Tendenci(R) User Community to Converge on Houston, October 2-3

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 8, 2008) - The more than 300 organizations that use Tendenci (www.tendenci.com) software to power their Web sites have one thing in common: each has a community they want to reach, excite and mobilize. The second annual Tendenci User Conference, scheduled October 2-3, 2008, will focus on how the Web and Tendenci can enable communities to connect, collaborate and strengthen relationships.

Tendenci software, developed and marketed by Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), powers the Web sites of hundreds of associations, corporations, government agencies, healthcare providers and nonprofits around the world. It is a powerful online tool that makes it easy for organizations to integrate social media functionality throughout their Web sites.

Tendenci offers an array of online tools, including an easy-to-use content management system, a photo album, automated e-newsletter creation, online calendar with event registration and much more. Tendenci also enables site users to post jobs and resumes, interact by posting moderated comments, complete online surveys and subscribe to be alerted to updates through the integrated Really Simple Syndication (RSS).

"People have an inherent need to connect and feel a part of something, but most organizations can do a better job of using their own Web sites to enable those connections," said Ed Schipul, founder and chief executive officer of Schipul - The Web Marketing Company. "We're looking forward to welcoming the community of Tendenci users, learning from them and helping them to get the most out of the software."

The 2008 Tendenci User Conference is free and will be held at the University of Houston Main Campus in the University Center Houston Room. Visit www.tendenci.com/conference/2008 for more information and to register.
