Leading UK services provider to bring Scene7’s five key rich media solutions to European market
Novato,CA - January 11, 2005 - Scene7®, provider of the leading rich media platform to grow revenues and enhance visual communications – while automating media production and delivery, today announced that Scene7 and UK services provider Intelligent Commerce Systems (ICS) have signed an agreement that allows ICS to add Scene7’s Infinite Imaging Platform to its technology-based product and service offerings.

Intelligent Commerce Systems offers distance selling and multi-channel systems to the UK market, and is a division of Intelligent Commerce Enterprises (ICE). With offices in the UK and US, ICE specializes in consulting, management, and provides technology systems and business services for the multi-channel retail and consumer manufacturing markets.
“The Scene7 platform has earned its spurs in the competitive US market and offers comprehensive site features for B2C and B2B e-commerce retailers,” said John Andrews, CEO of ICS. “Our research has shown that consumers who can use the ‘zoom’, 360 degree and personalization features offered by Scene7 are more likely to purchase online, and less likely to return their purchases afterwards. Scene7 is the clear market leader and we are very excited to be part of their team in Europe.”
Scene7’s Infinite Imaging™ Platform includes five key rich-media solutions for multi-channel selling – Dynamic Imaging (dynamic zoom, sizing, art, color swatching, spin, templates), eCatalogs, Dynamic Customization, eVideos and Dynamic Asset Management – all built on a single, integrated platform for automating the production and delivery of high-impact rich media. Scene7 rich media allows companies to add visually impactful, interactive online experiences such as dynamic personalization, shop from catalog, and mix and match. Scene7 dynamically generates and delivers unlimited derivatives from single master images, resulting in drastically reduced time and costs.
“We are pleased to partner with Intelligent Commerce Systems to help us extend our rich media platform to the European market,” said Doug Mack, CEO of Scene7. “ICS brings a wealth of experience in delivering innovative e-commerce solutions to European retailers and manufacturers, and we look forward to building a strong partnership that will enable us to deliver significant business benefits to our international customers.”
