MAYNARD, MA – May 20, 2013 – Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of interactive 3D product marketing applications, today announced that the company has won an Award of Distinction in the 2013 Communicator Awards competition judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts. Kaon won the 2013 Award of Distinction in the “Integrated Campaign” category for its development of a mobile interactive App for leading global telecom/networking company Juniper Networks.
With over 6,000 entries received from across the U.S. and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring the creative excellence for communications professionals.
Kaon Interactive created an innovative mobile application that integrates interactive solution stories with information from the Juniper website as well as real-time social media feeds and sophisticated virtual 3D Product Model demonstrations. Global channel partners can now use these dynamic photo-realistic 3D Product Models that look and behave just like the physical products, to give product demonstrations tailored to every individual customer need at the specific prospect’s level of interest, providing a more personalized experience than ever before. On the road, in an airport, or at a remote meeting, every sales professional is now able to showcase and differentiate the company’s product and solution portfolio using only their iPads. Having a cutting edge sales tool available to the entire direct and indirect sales team gave Juniper a competitive advantage by genuinely exciting and engaging partners while making their solutions and products easier to communicate and sell.
