SilkRoad Expands Silkware Platform

SilkRoad technology, Inc. ( is introducing on March 7 its new Silkware platform, which offers blogging, audio/video blogging (Silkclips), instant messaging, chat, and surveying and polling software. These features are offered together or separately in a subscription-based, software-as-a-service model. A single dashboard with one login and one password provides access to all the applications. The unification of the Silkware platform gives customers the ability to expand the number of services they use as their companies grow. Once a customer is using one application, adding additional licenses is a seamless process.

The Silkclips audio/video blogging tool will let users capture, publish, and play back audio and video clips, adding a new layer of functionality to their online correspondences. With Silkclips, users can capture and upload videos from videophone, PCs, or Macintosh computers. Individual bloggers also can add comments to their own videos, accept outside comments and trackbacks, publish videos and Webcasts to any blog, view videos in a Web page, or in SilkRoad's Silkplayer, and securely and privately share videos. Other products available on the Silkware platform include Silkmessenger, Silkblogs, Silksurveys, and Silkpolls.

SilkRoad, based in Winston-Salem, N.C., was founded by its chairman and CEO Andrew "Flip" Filipowski, who previously founded PLATINUM technologies and Divine, Inc. Silkroad also offers the Eprise family of products.
