SAMSUNG Electronics Wins CIO Web Business 50/50 Award

SEOUL, Korea - July 13 , 1998 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has been named one of the top fifty Internet or intranet sites in the second annual CIO Web Business 50/50 Awards. This award program recognizes innovative Internet and intranet initiatives by organizations around the world.

The judging process involved a lengthy deliberation by a panel of CIO magazine editors, designers, and Web development experts who evaluated business value delivered by nominated sites. The judges specifically focused on integration of design, technical attributes of the site, contribution to the overall business and the success by which the blend of technology and design matched the needs of the site's target audience. "Fifty sites in each of the two categories emerged as standards of excellence worthy of emulation by the next generation of Web developers," says CIO Editorial Director Lew McCreary, who oversees the judging process for the program each year.

The Samsung Electronics site is designed to operate with the customer in mind. The site easily offers information on Samsung Electronics' products, technical data and service information.
Product information facilitates customers' purchase selection and use of any item in the Samsung lineup. Users may download various files including the contents of a user manual.

Web site visitors may send in e-mail messages to the company, which is able to respond to 99% of those messages within two days. A special page also provides answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions. (FAQ)

The user friendliness of the Samsung Electronics home page is reflected in the growing number of visitors to it. Average of 40,000 people visit the site a day.

CIO honors the one-hundred top pioneering sites…those that are setting the benchmarks for a constantly moving target. Complete coverage of the 1998 CIO Web Business 50/50 Awards was featured in the July 1st issue of CIO and at www.cio.com.
