Ektron Picks BGT Partners and Falcon-Software Company as Its Partners of the Year


Thursday, January 18, 2007; 03:44 AM

Ektron, Inc., a technology and market leader in web content management software, today announced that BGT Partners and Falcon-Software Company are its 2006 Partners of the Year. Chosen from Ektron’s extensive network of web design and development firms, interactive agencies and systems integrators, both organizations provided exceptional website design and development services to customers implementing Ektron’s CMS400.NET web content management platform.

“When we introduced our new partner program early last year, we pictured a model where Ektron would develop a complete website management product with all the web technologies customers want while our partners would provide expert services for design, deployment, management and training. They would, in effect, be an extension of Ektron’s professional services group,” said George Rassias, vice president of sales, Ektron. “Many of our partners embraced this opportunity, but BGT Partners and Falcon-Software reached even farther. They mastered integration and extension of CMS400.NET, and they married design aesthetic with practical application to create comprehensive business solutions for our customers.”

Ektron’s partner program is designed to help create demand for partners’ services, enhance the customer experience with expanded development and implementation support and make it easier to be an active participant in Ektron’s growing community. BGT Partners, a full-service interactive marketing and technology consultancy, and Falcon-Software Company, a leading web design and multimedia firm, took full advantage of the partner program benefits.

A long-time partner, BGT Partners achieved Ektron Platinum Certified Partner status, launched multi-site, multilingual projects for Bright House Networks (http://www.mybrighthouse.com) and Teleperformance (http://www.teleperformance.com), participated in the growing Ektron web developer community, won an Ektron All-Star Award and secured several new business opportunities that will result in more deployments in 2007.

David Clarke, BGT Partners’ managing partner, said, “The strength of the BGT-Ektron relationship comes from our fundamental commitment to our clients. We both understand that we are only successful when our customers are successful, and we take great pride in sharing that every BGT-Ektron project has been delivered on time and on budget. The Ektron product and BGT services teams combine to provide complex global solutions that manage multiple languages, localization of sites, extensive content and unique client requirements and deliver comprehensive support for upgrades, technical issues and ongoing training and education.”

Falcon-Software Company saw all of its programming and project management staff become Ektron Certified Developers. It was the Partner of the Month for June and achieved Gold Certified Partner status in October. The firm completed several implementations in 2006, including Dexter Magnetic Technologies (http://www.dextermag.com), Viking Air Limited (http://www.vikingair.com), Densitron Technologies (http://www.densitron.com), Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau (http://www.gotolouisville.com), Information and Communications Technology Council (http://www.ictc-ctic.ca/en/) and Industrial Electric Wire & Cable (http://www.iewc.com), and will launch many more in 2007.

“We are honored to receive the 2006 Partner of the Year Award from Ektron,” said John Austin, vice president of business development. “Our partnership with Ektron played a pivotal role in our company having one of its best years in our 13-year history. Ektron has really shown its commitment to its partners and we anticipate an even brighter future for our partnership in 2007.”
