NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TIE Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets:TTCS), a diverse technology holding company focused on proprietary smart logistics for Homeland Security, environmental and disaster remediation, telemetrics, and advanced IT solutions, today announced that its award-winning Whirlwind Media Services company has launched the new ecommerce store for OXO.com.

OXO, an award-winning consumer products company best known for its Good Grips line of household consumer products, worked with the Whirlwind Media Services team and their NYC design studio to develop their latest website. OXO's objective was to create a more compelling user experience through better site navigation; search engine optimized content, improved customer service features and an enhanced e-commerce platform. Further, OXO wanted their non-technical staff to have the ability to easily update the site. For more information please visit www.oxo.com .

"Working with OXO's Art Department, we were able to redesign and develop a fully functioning modern shopping cart for OXO," says Michael Burden, General Manager of Whirlwind Media Services. "The new site provides users with not only the ability to shop online but more importantly research each product line. The site provides OXO's customers with a variety of custom tools to find the product that best fits their needs. For those users who need it right away, the site's store finder feature provides instant access to hundreds of OXO distributors throughout the U.S. and abroad."

Graham Mew, TIE Technologies EVP added: "Over the last few months, Whirlwind has continued to rapidly expand the number of customers it is providing award winning services to, and has also completed the successful integration of Making Ideas Work into the Whirlwind family. Our New York City design studio has been substantially enhanced by this acquisition and is now supported by our new corporate headquarters established this fall in Nashville, TN. Whirlwind is poised for an exciting 2011."
