The finalization of the joint partnership follows a lengthy collaboration effort between the two companies, who have worked together for years, will focus on hosted solutions in conjunction with Pinnacle’s recently formed agreement with Gannett Co. Inc., to offer exclusive access to Gannett’s powerful private digital nationwide network.
Doug Schwartz, President/CEO of Luminosity and former/CEO of Innovation Technologies Worldwide said, “This is an ideal and logical partnership for both companies with each contributing a necessary discipline and product experience to form the ultimate solution for our customers and other partners that will support our hosted applications.” Likewise, Bill Mitchell, Pinnacle’s CEO and VP of Sales & Marketing remarks, “We go back a long way with Doug and understand how much development has gone into the Luminosity applications. Together we bring the industry a comprehensive and very powerful solution that will be impossible to equal. When you combine our advanced application solutions along with our relationship with Gannett, there’s simply nothing better or a more affordable solution available.”
Pinnacle 360 Networks, LLC will operate as a new operating division of Pinnacle Communications Corporation, with a dedicated focus on providing a series of all-new proprietary hosted products and services initially for The Lodging and Hospitality Industry. The applications will be hosted on Gannett’s network which is one of the most renowned private digital networks in the world.
