iAPPS Content Manager, the 2010 Winner, Selected as 2011 Finalist for Best Content Management Solution Globally

iAPPS Commerce Selected as 2011 Finalist for Best Electronic Commerce Solution Globally

WOBURN, Mass., April 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (Nasdaq:BLIN), developer of the award-winning iAPPS web experience management Product Suite and interactive technology solutions, announced today that two of the products within the iAPPS Product Suite have been selected as finalists for the prestigious CODiE Awards. iAPPS Content Manager, which won in 2010 for Best Content Management Solution globally, has again been selected in 2011 as a finalist in the category. Additionally, iAPPS Commerce has been selected as a finalist for Best Electronic Commerce Solution. Being selected as a finalist is a unique and important distinction, as the CODiEs are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Established by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiEs recognize excellence and achievement in the business software, digital content, and education technology industries. CODiE Award winners will be announced in May.

"For more than 25 years, the CODiE Awards have shone a spotlight on the companies and products that are revolutionizing software, education technology and digital content," said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. "What sets this program apart from all others is that the winners are selected by those who really know their stuff – whether they're tech executives, industry analysts, or journalists. SIIA recruits leading software, digital content and education people to put each nominated product through an intensive review process. Bridgeline Digital and all companies that survive the process and become a finalist can say unequivocally that they are producing one of the finest, most innovative products on the market."

"Having both iAPPS Commerce and iAPPS Content Manager recognized as CODiE Award finalists – with 2010 Winner iAPPS Content Manager recognized for the second year in a row - is a tribute to our outstanding product development team," says Thomas Massie, Bridgeline's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We began developing iAPPS four years ago and believed an integrated suite of complimentary web software products would be an extremely powerful force in our industry. We now have hundreds of iAPPS licenses sold to some of the best brand named companies in the world and we are very excited with the success iAPPS is having. The CODiE finalist nominations signify that we have not only developed a world-class product suite, but that each of the products within the suite are industry leaders on their own."

The iAPPS Product Suite is the market leading web experience management platform and the only complete solution, available both as a SaaS or perpetual license, that deeply unifies Web Content Management, eCommerce, eMarketing, and Web Analytics capabilities into the heart of websites, online stores, intranets, extranets or portals - enabling users to swiftly enhance and optimize the value of their web assets. From a single platform, iAPPS offers marketers, etailers, and website managers everything they need to create, manage and maintain engaging user experiences, drive persuasive content, and lift conversions.

The 2010 CODiE Award Winning iAPPS Content Manager delivers critical Search Engine Optimization (SEO) capabilities that are missing from many vendor products available today.

With each product within the iAPPS Product Suite sharing a common, easy-to-use interface, site administrators and content authors are empowered to spend their time driving their web-based business goals, not learning how to use different systems.

About the CODiE™ Awards

Since then, the CODiE Awards program has carried out the same purpose - to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement.
