Plumtree Creates New Solutions Group for Portal-Based Retail Applications

May 21, 2004

Plumtree Software has launched a new retail solutions group to develop, market, and sell Plumtree-powered solutions to the retail industry. Staffed with sales, marketing, and engineering professionals, the group is focused on working with retail-focused services and software companies to build solutions for store performance management, associate productivity and retention, and supplier collaboration. By using Plumtree's portal, integration and collaboration software to build these solutions, retailers can combine data and functionality from many existing systems.

Plumtree Enterprise Web Suite can deliver information based on role, geography, or department. Plumtree integrates access and profile information from any user directory or enterprise application, enabling retailers to easily secure and customize the user experience for store managers, associates, suppliers and corporate employees. The Suite can also Manage applications for many audiences through one framework: Plumtree allows retailers to build and secure store management, supplier collaboration and employee services applications separately, yet share services and provide a common look and feel across them all. The Suite provides for two-way communication and collaboration and can be deployed to wireless devices or low-bandwidth environments as well.
