iAPPS Content Manager Wins 2010 CODiE Award for Best Content Management Solution

BURLINGTON, Mass., May 12, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLIN), a provider in cloud-based Web Content Management, eCommerce and Marketing Automation software, announced that iAPPS Content Manager has been selected as the 2010 CODiE Award winner in the category of Best Content Management Solution by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA). The CODiE Award for Best Content Management Solution recognizes the software technology platform that best adds value to content accessed or distributed by the enterprise or end-user. Now in its 25th year, CODiE winners were honored at a gala luncheon during the All About the Cloud conference in San Francisco on May 11, and were chosen from more than 450 products from over 200 companies worldwide.

iAPPS Content Manager is Bridgeline’s flagship web content management solution within the iAPPS Product Suite, an innovative solution that deeply unifies Content Management, eCommerce, eMarketing, and Web Analytics capabilities - enabling users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web properties. The state-of-the art iAPPS architecture uniquely provides customers with the option of either a SaaS subscription deployment model or traditional perpetual licensing option.

“Bridgeline is honored to win this prestigious award from the SIIA,” says Thomas Massie, Bridgeline Chief Executive Officer. “iAPPS has achieved a litany of impressive milestones over the past 12 months. We’ve exceeded internal metrics around licensing volume, implemented iAPPS within some of the best brands known in America, executed a full release of the deeply integrated iAPPS Commerce module, and expanded our partner reseller channel efforts. Winning the CODiE validates how special a product iAPPS truly is.”

iAPPS Content Manager offers organizations with industry leading features and functionality in a powerful, end-to-end, web content management solution. With its deep, native integration on the .NET-based iAPPS Framework, iAPPS Content Manager is able to deliver critical Search Engine Optimization (SEO) capabilities that competing web CMS products simply cannot offer. Furthermore, with iAPPS’ state-of-the-art user interface and integrated web analytics solution, iAPPS Analytics, non-technical business users are empowered to design and deliver targeted and persuasive content in real-time based on actual user interaction with a website. Available as a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solution or as a perpetual license, iAPPS Content Manager offers a flexible licensing model for those who want to spread costs over several years and who don’t want to own the responsibilities of maintaining and supporting the required backend infrastructure.

“The concept of the integrated iAPPS Product Suite was derived from our experience developing websites and applications over ten years on almost every content management system available,” says Brett Zucker, Bridgeline Chief Technology Officer. “We had the luxury of knowing the best and worst features available in the market, as well as a tacit understanding that no one solution integrated the core needs around web experience management. iAPPS was developed to be that best of breed platform, delivering real ROI for business managers and interactive marketers, and being super easy-to-use for website administrators. Winning the CODiE affirms our vision and success in realizing these goals.”
