Pearl River, NY (PRWEB) October 19, 2007
Easy CGI has announced a deal to make Oddcast.com's SitePal Talking Avatar available to its shared-hosting customers. Talking Avatar is a way to make Web sites friendlier, keep visitors on sites longer and convert more visits to sales.
SitePal Talking Avatars are customizable, talking characters that can be adapted from a library of characters or created from photographs. When added to Web sites, Talking Avatars are proven to help convert sales at higher rates than conventional online sales formats because they engage visitors with characters that interact with them. Talking Avatars can provide knowledgeable sales or customer support information, or direct visitors to other, specific areas on the Web site.
The Avatar's eyes follow on-screen mouse movements and the lips synchronize realistically with speech. Voices can be generated automatically, or users can have their scripts read by voice professionals in a variety of styles, accents and languages.
SitePal's Talking Avatar is just one of many tools that Easy CGI makes available to its customers to improve the functionality and performance of their Web sites.
"Our Advanced shared-hosting plans are designed to give our customers easy-to-use tools to build a successful online presence," says, Ted Beckwith, Vice President of Easy CGI. "SitePal's easy-to-use interface and easy integration with an existing Web site means our clients have one more, hassle-free way to drive more online traffic and sales."
Oddcast, which provides SitePal Avatar by subscription, is equally excited to be offering its product through Easy CGI.
"Yes, we're very excited to partner with Easy CGI," says Shawn Holt, Vice President, SitePal Business Development. "SitePal is the only web-based avatar platform in the world that focuses on driving business results, while Easy CGI has a great history of bringing their customers the most innovative and effective web tools on the market. Our collaboration is a definite win-win-win - for us, for Easy CGI and for their customers.
