Ektron 2009 All-Star Award-Winning Web Sites Announced

TBG Wins Best Association Site for Work on Association of Zoos & Aquariums

September 10, 2009, Baltimore, MD

TBG (The Berndt Group), a Baltimore, Maryland-based full service interactive agency, announced that it received a 2009 Ektron All-Star Award for "Best Association Site," for work on the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) website. Ektron selected Award recipients for sixteen different industry and regional categories.

Ektron's All-Star Awards seek to identify the most innovative and effective use of Ektron's Web content management (WCM) platform, Ektron CMS400.NET, by both customers and partners when building their websites. Nominees were judged on the development and design of their site, their ability to use CMS400.NET functionally to solve critical business issues and the tangible results that they have achieved from their implementation.

"The Ektron All-Stars are a great representation of all the different types of web sites that can be built using Ektron's Web content management platform," stated Bill Rogers, chief executive officer at Ektron. "Each of the 2009 winners has created a website that delivers exceptional business value to their target audiences, whether that is their customer base, their employees or members of their external communities."

Ektron will recognize the Award recipients at Synergy, Ektron CMS400.NET's Worldwide Customer Conference focused on networking and professional development in the content management systems sector. TBG is in contention to win Ektron's 2009 "Site of the Year Award," which Ektron will reveal and feature at Synergy.

John Berndt, President and CEO commented, "We are excited to receive an All-Star Award nomination - the AZA site is a great site in terms of aesthetics, but also content management and Ektron best practices. We've completed a number of successful Ektron implementations to date, and we look forward to upcoming projects. The Berndt Group is gaining a growing reputation as a national leader in CMS consulting and implementation best practices - the AZA site is solid example of our work and what we can offer to clients."

TBG is a long-time Ektron Premier Partner, and was recognized as the Ektron partner of the month in July for its dedication to developing outstanding websites and creatively extending Ektron technology to meet clients' business goals. Ektron's products and services are also listed on TBG's GSA schedule.
