Kaon Interactive and GE Healthcare Take 1st Place at DxMA Global Marketing Summit

Recognized for Engaging, Interactive 3D Medical Device Demonstrations

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2015) - DxMA GLOBAL MARKETING SUMMIT -- Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of interactive 3D product marketing and sales applications, announced that the Diagnostic Marketing Association has presented them with a prestigious Dx Creative Communications first place award, for their creation of the 'GE Healthcare Molecular Imaging' application. The Dx Creative Communications Awards honor the "best of the best" in diagnostics advertising, marketing and promotional programming.

Developed by Kaon Interactive, the 'GE Healthcare Molecular Imaging' application is a disruptive sales and marketing tool that dramatically improves the effectiveness and efficiency of product demonstrations by taking interactivity to its truest potential. It accomplishes this by addressing audience questions interactively via engaging mobile devices, tablets, laptop, large touch screen interfaces and, shortly, on the web. These tools allow booth staff and sales representatives to communicate and differentiate the total value of GE's products to varied audiences in any type of setting, without the equipment being present. 

"We were looking for ways to maximize impact but bring less equipment to trade shows," said Chris Baumann, Advertising and Promotions Business Partner - Molecular Imaging and Computed Tomography at GE Healthcare. "With Kaon's interactive 3D product applications, our prospective customers were able to interact with 3D product demonstrations on large touch screens to learn about key features. We were now able to show clinical capabilities that couldn't have been possible if the real product was present. Users shared that they enjoyed the hands-on experience."

"We're thrilled that Kaon's work is being recognized for this prestigious award, as they've created a global marketing and sales enablement application for us that not only helped communicate and differentiate our products more effectively, but also provided a full ROI in just 3-months," said Kevin Boyle, Global Marketing Manager at GE Healthcare.

All the submitted entries were judged based on their marketing strategy, sales strategy and objective. The Dx Creative Communicator Awards is the only competition of its kind in the life sciences/diagnostics market.
