PHOENIX, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- NewsGator Technologies, Inc., the leading

"Online publishers are looking for new ways to differentiate and offer
customization to their users," said J.B. Holston, president and CEO of
NewsGator. "NewsGator Hosted Solution is a turn-key, fast way to add the
feature-rich RSS aggregation to any online brand."
The Power of RSS Feeds within Existing Web Sites
The NewsGator Hosted Solution brings news, business, entertainment,
sports and dozens of other categories through a personalized RSS reader
accessible from within existing sites. Publishers, media companies, content
providers, financial services companies, professional services firms and any
other company that wants to provide customized news to their online visitors
can benefit from NGHS. Some key features include:
* A Wealth of Content Choices -- In addition to allowing companies
editorial control over the content they recommend to their online users,
NGHS offers an index of hundreds of thousands of feeds across a wide
range of subjects, enabling companies and their subscribers to access an
almost limitless collection of content.
* Expanded Revenue Opportunities -- Since readers can aggregate online
content from one central location; they are likely to stay on that Web
site for longer periods of time. This increased stickiness can lead to
greater revenue through higher advertising rates, more selling
opportunities and higher retention and loyalty
Hosted Solution Offers Rapid Implementation, No Management Hassles
NGHS comes with built-in templates to help customers get up and running
quickly. Simply add-in basic HTML and CSS code, choose the content and be off
and running in as few as a couple weeks. Since the product is hosted at the
NewsGator Data Center, there is no need to manage software or servers.
"I am excited to see this leading edge new product on-stage at DEMO 2006,"
said Chris Shipley, DEMO executive producer. "NewsGator is showing that RSS
enables a practical and useful way for companies to provide greater value to
their customers and increase brand loyalty."
