NEWTON, Mass.-- July 10, 2001-- Newmediary, Inc., a provider of online directory solutions for content and community sites, today announced a strategic alliance with BizSpace, Inc., which develops and operates B2B web sites in the telecommunications and technology industries.
Under the terms of the agreement, Newmediary will integrate its online directory tool and RFP engine with the content and community resources on each of the nine BizSpace sites creating the Buyer's Guide and RFP Centers. The alliance is an attempt to enable users of each site the ability to advertise and promote their specialty service in the directories, while also providing access to active Requests For Proposals (RFPs) specific to their industry. Among the BizSpace operated web sites are CLEC.com, ASPconnection.com, BroadbandInfo.com, CallCenterBiz.com, and TelecomBiz.com.
"Buyers and service providers are continually searching for faster, less expensive, and more efficient ways of doing business. And, recent statistics from research firms indicate that company outsourcing is on the rise", said John Federman, Newmediary president and CEO. "The partnership between Newmediary and BizSpace is the perfect combination - users have access to a robust directory and RFP resource through brands they trust for news, information and research."
The new Buyer's Guide and RFP Centers complement the existing services offered by BizSpace, says Martha Gershun, President and CEO. "Since our first site, CLEC.com, was introduced in 1996, telecom managers and executives have looked to BizSpace for up-to-the-minute news. The partnership with Newmediary will provide these executives another avenue to aggressively seek new business."
