Purpose-Built Portal and Software-as-a-Service Solution Provider Fuz1on Launches Today

Fuz1on, a full-service portal solution and management consultancy, officially opened its doors today to provide clients with the tools and project management needed to effectively build out custom enterprise portals, as well as migrate their data to the cloud.

Set up as an incubator, initially by leading global marketing agency, Momentum Worldwide, part of McCann Worldgroup and an Interpublic Group agency, Fuz1on vetted dozens of solution provider partners to help build Momentum a global portal to streamline communications between their 2000+ employees around the world. Based on the success of the Momentum portal, Fuz1on spun off as a separate company and is supported by a consolidation of proven, best-in-class applications offered through software as a service hosted in the cloud. The complete Fuz1on package includes a fully customizable portal featuring blogs and microblogs, wikis, dashboards, widgets, enterprise search, large file transfer and cloud computing. Fuz1on's hand-picked flagship partners offering these services include:

— NETVIBES for Dashboard/Widgets

— EXALEAD for Enterprise Search

— PING IDENTITY for Single Sign On

— WEBCARGO for Large File Delivery

— SOCIALTEXT for microblogging and integrated wiki development and support

Fuz1on also provides clients with project and vendor management expertise. “It's so common for miscommunication issues to arise when there are several vendors involved in a project, especially one as complex as building a portal or handling complex data management from multiple sources,” said Doug Pierce, Fuz1on president. “By choosing Fuz1on, our project managers will manage all of the vendors involved as central point of contact, and will take the burden off of the client. It's a win win and we're so excited to be going to market with this solution that was game changing for our first client, Momentum Worldwide.”
