  • Mediasurface, the fastest growing content management solution provider, signs new Pepperio partners in Australia

21st March 2007, Australia - Mediasurface celebrates new success for Pepperio with the announcement of five new partners. Following its recent launch in the Australian market, Pepperio, the hosted website content management solution for SMEs, has received an exciting reception from Australian web and design agencies, recognised by the signing of ACP, Designstreet, Hypersphere, Studio Spec, and Twenty10.

Pepperio, from Mediasurface, offers small and medium sized businesses a 'one stop' website solution which delivers corporate quality websites at SME prices. Pepperio is only available through authorised channel partners. Since its arrival in Australia, it has been recruiting keen interest from design, website agencies, and internet consultancies alike.

Paul Jones of Twenty10 comments;

"We all know in 2007 every business, whether large or small, must project a professional image online. After-all, it's now one of the most intimate connections a customer can make with your brand. Potential customers are making buying decisions everyday based on what they see. With the hosted Pepperio solution, we're able to stay focused on the feel and design aspects of the site, whilst our clients enjoy the power to continually refine the content and keep it interesting - without any need for IT skills. It’s a break-through solution that's making a big difference to any business serious about their reputation - and growth aspirations."

Chris Tew, Senior Vice President of Mediasurface comments;

"Pepperio is a new product for the Australian small business. Designed specifically for SMEs to manage and run their websites, the solution offers enterprise level functionality such as taxonomy based search, Google site maps and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). I believe it is these serious business features, offered at small business prices, which has and will continue to secure Pepperio's place as the leading website content management solution for partners and end users alike."

Mediasurface believes that the burgeoning success of Pepperio in Australia will represent similar patterns of take-up already seen in the UK.
