InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition Receives the Jolt Product Excellence Award

SAN FRANCISCO, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- At its annual celebration of the year's most significant contributions to the software development community, Software Development Magazine honored Zero G and its InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition as the winner of the 2003 Jolt Product Excellence Award. Nominated by judges and readers alike for its intuitive approach to multi-platform software installation and deployment, Zero G's InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition was a finalist for the Productivity Award in the utility category and walked away with the highest honor, the coveted Jolt Award. Also competing in the category were InstallShield, Compuware, eHelp and UrbanCode.

"This award is further proof that developers prefer InstallAnywhere's more powerful, more flexible and intuitive method of creating fully functional, customized installers," said Eric N. Shapiro, CEO and co-founder of Zero G. "That's why the majority of the multi-platform enterprise software market uses InstallAnywhere to deploy its software."

InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition is a multi-platform installation and deployment solution specifically designed to meet the needs of global software producers. It handles all installation details automatically, reducing development and deployment times, increasing productivity, and accelerating time-to-market.

The Jolt Product Excellence Award adds to Zero G's long list of industry accolades. Zero G products have received the Editors' and Readers' Choice Awards for Best Installer from Java Developer's Journal, Best Utility Award from Java World, and Writers' Choice Award from Java Report.

"Every year, the prestigious Jolt Award honors the best and brightest technologies and innovators in the software community -- a community dedicated to building faster, easier, and more efficient applications," said Alexandra Weber Morales, editor-in-chief of Software Development Magazine. "Recognized as 2002's best software utility, InstallAnywhere Enterprise Edition was the installer of choice for many of the other Jolt nominees."
