Portland, OR, — May 3, 2013 — Janrain, the leading provider of user management solutions for the social web, and Twobo Technologies, a leading innovator of secure social media solutions, today announced that the two have entered into an agreement allowing Twobo Technologies to resell Janrain’s portfolio of social identity management software and services. The partnership represents an important step in Janrain’s continued global expansion. For Twobo Technologies, the partnership is a strategic addition to the existing network of specialty technology providers that it has assembled to help European organizations overcome the challenges posed by mobile, cloud, social, and big data.
On this point, Travis Spencer, CEO of Twobo Technologies, says, “Organizations see the potential of social networks, but the continued introduction of new ones, their varying popularity, and the different means of integrating with them is making it difficult for organizations to tap into the full power they present. Leveraging Janrain’s products, we are able to help our customers quickly and easily overcome these difficulties.” Jacob Ideskog, vice president of Twobo Technologies adds, “The simplicity and speed at which organizations can integrate social into their websites and apps using the Janrain service is what our customers are looking for as they seek to securely implement social logon, publishing, and profile data storage. Using the Janrain User Management Platform (JUMP), we can now provide those with ease.”
On the continued global expansion of Janrain and the important role that Twobo Technologies and other partners play, Larry Drebes, CEO of Janrain commented, “Janrain has been successful serving the global market by focusing on helping our clients more efficiently acquire new customers, learn about and ultimately better engage with them. As such, we recognize the value our technology and service partners bring to our joint clients. I am thrilled to announce this partnership with such a well-respected company.” Russell Loarridge, managing director, Europe for Janrain, says of the new partnership with Twobo Technologies, “Twobo is recognized as an expert in enabling customers to leverage the power of personal identity and cloud technologies to spur business success. We look forward to working closely with the team there as our first authorized reseller in the Nordic Region.”
