<p><span class="xn-person">Scott Brown</span>, senior vice president and general manager, ColdSpark: "Achieving high open rates is much more important in the publishing and distribution of analytical information than it is in other email-based communications. ColdSpark offers a next-generation e-mail research distribution solution that gives customers the flexibility to distribute information to one or many, in response to a campaign, an event, or a transaction, and collect information that helps refine the relevance of the information sent and target it accurately."</p>
