(PRWEB) September 19, 2005 -- Globalization Partners International (GPI), a
provider of website, software, and documentation globalization services
announced today the launch of GlobalWidgets.com, a widget-based informational
website for global business professionals who need access to a variety of
information, ranging from news to weather, to converters all in one
Martin Spethman, Managing Partner with Globalization Partners International, said, "GPI initially designed and developed www.GlobalWidgets.com as an internal project management tool to help schedule global conference calls, track global events and holidays, and make common conversions."
"We wanted something web-based as opposed to OS-based, so it could be accessed from any where, at any time," said Mariano Drzazga, GPIís Global IT Manager. "The recent widget phenomenon has shown that users are embracing the use of widgets in order to place specific information they need daily at their fingertips. GlobalWidgets is entirely web-based and anyone with a browser and Internet access can set up their own GlobalWidgets site."
When a user visits GlobalWidgets.com for the first time, there is a default collection of global business information widgets displayed. Without registering or downloading anything, the user is free to add, move, and remove any of the global business widgets available, making GlobalWidgets.com an ideal launch pad for any company doing business from coast to coast or around the world. Currently the GlobalWidgets.com has launched with:
* World news on business, entertainment, science and technology, and more, definable by country
* Measurement converters
* World-Time clocks
* Calendars showing holidays defined by country
* Current weather information from any major city in the world
* Userís favorite links, for any frequently visited websites
GPI will continue to add widgets based on user feedback. To begin customizing a free personal global business management widget, visit www.GlobalWidgets.com.
