AMHERST, NH and MIAMI, FL, July 11, 2006 - Ektron, Inc., a technology and market leader in Web content management software, and BGT Partners, a full-service interactive marketing and technology consultancy, today announced BGT Partners is one of only three Ektron Platinum Certified Partners. As a premier partner in the southern region, BGT spearheads many of Ektron’s most extensive website, business partner portal, intranet and extranet deployments.
Since 2001, the strategic relationship between Ektron and BGT has enabled innovative Web content management solutions for several dynamic client sites, including Audi, Volkswagen, Bright House Networks and Concord Camera. In 2005, Concord Camera and BGT won Ektron’s first ever All-Star MVP Award for the best overall customer site for the Concord Camera Web portal, www.concord-camera.com. BGT integrated Ektron’s CMS400.NET all-in-one Web content management platform for creating, deploying and managing Web, intranet and extranet sites and extended the application by designing a custom “Product Manager” to enable Concord Camera to easily manage information for more than 40 products.
“When evaluating content management and portal software for our clients, Ektron has proven time and time again to be the perfect solution. Our work with Ektron has resulted in a one-hundred percent success rate for deployment and adoption for various types of projects. From mid-market implementations being launched within a 3-month time frame, to work for large enterprises resulting in multiple sites, in multiple languages across the globe, our work coupled with Ektron technology has resulted in rave reviews from end users, Web developers and clients alike,” says David Clarke, Managing Partner of BGT Partners. “We are very proud of these distinctions. We have worked very closely with Ektron over the years and look forward to continued success as a member of the Ektron elite family of partners.”
Ed Rogers, Chief Operating Officer, Ektron, added, “The projects launched by BGT exemplify the very best in today’s Web community. Its work continues to mesh innovative visual concepts and all-inclusive marketing tactics with well-mapped out content and strong technology fundamentals. BGT also has mastered one of CMS400.NET’s major strengths, its flexibility in customization. The firm develops customized modules that extend the use of our software in order to continue to serve the unique business needs of their clients, which in turn helps to strengthen the relationship between all parties involved. We look forward to seeing what the BGT team comes up with next.”
