Netkey Recognized As Industry Leader Again; Wins Two Major Software Product Awards
Honored for Software Design Excellence and Innovation by Major Kiosk Industry Publication
BRANFORD, Conn. -- July 18, 2001 -- Kiosk Magazine (www.kiomag.com), a publication devoted to interactive technology solutions including kiosks, web terminals, and emerging self-service technologies, announced that it has honored Netkey, Inc. with two awards in its second annual competition. Netkey's Creator 5.0 software suite received top honors by earning the publication's Most Innovative Product Award, and the company's Netkey Manager product secured the Software Design Excellence Award.
Competing products must pass a rigorous set of criteria and the scrutiny of a panel of judges. Those products that make the final cut earn the recommendation of KIOSK Magazine for integration into any kiosk project.
"The Most Innovative Product award winner has created an application development tool so well refined that it blew the competition out of the water," stated James Van de Castle, Editor in Chief of Kiosk Magazine. "Creator 5.0 is easy to pick up and immediately begin designing great multimedia attractions."
The Netkey Creator 5.0 software suite is the next generation of the company's successful application authoring and design solution for Web-based self-service devices including kiosks and managed PCs. The software provides organizations such as retailers and banks with the software backbone for a multi-channel sales and marketing and inventory extension strategy. Netkey Creator, Netkey Creator Plus and Netkey Creator Studio are the main components comprising the suite.
"Manager is the most user-friendly kiosk management tool on the market," continued Van de Castle. "Simple graphic control buttons and self-explanatory navigation allow even the most novice user to become an experienced network adminstrator."
Netkey Manager is a comprehensive e-CRM server solution for Web kiosk network monitoring, reporting, analysis, and content management. It keeps kiosk networks up, running, and generating revenue 24/7 with a powerful yet user-friendly kiosk management interface.
"Netkey is proud of this award, but nothing can top seeing the software used to create actual results and solutions for our many clients," stated Alex Richardson, chief executive officer of Netkey. "It is always great to see the hard work of our programmers and product developers recognized by impartial industry experts."
Netkey has been validated as the market share and technology leader for kiosk software by industry analysts including Frost & Sullivan and Gomez Research. The company has won virtually all major industry honors, including two "Best of Show" awards from Kiosks.Org for software and client solutions. Netkey software is the backbone of some of the industry's largest Web self-service deployments for clients including Fidelity Investments, Borders, and Hong Kong PowerPhone.
