Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2011
Geoffiti's mobile content management and smart phone products have been selected as an Official Honoree in the 15th Annual Webby Awards. Hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring mobile and web excellence.
Created by Geoffiti Founder Ali Reza Kohani, the application is specifically designed to meet the needs of business districts, tourism areas and non-profit associations. Honored in the Associations category, Geoffiti's mobile app features marketing and management solutions that connect organizations to their constituents, stakeholders and customers.
Geoffiti's apps utilize the latest iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows capabilities to enhance communication and put the most relevant information directly in people's hands. Users can click on a location to view shopping, special events, nearby dining and available parking. Direct two-way communication with the organization allows submission of user photo messages and responses from the organization directly to the user's phone.
"The Webby Awards honors outstanding work that is setting the standards for the Internet," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "Geoffiti's Official Honoree selection is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators."
“I am deeply honored that Geoffiti has been recognized by the Webby Awards for our use of mobile technology," Kohani said, "and I'm grateful to the Geoffiti team for their hard work building an app that really enhances the community."
The product line includes a business process management system custom designed for associations that centralizes data management and provides mobile solutions for printed guides, "Shop Local" campaigns, e-government reporting and public kiosks. Its GPS-based content makes parking easier to find and integrates with electronic payment systems.
Geoffiti seeks to build community with our products," says Travis Brooks, Geoffiti Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "All of our projects bring together social media, arts, culture and e-government features to engage and enliven residential, tourism and business communities."
Geoffiti has been recognized by two other organizations in the past year. The California Downtown Association awarded its highest honor, the Crystal Eagle Award for Marketing. While the International Downtown Association recognized Geoffiti with its IDA Achievement Award.
