital photography and programming to produce a fluid full-range rotational view of selected products, the addition of eCMS offers O2 the unique ability to offer complete end-to-end solutions spanning traditional content, broadcast, and commerce. This combination of strong technology and innovative marketing tools provides O2 with a strong base from which to grow their business. Internet users require more personalized content, yet the people associated with maintaining and adding that content can be prohibitive. The essential nature of the eCMS technology is as a cost-effective content management application that is targeted to small- to mid-sized companies that either do not have large IT staffs or cannot afford the large upfront license and monthly maintenance fees associated with competing products. Also announced today was the appointment of Jeff Laskowski to General Manager of the forthcoming eCMS division of O2. www.o2emt.com
