6. ReadyLive, a new
perspective on investor relations
ReadyLive allows you to capitalize
on the Web's strengths as global communications medium to educate
your investors about who your company really is, what is does,
and how it maximizes shareholder's value in an effort to help
them recognize that it represents a sound, long-term investment.
Ultimately, it will assist you in reducing investor turnover
through frequent communications.
The file size of a ReadyLive
client application is small. So small in fact (only 389k) that
it can easily be distributed via the Internet or standard diskettes.
Therefore, you can prepare diskettes for distribution at shareholders
meetings, make your ReadyLive application available for download
on your web site, or include diskettes with your annual reports
to encourage investors to install the application.
The pricing structure greatly
benefits public companies since licensees have the right to distribute
an unlimited number of ReadyLive applications via any electronic
distribution system (Internet, World Wide Web, newsgroups, and
bulletin boards). Hence, no matter how many investors your company
has or will have, you pay just one low licensing fee. Plus, since
ReadyLive content is always up-to-date, you can distribute the
same application fiscal year after fiscal year.
For companies wishing to include
diskettes with their upcoming annual reports, advancis.com also
offers the options to prepare diskettes ready for distribution.
