Leading Financial Services Company selects Bridgeline’s iAPPS

BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLIN) announced today that one of the nation’s top financial services companies selected iAPPS to power its insurance portal.

“Though we serve hundreds of different customers across industries, our expertise in the financial services and insurance space really stands out,” Ari Kahn, CEO of Bridgeline, said. “This is the second major insurance portal project we’ve been awarded recently. Our experience with the necessary security rules and the industry’s unique user goals serves as a key differentiator in helping Bridgeline win with these customers.”

The agreement includes a three-year SaaS subscription to the full iAPPS Digital Marketing Suite and associated professional services, adding more than $500,000 to Bridgeline’s backlog. The project, which commenced immediately, will provide a custom online portal for the company’s disability insurance customers, offering a unique online presence for each customer to share information to employees and ultimately drive them through the enrollment process.

“What’s unique about our Digital Experience Management tool, iAPPS, is that it really simplifies the process for creating meaningful experiences,” Kahn said. “Whether it is complex, multi-portal frameworks like this or simple websites and web stores, iAPPS’ future-friendly architecture and flexibility is what we see the marketplace demanding.”
