Integration Agreement with Constant Contact



The Directors of Altitude (AIM: ALT), the provider of innovative technology solutions for small to medium sized businesses, are pleased to announce that on 30 September 2015 Customer Focus Software Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Altitude) signed an agreement with Constant Contact Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) to integrate the Group's Artworktool content creation and sharing solution into Constant Contact's unique all-in-one online marketing platform for SMEs.

When completed, the integration will provide the more than 650,000 customers of Constant Contact with free access to basic Artworktool functionality, enabling them to design graphics while creating their email marketing campaigns.  With a single click using any browser, the patented solution launches a correctly sized canvas to match the email template the user is working on, with features including image upload from social media, fonts, shapes, special effects and clipart.

With an initial term of 12 months, the agreement provides Artworktool access to users that create artwork, automatically registering them for a free Artworktool account and the ability to easily upgrade their access to pay for premium services such as image and vector file downloads on a per action basis.

Richard Sowerby, Executive Chairman of Altitude said "This is an exciting development which demonstrates that our patented Artworktool software is globally scalable.  Being integrated into the primary product offering of a global brand leader, serving SMEs around the world will drive substantial numbers of users to our Artworktool platform and provide them with the opportunity to upgrade to our premium value added services."

About Artworktool

Artworktool team have a long and rich history in the print, promotional products, sign, apparel and online gift industries, and we've always sought innovative ways to engage and delight customers. Artworktool started out simply enough, as a means of allowing people to design signs online, but in the hands of our entrepreneurial (and excitable!) team, quickly evolved.

We had a vision of an online design tool that would be simple enough for anyone to use without training, but sophisticated enough to create all kinds of marketing material. The key USPs would be that balance of ease of use with advanced editing tools, and the ability to output designs both as web and print ready artwork.

Most of all we wanted to offer affordable HTML5 technology that would allow companies to offer the optimum online design solution for business.
