Mountain View, CA, February 10, 2011 — Moxie Software today announced it has been named one of three Award finalists by the 2011 Edison Best New Product Awards™. The Edison Awards are known around the world for recognizing and honoring innovation and excellence in the development, marketing and launch of new products and services. Employee Spaces ™ by Moxie Software is a finalist in the Living, Working & Learning Environments – Employee Learning Systems category, one of twelve categories honored by the Edison Awards.
The distinguished awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America’s drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.
“This year’s Awards recognize a broad array of innovations including far-reaching products, services and technologies that impact daily life,” said Edison Awards Steering Committee chair Sarah Miller Caldicott, a great grandniece of Thomas Edison. “The Awards applaud the forward-thinking innovations for which Thomas Edison remains internationally admired. It’s exciting to see companies like Moxie Software continuing his legacy of challenging conventional thinking.”
“Moxie’s Employee Spaces™ leverages the best innovations in social networking and consumer technology to improve the way people work. It gives people the ability to connect, share and co-create knowledge and accelerate innovation within their organizations not possible just a few short years ago,” said Tom Kelly, CEO, Moxie Software. “We are honored to be a finalist in this prestigious awards program.”

In a comprehensive peer-review process, the nominees are judged on Marketplace Innovation, Marketplace Success, Technological Innovation, Market Structure Innovation, Societal Impact, and Design Innovation.
