Replacing a home-grown RSS system, NewsGator Enterprise Server, the award-winning ( and market-leading Enterprise RSS solution, will enable Rohm and Haas to pull in competitive intelligence, company news and internal RSS feeds from multiple sources and deliver them directly to employees via the Web, mobile devices and their desktops.

"Before NewsGator, we were really facing information overload, with no centralized location for us to share that information," said Cindy Callan, IT process analyst at Rohm and Haas. "NewsGator has given us a strategic, easy-to-use delivery system that ensures our employees will actually read the information we provide for them, making them far more productive and informed."
