"Under the terms of the agreement, Zelerate will promote Jabber's open-source technologies along with Jabber.com's commercial solutions and professional services for instant messaging to Zelerate customers as a solution for real-time customer relationship management (CRM) and other immediate communications needs. Jabber will offer its customers the e-commerce software and implementation services of Zelerate. While financial arrangements were not disclosed, both companies will embark on joint promotion, market development and customer referral activities immediately."

"The offerings of both Zelerate and Jabber are designed to work with major operating systems. Zelerate's WAP-enabled Zelerate AllCommerce application suite features the core set of extensible modules required by major Internet business models and includes end-user interfaces to provide marketing managers with the ability to easily customize online pricing, inventory and ordering information. To ensure that businesses can manage both online orders and product fulfillment, the company recently introduced Zelerate Warehouse Management, which provides fulfillment functions previously unavailable to online business operations."
