Bridgeline (news, site) won big at last year's CODiEs Awards and is now hitting big in the marketplace with a 189% rise in sales over last year.

A Good Experience

We followed Bridgeline's expansion and acquisition trail in 2010 that saw the company rewarded with highly positive growth. That has culminated in the company selling, in total, over 300 iAPPS licenses by the end of the last financial year, and it is expecting to hit 400 in the near future.

Nominated for this year's CODiEs as well, the company also recently picked up Interactive Media Awards for several sites created in iAPPS for its clients. iAPPS is a SaaS-based unified CMS, e-commerce, e-marketing and analytics platform; sales have been boosted by the introduction of a channel partner program and a growing reputation.

Always Looking Forward

Bridgeline has boosted the iAPPS feature set with improvements in the commerce and search elements. But with a constant eye on the future, the company engages customers with design and development services, while its lively blog discusses the latest in SEO, site design and best practices.

With features such as drag-and-drop design, inline editing, social and search features and admin-friendly features like redirecting from 404 errors and so on, it's not hard to see why iAPPS is doing well and receiving the awards it does. But, in the fast-moving world of web content, surely another upgrade isn't too far around the corner.
