Hadco Lights Up Their Sales Incentives Program With Ecount Prepaid

Leading Outdoor Lighting Company Launches Innovative Program for Contractors

LITTLESTOWN, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 29, 2006 -- Hadco, the outdoor lighting leader, today announced the rollout of a new sales incentive program leveraging Ecount's Prepaid Solution. Because Hadco wanted to reach contractors, who purchase through wholesale distributors, they needed a program that would create visibility and provide a valuable reward for the individual operator as well as the large builders. The Ecount Prepaid Solution provides an immediate reward for qualifying contractors, delivered onto a Hadco-branded Visa® Prepaid Card.

"Over the years, I have experienced incentive programs that range from travel to catalogs to points. Many of our participants found these programs too complicated, too full of 'fluff' and in the end came away disappointed -- not the result we were looking for with an incentives program. And, from my perspective, I have better things to do than worry about program administration," stated Lew Waltz, Landscape Sales and Marketing Vice President for Hadco. "Ecount enables us to provide an immediate and valued reward in a straightforward program. Everyone understands cash and pay for performance, and Ecount allows us to deliver that more efficiently and effectively than any other program."

The Ecount Sales Incentive Solution provides companies with a fully-branded Prepaid Program, including card, website, collateral and more. Ecount Prepaid Cards are good everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted and can be continuously loaded with variable denominations.

Hadco chose Ecount because they had seen the program deliver great results for Hadco's partners. "Ecount delivers a program that works. It enables us to provide immediate payment coupled with valuable account communication and an easy-to-administer program. It is the best incentive program I have seen," continued Waltz.

"Companies choose Ecount's sales incentive solution because we provide a program that sales representatives love. They receive their reward faster and they can use it for whatever they want," stated Matt Gillin, CEO of Ecount. "Whether you are looking to pay someone $50 or $5,000, one time or daily, our platform enables you to do that in a cost-effective, branded way. Hadco is a terrific example of a company using Ecount to increase sales performance, client satisfaction and brand loyalty while reducing their operating expenditures."
