ITBrix/ WordFrame announced last week, via PRWeb, the appointment of my company as solution providers for WordFrame – with a special emphasis on our Asia Pacific region.

I’m excited about this. In various forums and conversations and on this and other blogs I have been promoting the use of social media in business for a while. With this new partnership I can go beyond the theory and exhortation and help companies and organizations more directly with a product I know works, is value for money and will scale.

As part of the announcement of the partnership, I posted my version of a “social media release” on the Webarts company site and am including the core information here also for good measure.

Copying of the content of this post is encouraged :).
