TARZANA, Calif. (June 26, 2007) - In today's competitive landscape, companies are looking to unite best of breed teams even though the team members may be geographically dispersed. InfoStreet Inc., (www.infostreet.com) creator of the on-demand, IT software suite, StreetSmart, is keeping pace with this changing workplace dynamic by offering employers web-based applications aimed at improving workflow and employee efficiency, whether they be under one physical roof or under one virtual umbrella. In addition, with top talent hard to come by, employers are using technology-based incentives to lure the best. With StreetSmart, employers can offer work-from-home incentives to employees to help off-set the high price of commuting and subsequent environmental damage. With this full complement of on-demand IT applications, employees work as a seamless team, with full and complete access to all their StreetSmart office applications from any location using a simple Internet browser. Designed to function as a company's full suite of in-house IT applications (including email, calendaring, shared calendaring, task management, CRM, knowledge base, file sharing and more), StreetSmart's anywhere access design makes it easy for companies to connect employees in disparate locations under one "virtual roof."
According to Don Nora, CIO for Continental Airline's credit union (Continental FCU), "StreetSmart has been a godsend for us. It has allowed me to unite our offices from coast to coast in real-time and has improved our collaboration and communication ten-fold."
Siamak Farah, CEO for InfoStreet explains, "This is the wave of the future. Companies can now effectively connect their satellite offices and create a virtual workspace that not only encourages collaboration, but enhances it."
Designed to fulfill the IT needs of companies both large and small, StreetSmart can effectively replace an organization's technology burden by utilizing an always-up-to-date Software-as-a-Service. This eliminates the need for regular software updates and expensive license renewals and can reduce the need for top-dollar IT management and overheard.
According to David Wright, IT Manager of the Town of Stratford, and a current StreetSmart customer, "utilizing Streetsmart has allowed our town to avoid the heavy costs associated with securing our town's external internet communications, creating redundant network infrastructures, and applying routine software maintenance. With StreetSmart, the Town of Stratford obtained a robust set of intranet and internet tools that allow our town personnel to remain responsive and connected through real-time internet-based communication while avoiding the associated maintenance costs of ownership."
