The eStore Affiliates program represents an expansion of the eCommerce channel, which has provided a cost-effective and user-friendly way to try, buy, license and receive support for eFilm Workstation as well as future eCommerce products.


“Through our Cedara Software division, Merge Healthcare has worked with many partners over the years who currently sell eFilm Workstation, and we expect to continue growing these partnerships,” said Beth Frost-Johnson, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Merge Healthcare. “The new eStore Affiliates program gives smaller partners that have lower sales volumes the opportunity to become eFilm resellers. Affiliate partners can directly provide downloads, generate quotes and fulfill orders, and can provide automated electronic communications to prospects and customers for the applications offered through this eCommerce channel.”
