GageIn Ushers in New Era of Content-Driven Collaboration With Public Beta Launch of Its Business Information Networking Platform

Content-Driven, Enterprise-Grade Platform Enables Busy Business Professionals to Explore Information, Collaborate With Colleagues, Promote and Syndicate Content, and Connect With Partners and Prospects to Uncover Business Opportunities

PALM DESERT, CA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - Ushering in a new era of content-driven collaboration, GageIn today announced the public beta launch of its enterprise-grade business information networking platform. The platform is now available free to business users who can use GageIn.com to follow companies and explore relevant content such as news stories, press releases, videos, slide presentations, financial and analyst reports, blog feeds, social media conversations, case studies, and brochures. Equipped with an unprecedented stream of information at their fingertips, business users can leverage the social features of GageIn to collaborate with colleagues and make the right connections outside their organization to uncover business opportunities. Additionally, GageIn can be used as a platform for promoting content, within the GageIn community, or via one-click syndication to popular social sites.

"GageIn fills a critical void in the market by offering the only solution that equips professionals with information exploration and social collaboration capabilities in a single, unified platform," said Luosheng Peng, Co-founder and CEO, GageIn. "Today, busy business professionals are drowning in data and, even more frustrating, some of the intelligence gathered remains hopelessly trapped within departmental silos. GageIn is designed to enable business professionals to explore information, collaborate with colleagues, connect with customers, prospects, partners and vendors, and promote content on GageIn or syndicate to social sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn."

Business professionals -- from SMBs to large enterprises -- including C-Level, marketing, sales, R&D, product management, and others across an organization can leverage GageIn's five core functions -- "explore," "receive," "connect," "collaborate" and "promote" -- to increase sales, gather competitive intelligence, track market data, promote the company, and develop alliances. Some notable features of GageIn include:

  • Managing content -- including company news, white papers, regulatory filings, YouTube videos, SlideShare presentations, tweets and more -- through "filter," "tag," "read later" and other customizable options. Even pull colleagues into conversations by tagging them, commenting on news and company updates, and sharing via email, or messaging, to spur collaboration.
  • Link GageIn to your Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn accounts to pull content into GageIn, or syndicate out to these sites.
  • Enter, upload, or import contacts from Outlook, webmail, spreadsheets, LinkedIn, etc. to quickly get started building your network on GageIn.

"I needed an easy way to keep up with my customers and sales prospects in order to present more relevant solutions to them," said Tom Borsellino, Regional Sales Manager, Manta. "GageIn aggregates relevant updates and allows me to filter them by information type, giving me more control over my information stream than other tools I've evaluated. It's great to get an email summary of relevant news in my inbox every day. I can monitor what's important to companies and even see what employees are blogging about, without having to search through numerous information sources. GageIn is a great tool for professionals who need to stay up-to-date on company updates."

"We discovered that the traditional models for networking and collaboration solutions needed to be turned upside-down to focus on business, not individual, needs," said Jeff Xi, Co-Founder & Chief Architect, GageIn. "Unlike other solutions, we believe content is the foundation for yielding smarter connections, collaboration and, ultimately, better business results. Our robust content aggregation engine and features that allow users to customize, prioritize, and target information based on their needs is a core GageIn differentiator."
