NEWZ Continues eTopics Success

BURLINGTON, Mass., Sep 11, 2000 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Leader in eContent Syndication Announces Money.net, thehealthchannel.com, hrVillage.com and MedPool as Examples of eContent Syndication Building Traffic, Retention and Facilitating eCommerce

NewsEdge Corporation (NASDAQ: NEWZ chart, msgs), a leading syndicator of eContent and global news services, today announced several new eTopics customers as examples of the value of content syndication. Joining a growing and diverse list of companies, Money.net, thehealthchannel.com, hrVillage.com and MedPool are using NewsEdge's eTopics to attract specialized audiences, foster high frequency site visits, improve site habituation and cultivate eCommerce.

"News is a key component of Money.net's financial portal," said H.L. Van Arnem, CEO of Money.net. "NewsEdge provides us with up-to-date news stories we've incorporated into our affiliate program. Content delivery is integral to our customers and NewsEdge makes it easy to provide that."

"Businesses are recognizing the need for content to help increase site visits, raise retention and stickiness while ultimately providing visitors and customers with an all-inclusive service," said Cliff Pollan, NewsEdge's CEO. "eTopics create Web site action such as return visitors to eCommunities, more eCommerce transactions and customer interaction on corporate sites."

"Thehealthchannel.com caters to consumers and to medical professionals. It is important that we be able to provide timely medical news and regulatory information. NewsEdge's eTopics categories are narrow enough to appeal to almost any niche market within the health services environment," said Mark Ressa, vice president of corporate development and CTO of thehealthchannel.com. "Since incorporating NewsEdge content into our site, traffic has tripled and visitor retention rates and the number of page views per visitor doubled."

"hrVillage.com provides an online source of HR goods and services, supported by information and tools to help businesses identify and select HR solutions appropriate for their needs," said John Bremen, president and CEO of hrVillage.com. "NewsEdge's eTopics is a useful tool to provide our users with superior HR news to make them more informed professionals, while also helping increase traffic and user retention."

"The main reason MedPool chose NewsEdge was for its categorization," said Roberto Irrabarren, vice president of technology for MedPool. "By choosing NewsEdge, we didn't have to employ an editorial staff to sift through news daily, rather we just rely on NewsEdge's expertise to separate the top headlines of the day which we use on our home page."

In conjunction with these new customer wins NewsEdge also announced a new product, ReachOut Mail. (Editor's Note:Please see appropriate press release on Business Wire.)

NewsEdge's eTopics delivers customized, industry specific eContent to corporate Websites, extranets, eCommunities and eCommerce exchanges.
