Evoke Changes Name to Raindance Communications

Evoke has announced that it changed its name to Raindance Communications, Inc. The new name and logo will be introduced through July, as both Raindance and Evoke will be used on the company's Web site (www.raindance.com) or ( www.evoke.com).

The name change comes as a result of a settlement agreement reached in January between Evoke Software of San Francisco over the use of the trademark "Evoke." Earlier that month, Evoke decided to focus more on webconferencing and collaboration and sold its webcasting business to Digital Island for an undisclosed amount.

"We embarked on an extensive search to come up with a name that would speak to the company's mission," said Paul Berberian, president and chief executive officer. "Raindance is an inviting symbol of how we harness the collective energy of a group of people. We allow workgroups to spontaneously come together over the phone and Web to share ideas and make things happen."

The company will subsequently change its ticker symbol from EVOK to RNDC, which will become effective when the market opens on Thursday May 17.
