Bridgeline’s New SaaS Product, iAPPS Pro, Drives Mid-Market Demand

BURLINGTON, Mass., Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ:BLIN) announced today that three companies have recently selected iAPPS to power their websites. The three engagements, which center on the iAPPS Pro product line, represent more than $330,000 in SaaS licenses and services:

  • A leading manufacturing company will use iAPPS to redesign their website.
  • A real estate firm will use iAPPS Marketier for Marketing Automation campaigns.
  • A B2B environmental services company will use iAPPS to power its eCommerce effort.

“We launched iAPPS Pro in June knowing the market needed a product that allowed companies to quickly launch marketing automation campaigns, websites and webstores,” Ari Kahn, CEO of Bridgeline, said. “It’s exciting to see it take off so quickly – the demand for this kind of solution is clearly there.”

Built on the award-winning iAPPS Platform, the iAPPS Pro product line combines marketing automation, web content management and eCommerce capabilities with a set of highly flexible modules and common functionality. The end result is a unique solution that brings much needed efficiencies and savings to more nimble companies.

“Increasingly, our easily deployable and highly customizable iAPPS Pro product suite is demonstrating to be a game-changer for the historically underserved mid-market segment,” Kahn said. “No longer does this large segment need to choose between off-the-shelf offerings from large providers, requiring huge up-front investments and limited or expensive customization, or small, open source technologies that lack basic features. Today, with iAPPS Pro, these companies benefit from a rich feature stack without substantial up-front investments, enabling them to deploy quickly and recognize rapid return on investment. As a result, Bridgeline is quickly capturing market share in the mid-market and we are encouraged with this progress.”
