JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the quickly emerging need for associations and other organizations to deploy social networking tools for their members or constituents, tech startup Engageon LLC officially released its first installation of the Engageon Association Builder (EAB). The first launch was developed for the National Lipid Association (NLA) which can be found at www.lipid.org. Typically, most organizations have a homepage for distributing news and enrolling members or visitors. The EAB software brings an entirely new level of "Web 2.0" interactivity to individuals who can then collaborate and communicate their interests into a broader community of thought.
With the release of the first EAB installation, the NLA and its community of 3500 interdisciplinary medical specialists achieved the first critical milestone in the quest to deploy a medical workspace on the Internet tailored to the needs of cholesterol experts worldwide. "The goals set out by the NLA and Engageon were to develop a cost-effective way to empower members in an online community where opinion is facilitated as part of the decision-making process and policies of leadership," says Vera Bittner, MD, president of the NLA.
Ash Lulla, CEO of Engageon, says, "We achieved this goal in response to an emerging strategic need for organizations to connect with their membership. We are very pleased to launch this first effort with the NLA." Regarding next steps, Lulla says, "We are now working to build several additional medical communities and our intent is that EAB will bring a new and transparent level of exchange among scientific communities and their interests".
