Concentric Network, Intranets.com Partner

Concentric Network Corp. Monday teamed with Intranets.com's to offer free enterprise tools to its small- and medium-sized business clients.

The service will be offered from Concentric's (CNCX) online gateway, a business center designed to improve the quality of enterprises.

In less than six months since the idealab! incubator launched its free intranet service, 90,000 small businesses and groups have registered for their own custom intranet. The Intranets.com portal solution provides users with everything they need to create their own intranet -- from collaboration applications and custom news to personalized vendor services. The Intranets.com business applications enable organizations to manage documents, publish community announcements and maintain users' contact information.

"We win by reaching new customers and our partners win by gaining a service to add breadth and depth to their offerings. And clearly, our joint customers win from all angles," said Steve Crummey, chief executive officer of Intranets.com.

Intranets.com took a step toward the limelight last week by signing on with advertising firm DoubleClick's (DCLK) in a deal that gives the ad powerhouse exclusive rights to sell ads on Intranets.com's sites. With the agreement, Intranets.com will use DoubleClick's ad serving and tracking technology.
