Miami, FL (August 31, 2012) — SPI Software announced recently that Bluegreen Corporation will be using its Orange Software, Version 7, Sales and Marketing system. SPI provides timeshare/shared ownership resorts with software to handle marketing, sales, property management, finance, maintenance fee and receivables servicing, centralized reservations and Website access operations.
“Bluegreen Corporation has been using our software since January of 2008,” says VP of Client Services Gordon McClendon. “With our latest version, they will have the latest additions to SPI’s advanced document preparation module, as well as to our increasingly sophisticated web services package.”
“Over the years, we have enjoyed working with Bluegreen and have admired their team-oriented philosophy. For example, their IT people created programming so that marketing information entered into SPI’s system at any of their marketing locations could instantly be pulled to populate documentation for the sales department. It means less waiting time for the customers; a smoother and more professional process from the initial greeting through to closing and greater accuracy throughout.”
About Bluegreen Corporation
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE:BXG) is a sales, marketing and management company, primarily focused on the vacation ownership industry. Its business was historically conducted through two operating segments – a resorts business segment (“Bluegreen Resorts”) and a residential communities business segment (“Bluegreen Communities”). As a result of the sale of substantially all of the assets that comprised Bluegreen Communities on May 4, 2012, Bluegreen’s continuing operations only relate to Bluegreen Resorts. Bluegreen Resorts markets, sells and manages vacation ownership interests (“VOIs”) in resorts, which are generally located in popular, high-volume, “drive-to” vacation destinations, and were either developed or acquired by Bluegreen Resorts or developed by others. VOIs located in its resorts and those sold by Bluegreen on behalf of third parties typically entitle the buyer to use resort accommodations through an annual or biennial allotment of “points” which represent their ownership and beneficial use rights in perpetuity in the Bluegreen Vacation Club (supported by an underlying deeded VOI held in trust for the buyer). Owners in the Bluegreen Vacation Club may stay in any of the approximately 70 Bluegreen Vacation Club resorts or take advantage of an exchange program offered by a third-party world-wide vacation ownership exchange network of over 4,000 resorts and other vacation experiences such as cruises and hotel stays. Bluegreen Resorts also provides property and homeowners’ association management services, VOI title services, mortgage servicing and resort amenity operational services. Founded in 1966, Bluegreen is headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., and currently employs over 4,000 associates. More information about Bluegreen is available at www.bluegreencorp.com
