Share Article

ECNext increases its strength in business intelligence by adding B2B publisher Owen Media to its mix.

We are excited about the potential this will bring to our ProFile Canada and Solunet databases.

Owen Media Partners, Inc. (http://www.owen-media.com) and ECNext (http://www.ecnext.com) announced the launch of the Owen Media e-commerce site (owen-media.ecnext.com) providing international company and manufacturing intelligence to business professionals.

The site is built on ECNext’s proprietary business content merchandising platform and uses ECNext’s expertise in web marketing to enable Owen Media to market and sell its information to the growing number of business professionals who are using the Web to find answers to critical business questions.

The Owen Media e-commerce site includes information on Canadian businesses and Mexican plant facilities via two unique databases. ProFile Canada is the deepest, most comprehensive marketing and research database of Canada’s leading 35,000 companies and organizations. Solunet: Info-Mex Twin Plant Guide provides deep data on Mexico’s maquiladora manufacturing sector, including over 3,500 facilities that enjoy a “free trading” status with the United States.

The e-commerce site opens up new revenue opportunities for Owen Media by offering these company profiles individually, in addition to the entire CD-ROM compilation. By expanding their licensing options and utilizing the web as a sales mechanism, the end user can get the business intelligence they specifically need quickly.

“Partnering with ECNext was important to Owen Media adding additional revenue streams to our business,” said Hugh Owen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Owen Media. “We are excited about the potential this will bring to our ProFile Canada and Solunet databases.”

ECNext specializes in helping publishers market, sell and deliver business information online via its content merchandising solution. ECNext’s family of solutions, its publisher branded sites, its own business intelligence portal, Manta, and its Web marketing programs, provides publishers with an additional channel for reaching online content buyers.

“The partnership between Owen Media and ECNext will be successful because of the mutual respect and readiness to bring to the table what each of us does best,” said Pamela Springer, CEO and President of ECNext. “That will be backed by our cutting-edge technology and marketing, which will bring Owen Media to the forefront of the users minds.“
