Naples, FL (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
The online world is abuzz with talk about social networking. But few companies have truly grasped its potential. That's why Neighborhood America developed ELAvate, the first solution for businesses that want to turn consumer engagement into real dollars and real results.
Beyond the 'social' aspect of expanding contacts, businesses now more than ever have the power to learn what excites and drives consumers, and what continues to bring them back - without losing sight of their financial goals. Understanding that social networking technology is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, ELAvate is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that enables businesses to build their own online communities, and tailor them to tackle a variety of challenges.
ELAvate is the latest version of Neighborhood America's enterprise social networking platform. The ELAvate trademark is significant in that it represents the company's tagline, "Engage. Listen. Act." But more importantly, it describes a growing need by organizations that are demanding value from customer engagement to "elevate" business outcomes.

"We listen to our customers," said David Bankston, Neighborhood America's co-founder and CTO. "While our infrastructure and our partnership-approach to serving them consistently exceeds expectations, they desire more flexibility with our applications, and that is what we are delivering."
Consider a brand that is focused on gaining market share; a manufacturer that is striving to speed time-to-market; or a state government seeking public input to spur long-term economic development. These scenarios represent Neighborhood America's diverse customers, and while they all share a common need to engage consumers for a purpose and to get results, the means by which they accomplish that can differ dramatically.
ELAvate is already earning industry accolades, having recently been named a Codie Award finalist for 'Best Social Networking Solution' by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). The Codie Awards honor achievement and vision in software, education technology and digital content.
"We are committed to developing best-in-class solutions, and the release of ELAvate is yet another building block in helping us to maintain our leadership position," said Kim Patrick Kobza, President and CEO of Neighborhood America. "Our customers' ability to leverage the expertise we have gained since 1999, and benefit from the substantial research and development costs that have been shared across several hundreds of enterprise customers is unparalleled. We are proud to bring our ELAvate solution to the marketplace."
