ELMHURST, Ill. – September 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — BRANDCONTROL.NET(TM), a Marketing Resource Management Systems developer and maker of patent pending software BigCabinet 3.0(TM), today announced that it has received a second round of venture capital funding from Midwest Investment Ventures (MIV).
“This latest infusion of venture capital will help us refine our business strategy in two areas,” says Chris Parker, president of BRANDCONTROL.NET. “First, we’ll be expanding our operations and adding some staff positions to reflect our commitment to long-term relationships. We’re developing a crack team of Application Support Specialists, who will combine the roles of sales specialist, account manager, and tech support. With flexible pricing models, online account registration, and a new customer setup Wizard, we’re not spending a lot of time in initial selling mode. Our Application Support Specialists will be able to focus on customer care and training.”
Second, BRANDCONTROL.NET will be positioning BigCabinet as a tool developers can use in creating their own interfaces. Because BigCabinet makes integrating Web sites so painless, it can be leveraged as a foundation for developers who regularly create custom interfaces. “It’s a bold statement, but true–we want to be the online operating system for dynamic publishing. A solution provider using BigCabinet does need to reinvent the wheel each time an interface is designed–that part is done, and done well.” Jim Grandos of MIV adds, “We think BRANDCONTROL.NET’s new positioning will yield exciting results.”
