<p>FAIRFIELD, N.J. – December 5, 2003 – StayinFront, a leading global provider of enterprise-wide customer relationship management (CRM) applications, decision support tools and eBusiness systems, today announced that existing client Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. has upgraded its sales force CRM system from StayinFront’s Pocket Elk platform for Windows CE to StayinFront’s Visual Elk platform for Windows XP. The upgrade enables Endo to rapidly move its sales force to Fujitsu laptops, which support electronic signature capabilities.</p>
<p>Headquartered in Chadds Ford, Pa., Endo Pharmaceuticals is a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company with market leadership in pain management. The Company had initially selected StayinFront’s Pocket Elk platform for Windows CE for field users. Endo had also previously implemented the StayinFront Visual Elk CRM solution for managers and home office users along with StayinFront Panorama, a powerful data analysis and decision support tool and StayinFront’s outsourced services, providing one single point of accountability for its customer relationship management system.
In discussing its selection of StayinFront, Eric Bloom, vice president of information technology at Endo, shared, “One of the reasons we initially selected StayinFront as our CRM vendor was their ability to provide a migration path as our hardware requirements changed. Migrating to laptops with the Windows XP operating system was a natural progression for us. The Windows CE environment was a good starting point. We’re growing as a company and the added features of StayinFront Visual Elk, along with the full e-mail capabilities of the system, allow us to improve the product we are delivering to sales representatives. We considered many different scenarios and our solid partnership with StayinFront made it easy to determine the best option for us at this time.”
Thomas R. Buckley, chief executive officer of StayinFront said, “With technology and hardware changing as fast as it does, it’s important to be able to quickly and cost effectively upgrade and enhance existing systems in the field. StayinFront’s unique technology allows rapid configuration to take advantage of these changes. This allows StayinFront to deliver additional functionality to the field forces we support and allows our partners to maximize the value and return of their CRM investment”.</p>
