Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 8, 2005
Manufacturing and fulfillment leader SwiftCD (http://www.SwiftCD.com) today announces that Softwrap, a world leader in digital rights management, will be offering software developers and clients a new and unique logistics solution, powered by SwiftCD's on-demand manufacturing and fulfillment service. Thanks to SwiftCD, Softwrap vendors will have access to a quick, affordable and powerful cross-selling tool that will be available to customers in the ease of just a few mouse clicks.
With this new delivery solution, a purchaser will be able to order a backup copy of the software they purchase on a CD-ROM. Software companies can then include other trials or demos on the disk to be output as desired, with the freedom to change, update or expand menu items or choices at any time. Such physical delivery options give end users the satisfaction of a physical delivery for their purchases, while also giving them the opportunity to review, try out - and purchase - other software titles offered by the same provider.
Physical delivery powered by SwiftCD saves dramatically on hosting costs, and means that - as all the software is already on a disc - there's no need for the customer to go through the often tedious process of downloading the program. Best of all? The service is offered free of charge to Softwrap clients.
How it works:
1. The Software author contacts his or her existing business developer at Softwrap - or contacts firstname.lastname@example.org if they do not have an account
2. The Author/Publisher uploads the title or titles to Softwrap FTP
3. Softwrap uploads the CD to SwiftCD
4. When purchasing a trial version, the end user is offered the option of physical delivery of the title via CD-ROM. There is no charge for the CD - just a minimal fee for shipping and handling.
5. The end user receives the CD, installs the purchase, samples some of the other titles included on the CD - and comes back for another purchase.
"Softwrap is a leader in software wrapper technology and digital rights management, so we're certainly delighted to be able to support them with physical delivery," comments Jason Foodman, Chief Executive Officer of SwiftCD.com. "Thanks to our seamless manufacturing and fulfillment services, Softwrap can now offer the vital option of physical product delivery to their clients."
"The option of physical CD fulfillment for our software customers was a logical and natural next step," comments Dylan Solomon for Softwrap Limited. "In supporting us on this initiative, SwiftCD was able to provide us with a superb solution for our customers."
