Australian Technology Showcase Selects WhoopeeWeb Portal for Queensland Members

<p>ATS Queensland utilises inteRAD's website creation and management technology for real-time updating and reduced administration in a pilot project aimed at creating a solid platform for organisational expansion.</p>
Brisbane - October 23rd
<p>InteRAD technology, an Australian software development tool specialist, today announced that the Queensland chapter of the Australian Technology Showcase (ATS) will develop and deploy a members website using the company's advanced website creation and management technology known as "WhoopeeWeb".</p>
<p>By utilising inteRAD's WhoopeeWeb technology, ATS Queensland will be able to create a member community site that can be managed without the need for any special software or technical expertise. Updating information on the portal can be as simple as typing an email or writing a document in Microsoft Word.</p>
<p>The Australian Technology Showcase is a co-operative Federal/State Government initiative to identify and promote Australian technology products of excellence and to foster export sales of Australian technology. In Queensland the ATS is delivered through the Department of State Development. The new portal forms a key component of ATS Queensland's push to improve communication between its member companies, and facilitate the further expansion of the ATS program.</p>
<p>ATS spokesperson, Neal Muller, said. "The new portal would be the primary communication tool for ATS Queensland members. It will allow the ATS to post announcements, news, upcoming events and other items with minimum delays in a format that is easy for all members to access and understand.</p>
<p>"Because of our expanding member base we were looking for a simpler, more reliable way of communicating with members. Now members can log on to the internet and be up to date. Members will be able to view the latest news, post their own information, and interact with other members more easily" he said.</p>
<p>By enabling users to regularly update, and maintain full control over content, WhoopeeWeb will also effectively lower total cost of ownership for the ATS, while delivering improved flexibility.</p>
<p>inteRAD's Marketing Director Peter Cobcroft said, "We are delighted to be able to assist the Department of State Development to better serve its ATS members. WhoopeeWeb is the future of website technology. We see it as an obvious requirement to enable business to use the web productively.'</p>
<p>"Over the past few years businesses have recognised that static web sites just don't work. Companies wanting to embrace the capacity of the web to grow sales and deliver customer services cost effectively need to empower their marketing and administration teams to manage their web presence and drive their electronic marketing campaigns, and WhoopeeWeb gives businesses that power," he said.</p>
<p>WhoopeeWeb is a member of the ATS and is the second product in inteRAD's portfolio to gain ATS membership. This makes inteRAD one of a select few ATS members to have more than one product in the ATS.</p>
