Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) today announced that Ebix (NASDAQ:
EBIX) has joined its AppConnect Partner Program to integrate the Ebix
SmartOffice Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution with Constant
Contact’s Email Marketing tool to help Ebix’s customers harness critical data
to drive successful email marketing campaigns. The integration now enables the
more than 100,000 SmartOffice CRM users to seamlessly sync their existing
contacts and filtered lists with Constant Contact’s Email Marketing tool.
SmartOffice CRM users who don’t have a Constant Contact account can also
create one directly through SmartOffice CRM.

“In the insurance industry, it is critical to stay top-of-mind with your
customers and to create a positive experience through marketing efforts,” said
Dan Delity, corporate senior vice president and global head of sales, Ebix.
“This partnership with Constant Contact addresses a clear pain point for our
users: being able to easily create and send targeted email marketing campaigns
based on information stored in our SmartOffice CRM tool. We’re confident this
integration will help drive real business results for our customers.”

Ebix’s SmartOffice CRM solution is considered the insurance industry standard
for agency management, practice management, and enterprise CRM. The offering
helps insurance professionals improve their marketing efforts, provide
valuable reporting capabilities that drive better business decisions, and
create a customer-centric environment that helps increase sales.

“We are always looking for ways to simplify our marketing efforts while not
inhibiting the success of our campaigns,” said Emily Green, marketing
assistant, Single Point Partners. “This new integration between Ebix and
Constant Contact streamlines the whole marketing process and keeps us
connected with our customers.”

“There’s a really nice synergy between Constant Contact and Ebix as we are
both focused on helping our customers create great relationships with their
customers,” said Chris Litster, senior vice president of sales and marketing,
Constant Contact. “We know that accurately targeting customers to provide the
most relevant information is critical to maintaining those great
relationships. The robust data housed in Ebix’s SmartOffice CRM tool coupled
with Constant Contact’s proven Email Marketing tool gives our joint customers
the tools they need to get the job done.”

Constant Contact’s MarketPlace is an online resource that connects small
organizations with tools and services to help make the most of Constant
Contact tools and marketing campaigns for growing their business. Making the
MarketPlace possible is Constant Contact’s new AppConnect Development
Platform, which makes it easy to integrate third-party applications, like
Ebix’s SmartOffice CRM, seamlessly into Constant Contact’s core offering.
