     About InfoCast
     As a Vertical Service Provider, InfoCast has built a complete Contact
 Center solution around two core applications designed to work together as a
 single platform for customer care and employee/partner empowerment:
 
     -- InfoCast Contact -- The foundation of InfoCast's Contact solution is a
        complete web-based contact center infrastructure available on a pay-
        per-use basis, an attractive alternative to expensive, traditional call
        center hardware and software. The solution can be deployed independent
        of existing call center infrastructures, or in a co-exist format that
        increases the efficiency of current call centers while addressing
        evolving requirements for e-enablement. Additionally, InfoCast
        technology makes satellite call centers and work-at-home agents a
        viable reality.
 
     -- InfoCast e-Learning -- This comprehensive and client-customized
        electronic learning portal and extensive library of e-enabled
        courseware content increases productivity and drives down education
        costs by giving corporate and academic learners access to up-to-the-
        minute training and certification anytime, anywhere.
