Product of the Year From New Hampshire High Technology…

BEDFORD, NH–Seamless access for Internet users through social media and apps was the hottest topic at the 2013 NH High Tech Council Product of the Year (POY) competition on Tuesday, Nov 12, as Single Digits of Manchester took top honors.

Single Digits’ Open Network Exchange is the hub connecting users to a network, database service providers and app creators to large networks of users, and property owners to new revenue streams from their network. Through the interface, network owners can peruse the menu of options and easily “flip the switch” to turn on new services in their network. These services include advertising partners to drive revenue, rewards programs to drive loyalty, or social media partners to drive ease of 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 allocate and distribute revenue appropriately.

At the 8th annual POY event, over 200 people, including Governor Maggie Hassan, were on hand as the Council honored the top four companies competing for Product of the Year with Judges Awards. Those four finalists were selected by the judges from a larger pool of candidates in October. The four previewed their products during a reception before the evening event, and then made seven-minute presentations as part of their effort to encourage the audience to vote for their product. The popular vote and previous judging by a panel of business and technology experts were equally weighed, and Single Digits took top honors for 2013. The three other 2013 finalists and Judges’ Award winners were BurstPoint Networks, Merrimack; Granite State Manufacturing, Manchester; and Labsphere, North Sutton.

“This is certainly one of our proudest moments,” said Stephen Singlar, founder and president of Single Digits. “Our roots are in New Hampshire, most of our employees are from the state, 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.”

Single Digits earned the prestigious NH High Tech Council Product of the Year crystal trophy, designed by Pepi Herrmann. The Single Digits name will be added to the trophy, and the trophy and an exhibit of the winning product will be on display and the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport for one year.

Major sponsors of the 2013 POY reception were Berry Dunn; Cook, Little, Rosenblatt, and Manson PLLC; Cross Insurance; Dyn; FairPoint Communications; Hanover Insurance; Nanocomp; and Public Service of New Hampshire.

Gaming & Leisure Awards Single Digits The Platinum Award

LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Sep 30, 2013) – The thought leaders at Single Digits are at it again. Single Digits was named the winner of the Platinum Award in the 2013 Gaming & Leisure Gaming and Hospitality Awards.

The award is the highest honor bestowed by the advisory board of technology executives at Gaming & Leisure. It is given to the company that displays Innovation (original thinking in solving business problems), Transformation (dramatically changing the technology landscape), and Partnership (understanding clients’ problems and creates solutions for today and for tomorrow).

Single Digits’ president Stephen Singlar accepted the award after presenting to a packed room of hospitality and gaming technology executives on the major trends and shifts in networking.

“We are honored and thrilled to win this award. The Gaming & Leisure board of advisors are visionaries who shape the industry, so for them to identify the uniqueness of our approach is particularly humbling,” said Singlar.

“Our Wi-Fi authentication strategy has resonated particularly well in the gaming industry. CIO’s value the scale and flexibility it brings to their operation, as well as the additional revenue stream it provides. This acknowledgement from Gaming & Leisure will allow us to connect with other members of the gaming and hospitality community we’ve not yet met. As you might expect, given the ‘partnership’ aspect of the Platinum award recognition, these future connections and relationships are something we value tremendously.”

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 like JiWire 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.

The implication for property owners is enormous. By bringing these applications into their network, guests can authenticate using their preferred application, while property owners share in the revenue associated with log-in’s, downloads, and advertisement clicks while online.
