INgage Networks and VERDINO LLC Partnership Combines Two Powerhouses to Help Enterprises Move Beyond Social Business

The partnership brings together two of the most experienced entities in the social business industry to solve complex, strategic challenges in ways that stimulate accelerated growth for enterprise clients

October 02, 2012

INgage Networks announces its partnership with VERDINO LLC, a marketing and innovation consultancy focused on formulating bold strategies for achieving transformational growth by embracing new technology and business trends. This announcement highlights one of the several highly strategic partnerships that INgage is developing to support the company’s unique approach of providing comprehensive end-to-end solutions that empower its customers to fully leverage the value of their social software investment.

The partnership brings together two of the most experienced entities in the industry: established in 1999, INgage Networks was the first social software technology provider to serve the market, and VERDINO, led by strategist Greg Verdino, one of the industry’s most prominent early advocates of social media and content marketing, and former executive of social business consultancy Dachis Group.

“INgage Networks' perspective on the power of business networks meshes perfectly with my own view that the hyper-connected economy is more than social,” said Greg Verdino, President of VERDINO. “This is an environment that requires more than simply social software. INgage provides exactly what our clients demand -- an enterprise-class platform that is truly channel and device agnostic, open APIs that allow for extreme customization and seamless integration, and a suite of tools that make it possible for the technology to serve the business (and the people in the business), not the other way around.”

“VERDINO’s depth of experience and marketing know-how is a tremendous asset for our enterprise clients that face the complex, strategic challenges associated with adopting social solutions at a transformative level,” said Christine Richards, INgage Networks’ Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It is exciting to see the power of our combined strength already yielding results, with extremely grateful clients who have gained not only a new perspective and vision for their company, but also the means to transform that into reality.”

While INgage Networks remains focused on its core business offerings – combining a component-based social technology platform with network strategy consulting – the company relies on a strong partner network to complete its solutions. Like VERDINO, these partners have extensive industry expertise and provide best-in-class services that are consistent with INgage’s focus on customer success.
