Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
Leading business solutions provider RDA Corporation is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for both the 2011 Microsoft Digital Marketing Partner of the Year Award and the 2011 Microsoft Search Partner of the Year Award.
The Microsoft Partner Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the past year. Awards were presented in multiple categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 3,000 entrants worldwide.
The Digital Marketing Partner of the Year award recognizes RDA Corporation as successfully developing innovative solutions that helped create engaging user experiences, cut costs, increased business agility, and delivered familiar authoring tools and processes for customers; and also have provided solutions that help customers develop a compelling web presence including social marketing, rich media and applications, search, digital marketing integration and analytics.
RDA helped Calphalon, a division of Newell Rubbermaid, redesign their website and integrate it with Cooking.com for a seamless user experience. The new site has launched with double the planned first year sales, reduced email inquiries by 700/month, reduced phone call inquiries to customer care representatives by 200/month, and increased website search hits.

The Search Partner of the Year award recognizes RDA Corporation for increasing a customer's revenue by creating engaging, search-driven experiences that have helped the customer monetize online assets, enhanced employee productivity, and saved costs.
RDA developed an application for a county school system that provides an online environment for curriculum writers and teachers to jointly develop, disseminate, and obtain feedback on course content. The application dramatically increases the accessibility of instruction information by moving from hard copy to an online format. It also allows for dynamic searching using FAST technology and the ability to store electronic media. Teachers are able to collaborate and rate content in a community environment that facilitates the identification and distribution of quality curriculum materials (lessons and resources) in a way not previously possible.
