New Web Site for Military Families built in 10 weeks
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE– April 3, 2009—Ann Arbor, MI: Social networking web sites are breaking new grounds in popularity and web technology on the internet. Logic Solutions, Inc., a leader in software development, web site implementation, and web applications, recently helped develop and launch a new, secure user community for MilesBetweenUs.org, a feature-rich online community that helps military families stay connected while separated by great distances.
The new site is unlike other leading social networks because it maintains the privacy of each family and allows them to share photos, videos and messages. Accounts also include an interactive message board and shared family calendar. As a non-profit organization, MilesBetweenUs.org includes no advertising and is supported entirely by corporate and private funding.
“Delivering the latest social networking technology is what people come to us for,” said Jimmy Hsiao, CEO for Logic Solutions. “Working with MilesBetweenUs.org, we were able to build a full-featured site in 10 weeks, from start to finish-and within budget. This is a good example of how well we know web 2.0 technology and can manage projects for optimal results.”
Although Logic has considerable experience with a number of development platforms including Java, .NET and PHP as well as databases such as MySQL, MS SQL Server and Oracle, Logic built MilesBetweenUs.org on the .NET framework with MS SQL Server using DotNetNuke’s content management system for its ease of use and speed to implementation.
Other client work in social networking includes Legatus (www.Legatus.org), a faith-based organization that brings Catholic business executives together online. The site keeps executives up-to-date on news and activities as well as connecting them through forums, news groups, member directory and a major event coordination module.
Designed by Logic for social networking power-users, urTurn Points Marketplace is a unique web application that lets users earn points for their online activity. urTurn offers rewards to users based on their interactions and connections with friends on social networks, such as Facebook. The more content and connections a user generates, the more urPoints they earn which can be redeemed for prizes or sold for cash on the urTurn Points Marketplace.
