Intridea has announced the launch of Presently.com, the company's new professional microblogging environment.
Intridea, an agile software development and services firm that focuses on Web 2.0 solutions, said Presently.com is aimed at providing enterprise users with a productive and professional blogging experience. The new microblogging community provides features such as group messaging; the ability to embed formatted documents, video and images; and message capacity beyond 140 characters.
Intridea announced Presently.com at the South by Southwest 2009 conference on March 14. Presently.com is based on Intridea's Present.ly enterprise microblogging tool. Intridea recently announced enhanced speed and performance in the latest release of the core Present.ly technology.
"Presently.com flips the signal-to-noise ratio from 20-80 to 80-20, so serious users spend less time sifting through trivial information," said Yoshi Maisami, co-founder of Intridea, in a statement. "While the current interface and feature set will go a long way toward achieving that objective, we'll keep listening to users and implementing new features."
Presently.com is currently free to all users. Companies that use Presently.com can choose later to switch to either the SAAS (software-as-a-service) or enterprise internal version of Present.ly, while retaining the same feature set, user profile information, updates and messages.
"Intridea now offers more options for business microblogging than any other company on the planet," Maisami said. "Present.ly is available either as a secure, software-as-a-service offering or installed behind the company firewall. With the addition of Presently.com, we can help companies achieve the benefits of microblogging securely, professionally and on their terms."
