S1 Enterprise, a division of Norcross, Ga.-based S1, introduced a social networking and community site for its customer base.

S1red (your Resource for Enterprise Development) is designed to allow S1 Enterprise customers and product developers, experts and business unit leaders to exchange insights, solve problems and share ideas. The S1red customer-facing site delivers developer tools and guides, product documentation, platforms for conversation and other content.

S1red was conceived and created by the developers and engineers of S1 solutions—not a marketing organization—to provide clients with a direct line of contact to the individuals behind the technology. Once registered and logged-in, customers can access the latest news and information about S1 Enterprise products, its people, and business units, as well as review product-oriented articles and documentation. They can also access software development kits (SDKs) and instructions on how to build value-added extensions onto their S1 software.

They will also be able to interact with each other and members of the S1 team through forum discussions and blogs written by members of the community. The existing S1 Enterprise Product Advisory Council and Customer Advisory Board will play a key role in S1red, helping to drive product roadmaps as well as generate topics for discussion via forum threads and blog posts/comments. Other features of the site will be "How Tos", downloads and moderated forums.
