Santa Rosa, Calif. – September 18, 2012 – ATIV Software was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Education & Reference App category for its conference app EventPilot in The 10th Annual American Business Awards last night.

“We are excited to have received this award as recognition of the hard work we put into developing the best conference app in the market,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “With EventPilot, attendees can instantly view thousands of sessions, personalize the app, and network with other attendees offline without relying on Internet access. EventPilot’s unique PowerPoint and scientific abstract viewer enables event planners to save money and reduce waste by going completely paperless. EventPilot is making a difference.”

More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. The category Education & Reference App is a new category in the program. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.
