Greenbelt, MD (PRWEB) December 9, 2008
Interactive Mobile @dvertising (iM@), developer of geo-intelligent mobile destination guides for tourists and business travelers, was selected as the travel industry's most innovative technology application at the recently-concluded PhoCusWright Conference. The iM@ product is powered by Acuity Mobile's EMAP platform, which delivers Spot Relevance® - the ability to deliver the right content to the right person, at the right time and location.
"We are pleased to see our strategic partner recognized at such an important industry event," said Alan Sultan, President of Acuity Mobile.
"We evaluated several mobile technology providers, and found Acuity's platform to be the perfect fit for our vision of providing travelers with immediate access to destination-specific information," said Kerry J. Cannon, Jr., CEO of iM@.
The iM@ product is a geo-intelligent mobile content management platform providing travelers with on-demand access to destination-specific information on accommodations, transportation and entertainment. Through a simple, downloadable mobile phone application, iM@'s platform connects travelers with customized offers and information based on the time, location and preferences of each user.
"The travel research and planning process has become almost entirely electronic," said Alan Sultan, President of Acuity Mobile. "iM@'s intelligent, data-driven mobile solution is setting the standard for how travelers and service providers connect with each other."
iM@ was selected as one of six "Top Innovators" by real-time audience voting at PhoCusWright's Travel Innovation Summit on November 17. These companies then presented their businesses to a second audience on Center Stage at The PhoCusWright Conference, where iM@ was selected "Best in Show" by a panel of leading representatives from different areas of the travel industry (analysts, pundits, media and bloggers).
"PhoCusWright is without a doubt the most significant annual event in travel technology" said Kerry J. Cannon, Jr., CEO of iM@. "To earn the Top Innovator award as a newer company is a tremendous validation of our business model, and has further enhanced our credibility among travel suppliers, potential partners, and the venture community."
