iCentera Delivers On-Demand Communication Portals to the European Market Signing 3 New Customers

icSuite Will Be Demonstrated at Orbit-iEX in Switzerland May 24 - 27

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. May 2, 2005 - iCentera, the leading provider of on-demand communication portals that change the way businesses communicate, announced today that it has entered the European market signing three new customers: Neurored in Madrid, Spain; PARX AG, Switzerland and NMI Security of the U.K. The icSuite's "Portals for Mortals™" delivers absolute content management, custom portal creation, and real-time content and portal analytics for all client communications including communications with customers, partners, and prospects. With iCentera the three new customers have delivered more than 100 customized, private portals to improve communications, increase productivity, and differentiate from the competition. iCentera will showcase the icSuite in the PARX AG booth (2.1/L42) at Orbit-iEX in Basel, Switzerland, May 24 - 27.

"In Europe, companies are looking for new technologies to communicate and collaborate more effectively with multiple audiences. If they can do this, they can increase productivity and in turn increase revenues," said Andreas Von Gunten, President and CEO of PARX AG. "iCentera fulfills our vision of the collaborative workplace. The ability to easily deliver, to each of our customers and partners, individual portals from a shared content repository, is the most important feature of the iCentera icSuite."

Neurored, a technology solutions consultancy group in Madrid, Spain, was experiencing increasing sales cycles and needed a way to communicate a large amount of proprietary information to customers and prospects. Extranet and intranet products on the market were expensive and took a long time to deploy. With the icSuite, Neurored can deliver customized portals containing the most up-to-date and relevant information for each audience. "It is sometimes hard to explain to our customers the power of on-demand solutions. When we work with prospects through iCentera they see on-demand and they get it immediately. And then they want it for themselves," said Ricardo Medem, President and CEO of Neurored.

iCentera changes the way businesses communicate by delivering on-demand communication portals. Simply put, the icSuite delivers "Portals for Mortals™" - easy to use, private websites that can be created and tailored for each audience within 5 minutes and without any IT involvement. European customers are leveraging the icSuite to improve communication by delivering:

  • Marketing and sales portals
  • Partner portals
  • Prospect portals
  • Marketing event portals
  • New product launch portals
  • Project portals
  • Strategic account & customer portals

"We are very excited about our move into the European collaborative market space. Europe is on the cusp of an on-demand revolution that will increase productivity and effectiveness," said Craig Nelson President and CEO of iCentera. "With on-demand solutions like the icSuite, companies can enable sales staff and partners to sell more effectively and deliver one-to-one marketing programs with virtually any audience."
