iAPPS Content Manager Powers Intranet for Leading Midwest Regional Bank

April 13, 2009

Enhances interdepartmental communications and drives operational efficiency

Woburn, MA April 13, 2009 - Bridgeline Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLSW), a developer of SaaS-based web application management software and award-winning interactive business technology solutions, announced today that a leading midwest regional bank has launched a new corporate intranet powered by iAPPS Content Manager. The iAPPS Product Suite is an innovative SaaS solution that unifies Content Management, Analytics, eCommerce, and eMarketing capabilities – enabling business users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web properties.

With 17 banking offices and 13 operating departments, improving intra-bank communications was a critical goal for deployment of this iAPPS Content Manager intranet. Through a secure, always accessible portal, employees now have easy access to standard intranet content such as an employee directory, executive communications, news, events, alerts, and forms, as well as corporate standards and training documentation. Using access controls built into iAPPS Content Manager, certain content can be restricted and made accessible only by employees within a particular department or branch, or with the correct security clearance.

The deployment of this intranet on iAPPS Content Manager was a major advance for Bridgeline’s customer over previous website management tools they had used. iAPPS Content Manager offers superior administrative efficiencies within a web application, enabling site owners the ability to publish a higher volume of content that is more up-to-date and less expensive to administrate. And with iAPPS serving as a single content repository and offering remote website authoring capabilities, the intranet easily ties together all central backend administration across the bank, from Human Resources to Information Technology. With iAPPS’ simple user interface and easy-to-use functionality, non-technical staff can manage and publish website changes that in other systems are often handled by expensive information technology personnel causing publishing bottlenecks and unwanted delays. Bridgeline developed websites, intranets and web applications on the iAPPS Product Suite help customers achieve targeted cost reductions, streamline identified operational efficiencies, enhance customer or employee communication, and increase revenue.
