iAPPS Selected by Global Real Estate Trade Association

Woburn, MA | October 03, 2011

Bridgeline Digital, Inc. developer of the award-winning iAPPS Web Experience Management (WEM) platform and interactive technology solutions, today announced that, in response to recent accelerated growth, a major international real estate trade association has selected iAPPS to replace their internally developed Content Management System (CMS).  After comparing a variety of competitive options, the association’s IT and Executive groups selected the iAPPS Product Suite as the best solution for their Web Experience Management requirements.

Bridgeline's market-leading iAPPS Product Suite is the only preeminent WEM platform available as either a SaaS or perpetual license solution that unifies Content Management, e-Commerce, e-Marketing, and analytics capabilities - enabling users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web properties. The iAPPS Product Suite was recently selected as a finalist for two 2011 CODiE Awards, and iAPPS Content Manager is the 2010 CODiE Award Winner for Best Content Management Solution, globally. In addition, the editors of KM World Magazine selected iAPPS as a Trend Setting Product for both 2010 and 2011. Important as these factors were, the association’s ultimate decision to use iAPPS to support a WEM strategy commensurate to their company’s growth objectives exceeded them.

Primary to their selection of iAPPS was its unification across the product suite, as well as its ease-of-use. In comparison to their existing CMS – which was difficult to use and correspondingly suffered from a low user adoption rate - iAPPS’ single dashboard interface and modern, clean and intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) was considered far superior. With iAPPS, the association sees a future of high user buy-in, streamlined and sensible functionality that will delight users, and an efficient, comprehensive online experience - for both internal users and external visitors.

As the iAPPS project has progressed, Bridgeline Digital’s engagement with the association has been hailed as superior, conscientious and highly responsive. From internal and external research of user habits, best and worst practices, and company needs, Bridgeline has been active at every level of the discovery process and intrinsic to developing the overall design and user experience.
