Virtual Candidates Are the New Face of Campaign Websites

WASHINGTON, D.C. - August 27, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Two technology companies have partnered to offer a first of its kind technology to political candidates. Campaign technology company ElectionMall Technologies, Inc. and Oddcast, a company that develops and distributes conversational character software products, have allied to bring virtual technology to campaign websites.

The partnership will combine ElectionMall Technologies' award winning web tools and Oddcast's VHost™ technologies. The new product CampaignPal™ will enable candidates to cost- effectively place their talking likeness or other characters directly on their websites. The animated hosts will greet website visitors and provide real-time campaign updates.

Through their partnership with Oddcast, ElectionMall Technologies will be offering a CampaignPal™ website that will link directly from a candidate's website. Along with the virtual candidate, the site will enable the candidate to include links for visitors to contribute, view breaking news and more. ElectionMall Technologies' products and services are currently being used by both major parties in hundreds of campaigns throughout the United States.

The Oddcast VHost™ technology allows candidates to choose from a variety of pre-existing animated characters or have one created in their own likeness for an extra fee. Everything from clothing and hair color can be customized and messages can be easily updated by telephone. Oddcast's VHost™ technology is already being used on the corporate websites of many top international companies by helping to drive higher marketing ROI and click through rates.

"Through our strategic partnership we have introduced the best of business technology to campaigns and elections," said Ravi Singh, CEO of ElectionMall Technologies. "We have realized that candidates are too busy to take advantage of these technologies, so we stepped in. Now candidates, down to the most local level, can use the same technology utilized by some of the nation's top companies."

"Our conversational character products have outstanding success in increasing sales, click- through and conversion rates for our commercial clients," explained Oddcast CEO Adi Sideman. "I am certain VHost products will help candidates increase online contributions, awareness and web traffic."

ElectionMall Technologies is also a member of the European Association of Political Consultants (EAPC) and the International Association of Political Consultants (IAPC).
