Buffalo, NY IT Firm Launches Social Media-Friendly, Website Builder That Allows Easy Website Updates for Small to Medium-Sized Businesses.

Buffalo, NY, April 15, 2011 --( COMAND Solutions, the Buffalo, NY based, IT firm, (Web: has released a "light" version of their webCOMAND Content Management System (CMS). Called webpageCOMAND, this new product is a site-builder and CMS combined. It allows small and medium-sized businesses to easily maintain and modify their site with no programming knowledge.

COMAND Solutions builds the site for a client and subsequently, the webpageCOMAND user can then modify and edit the site themselves and then immediately post the updated content to the Web.

What‟s more, the user's site can link to their social media accounts on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp, YouTube and more. An interactive Google map and news and events RSS feed is included.

The full-featured CMS product (webCOMAND), has been running many high-end sites for years, and works well for COMAND Solutions' larger corporate clients.

According to Mitch Bechtel, CEO of COMAND Solutions, the firm wanted to introduce an equally efficient and versatile--but more economical--version for small to medium-sized businesses.

"We see many websites out there that are difficult and / or expensive to update. Now, not only do we offer a way to do this quickly and easily, clients can also change many other internal and visual aspects of their site with ease, through a secure control panel. We include training and host the solution on high-end, redundant servers which ensures that they are always online and enjoy fast page loads."

"Because it's so easy to build a search engine / social media-friendly site with this product, we plan to offer a rebrandable and resellable version of the product soon. This way, community organizations and small newspapers-for example-can not only get an inexpensive and feature-rich, editable site, they can also offer individual websites for their members-or advertisers.

This will have all the same powerful marketing features as their own site. This new option could generate new revenue streams and enable them to take advantage of the Internet-instead of suffer from not being on it."

According to Mr. Bechtel, webpageCOMAND is ideal for firms that interact online with their clients and that are well-postured for social media user interaction.

Bars, nightclubs, restaurants, TV / radio stations, newspapers, clubs and membership organizations are but a few of the types of users that Mr. Bechtel says could not only benefit from the product through capturing new members, but that can also better service current customers / members by offering more frequent content updates.

Mr. Bechtel noted that the majority of their portfolio is made up of larger corporate clients, but now, with webpageCOMAND, they plan to reach out to the many small to medium-sized firms that typify the business demographic of Buffalo, Western New York, and the area known as the Niagara Frontier-which includes Toronto and the Niagara Falls region.

Mr. Bechtel confirmed that, as part of this outreach, COMAND Solutions wants to give back to the community. He wants to assist minority, female-owned and bilingual businesses that don‟t have access to this level of web and social media marketing, by offering a series of free workshops and networking events focused on helping these business owners better understand how to use the Internet to their advantage.

These events would also include information on how to coordinate their online marketing to mesh seamlessly with their offline marketing efforts, regardless of which web solutions they might be using.

Mr. Bechtel touched on how he hopes this-and other products that COMAND Solutions offers-can help in even a small way, to revive the local economy.

"We live in an area that historically has used its geographical position to its advantage to create a favorable business climate. Now, through Information Technology, we can better enable all members of the business community-regardless of size or background-to leverage the many advantages this region enjoys to reinvigorate the Niagara Frontier‟s livelihood and once again make this an ideal destination for commerce."

COMAND Solutions is a web design and development firm based in the Historic Allentown District of Buffalo, New York, founded in 2005.
