RentGrow Partners With Inkriti to Leverage Web 2.0 Technologies for Innovative, Customer-Facing Solutions

FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/10/07 -- Inkriti, a leading provider of Web 2.0 solutions for customer-centric e-business, today announced it has signed an agreement to collaborate on Web 2 .0 product enhancement initiatives with RentGrow, a Waltham, MA-based firm that provides resident screening solutions to multifamily rental properties.

RentGrow had been seeking engineering talent to increase bandwith and accelerate product development using Web 2.0 technologies. Its goals were to enhance customer experience and capitalize on the flexibility of its award-winning product, TotalScreen®. To fulfill these needs, the company searched for a vendor that could provide not only cost-effective product development services, but also like-minded Web 2.0 technology expertise.

After reviewing a number of vendors, RentGrow selected Inkriti for its expertise in building Web 2.0 enabled e-business solutions and its reputation for rapid, cost-effective delivery.

"We operate in a rapidly changing marketplace, so as we work to acquire new customers and also serve and retain our current customers, we need to consistently provide them with new product features that enhance the end-user experience and increase productivity," said Mike Lapsley, CEO of RentGrow. "We selected Inkriti for its expertise in Web 2.0 technologies, and for its global delivery model that facilitates product development utilizing Open Source, AJAX, and other Web 2.0 technologies, and enables them to be deployed in a rapid and cost effective manner."

The objective of this partnership will be to improve the overall experience of RentGrow's clients by extending online capabilities, creating more user-friendly interfaces and enabling faster inquiries. To accomplish this, Inkriti and RentGrow will combine JAVA, Open Source, and Web 2.0 technologies in unique and innovative ways to enhance the TotalScreen experience.

Under its global delivery model, Inkriti will employ its talented pool of developers in both the U.S. and abroad. Its U.S. team will work directly with the offshore development team to oversee the technical aspects of the project in coordination with RentGrow. Leveraging the combination of onsite talent and some of the top offshore Web 2.0 developers, Inkriti effectively extends the capabilities of RentGrow's internal product engineering team.

"Expertise in Web 2.0 technologies such as AJAX and Flex is very scarce these days," said Vinod Pabba, CEO of Inkriti. "Our investments in building an offshore talent pool over the past three years have really helped us in implementing solutions similar to RentGrow and we are eager to use this opportunity to help RentGrow achieve its goals. Most importantly, we are excited to be working with RentGrow and look forward to being a strategic partner in their rapid growth."
