Altrincham, UK, 6 Feb 2009

Interact Intranet, an out-of-the-box intranet solution developed by Odyssey Interactive Ltd, has been nominated for Intranet Journal's Product of the Year Award for 2009. Placed in the Intranet Design Software category, Interact Intranet secured the nomination due to its easy to use, intuitive interface, feature rich business applications, collaborative tools and its extensive features.

Intranet Journal has a tradition of recognizing and honouring the best IT products through its Product of the Year Awards. For the winners, these annual awards are a mark of distinction and symbol of achievement in a crowded, highly competitive market.

Odyssey Interactive Ltd, a leading intranet software provider since 1996, recently released Interact Version 4.0 which has been developed to take advantage of the latest technologies as used by websites like Facebook, MySpace and Amazon. Built entirely in .NET, Interact 4.0 has been two years in development and is the latest version of Odyssey’s popular Interact platform. The standard system is a fully accessible ‘AA’ compliant intranet, exceeding the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines for web accessibility.

Commenting on the nomination, Nigel Danson Managing Director at Odyssey Interactive Ltd, said:

“We are delighted to have been nominated for this award; it is an honour to be recognised by readers of Intranet Journal and our customers for providing a powerful and efficient intranet solution. We have invested a significant amount of time and effort in developing an easy to use, feature rich, out of the box intranet solution and this nomination proves we have got it right. Organisations using Interact report measurable improvements in the way their operations run, which leads to costs savings and efficiency gains which are of particular importance during an economic downturn.“

Interact has been supporting businesses with world-class intranet software for well over a decade and the latest version of the software overcomes the age old problem of out of date and unmanageable content that exists on any intranet when more and more documents are added. At its heart is an intelligence store which learns as people use it, adapts and then re-profiles content. This unique and innovative adaptive learning capability sets Interact a significant step ahead of the competition.
