AT&T Selects WhiteFence as Partner to Launch AT&T Mover's Advantage

HOUSTON, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T Inc. today announced that it is launching its AT&T Mover's Advantage program thanks, in part, to a business partnership with WhiteFence, the nation's leading one-stop comparison shopping marketplace for essential home and move-related services.

The AT&T Mover's Advantage provides a one-stop moving solution, allowing consumers to easily create their own AT&T bundles for voice services, high- speed internet, satellite TV, and Cingular wireless, as well as set up their other utilities and other home services, in one simple stop. The new service is available online (http://www.att.com/move ) and through call centers (1-800-MOVE-ATT).

WhiteFence, the nation's leader in multi-provider online service transactions, will utilize its highly advanced transaction engine and integration technologies to support both the online and offline aspects of the program. In addition, WhiteFence will leverage its vast network of service providers throughout the U.S. to provide additional services such as electricity, natural gas, newspapers, change of address, insurance, and personal finance. The launch of the new single-source solution also combines the best of separate moving initiatives created by both the former AT&T Corp. and SBC Communications Inc. into one, more robust and streamlined resource.

"WhiteFence is all about providing value to our consumers and business partners," said Arthur J. Maxwell, chief executive officer of WhiteFence. "We are happy to leverage our technology expertise, our experience with bundled services, and our nationwide service provider network to support a world class partner like AT&T."

"The AT&T Mover's Advantage saves consumers time and money by helping them secure the most reliable and cost-effective bundles of communications and entertainment services," said Mikal Harn, Vice President, AT&T Consumer Marketing. "Consumers can also secure other services such as energy services, newspaper delivery, insurance and banking -- all from the same site -- at any time of day or night."

WhiteFence has worked with AT&T for over five years through its comparison shopping marketplace, as well as supporting several AT&T technology and partner management initiatives.

WhiteFence will utilize its business partnership with IBT Solutions LLC, a division of Nicor Services, to handle inbound calls transfers for AT&T Mover's Advantage. IBT's call centers currently use WhiteFence's proprietary CAMS technology to provide Nicor Gas customers, among others, with one-stop essential home services in an integrated offline/online environment.
