Qontext Named KMWorld "Trend-Setting Product" for 2011

Leading Industry Publication Acknowledges Qontext for Its Contextual Collaboration Platform

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2011) - Qontext Inc., a leading business social collaboration platform and Gartner's 2011 "Cool Vendor" pick, today announced that it has been selected as a KMWorld's Trend Setting Product of 2011.

The "Trend-Setting Product" awards began in 2003. This year, more than 800 products were assessed by the judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves (sometimes even competitive ones), line-of-business managers, and users.

Qontext social-enables any business application, by quickly and seamlessly adding activity feeds, embedded collaboration tools, follow-record, content pinning and single-sign-on with a seamless user interface. With Qontext, users can collaborate with colleagues, partners, vendors, or customers inside the business applications they already use (e.g., CRM, ERP, MRM, etc.) and pin those conversations to the relevant business processes and objects for easy recall and powerful information management.

"As one of this year's 'Trend-Setting Products,' Qontext demonstrates clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve their customers' collaboration requirements," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-chief.

"We're honored that KMWorld selected Qontext as trend setting product for 2011," said Samir Ghosh, VP Business Development & Strategy of Qontext. "We find that most users prefer our integrated approach rather than adding additional application destinations to their busy lives. Qontext integrates with existing applications, including legacy apps so users are not locked into any particular application. Not only does this integration provide convenience for the user, but it provides powerful knowledge management for the organization."

Qontext includes a comprehensive suite of social collaboration tools such as Threaded Discussions, File and true Document Management with versioning and Microsoft Office® integration, Shared Bookmarks, Blogging, Rich Text Wikis, Photo Sharing and Video Streaming, Polls, Quizzes, and Surveys.
