Encore Changes Name And WebSite

by Rainier on Oct. 9, 2002 @ 2:30 a.m. PDT

Encore today announced, its new domain name and newly designed web site, highlighting the company's new name Encore (replacing Encore Software) and a broadened focus on videogames for next-generation consoles. The site also offers easier access to Encore's wide range of highly recognizable, mass-market brands such as Sesame Street, Dragon Tales, Kaplan and National Geographic.

The new name and site coincides with Encore's recent purchase by Navarre Corporation (NASDAQ: NAVR). Encore now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Navarre, pursuing its mission to be a major player in the interactive marketplace. Encore retains its company name, executive team, and current 73,000 square foot location in Carson, California.

Shopping - Information - Links

The site has been completely redesigned so that it's quicker to navigate and easier to find specific products. Visitors to the site will find:

  • Details on all Encore videogames, PC games and educational software
  • Ability to pre-order upcoming releases
  • Free software offers
  • Continually updated specials and promotions
  • A support knowledge base with technical solutions to product issues
  • Company information and news releases
  • A sign-up option for Encore's monthly newsletter
  • Links to sites where fans can sign up for updates on their favorite games
  • A link to the official website for Dragon's Lair 3D™, a completely new, 3D version of the 1980's arcade classic

New Company E-Mail Addresses

In conjunction with the new domain name, Encore employees have new e-mail addresses with the extension. There will be a 12-month transition period during which Encore employees can also be reached at their current addresses.
