Spotlight On NW Creative: ProtoShare

Disclaimer: The following company provides me swanky office space in return for creative services.
Portland’s Site9 was recently recognized for its ProtoShare product.
O’Reilly Media’s Inside RIA, named ProtoShare a “Top 50 Most Usable RIA” (Rich Internet Application).
According to the company’s Blog:

We are quite proud of our selection, especially considering that ProtoShare was not designed in Flash, Flex, or Silverlight, but rather uses HTML, Javascript, and CSS to create interactive prototypes with real-time collaboration.

Interactive prototypes with real-time collaboration? Yes. Let’s hear the firm’s elevator pitch from Co-founder and VP Business Development, Blake Johnson.

ProtoShare helps Web designers manage the site development process, build out specs and share the whole wireframing process with clients and team members via a Web-based interface. In other words, ProtoShare up front saves the design team from suffering headaches and lost revenue later.
PhotoShare’s enterprise solution, which allows for five licensed users and 20 active projects is $89/month.
