LinkEdge Technologies Goes Eco-Friendly With AltUse.com

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwire - September 3, 2009) - Software development firm LinkEdge Technologies has successfully supported the launch of http://www.altuse.com, a comprehensive resource for alternative use strategies, after eight months of intensive development.

The sleek, new interactive web-portal enables site visitors to search, post, rank, and share ideas for extending the lifecycle of everyday products.

"Gearing up for this particular launch was very exciting," recalls Renu Chopra, President of LinkEdge. "We've always believed in the concept of alternative uses in our personal lives, so it was a natural fit for us. We knew the potential was huge, as it provides an online source for offline behaviors."

With its appropriately eco-friendly "green" interface and clean look and feel features, http://www.altuse.com functionality includes a straightforward registration process, effortless navigational flow and simple form templates to enter new alternative uses and products. The site leverages Wiki collaboration, search, and user-generated content technologies across numerous product categories.
