Press Release

September 12, 2001

OpenAir was reconfirmed today by ASPnews as a Top 20 Global ASP. Each month ASPnews evaluates nearly 2,000 companies in the ASPnews Directory to determine which ones they deem "the bellwethers of the evolving industry" and "the best of the best."

The companies are selected based on several factors. Sheer size is just one parameter, which is weighted along with more qualitative assessments, such as respect among peers and talent to innovate within the ASP model as defined by ASPnews.

This marks the fifth consecutive month that OpenAir has been on this exclusive list, making it one of a handful of ASPs that have been on the list every month since its inception in April, 2001.
