Editor's Note: Copper Services was acquired by Atlanta-based Premier Global (PGI) on August 1, 2013. The Convey technology was retained by a new company, Convey Services and continues to operate under the Convey brand.
"Convey enables firms to expand their online presence, extend their brand, and generate revenue without the expense and risk of developing proprietary in-house applications," said Carolyn Bradfield, CEO of Copper Services. "It's a highly customized solution that greatly reduces the time needed to go to market. Users can easily make changes and manage a Convey site independently without technical assistance."
Site owners add their own headers, logos, graphics and backgrounds to their Convey website. Videos, informational pages and banners can be added to increase interest, deliver a marketing message or create advertising opportunities.
Everything posted on a Convey-powered site can be offered for free or for purchase. The site seamlessly manages sales transactions without the need for a merchant account. The payment system integrated into Convey allows customized pricing, automated promotional discounts and refunds or cancellations.
Convey has a streamlined interface to manage features on the site such as posting an event calendar and highlighting upcoming events. Users can emphasize popular posts or call out key individuals or organizations as featured providers. Convey allows customization of user searches on the site, as well as generates links to social media, including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. An application can be added to attract other providers to the site or collect information on members.
Convey offers extensive administrative capabilities to manage site users, providers and partners, as well as revenue, commissions and payment. Convey has a well-developed API to connect to external applications including CRM or SFA systems.
