Ektron Brings Together Customers and Partners at Annual Local User Group in Sydney, Australia

User Community Comes Together to Discuss Projects, Network With Peers and See Latest Ektron Technology

NASHUA, NH and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Ektron, Inc., a technology and market leader in Web content management software, held its annual local user group in Sydney, Australia last month. Part of a 12 city world-wide tour, the Sydney local user group received an enormous amount of positive feedback from attendees, reinforcing the excitement Ektron continues to see for its Web content management solution in the Asia Pacific region.

Ektron's local user groups offer attendees a chance to share experiences while networking with their peers and Ektron's own executives and engineers. The sessions also included two presentations focusing on Ektron's new PageBuilder technology as well as Ektron's Web synchronization technology -- eSync.

"Ektron has a very strong community of users in the Pacific Rim," stated Greg Nunn, Ektron's Asia Pacific managing director. "We realize the importance of pulling this community together to promote the exchange of information and encourage feedback on Ektron's solutions while showcasing some exciting new functionality to our user base."

PageBuilder is aimed at providing marketing departments or other non-technical users the tools to build entire Web pages on their own. The Ektron developer community can also leverage the PageBuilder as a simple way to reuse and share common functionality from one Ektron-powered site to another. Ektron's eSync simplifies the process of deploying, changing or updating membership-driven Web 2.0 sites by bi-directionally managing content changes, templates and code.

Angela Forgan, an Ektron customer and project manager in the education industry, commented, "The Ektron Local User Group provided the opportunity to network with peers and Ektron partners to exchange ideas and discuss Web projects in an engaging, energetic atmosphere. There was great value gained from the product demonstrations and I am looking forward to implementing the Ektron eSync technology! It could benefit the way we update our Web sites saving our organization heaps of time."
