We just announced a milestone partnership with Sage to quickly integrate Netvibes personal dashboard technology into their next ERP X3 release by Q1 2010. Sage is one of the world’s largest business software providers for small and mid-sized businesses, so we’re very excited to be able to work together to bring Netvibes to so many, so soon.
As many of you are well aware, the modern workday is getting faster and more complex. People working at companies of all sizes need to juggle a variety of business apps, industry feeds, real-time client and competitor news–as well as their favorite personal media, social networks, widget and web apps. With our latest Netvibes Wasabi release (you can sign up for our private beta here) we eliminated the back and forth window switching and refreshing many people do between their widget startpages, feed readers and real-time web apps. Now with Sage, we hope to help make the workday easier by bringing enterprise tools and your personal interests together on a single, personalized workplace dashboard.
In short, we want to make your workday a little bit more like Netvibes—quick, easy to manage, and 100% personalized by you. This vision is becoming a reality as we speak: We’ve already engaged in the process of joint development to build these new applications together and starting today, Sage will begin offering Netvibes Premium Dashboards and Netvibes for Enterprise to their customers worldwide.
Furthermore, we believe this partnership will greatly advance the Enterprise 2.0 movement by combining the best business software (Sage ERP X3) with the best Web 2.0 technologies and personal environment (Netvibes) and by bringing the best of these two worlds together as one.
