Single Digits' Open Network Exchange Wins Again

BEDFORD, NH--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - For the second time in as many months, Single Digits' Open Network Exchange found itself in the spotlight.

The Open Network Exchange won the 2013 New Hampshire High Tech Council Product of the Year (POY) Award before a packed room of more than 200 business, community, and political leaders. Following a speech by Governor Maggie Hassan, who stressed the importance of technological innovation to the state's economy, Single Digits' founder and president Stephen Singlar presented on the need for -- and benefits of -- the Open Network Exchange. Following Singlar's presentation, along with those of the three other finalists, the audience voted. After the popular vote and the votes of an expert panel were equally weighed, Single Digits took top honors.

This award comes close on the heels of another honor. In late September, the advisory board of technology executives at Gaming & Leisure named the Open Network Exchange the winner of their Platinum Award. Their highest honor, the Platinum Award is given to the company that displays Innovation, Transformation, and Partnership.

"This is certainly one of our proudest moments," said Singlar. "Our roots are in New Hampshire and to get recognition in our own home state to help promote the growth of our company and our product -- we couldn't be any happier."

 "The Open Network Exchange has clearly struck a nerve. End users are frustrated at the difficulty of accessing Wi-Fi, while property owners are exasperated with their dilemma of needing to invest in their network while also giving away Wi-Fi. Our solution provides users easy access while creating revenue streams for property owners by authenticating users onto the property's network through partners who make money on those authentications."

Single Digits' Open Network Exchange is the hub that connects users to a network, database service providers and app creators to large networks of users, and property owners to new revenue streams. Through the easily configured interface, network owners can peruse a menu of options and "flip the switch" to activate new services in their network. These services include advertising partners to drive revenue, rewards programs to drive loyalty, or social media partners to drive authentication and revenue options. Single Digits operates the network as a neutral party to authenticate users, store credentials, set up policy and assign bandwidth, determine pricing and payment, track clicks, and distribute revenue appropriately.
