WEBPARTNER'S NEW WEB-BASED MEETINGS REDUCE TRAVEL EXPENSES AND KEEP PEOPLE ON THE GROUND AND WORKING - POTENTIAL SAVINGS AND PRODUCTIVITY GAINS CAN BE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR
Cupertino, CA -- (PRnetwire) -- September 18, 2001 -- WebPartner(tm) (http://www.webpartner.com/), a Silicon Valley based provider of website test and performance software, announced today that it has added web-based meeting capability to its highly acclaimed Test and Performance Center(tm) software offering. To help cross-functional business teams supporting websites work together more effectively, WebPartner is providing customers with the ability to conduct meetings over the Web.
WebPartner customers can now reduce travel expenses, keep their people on the ground, and improve team productivity with WebPartner's web-based meeting software.
"As more business processes have moved to the Web, and the cross-functional teams supporting these websites has grown, the task of keeping everyone on the team on the same page has become more challenging and more important," said Mark Bailey, Chairman and CEO of WebPartner.
"At a cost of over $100,000 per person per year, the ongoing investment in these cross-functional website teams often ranges from $1 million to $10 million per year. Modest increases in the productivity of these teams can result in savings that are in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year for companies. With tighter budgets and a desire to reduce travel, companies are turning to web meetings to cut costs and increase team productivity. WebPartner now provides software that can be deployed quickly and cost effectively to run web-based team meetings, share website diagnostics, and coordinate efforts across cross-functional teams."
Team members can quickly convene meetings and share website diagnostic information, project plans, and task lists over the web. WebPartner's web-based meeting software also includes one click creation of a phone bridge for the web meeting. Remote team members can attend and participate in team meetings without the time and expense associated with conventional travel in planes, trains, and automobiles. WebPartner's Test and Performance Center(tm) makes the cross-functional teams that develop, test, and run websites more productive by improving the communication and coordination across Development, QA/Test, Network Operations, e-Business managers, and third party vendors.
WebPartner's Test and Performance Center(tm) provides 360 degree diagnostics in one web-based view that provides at-a-glance visual correlation and diagnostic drilldown capabilities: Stress Testing, URL diagnostics, Transaction diagnostics and Infrastructure diagnostics. Key benefits include:
Web-based meetings, powered by the WebEx network, can be scheduled quickly and easily making it easy to pull team members together for problem resolution and project reviews. With one click, the web meeting will automatically create a phone bridge for participants. Attendees need only a browser to attend and have access to website diagnostic data, project plans, and team documents during the meeting. Record and playback makes it easy for team members, who may have missed the meeting, to play back the meeting at a later time.
URL Diagnostics provides comprehensive and intelligent, web site monitoring to help e-businesses ensure that web pages are available and downloading quickly.
Transaction Diagnostics helps e-businesses to FIND, FIX and PREVENT(tm) Web site problems during customer transactions or multi-step web site processes.
Infrastructure Diagnostics provides diagnostic information on Internet, extranet, and intranet IT resources, and devices in real-time, such as NT/Unix servers and systems, network devices, Oracle/MS SQL databases, services, and software applications.
360-Degree Diagnostics combines all of this into a unique web-based tree view user interface with at-a-glance correlation and diagnostic drilldown capability to isolate problems and root causes.
Events are logged in an easy to read summary which gives cross-functional web teams a consolidated view of events related to website performance and web team activities.
Stress Testing allows QA/Test teams to simulate an increasing number of web visitors to ascertain the effects of an increasing load on the website and its associated infrastructure. WebPartner's 360 degree diagnostics provide insight into what problems are caused by this increasing load.
