Degasoft, Maker of Kudos Software, Announces
New Company Name, Web Site and Product Release
Kudos Development Group, formerly Degasoft, unveils Kudos version 6.1
and improved Web site
London (1st October 2001) - Degasoft, the company behind
high-performance Kudos(tm) software for interactive terminals and
kiosks, today announced a name change to Kudos Development Group along
with the launch of its improved Web site, www.kudosdevelopment.com. Also
being announced is the latest release of Kudos, version 6.1, a further
landmark for Kudos and its customers. The changes reflect the company's
strong product offering and aggressive business strategy.
The new Kudos version 6.1 is now available with several new and improved
features including enhanced browser security, greater flexibility in
application design, dynamic grouping of kiosks for targeted content
distribution, and better access to information on network activity.
Kudos 6.1 moves the scalable functionality of the previous version to a
new level, ensuring a robust product that is capable of managing
thousands of terminals.
"Kudos 6.1 gives customers significantly increased value," said Halldor
Sigurjonsson, VP of Product Development. "Kudos enables companies to
establish a wider customer-facing presence with a high performance
product that has unrivalled scalability and stability. We are ideally
placed to take this industry a major step forward."
The new name - Kudos Development Group - enables the company to leverage
its products, communications strategy and respected standing within the
kiosk software market. And in order to serve customers and partners
better, www.kudosdevelopment.com has undergone a complete overhaul. The
new site supports the company's new brand identity, which in turn
reflects recent corporate changes-from substantial growth and relocation
to London to the opening of its first North American office.
The enhanced and more substantial "support intranet" allows customers
and partners access to a range of tools including a defect tracking
system, FAQ and knowledge base, the latest software builds and patches,
user manuals, product specification information, and more.
"Our new name, Kudos Development Group, better reflects our business
goals and places more emphasis on our software and service offerings,"
said Thor Ibsen, CEO and President of Kudos Development Group. "With
much more than improved content and navigability, our new Web site
offers customers and partners an online support system. Combined with
the release of Kudos 6.1, these strategic advances underscore the fact
that we're now a major player in this arena."
