e-point 5 - the new e-CRM solution from Point Information Systems -
has won a coveted industry award for its functionality, technology and
usability, repeating a similar success last year.

e-point 5 has been named one of the Top 15 CRM software packages for
2001 by ISM Inc., a leading US-based CRM consulting firm. Last year
Point's TeamPOINT product earned the same accolade. The Top 15
selections are detailed in ISM's ninth edition of The Guide to CRM
Automation (

Point's product was chosen this year from dozens of CRM software
packages tested at ISM's Bethesda, Maryland headquarters. Each was
rated according to 145 selection criteria including 91 business
functions, 36 technical features and 18 user friendliness/support

Barton Goldenberg, president of ISM and co-founder and co-chairman of
DCI's CRM Conference and Expo, announced the winners during a keynote
session at the Chicago CRM conference: "e-point 5 was selected as a
Top 15 CRM software leader in the face of tough competition and after
intensive testing and review," he said. "This is an outstanding
achievement for Point, particularly as it is the second time ISM has
awarded the company a Top 15 distinction."

Point's CEO Dieter Schneider was at the event to receive the award:
"To win this honour twice in a row is clear and independent
confirmation of what we've been saying all along - that CRM is not
just a technology, rather it's an entire philosophy that links
companies, their customers and their partners into a seamless
interaction environment. We are honoured to be recognised by ISM once
