Portland, OR (PressExposure) July 25, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ Site9, a leading developer of collaborative web development software, today announced the selection of their web-based ProtoShare tool by the 3M Corporation, a Fortune 100 technology and manufacturing company. ProtoShare was selected for worldwide prototyping and collaboration on 3M interactive projects.
Both 3M and their interactive marketing vendors will use ProtoShare to create and collaborate on website content across multiple global locations. ProtoShare will help management maintain consistent branding across all worldwide websites, while also giving the local teams the flexibility to customize. Additionally, because ProtoShare is a web-based collaborative tool, it will provide a global platform for a real-time global conversation between all offices and vendors, making for quicker decisions and better understanding between all parties.
"ProtoShare will facilitate a web-based collaborative approach to simplify and improve the website building and review process for all of 3M's websites,â said Kim Beach, Manager, 3M.com Strategy & User Experience. âOur team is spread across 84 countries. Distance and the lack of a good tool have made coordinating our international development teams a challenge for the company. ProtoShare's feature set allows us to consolidate our essential design artifacts, team input and workflow. This improves our ability to execute with global consistency and local relevancy."
"We are thrilled that a leading corporation like 3M has selected ProtoShare to improve their interactive development process," said Site9 CEO Andrew Mottaz. "Creating, setting, and maintaining consistent and effective development guidelines is extremely important in getting a project right, on time, and on budget."
