INOC chose Topaz to create visibility for its services in established and developing markets.

“Despite these difficult economic times, Topaz is finding that there are technology companies in specific regions and technology segments that continue to flourish and see our approach to PR and social media relations as a strategic part of effort to deliver their story and build their communities,” said Paula Slotkin, Topaz principal partner. “Our technology practice groups help us to better support all of Topaz clients, including companies like Stefanini Solutions and INOC that are breaking new ground in their markets.”

“In today’s economy, PR is the most powerful, cost-effective tool for supporting brand, creating visibility and communicating with many different audiences,” said Tony Sapienza, Topaz principal partner. “We are pleased to add Stefanini and INOC to the Topaz family of clients.”

In 2008 Topaz established a number of new technology practice areas, focusing on the experience, capabilities and contacts of its staff of PR professionals in the Information Technology, Industrial Technology, New Media/Marketing, Wireless and Telecommunications and Social Media, Marketing Services and Media Relations sectors.
