DRAPER, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- NextPage today announced that its award-winning, flagship product, NextPage Document Retention, was named a finalist in the Best New Product or Service in Computer Software category for The 2007 American Business Awards. More than 2,000 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in over 40 categories.

The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace. Winners will be announced at the 2007 awards dinner and presentations in New York City's Marriott Marquis Hotel on Monday, June 11. More than 800 executives from across the U.S. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be videocast on the Internet and broadcast on radio.

"Being named a finalist in The American Business Awards is an important achievement," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed the nominee is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."
