Certain Software Simplifies Event Creation, Expands eCommerce Integration, and Raises the Stakes for Private Branding Capabilities With Certain Meetings 5.2

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -  Certain Software, Inc., the leading provider of event management solutions for the global meetings and events planning industry, announces today the release of Certain Meetings 5.2. This release provides greater ease-of-use, customization capabilities, and attendee payment options for events and meetings management. Among the new features are the Event Setup Wizard, for quick and simple implementation and use of the software, integration with CyberSource Corporation, and private branding features for third-party service providers.

The Event Setup Wizard helps busy meeting planners and event organizers publish new event websites and registration forms quickly through a guided, step-by-step process. It automates routine tasks, and allows professional and non-professional meetings planners alike to create conference registration and meetings registration web sites quickly, while still allowing the user to access the full power and flexibility of Certain Meetings. "I was impressed with the ease-of-use of the wizard," says Certain's customer Caren Moss from the Renewable Energy Alaska Project. "I can see how it would help create new events quickly, and I like that the meeting planner can always switch back to Classic Mode to get access to all of the features of the Certain Meetings application."

Responding to customer demand, Certain also completed an integration with CyberSource, a leading provider of electronic payment services. Through CyberSource, Certain is able to offer more options for eCommerce processing of event registration fees. "We are delighted that Certain's customers will now be able to access our payment capabilities," said Carolyn Brackett, CyberSource Vice President, Channels and Alliances. "Certain joins over 295,000 customers worldwide that rely on CyberSource for secure management of payment operations."

Certain also enhanced private branding capabilities for Professional Edition customers in this release. This capability offers Meeting Management Companies and Professional Conference Organizers the ability to customize the planner application interface to promote their brand. "We see this as a critical enhancement for third-party meeting management and registration companies," says Certain's Director of Product Management Brett Weigl. "As a leader in this segment of the market, we can now offer even more compelling options for services companies to standardize their businesses on Certain." Enhanced branding capabilities are available to customers of Certain Meetings Professional Edition upon request.
