etouches® and Onstream Media Announce Integrated
Online and Live Event Management System
POMPANO BEACH, FL – March 18, 2010 - Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), an online service provider of live and on-demand internet video, today announced that its Infinite Conferencing division and etouches Software, a web-based event management software company, have entered into an agreement whereby the two companies will integrate each other's solutions to offer organizations and enterprises what they believe to be the event industry's first complete, fully integrated event planning and management webinar platform for both in-person and online events.
The strategic partnership further enhances Infinite Conferencing's white-glove, full service webinar platform by integrating advanced functionality from etouches' event management software suite. This combined event planning offering extends Infinite's ability to meet the complex requirements often associated with planning and marketing a comprehensive online event.
"We have seen a growing demand from our clients for a full featured service combining event planning, event management, webinar and "high touch" personalized service in an affordable yet comprehensive online solution," said Ari Kestin, President of Infinite Conferencing. "One aspect of etouches' event management software that is incredibly valuable is how their tools are designed to optimize the in-person experience, while our platform does the same for the online environment, enabling an organization to effectively manage both simultaneously. This is an extremely powerful value proposition, especially when you consider the recent surge in virtual event activity."
For etouches Software, this relationship expands its event management software solution with Infinite Conferencing's phone and web-based communications services. In addition, Onstream Media's webcasting platform will be combined and integrated with the etouches event management product, bringing the added capabilities of online live and on-demand webinar services to etouches' customers as well.
"The integration of both the Infinite Conferencing audio and web conferencing and Onstream Media webcasting platforms into our solution is further evidence of our commitment to facilitating a robust information management program for our customers," said Leonora Valvo, etouches Software's CEO. "To empower a customer with this type of capability and functionality would require another vendor to spend significant time and resources developing a custom application at substantial cost. With our approach, the need for expensive customization goes away."
The integrated event management solution will be comprised of key components in the areas of self service, payment processing, event marketing (email, surveys, social networking and landing pages), event planning/management and CRM integration.
