Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2007
introNetworks, a technology company that creates online communities for professionals, announced the immediate availability of an online method for creating instant online communities using software developed with Adobe® Flex technology.
"Following on the recent release of the Adobe Developer Community we are pleased to be able to show continued technological leadership in the social networking market," said Kymberlee Weil, President and co-founder of introNetworks. "With Community Builder we have given our customers the power to create their own communities with control over every aspect of the site."
introNetworks has been working closely with its customers for over a year to develop this online method for them. With the release of the Community Builder customers can now work collaboratively with key stakeholders in their organization and build the site at their own pace. Early users of this new capability have been able to configure a complete site in an afternoon.
"We licensed introNetworks' visualization matching engine to further enhance our own enterprise social network solutions. And with this new online Community Builder, it honestly could not be easier or more intuitive to use," said Shelli Wright, Creative Director, at Neighborhood America. "I'm able to launch sites for prospective customers in hours, not weeks."
"With Community Builder we have broken down the process of creating an online community into three easy steps. Our customers upload graphics, define what types of people will be in the social network and create tags, questions and select which features will be presented to the end users," said Mark Sylvester, CEO and Co-Founder of introNetworks. "Our customers have reacted very positively to this enabling technology and given us tremendous feedback during the Beta release. They have told us that the Community Builder gives them much greater freedom and control of the creation of their online community."
