Miller Systems helps supply-chain collaboration developer launch corporate site

Boston, MA and Marlborough, MA - April 23, 2001

Proficiency is a startup company focused on creating web-based engineering collaboration solutions, headquartered in Marlborough, MA. Proficiency recently hired Miller Systems to create a stealth mode web site to carry the company through the early stages of their growth. Miller Systems was able to develop a site that meets Proficiency's current needs while providing the flexibility to accomdate future additions.

"Miller Systems took the long view with us and focused on our success." said Michael Jannery, Vice President of Marketing for Proficiency. "In return we have a site that will help us grow rapidly when we are ready to unveil news, announcements, and products. Miller Systems has obviously worked with companies at our stage before and understands our needs now, as well as those 6, 12, and 18 and more months down the road. We're very pleased to have a site that is targeted at serving our current messaging and one that will be able to grow as our needs, and company, grow".

Proficiency's solutions will dramatically streamline the product development process in such key industries as automotive and aerospace. Their customers will benefit from significant cost savings and by getting product to market much more quickly. Proficiency is backed by Charles River Ventures and other leading VC firms. "We looked at who is investing in Proficiency as well as their market and focus," said Seth Miller, CEO of Miller Systems. "We know that Proficiency will need interactive development to support product launch and customer acquisition. We worked closely with Proficiency to find a solution that gets Proficiency what they need now and lets us help them plan for what they'll need in the future. Miller Systems is dedicated to helping technology companies grow. If we can better serve an early stage company by helping them meet their short-term as well as long-term needs, we all win." Miller Systems also works with later stage Charles River portfolio companies Pelago Networks, Brix Networks, and River Delta Networks.
