The Real Time Matrix Corp. and edgeio Announce a Strategic Partnership To Bring eCommerce to RSS
New York, NY ÂJanuary 30, 2007 Â The Real Time Matrix Corp., an innovator in real-time matching and re-broadcasting technology, and edgeio,
a leader in online listings, announce a partnership to bring eCommerce to RSS.
At the SIIA conference in New York, The Real Time Matrix Corp. unveiled â€œVirtual Personal Commerce,â€ a unique service that enables anyone to describe what they want and have matching item listings sent to them automatically as they appear on the Internet.
The service combines The Real Time Matrixâ€™s iJ.am web router with edgeioâ€™s edgedirect platform to match and deliver listings from over 1000 Web commerce sites, including Amazon, eBay, cafepress and more.
â€œItâ€™s like having a personal buyer sitting on the Web,â€ says Jeff Whitehead, CEO, The Real Time Matrix Corp. â€œVirtual Personal Commerce is radical since I simply describe what I want once, and relevant listings find me as they appear on the net. And they find me wherever I want; cell phone, browser, RSS reader, or instant messenger.â€
â€œBy partnering with Real Time Matrix, edgeio can extend the reach of any listing to an always-on, consumer channel,â€ says Keith Tiere, CEO, edgeio. â€œTogether, we close the gap between seller and buyer by getting relevant listings to anyone the instant they hit the Web.â€
The service, scheduled for Q1 release, offers listings through the iJ.am website as well as web widgets placed on any web page. The iJ.am website enables anyone to create personally relevant channels of live web content from the millions of articles published daily to the Internet. It is available at http://iJ.am.
