Portland, OR (PRWEB) November 20, 2006
123 Enterprises Inc. has announced a delay in releasing its http://www.LocalSitesFor.com, a product promising to be an affordable and highly competitive solution for hundreds of thousands of local businesses that currently have little or no presence on the Internet. Originally slated to launch at the end of October, the company has set a new target date of January 2007.
Earlier this week the company's CEO, Kelly Hodsdon, stated, "Frankly we've been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive response we've received about a local search option that will actually work for businesses." Hodsdon went on to say, "With that response has come some new opportunities that we think could be of great benefit to our customers and so we want to integrate those before going live."
The company could have gone forward and brought its product to market along the earlier time line, however, it was felt that to do so would ultimately be a disservice to both the company's clients and sales force. Well aware of the growing number of options presented to by so called local search engines or local portals, the company felt it would be far better to wait and present its complete package to clients. Additionally, the company felt that it would be handicapping its sales force of local agents by having more to ultimately offer than would be immediately apparent without postponing to incorporate the additional features.
The company has added over 70 syndication partners and distribution to over 800 sites which will be taking content feeds. These previously unidentified opportunities have meant retooling some of the software that is such a unique and important asspects of how LocalSitesFor.com works.
Hodsdon said, "It's been a bit of a disappointment to our local agents who are anxious to get underway, but ultimately they understand that an enhanced package is good for them and good for their clients."
