A+ Rewards Program Donates Percent of Sales to Customer-Designated Schools
MARLBOUROUGH, Mass., Nov. 16, 2007 – Email security firm, Vanquish Labs, (www.vanquish.com) today announces a nationwide program to donate 20 percent of all new sales revenue to schools chosen by its customers.
Called "A+ Rewards," this new program is a means of helping schools keep up with the pace – and the cost – of technology and supplies for their students.
The program is the brainchild of Vanquish Co-Founder, Frank Urro, who for many years has been an activist, both personally and professionally, for technology education.
"There's a lot of talk about how tech savvy kids are these days," says Mr. Urro. "But the fact of the matter is the schools that teach these children often have a very tough time affording the equipment they need. At Vanquish, we want to contribute in whatever small way we can to help the schools, and the children, invest in technology for education."
In the Vanquish A+ Rewards program, every new customer is offered the opportunity to designate any public or nonprofit private educational institution of their choosing. Vanquish will send the school a check totaling 20 percent of the purchase price. A simple web-based form makes it easy for customers to select their schools and facilitate the payments to the schools by Vanquish.
The program applies to all Vanquish products, including the award-winning vqME personal anti-spam service, the vqNOW hosted anti-spam service for small businesses, and the vqSA enterprise class anti-spam appliance.
Retail price for a vqME personal account is $39.95. Pricing for business-class products begins at $20 per mailbox for a 5-user "starter" account, with progressive per-mailbox discounts for larger enterprises. The A+ Rewards program does not apply to the hardware portion of a vqSA purchase.
Based in Marlborough, Mass., Vanquish Labs develops, markets and supports advanced anti-spam solutions for both personal and business email security. Products range from vqME, the PC Magazine Editors Choice winner for personal anti-spam, the vqNOW hosted anti-spam service for small and medium-sized businesses, and the vqSA anti-spam network appliance for larger enterprises. In addition to pushing the envelope of conventional anti-spam technologies, Vanquish is pioneering the application of economics in the battle against junk mail, malware and identity theft. The company holds key patents on the "sender liability" approach to email. Visit www.vanquish.com for more information.
