WebCE, DMR & Associates Create Click and Mortar Partnership for Continuing Education Courses to Insurance Industry

August 21, 2000

DALLAS--WebCE, the leading provider of Internet-based continuing education (CE) courses to the insurance industry, today announced a partnership with DMR & Associates, Inc., a Plano, Texas-based leader in providing lead and recruiting solutions to the insurance and banking industries.

The alliance will deliver WebCE's state-approved correspondence courses through DMR's classrooms nationwide. As part of the agreement, WebCE will also convert and deliver selected DMR classroom courses over the Internet.

The alliance with DMR will enable WebCE's independent insurance agent customers to expand their options for completing their continuing education requirements.

"We made this strategic commitment to DMR because its courses deliver high-value content for insurance agents," said Gary Henkel, CEO of WebCE. "Without question, DMR's courses give independent agents unique ways to improve their productivity. This relationship between WebCE and DMR will bring our joint customers increasing business benefits as we continue to optimize our courses and services."

Under the terms of the agreement, WebCE and DMR will jointly develop their respective CE niches within the insurance industry. Customers who purchase WebCE or DMR courses together will pay substantially less than if they purchased these products separately. In addition, WebCE has agreed to provide these customers with direct access to WebCE's customer service and support. This ensures that DMR's clients who buy WebCE courses will have the most knowledgeable support professionals assisting them first-hand.

"WebCE gives our insurance agent customers the power to take Web-based CE courses anytime and anywhere that is convenient to them," said DMR CEO Don Runge. "With WebCE, our customers can harness the full power of the Internet to establish and maintain their CE requirements, or they can continue to receive instruction through WebCE's traditional books. This is a big win for WebCE and DMR customers nationwide."
