SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/13 -- Over the last two weeks, hundreds of companies have joined Mazree (www.mazree.com) -- the social network built specifically for businesses. And the companies that have joined aren't just small businesses; companies such as Microsoft, Dell, and Staples are among the new companies with profiles on Mazree.

Intermountain Healthcare, the largest healthcare provider in the Intermountain West and the largest company in Utah, signed on as one of Mazree's first adopters. Since then Intermountain Healthcare has actively encouraged over 2,000 of its suppliers to also join the network. "We have already realized the benefits of having so many of our suppliers in a single network," said Joe Walsh, AVP of Procurement for Intermountain Healthcare. "In a single post we can communicate to our entire supply base -- something not possible without Mazree. It's also been easier for us to identify the sales reps in our area and stay up-to-date with all of our suppliers."

Mazree claims to be the first social network built for companies to connect and collaborate with other companies. According to Curtis McEntire, CEO and Founder of Mazree, "Mazree is designed specifically to improve business-to-business interactions. The days of exchanging business cards, tracking your suppliers or customers in a database, or sending out e-mail blasts will soon be gone. Mazree provides the electronic tools you need to manage your business relationships. I like to say that it is the first e-cosystem for business."

After a small launch at the end of last year, Mazree has grown quickly over the last few weeks. With over 18,000 pages views in the last month nearly 300 companies joined Mazree in the month of March. "The feedback from our suppliers has been extremely positive," explained Walsh. "They too need a platform to connect and communicate with us. We believe our suppliers are an important extension of our team and Mazree provides the network for us to more effectively collaborate and be more transparent with them. This has effectively changed the way we communicate for the better."
