ProtonMedia and RWD partner to add third dimension to human capital management

Ok, waiting time's over. I mentioned earlier today that we'd have some big news coming at you from the ASTD 2010 Conference in Chicago, so without further ado, here it is: ProtonMedia and RWD have partnered to develop the first 3-D workplace for human capital management.

RWD is a leading provider of human and operational performance improvement solutions. Thousands of organizations worldwide use RWD's solutions, including many Fortune 500 companies. They're in industries including life sciences, energy, and manufacturing, among others.

We'll be working together to integrate RWD's technology into ProtoSphere. The result will be a high-performance collaborative platform that quickly connects people to their colleagues, and gives them immediate access to the information they need.

Our partnership officially kicks off today from the ASTD Conference. RWD is exhibiting at booth #913, and I've joined them to represent ProtonMedia. If you're here at the show and have stopped by the booth, you might have noticed the signage for ProtoSphere.

If you haven't swung by yet, by all means, feel free! If you want to catch up, I'll either be at the booth or mingling around the show floor. Buzz my mobile at 215-350-2461 if you can't find me and want to chat. :)

But that's not all we have going on with RWD today. We're also co-exhibiting with RWD at the SAPPHIRE conference in Orlando. If you're unfamiliar with the show, SAPPHIRE is the leading event for SAP customers and partners to meet and learn about new SAP technologies and solutions.

RWD is exhibiting at booth #2509, and some folks from the ProtonMedia sales team are on hand to meet, greet, mingle, and share news of our partnership.

I'm excited to get things going with RWD, and looking forward to putting the new platform into the hands of employers and their people. If you're interested in more details on our partnership, give our press release a read below. We'll keep you in the loop on our progress!
