ion interactive named a finalist in 2014 American Business Awards

12th annual Stevie® Awards will be presented on June 13 in Chicago and September 12 in San Francisco

BOCA RATON, FLA – May 8, 2014 – ion interactive was named a Finalist today in the New Product or Service of the Year - Software - Web Services Solution category in The 2014 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the program.

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others.  ion interactive is nominated in the New Product or Service of the Year category for Software – Web Services Solution.

Rather than deluging users with static content from white papers, blogs, and articles, ion interactive’s customers turn that content into useful and engaging experiences. White papers become participatory learning apps, pricing spreadsheets become interactive calculators, a blog post on best practices becomes a step-by-step self-assessment tool, and a solutions brief becomes an online configurator. The ion interactive marketing app platform is provided as software-as-a-service (SaaS) on the web. With a subscription, marketers receive access to a growing library of pre-fab marketing apps. Marketers can publish them as is by plugging in their own content. Or they can creatively extend and remix them to build their own original apps.

“Bringing marketing apps front and center has been an adrenaline-filled exciting journey for us,” said Justin Talerico, co-founder and CEO, ion interactive. “Being named a finalist is an excellent stepping stone in that journey and we are proud of our team and our offering.”

Finalists were chosen by more than 150 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May.  More than 150 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-22.  

“The final judges have a difficult task ahead of them, to rank the Finalists, because there are so many great nominations this year,” said Stevie Awards president and founder Michael Gallagher.
