BOSTON and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:BVSN), a leading provider of e-business and engagement management solutions, today unveiled at the E2 Conference a new ecosystem of partners to continue momentum of the Clearvale® PaasPort Partner Program. The company announced three new partnerships in North America including Collective HR Solutions, i2i benefits, and Wild at Work to meet the increasing needs of enterprises to engage more effectively and seamlessly with employees, partners, suppliers, and customers.

The Clearvale PaasPort Partner Program enables partners to build a line of business in the cloud by reselling and/or hosting the Clearvale enterprise social networking solution to their business customers to generate new, recurring revenue streams. The Clearvale PaasPort Partner Program continues to grow rapidly worldwide across a broad range of industries including human resources and employee benefit consulting, telecommunications and Internet service providers, business process outsourcers, system integrators, and many more. Leveraging the Clearvale PaasPort Partner Program:

  • Gives partners the ability to host and sell branded, customized business social networks in their own datacenters, or to resell Clearvale networks hosted by BroadVision in a multi-tenant cloud
  • Provides easy customization and an open API that allows partners to build custom, industry-specific applications, then sell and deliver them through the Clearvale social networking platform
  • Enables partners and their customers to create social intranets, extranets, and public-facing Web sites, or a social enterprise ecosystem, which combines all types and is managed together as a whole

Through this unique program partnering companies can bundle their services on the cloud-based social business platform and resell the Clearvale solution to their existing customers, either on their own or as part of a larger package of services. There are three types of Clearvale PaasPort partners:

  • Resellers: Partner resells Clearvale branded networks (BroadVision hosts)
  • Integrators: Partner sells co-branded Clearvale networks (BroadVision hosts dedicated Clearvale instance)
  • OEMs: Partner sells co-branded Clearvale networks (Partner hosts)

"Enterprise social networking is one of the fastest growing technology sectors today. The expansion of the Clearvale PaasPort Partner Program demonstrates our commitment to enabling partners to reap the benefits of this growth market without the investment in infrastructure or engineering," said Peter Chu, Vice President of Strategy, Products, and Marketing at BroadVision. "We are excited about our new partnerships and look forward to the continued success and expansion of our partner program in North America and worldwide."
