Digital River Signs Engenyous, NetObjects

Engenyous Corp. and Digital River signed an electronic software delivery (ESD) agreement to sell Engenyous' foreign language and encryption security products online.

Separately, Digital River entered an online distribution partnership with NetObjects Inc., developer of a family of Web site building software tools.

Through the partnership, NetObjects' site building software is available for electronic download or overnight delivery through the NetObjects Online Store via Digital River. Digital River also enhances the NetObjects electronic software distribution channel by offering access to its network of more than 500 online resellers.

Digital River is managing the sale of NetObjects Fusion and NetObjects Authoring Server Suite product lines in addition to NetObjects ScriptBuilder and BeanBuilder.

Under the agreement with Engenyous, Digital River will add Engenyous' products to its online database of software publishers and distribute the products through its online dealer network. Financial terms were not disclosed for either arrangement.

The new online store will be implemented in a number of different languages--beginning with English, Spanish and Portuguese, and expanding to include French, German and Italian in the future, the companies said.

"A large portion of our target audience speaks languages other than English," said Clyde Smyth, director of marketing for Engenyous. "Working with Digital River allows us to develop a store that provides our international customers with the ability to shop for our software in their own language."
