Centra and IVCi Partner to Provide a Premier Web Conferencing Solution Through IntelliNet MCS®

Thursday December 11, 7:30 am ET

LEXINGTON, MA and HAUPPAUGE, NY - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Dec. 11, 2003 - Centra Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTRA - News), a leading provider of application software and services for real-time enterprise conferencing and collaboration, and IVCi, Inc., a leading integrator of managed conferencing solutions, including video conferencing, audio/visual integration, streaming, Web conferencing, IP network services and outsourced staffing, have announced a partnership where IVCi will augment their recently launched IntelliNet MCS® capabilities with Web conferencing solutions from Centra. Under the terms of the agreement, IVCi will resell Centra products to its customers by offering Centra's real-time collaboration capabilities as a managed ASP service, a managed Hosted service or as a managed Premise service. This new offering expands the value of the IntelliNet managed hosting video service by providing a robust, secure Web conferencing solution that includes voice over IP and application sharing capabilities.

Commenting on this agreement, Paul R. Gudonis, president and CEO of Centra said, "This represents an exciting new direction for Centra as we continue to be committed to meeting and exceeding customer expectations in quality, value, and innovation. This partnership assures delivery of world-class services that combine the best in video and Web conferencing capabilities. As an integral part of IntelliNet MCS®, our applications provide real, scalable benefits to IVCi's customers, many of which will benefit from the complimentary value that this partnership delivers to their existing video conferencing environment. IVCi was an obvious choice as Centra's first national partner in the video industry, and we look forward to a successful relationship."

Centra offers application software that enables organizations to shift their group-oriented work to the Web for activities such as real-time communication, collaboration, and learning across the extended enterprise. Centra 7 seamlessly merges multi-vendor enabling technology, including instant messaging, calendar/schedule, Web conferencing, recording/playback, and tracking/reporting into a single enterprise application software solution that is easy to use and economical to own and operate.

"Partnering with Centra and integrating their premier Web conferencing applications into IntelliNet MCS® provides IVCi with the ability to enhance a company's existing communication environment, while reducing costs and increasing productivity," explains Adam Zeitsiff, CEO of IVCi. "Centra's focus on business workflow, process and technology deliver a unique value proposition. Unlike traditional Web conferencing solutions that can be used only as a tool during a meeting, Centra's solutions provide process automation before, during and after the event, resulting in enhanced meeting efficiency. Too often we see companies being forced to use conferencing tools ill-suited for their specific application. With IntelliNet MCS®, IVCi is now able to ensure a company can achieve the best return on their investment by utilizing the right conferencing tool for their application."

IVCi will be providing Centra's entire suite of enterprise collaboration and Web conferencing solutions to its customers across the country. All of these products are available immediately through IVCi and an in-depth demonstration can be arranged by contacting IVCi via email, info@ivci.com.
