Auros - The Immediacy Platinum Partner Friday 30 May 2008 PDF Print Immediacy today announced that Auros, a strategic Immediacy implementation partner since 2003 with 75+ successful Immediacy Web Content Management System (WCMS) implementations to their credit, is the first partner to be accredited at Platinum level. This status, the pinnacle of the Immediacy partner programme, confirms that a partner has excelled in the field of Immediacy WCMS implementation, achieving the highest levels of technology competence, repeatedly delivering demonstrable Return On Investment to Immediacy clients and maintaining a focused commitment across all Immediacy product lines. In 2003, Auros went out to market to identify a CMS product that could provide a solid foundation for their client projects, which typically see Auros delivering public facing websites, transactional sites, corporate Intranets and Extranets for large corporate and public sector organisations. After a lengthy process, Auros identified Immediacy as the preferential product. This market research continues with Auros performing a full review of the market on an annual basis to ensure that they continue to offer clients the “best fit” product in all spheres of the market. In 2005, having already established a considerable track record in delivering Immediacy projects, Auros was the first partner to be accredited with Gold status, both working with Immediacy to help shape the evolving partner accreditation programme and setting the standard in terms of attainment. The announcement today that Auros has been awarded Platinum Partner status further reinforces an extremely well proven partnership between the two companies. Auros’ relationship with Immediacy is based around a strategic partnership which allows clients to increase the benefits delivered by their web projects through a combination of Immediacy’s world class content management software, and Auros’ consultancy expertise, high quality visual design and customisation capability. Auros stands out from the crowd not just for creative distinction and technical excellence, but also for depth of experience within its outstanding team. Evidenced by zero staff attrition in the past 3 years and fantastic client feedback, this key attribute was recently further reinforced when Auros was short listed by Computer Weekly for “Best Places to Work in IT 2008”. Matt Goode, Immediacy Marketing Director commented: “Immediacy Platinum Partner status was conceived to recognise the very highest level of achievement within our partner community and particularly singles out partners who have significant depth of experience in implementing and supporting the Immediacy product set. This Platinum Accreditation recognises Auros’ commitment across all product lines and the substantial volume of highly successful Immediacy projects that they have delivered.” To date Auros has implemented over 75 Immediacy sites, delivering to more than 20 countries in over 25 languages. These include a Corporate Intranet for Virgin Megastores (now the Zavvi Entertainment Group), the Police Information Net for Scotland; a Scottish Police wide Extranet, nine multi-lingual websites for the global building materials giant Knauf, the Scott Wilson Plc corporate website and country specific websites and a fully transactional site for GWE Business West, the regional Business Link organisation. Auros is also experienced at inheriting Immediacy projects mid lifecycle, including a flash driven site for Transform Medical and various local government websites. As well as endorsing the complete Immediacy WCMS product set, Auros has completed extensive integration with a number of 3rd party systems including finance, CRM and ERP. As an Accredited Immediacy Training Centre, Auros delivers a significant proportion of Immediacy client training both in the UK, Europe and the USA. With dedicated, permanent training resources educating clients on the Immediacy products, Auros is able to offer both the standard Immediacy training modules and tailored knowledge transfer based on extensive practical implementation experience to ensure that individual learning needs are addressed. Chloe Neath, Auros Marketing Manager comments: “Being accredited as a Immediacy Platinum Partner recognises the extensive Immediacy track record developed by the Auros team and our commitment as a company to the Immediacy product set. We are delighted that Auros continues to set the standard in the WCMS implementation marketplace.” About Auros Limited Founded in 2001, Auros has achieved significant success during the company’s 7 year history.
