Los Gatos, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2005
Persony ("per-so-nee"), a Web conferencing software provider, today announced a partnership with ShareMethods, a sales and marketing document management and collaboration service provider. Persony provides Persony VShowÂ, the first Web conferencing solution that uses standard Web servers to host online meetings, dramatically reducing the cost of Web conferencing. ShareMethods has joined the Persony Partner Program which will allow the company to make Persony VShow available to all of its prospects and customers as an additional subscription service.
This partnership enables ShareMethods to add real-time collaboration to its On-Demand Sales and Marketing Document Management Service. ShareMethods is currently used by customers such as JMJ Associates, HID Corporation, and salesforce.com to manage their sales and marketing documents internally and with external business partners. Persony VShow only requires a Web browser for end-users making integration with ShareMethods seamless and enabling an immediate connection to Web conferencing services.
"We are thrilled to have ShareMethods as a charter member of our Partner Program and to extend the power of their document management service with Persony VShow," says Eric Chen, Founder and CEO of Persony. "By combining on-demand document management with real-time collaboration, sales and marketing professionals now have a complete and cost-effective solution to work together."
ShareMethods CEO Eric Hoffert states "Sales and marketing teams have a significant need to deliver online sales presentations to prospects and customers. Likewise, strategy and planning sessions for marketing campaigns and collaborative development of sales strategies are also key requirements for internal staff usage. We are delighted to be able to offer our user base an easy-to-use, powerful, and extremely cost-effective solution to these ongoing business needs. Integration of Persony as an additional on-demand service extends the value and power of the ShareMethods service in a dramatic way"
Persony VShow is a suite of desktop software that a meeting host uses to conduct meetings online. Meeting attendees only need a Web browser. VShow runs on WindowsÂ® XP and 2000.
The Persony Partner Program is targeted at application service providers who want to offer real-time collaboration; hosting resellers who want to offer a high-margin service; and international partners who want to offer Web conferencing locally.
