MAYNARD, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2015) - KAON INTERACTIVE -- Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of interactive 3D product marketing and sales applications, today announced the immediate availability of its Kaon 7.0 Application Delivery Network (ADN) platform with new built-in features to its real-time interactive 3D product experiences, resulting in faster and more intuitive interactions every time a customer encounters an interactive product demonstration. The company announced that it has also hit a record milestone of one million customer 3D product views on mobile devices.

The latest release uses a breakthrough algorithm for rendering 3D product models that can accelerate frame rates up to 3x faster across every device (iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle, Website, laptop, desktop, and touch screen appliances), improving the user interaction experience.

This allows companies to concisely communicate their value and competitive differentiation at every stage of the buyers' journey, by helping them engage prospects earlier, train sales/channel teams faster, shorten sales cycles and increase win rates by 33%.

"From management of the interactive application, to getting it into the right people's hands, the Kaon Application Delivery Network is a true game changer," said Mark Tarantelli, global director of sales enablement tools, IT business at Schneider Electric.
