SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Blist (, the best way to share data and work together on the Web, today announced the release of real-time collaboration. Consumers can now see instant updates to shared lists and businesses can work on team projects, sales leads, and building customer relationships in real-time.

Real-time collaboration brings the experience of working together with lists and data to the next level:

-- Group Editing Keeps Everyone in Sync -- As multiple people work on the same Blist, changes are reflected to every team member as they occur. Also, Blist clearly indicates when a row is being edited, supporting team cooperation.

-- Team Member Presence and Connections -- When working together, team members know who is present in a Blist. Now individuals can make connections with people in their organization -- people who they may have never met before -- because of a shared project.

-- Email Notifications -- With a click of a link, team members are instantly emailed about blist updates. There are no files to share and no emails to send -- Blist makes notifications a natural step in team workflow.

"Real-time collaboration is a key component of Blist's strategy to become the best offering for collaboration around lists and data," said Kevin Merritt, founder and CEO of Blist. "Because Blist is online and centralized, team members are freed from sharing out-of-date Excel files to get things done. Now with the addition of real-time collaboration, consumers and businesses have the benefit of not only a centralized solution, but also a collaborative and real-time work experience."
