Kudos Receives IBM StoreProvenTM Certification

LONDON (16th October 2001) - Kudos Development Group, provider of Kudos(tm) software for interactive terminals and kiosks, today announced that Kudos has achieved certification by IBM as a StoreProven solution. IBM StoreProven certification allows Kudos Development to assure its customers that Kudos software operates optimally on IBM in-store systems.

Multi-channel retailers can now shorten their search for kiosk management applications by selecting Kudos, a solution that has met strict IBM compatibility guidelines. As a StoreProven certified member, Kudos Development joins IBM's worldwide network of business partners who supply solutions to retailers in over 100 countries and on more than 1.4 million installed IBM point-of-sale systems.

"Kudos delivers significant results for both customer experience and the profitable operation of kiosk networks. In fact, Kudos is an excellent example of a kiosk management solution that combines a high level of scalability and flexibility", said Marco Vergani, Manager, IBM Retail Store Solutions - EMEA.

StoreProven certification requires a lengthy process of testing and analysis to ensure that an IBM business partner's products are compatible with IBM kiosk hardware. IBM partner products are subjected to a series of tests on features, functionality, performance measurements, and assessments of third party peripherals, and system management.

"We are proud to be recognised by IBM as a StoreProven product," said Thor Ibsen, President and CEO of Kudos Development. "Companies can purchase Kudos software with certainty that they'll reap benefits-for themselves as well as their customers-from deploying an IBM solution."

As a StoreProven solution, Kudos will be linked directly to IBM product pages and various IBM solution databases. This means that retailers looking for information on IBM retail products will be directed to a list of StoreProven solution providers including Kudos.
