Cannes, France – 15 October 2018.

During the Content Innovation Awards held in Cannes yesterday night, ZAPPWARE won The UX Award for its commercial deployment for WIND Hellas in Greece.

Patrick Vos, CEO of Zappware explains: “Telecom operators want to stay relevant towards their end-users with their entertainment value propositions. With Zappware, our mission is to provide them with the right solutions to turn their viewers into more loyal consumers spending more time and money with them.

It has been a significant effort to design, develop, test and validate the right user interface, combining linear and OTT in a perfect symbiosis. The NeXX 4.0 solution-suite includes the visible part, that is the multiscreen user interface and the part that is under the hood: our back-office with operator tools. An important tool is the NeXX 4.0 marketing console, enabling marketeers and content teams to manage the user interface to bring relevant personalized content and up-sell triggers.

Great that not only the telecom operators are excited to source the solution, also their end-users love the solution.

For Zappware, winning the User Experience Award is really a fantastic recognition from the industry for our end-user focus.”

“We launched WIND VISION before the summer this year and got great end-user feedback so far. We were the first integrating Netflix with a state-of-the-art multiscreen video solution. Android TV and the Zappware cloud back-office running on Amazon AWS have been accelerating factors in terms of platforms used. The key differentiating factor however, was Zappware’s user interface. It is great to be part of this success story in winning The User Experience Award with them”, said Hermann Riedl, Chief Strategy & Digital Transformation Officer of WIND Hellas.
