(The Hosting News) – In the crowded arena of web development and consulting, the most successful service providers often utilize their own pre-built software platforms and frameworks when building social websites for their customers. This competitive advantage makes it difficult for smaller design consultants and hosting providers to attract customers that want their own online communities, as they often have to build them from scratch or use non-optimal open source alternatives.
Webligo, a Los Angeles-based social software publisher, has announced a new reseller program that lets these developers and consultants build their customers’ social networks using the SocialEngine platform. The program enables resellers to utilize the SocialEngine source code and re-brand it before utilizing it for their clients’ projects, making them more competitive with larger providers that have their own proprietary platforms.
Hosting providers will also benefit from the program. With the demand for custom, branded social communities on the rise, providers can now offer hosting accounts with social networks pre-installed.
