NetSteps Announces Party Plan for ENCORE™

Next-Generation Party-Plan Solution to Be Unveiled at the Direct Selling Association Annual Meeting

PLEASANT GROVE, UT--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - NetSteps, creator of world-class business applications for real-time direct sales company management, today announced a new party-plan application -- fully integrated with ENCORE™, its single-source technology platform for global direct sales companies. Party Plan for ENCORE evolved from NetSteps' seven-plus years of experience in delivering party-planning solutions. ENCORE provides direct sales companies with everything required to run their businesses, including personal and global website managers, distributor workstations, a global management portal, event management, social networking, and mobile access.

"Successful party plan companies tend to ramp quickly, some hitting $10M daily sales volumes in just a few years. Our proven platform is critical for these companies to scale the application resources they need to support high volume transactions," said Kevin Vitale, NetSteps' CEO. "ENCORE's Party Plan module and license options enable companies to align their technology investments to match their business growth."

Party Plan for ENCORE enables distributors to select potential hosts from an integrated contact manager and issue preformatted, personalized emails inviting them to have a party. The technology dynamically creates a browser-accessible "host portal" complete with tools that make it simple for hosts to manage the entire party process. Hosts can log into their party portal and, using the electronic invitation feature, invite attendees to the party. Auto-generated invitations include a personal message, the event date and time, an RSVP feature, and a map to the party. Invitees can RSVP to attend, or, if they can't be there in person, enjoy a "virtual party experience" and make purchases on the host's party website, which is accessible by PC, smartphone, or iPad.
