03.03.2003 - Alexandria, VA - Xert Communications, a leader in Interactive Communication software today announced that the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian has licensed Xert’s Precision suite, including Xert’s Contact Management 3.0 and Sales Force 3.0 applications. The Xert Precision suite will manage the Smithsonian’s stakeholder list management and permission-based email communications.

The integration of Xert’s Sales Force and Contact Manager applications with NMAI’s internal membership management and other enterprise systems will provide an automated, full-cycle system for communications with their members and other stakeholders.

One of the powerful elements of the Xert Precision suite software is its resident, secure architecture, enabling extremely fast and direct deployment across the enterprise, while tightly integrating with multiple back-office systems. Integration with internal membership applications and security systems and the Xert Suite's intuitive workflow-based structure were other key factors in NMAI's decision to deploy the Xert system.

"In an ultra-competitive market we have been able to win the trust and business of the biggest names in Washington and beyond.
