Three Major Industry Vendors to Market Site Design, Online Catalogs, Site Management and E-Commerce Options

DALLAS, Jul 29, 1999 (BUSINESS WIRE via COMTEX) – Integrated Concepts, Inc. (ICI) of Dallas, Texas (WWW.INTEGRATEDCONCEPTS.COM) today announced new reseller agreements with CompuCom Systems, Candle Corporation and evesta.com. The three companies agreed, individually, to market ICI's "e-Comm" Pro Packs, a series of Web site development, management and hosting products. Both CompuCom and Candle Corporation will utilize ICI's Web hosting capabilities while evesta.com will host its customers' sites on its own data center. ICI is a Dallas-based systems integrator and software development company that was recently named "Total Solutions Partner of the Year" by Computer Associates (CA).

ICI's Pro Pack products are bundles of Web site design, hosting and management services, offered with multiple options regarding the size of the site, features and pricing. E-commerce, online catalogs, shopping carts, site-specific search engines, virtual reality and animation are among the numerous feature options available with ICI's Pro Packs. Candle Corporation and evesta.com will also market ICI's EC Packs which have additional features beyond the Pro Pack products.

CompuCom will add the ICI Pro Packs to their Ready! For the Web package, which is CompuCom's turnkey Web site/e-commerce product offering. "ICI's Pro Packs allow us to immediately provide professional Web development services to out clients," said Matt Wheeler, Director of CompuCom's Internetworking Practice. "This gives our clients the development resources they need to build their online operations quickly and easily."

For Candle Corporation, the new agreement is an expansion of an existing business partnership agreement between the two companies. Under the new terms, the two companies will co-market each others products. Candle Corporation is a leading worldwide software and services company with a line of business management applications solutions. According to Jose Cabrera, Senior Director Channel Marketing, at Candle Corporation, "Candle Corporation will bundle ICI's software with Candle's own E-Business Assurance (eBA) program. EBA provides complete e-Commerce site management services. With eBA, site managers can get a real-time overview of the site's activities, load levels and browsing and download times. Now, with ICI's products, we can deliver fully functional Web sites as well as the ability to monitor those sites."

Evesta.com will also resell ICI's Web site packages. It will integrate the design and hosting services with its core product which is a dynamically filtered Internet connection. Filtered Internet connections allow customers to screen and block objectionable materials from being presented or received. Evesta.com markets its products to small and medium sized businesses concerned about non-work related usage or inappropriate communications.
