Marqui makes a name with NBA’s Suns

Briefs | 02/07/2007 5:00 am EST

Vancouver blogging software firm Marqui Inc. has parlayed its west coast connections into a deal with the National Basketball Association’s Phoenix Suns, home of Victoria favourite son, Steve Nash. Marqui’s blog management product is now powering the team’s official blog and serving up exclusive content including commentary from players, trainers, commentators and dancers, as well as stats, game results, and other data. "Not only did we feel it necessary to involve different elements of the organization – players, commentators, et cetera – but we needed a product that would allow us to easily interact with the blog site and push out content," said the Suns’ VP of interactive services Jeramie McPeek in a release announcing the deal. "Marqui was chosen as it not only provided us with robust functionality, it also allowed us to quickly deploy the product so that our site was up and running before the start of the 2006-2007 season."
