Generic Software, Inc. named as Finalist in 2001 Midrange Technology SHOWCASE Product Excellence Award for Attention Key Menu.
NEW ORLEANS, May 13, 2001--Generic Software, Inc.'s Attention Key Menu software has been voted one of the top three products in the Menuing category in the 2001 Midrange Technology SHOWCASE Product
Excellence Awards (PEA) recognition program. The award recognizes products that demonstrate quality features, innovative design, and exceptional value. All products that are nominated and receive PEA
recognition are designed for use with the IBM iSeries (formerly AS/400) brand computers.
Selection of the top products was accomplished with an online voting process that eliminated all possibilities of
hanging chads or dimpled ballots. "We believe the opinions and judgments of the iSeries and AS/400 users are the best test of how a product performs," said David Uptmor, publisher of Midrange Technology
SHOWCASE. "When a company wins a Product Excellence Award, it shows that a very critical audience has responded in a positive fashion to a product that is needed and a service which that company delivers. A
Product Excellence Award says this company has made a lot of customers happy."
This year the PEA presentations were made in conjunction with a reception at the World Trade Center's Top of the Mart in New
Orleans. More than 250 vendor representatives were in attendance. Winners were selected in 45 categories that included hardware and software solutions for the well-known IBM midrange computer that has
enjoyed a noteworthy reputation in the small- to medium-sized business market for many years. The annual awards have been recognizing top information technology products in this niche since 1997.
A complete list of winners and finalists in each category can be viewed online at www.MidrangeComputing.com/showcase/awards
Midrange Technology SHOWCASE magazine, based in Carlsbad, California, is the leading product magazine in the IBM iSeries (AS/400) marketplace, with an audited circulation of
more than 45,000 subscribers. A special editorial section featuring the winners of the Product Excellence Awards will appear in the August 2001 issue.
