Minnetonka, MN (PRWEB) June 7, 2006
SpivO Search and BizBar.com, a leading provider of branded, dynamic toolbar applications, announced today a strategic alliance under which SpivO.com will launch and distribute customized Spivo toolbars powered by BizBar.com.
The toolbar has been created to increase visitor retention and provide a superior user experience while simultaneously enabling SpivO.com to promote its content beyond the boundaries of its website. SpivO elected to partner with BizBar because of BizBars' proven experience in delivering these kinds of solutions and their focus on helping publishers monetize their own brand equity online.
"The new Spivo Browser Toolbars will allow our members to access all of the unique search capabilities available on Spivo.com including travel options, movie times, local restaurants and auctions as well as our image, audio, and video search engines, from anywhere on the Web. The new toolbar will provide our users direct access to BizBar's world-class search capabilities in addition to our own. We feel that BizBar and SpivO have common objectives that can be achieved together," said Jason Bland of SpivO's managing company, Adviatech Corp. "We are very excited about this alliance."
"The Partnership is truly a perfect fit for both of us," explains Scott Long, CEO of Entrepreneur's Place, Inc., the parent company of BizBar.com. "By aligning ourselves with SpivO.com, we significantly increase our reach and have the opportunity to really showcase our search capabilities. With its vast community network, SpivO.com is a perfect partner for our BizBar toolbar solutions."
