Intranets.com Inks Content Pacts

Intranets.com this week sealed strategic partnerships with firstsource.com and NeedBandwidth Inc.

As part of the company's strategic alliance program, Intranets.com's new partners may deliver a free intranet solution to their own customers under a private or co-branded label. By offering their own custom-branded intranet service to small and medium-sized business users, firstsource.com and NeedBandwidth expect to benefit from increased site traffic, improved stickiness, and shared revenue streams derived from transactions.

An idealab! spawn, Intranets.com, has entered into several strategic partnerships with companies including Hello Direct and Inc.com to provide a co-branded intranet solution. Each intranet provides its users with communication and collaboration applications such as document sharing, group discussions, instant messaging, announcement postings and calendar scheduling.

"We utilize the Intranets.com offering to organize many internal projects ourselves," said Bryan Breckenridge, director of services at firstsource.com. "So making Intranets.com available to our small business customers via the firstsource.com Business Resource Store was an easy decision."

firstsource corp. is a B2B e-commerce provider of business procurement solutions for small and medium-sized companies and Internet resellers.
