ProtoShare improves performance and launches new brand identity, website

New branding reflects a more sophisticated prototyping application, cloud move increases performance.

Portland, Ore. – May 12, 2010 – Site9, Inc., developer of the industry’s fastest growing collaborative prototyping tool for websites and web applications, today announced the unveiling of a new brand identity and website. In addition, engineers moved ProtoShare hosting to the cloud. The moves set the stage for a more flexible, scaleable, and better performing ProtoShare.

The rebranding initiative comes after Site9 announced the expansion of their executive team and the release of ProtoShare 3.8. The application has evolved from serving small shops to also meeting the sophisticated needs of enterprise users.

“After record sales growth in 2009, we’re looking forward to accelerating our momentum. The new brand is sleeker and more modern, representing a more mature product,” said acting COO Charlie Burrows.

In addition, ProtoShare’s website was completely overhauled to complement the rebranding effort. Searching through content and solutions is much simpler than before. Up-to-date product information, new tutorials, and an enhanced blog and user forum further help customers find the information they need.

To keep up with ProtoShare growth, the move to the cloud allows ProtoShare to add more resources to better serve customers. Early benchmarks have already reported a 30+% increase in performance improvements.

“We’re very excited about the progress we have made over the past two years,” said CEO Andrew Mottaz. “ProtoShare is a highly evolved product and it’s time that our image caught up with the rest of the application.”
