Indianapolis, IN, March 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- iGoDigital, the market and technology leader in personalized product recommendations and guided selling tools, announces that five independent panels of judges have chosen iGoDigital to compete for the state’s top technology honors — the TechPoint Mira Awards presented by BKD CPAs & Advisors. iGoDigital is competing in the Information Technology Company category, with winners being announced at the Mira Awards Gala being held Saturday, May 12, at the JW Marriott Indianapolis.
The TechPoint Mira Awards recognize excellence and achievement of Indiana’s outstanding technology industry performers and contributors, and focuses attention on the broader issue of the important role technology plays in Indiana’s economy. iGoDigital was chosen to compete in the Information Technology Company category, which consists of companies that sell information technology products or services, develop hardware or software, network and systems integrators, or are part of MIS departments and vendors. The company was a nominee for the TechPoint Mira Awards in 2008 and a finalist in 2011.
"Narrowing down the field to finalists was particularly difficult for the Mira Award judges this year because we had nearly double the number of nominees in just about every category," said Jim Jay, president and CEO of TechPoint. "This is the largest class of nominees and finalists that we have had in the 13 years that TechPoint has been conducting the Mira Awards, and I think that says a great deal about the strength and resilience of Indiana's tech sector."
iGoDigital's personalized product recommendation software exposes customers to relevant and desirable products at multiple interaction points during the shopping process. The platform analyzes individual shopper behavior, the wisdom of the crowds, and individual product attributes to show the most relevant products, in real-time, to each shopper. Because each tool is powered by iGoDigital's Customer Intelligence Engine, retailers can leverage their investment across multiple personalization solutions.
“We are honored to be recognized by TechPoint as one of Indiana’s outstanding technology performers and contributors,” said Eric Tobias, president, iGoDigital. “We believe our inclusion as a finalist is recognition of iGoDigital as an innovator and further validates the market’s need for accurate, predictive and actionable real-time product recommendation tools that guide shoppers through a personalized multi-channel shopping experience.”
The 2012 winners will be announced at the Mira Awards Gala being held Saturday, May 12, at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. TechPoint will again honor past Mira Award winners and finalists attending the ceremony with a special “Winner’s Circle” VIP reception.
