Planned launch of revolutionary new modeling venture postponed indefinitely due to Egyptian Government's response to political turmoil.
Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) February 03, 2011 - The recent political unrest in Cairo that is spreading throughout Egypt has dramatically impacted an Orland business this past week. SoftRock, a 300+ employee software and website development firm has had the launch of its newest venture postponed indefinitely.
The company desigend a Facebook modeling application that will revolutionize the way models are discovered that was originally planned to launch on January 27, 2011. Unfortunately, one of Softrock's key technical development offices in Alexandria, a few hours northeast of Cairo, has been unreachable since the Egyptian Government disabled all internet access in and out of the country. Overseas resources in India and Egypt were allocated to this effort and without their support and the exchange of technical information, SoftRock has been left at a standstill throughout the duration of this potential revolution.
Softrock employees continue to work diligently on the application, however the new software applications expected to revolutionize the modeling industry have been stalled until further notice by Egypt's political turbulence.
