Ross Group Inc and CEDAR Document Technologies Form Partnership

Atlanta, GA - Ross Group Inc (RGI) and CEDAR Document Technologies today announced their partnership to provide a new, integrated suite of products and services to benefit the American Automobile Association (AAA) and Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) clubs across North America. Combining the features of Ross Group's Memberz Plus(TM) and CEDAR's Communications Platform, this partnership will enhance and extend participating AAA/CAA clubs' ability to service and retain their members, and more efficiently market to and enroll new members.

Ross Group's MemberzPlus(TM) Membership Relationship Management
( (MRM) application is becoming the industry standard for clubs and associations around the country, and is widely appreciated for its 360 degree view of customer interactions. CEDAR's Communications Platform provides an integrated service for creating, managing, tracking and reporting on a company's complete customer communications - from statements and bills, to notices and cross marketing messages. This partnership serves to unlock the data in a club's core systems and provides a single, easy to implement interface for customer communications - regardless of how they are initiated and how they are delivered (USPS, Email, website, FAX, SMS, and IVR).

"Our partnership represents a significant advancement in providing a single environment for selling, servicing, and cross marketing to AAA/CAA club prospects and members," said Mark Ross, CEO of Ross Group Inc.

Pete Kenning, CEO of CEDAR Document Technologies explained that "Ross Group's 360 degree view of the customer is put into action with CEDAR's content management and multi-channel communication delivery and fulfillment capabilities. Motor Clubs can rapidly apply customer knowledge, create and deliver marketing and other messaging to members and measure the results of different messaging approaches to expand their relationship with existing members and effectively market to new prospects."

The integration of RGI and CEDAR products and services will provide a strong set of integrated and easy to use features, including:

o Membership Management: RGI's MemberzPlus(TM) robust membership management system designed specifically for motor clubs.

o Membership Relationship Management: RGI's TouchPoints MRM system built to deepen the relationship between the member and the club.
