Owen Media and ECNext Partner for Online Content Channel

Dec 22, 2005

Owen Media Partners, Inc. and ECNext have announced the launch of the Owen Media ecommerce site providing international company and manufacturing intelligence to business professionals. The site is built on ECNext's business content merchandising platform and uses ECNext's expertise in Web marketing to enable Owen Media to market and sell its information to business professionals who are using the Web to find answers to business questions.

The Owen Media ecommerce site includes information on Canadian businesses and Mexican plant facilities via two databases. ProFile Canada is a marketing and research database of Canada's 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 ecommerce site opens up new revenue opportunities for Owen Media by offering these company profiles individually, in addition to the entire CD-ROM compilation.

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.
