YSI Inc. Launches Next Generation Website on iAPPS Platform

BURLINGTON, Mass., July 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLIN), The Digital Engagement Company™, announced today that YSI Inc., a leading provider of water monitoring solutions, launched its next generation, mobile-friendly website on the iAPPS Platform. YSI provides professionals with reliable instruments and systems for surface water, wastewater, aquaculture, laboratory and Life Sciences applications. YSI expects its new website to grow its USA based eCommerce business with the dynamic features iAPPS Commerce offers users, as well as serve as a valuable, easy-to-use resource for current and prospective customers.

YSI needed a new website that could better serve its online community and improve visitor engagement with their database of relevant content. To meet these goals, Bridgeline's award-winning design and development team delivered a website that is optimized for mobile devices through the use of responsive design, a coding methodology that triggers web content to automatically adjust to the screen size of the device a visitor is using to access a page.

Furthermore, by leveraging iAPPS Content Manager's pre-integrated enterprise search capabilities, YSI can intuitively index content and tag products to help site visitors easily find the information and products they are looking for. The innovative eCommerce features in iAPPS empower YSI's marketing team to easily manage their new online catalog, which includes products directly for sale and items that require visitors to request a quote.

"We are very excited about the launch of our new website," said Patrick Higgins, Digital Marketing Manager at YSI Inc. "The new design, coupled with the end-to-end eCommerce functionality, offers current and prospective customers an engaging, mobile-friendly web experience that will help grow our business and improve our overall presence online."
