NewsGator Launches Innovative On-Demand RSS Solution
New SaaS Offering Delivers Benefits of Centrally Managed RSS systems Without the Expense or Burden of Managing or Deploying Hardware
DENVER, Jan. 22, 2007 — NewsGator Technologies, the leading RSS company, today announced the release of NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand, an enterprise RSS solution delivered via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. The service is targeted at small- to mid-sized businesses (SMB) as well as divisions or groups of larger organizations who want the ability to improve the way they find and distribute news and information without having to deploy or manage an on-premise solution.
NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand is the latest addition to NewsGator’s award-winning family of Enterprise RSS solutions. Featured in eWeek’s January 15th cover story, “RSS in the Enterprise,” the company’s server-based product, NewsGator Enterprise Server (NGES), has been deployed by more than 50 organizations worldwide, including more than a dozen Fortune 100 companies. NGES helps reduce information overload and improve internal communications and collaboration. NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand provides the same benefits, but eliminates the burden of deploying, hosting and maintaining an on-site solution. The innovative service is currently in use at 20 organizations ranging from software companies, to venture capitalists, publishers and professional services firms.
“For companies and groups that need the ability to streamline the management and distribution of news and information to employees, but don’t have the resources to handle the management of the technology, NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand is the perfect solution,” said Dave Keller, General Manager, Enterprise Solutions, for NewsGator Technologies. “As the leader in RSS, this offering is the latest example of how we are able to continually innovate while being responsive to market demands. Based on the overwhelming adoption of the service during the beta period, we expect NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand to significantly increase the overall market for Enterprise RSS Solutions and open new markets for NewsGator.”
Powerful Capabilities Improve Productivity for Administrators and Users Alike
NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand provides a powerful set of capabilities designed to make it easy as possible for organizations to improve internal communications and increase productivity of information workers including:
* Centralized Administration – Manage users, groups and subscriptions
* Discovery – Customize a taxonomy based on functions, products or practices
* Devices and Platforms – In addition to the Web, use any of NewsGator’s award-winning e-mail, desktop and mobile readers and keep articles synchronized

* Branding – Customize the look and feel to match corporate intranets

“Most of our employees use disparate RSS readers to stay on top of the news. NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand allows all of our workers to find and share relevant feeds, which ultimately makes collaboration easier,” said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. “Now, we can easily and efficiently share relevant information with each other, without a big learning curve. NewsGator Enterprise On-Demand will save us huge amounts of time company-wide while also improving the flow of information and knowledge.”
“Knowledge is the heart of everything our organization does and ensuring that our research staff receive the relevant information they need to do their jobs is critical to delivering quality products and services,” said Karen Huffman, manager of Knowledge Initiatives for the National Geographic Society. “Our library team has tested and used a handful of RSS readers to save time scanning across a wide set of sources. NewsGator On-Demand provides the opportunity to assist with selection and dissemination of relevant RSS-based information to our users.”
