Application Service Providers iUpload and WebPartz Merge

Mar 11, 2003

iUpload, a provider of content management services is merging with WebPartz, a provider of hosted ebusiness component applications. The new company will transact business under the iUpload brand, and expand its service to manage content from all categories: staff, application, and visitor-generated content. By merging, WebPartz and iUpload form an Application Service Provider (ASP) delivering content management services across all categories. iUpload adds tools from WebPartz to manage content from applications and Web site visitors. These functions include online surveys, email marketing, newsletter publishing, site-wide search, and wireless applications. The result provides a way for marketing organizations to add content management functionality to Web sites and ebusiness portals without requiring IT resources. The new company formed by the merger of iUpload and WebPartz provides these functions as "partz," allowing marketing departments to elevate a brochure-ware Web presence to an ebusiness site by blending partz into a solution that best meets their needs. The content management function will serve as the interface to the other partz, so instead of four or five separate applications, the iUpload interface is the hub for using the other partz.
