Market Leaders Embrace NewsGator Enterprise Server to Handle Next-Generation Content Delivery


DENVER, CO -- Oct. 03, 2006 -- NewsGator Technologies, Inc., the leading RSS platform company, has seen rapid adoption for NewsGator Enterprise Server (NGES), its market-leading RSS management solution, and is announcing several new customers today. Ten Fortune 500 companies and leaders across a wide range of industries and markets have turned to NGES to help increase productivity and improve their communications and collaborations processes. Recent NGES customer additions include: Gibbons, Del Deo, Dolan, Griffinger, Vecchione, P.C.; Polyform US; Return Path; SI Group; and Vyllo.

NGES provides organizations a way to deliver important content via RSS feeds from premium information providers, blogs, news sites and internal business systems directly to employees via portals, intranets, e-mail clients and mobile devices. Administrators can sign up users or groups for feeds automatically, so stakeholders don’t have to be familiar with RSS technology to get the content they need. The solution ensures that only relevant content is delivered and allows marketers, salespersons, researchers, engineers, executives and others to increase productivity, access additional content sources and avoid information overload.

“Organizations across a variety of industries are realizing the tangible benefits of managing the distribution of content with an enterprise-class RSS platform,” said J.B. Holston, president and CEO of NewsGator. “Web 2.0 technologies, including RSS, are being adopted to improve information dissemination and collaboration within organizations. Our customers have quickly realized that NGES’ centralized management approach helps them significantly increase the value of their information.”

“Communication channels within most organizations have become saturated with superfluous information, making it difficult for employees to identify and act upon changes in content that impact their work activities,” said Mike Gotta, principal analyst at Burton Group about his recent report, “Transforming Communication Channels: RSS in the Enterprise.” “What makes RSS valuable is that it enables enterprises to define communication channels for content delivery that are more purposeful, while enabling users to consume that information in a way that best fits their own work and lifestyle needs -- which might be through some combination of tools such as e-mail, a web browser, a mobile device or a dedicated RSS feed reader.”

Market Leaders Embrace Enterprise RSS

Polyform US, the leading manufacturer of buoys, fenders and other marine accessories, uses RSS in conjunction with Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server to collaborate with customers, partners and employees. “We’ve been watching as various next-generation Web technologies have matured, and it became clear that RSS was a tool we needed and would deliver significant business value in a short time span,” said Art Kuntz, IT manager at Polyform US. “NewsGator’s RSS platform is essential for our employees to keep updated about what’s going on in the Marine marketplace and gain quick access to research and new product information.”

One of the country’s largest law firms, Gibbons, Del Deo, Dolan, Griffinger, Vecchione, P.C., uses NGES to provide its attorneys easier access to important client and industry news. “The issue was that attorneys wanted to receive all relevant news and information delivered to their desktop without being inundated with too much content,” said Patrick DiDomenico, chief knowledge officer at the firm. “NewsGator has quickly become an integral part of the Gibbons Knowledge Management Center, where attorneys can check off which types of news they want to receive, all within a centralized management system.”

A leading e-mail performance management company, Return Path, will use NGES to help its executives keep track of key performance indicators and enable its entire staff to stay up-to-date on their company, industry and competitors. “RSS gives companies one more way to distribute and manage content, and it should be used in addition to other e-mail and online programs,” said Return Path Chief Operating Officer Jack Sinclair. “If we wanted employees to get access to RSS feeds, we could either sit down with every individual and teach them how to use an RSS reader, or use a centrally-managed system like NGES that eliminates the learning curve. That was not a hard choice to make.”
