Woburn, MA February 23, 2010 Bridgeline Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLSW), a developer of SaaS-based web application management software and award-winning interactive technology solutions, today announced that iAPPS Content Manager has been named a CODiE Award finalist in the category of Best Content Management Solution by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA). iAPPS Content Manager is Bridgeline's flagship web content management system within the iAPPS Product Suite, an innovative SaaS solution that deeply unifies Content Management, Analytics, eCommerce, and eMarketing capabilities – enabling users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web properties. The state-of-the art iAPPS architecture provides customers with the options of either a SaaS subscription deployment model or traditional perpetual licensing option.

Now in its 25th year, the CODiE Award for Best Content Management Solution recognizes the software technology solution or platform that best adds value to content accessed or distributed by the enterprise or the end-user. "Being recognized as a CODiE Award finalist is an industry honor and a validation of the iAPPS product vision that began over three years ago," says Thomas Massie, Bridgeline's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As a developer of mission critical interactive technology solutions to some of the best known companies in the United States, we have unparalleled insight into how customers interact with, adopt, and derive value from website and web application management software products. It was with that overarching goal of developing a completely integrated software solution that is both incredibly easy-to-use and capable of offering overwhelmingly powerful functionality to create, manage, and deliver content through interactive marketing and business operations channels that iAPPS was conceived."

iAPPS Content Manager offers marketers and business managers 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 other 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 to the right audience at the right time. 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.

"With iAPPS, we have developed something very unique in a crowded industry," says Massie. "iAPPS' ability to deliver significant value and a return on investment, whether you're developing a public facing website, an employee intranet, extranet, a line of business web application, or an eCommerce storefront, is second to none."
