First Tuesday in November Uses Vocalocity Internet Phone Solution to Support Real-Time Voter Tracking Offering

Unique Tool Allows Political Campaign Coordinators to Easily Reach Out to Potential Voters on Election Day

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - As political candidates aim to increase voter turnout during upcoming senatorial, congressional and gubernatorial elections, they are turning to First Tuesday in November (FTIN) -- a company that provides politicians and campaign officials with real-time voter tracking information that indicates which constituents have yet to vote. A critical part of FTIN's offering is enabled by Vocalocity's Internet phone service (hosted VoIP solution) which ultimately makes it possible for campaign staffers to call potential voters and encourage them to go to the polls.

"The more effectively you can reach out to potential voters on election day, the better the chance they will vote," said David Cerrone, principal, FTIN. "Our patent pending technology often results in a 20 to 30 point increase in voter turnout for a particular candidate."

In order to take advantage of this real-time voter tracking information provided on election day, an extremely reliable phone system is required to ensure timely phone conversations with constituents are possible. FTIN pairs its voter tracking software with Vocalocity's software-based Internet phone solution to allow campaign staffers to make a difference. Such an approach eliminates the need for expensive and unsophisticated traditional phone equipment allowing FTIN customers to make a high volume of calls over the Internet in a cost effective and efficient manner.

FTIN notes that Vocalocity delivers the best solution to meet its needs. "We require a service with a high-level of reliability -- one that was up 99.9 percent of the time and could adjust with us depending on fluctuating call volumes," Cerrone added. "But we also wanted more than just a product. Sales and technical support as well as price were important." Consumer-oriented Internet phone services such as Skype weren't designed to meet the needs or demands of FTIN's customers, Cerrone said. "Vocalocity is the right fit for us."

Vocalocity's Internet phone solution allows FTIN customers to call voters through a computer equipped with a headset.

"The ability for FTIN to quickly and easily integrate our Internet phone solution with its product regardless of the location of the campaign organization demonstrates the value and convenience of our offering," said Phil Hill, President, Vocalocity. "Ultimately this approach empowers campaign workers to effortlessly and rapidly make calls that are a difference maker in elections."
