Symon Design Studio software has won a 2006 Product of the Year award from TMC's Customer Interaction Solutions Magazine. Design Studio is a software module with a wide variety of features that allows users to create and publish messages, video and real-time data sending the content for display on plasmas, LCDs, televisions and the desktop. The software becomes even more important as companies migrate from printed banners, reports and bulletins to real-time digital signage that keeps employees and customers informed, entertained and moved to action. Design Studio is used in many industries including corporate communications, retail digital signage, contact centers and supply chain management.
"We are honored to receive this award that highlights industry and customer recognition of the versatility and power of our Design Studio software," said Charles Ansley, president and CEO of Symon
Communications. "Design Studio and other Symon products continue to improve productivity and drive additional profits for many companies and their customers in many diverse markets fulfilling the digital communication needs for the enterprise."
The TMC judges bestow their Product of the Year award based on companies "that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements." The award was also based on companies who "have gone the extra mile to help improve both the customer experience and the ROI for the companies who use them."
