The firm said those templates include things such as photos, videos, quizzes, contest, promotions, and registration forms. Spredfast said customers using its product include AARP, Nokia, Bayer, HomeAway, Porter Novelli, ING Direct and AGAIN Interactive. The firm is venture backed by Interwest Partners and Austin Ventures. Spredfast's CEO is Rob Favaron, the former CEO of Lombari Software.
