The company submitted Skykit, its digital signage content management system

MINNEAPOLIS – Oct. 4, 2018 – Agosto Inc., a tier 1 Premier Google Cloud Partner and developer of Skykit, a born-in-the-cloud, Chrome-based digital signage content management system (CMS), announced it is a finalist for the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) 2018 Tekne Awards.

For the past two decades the Tekne Awards have recognized organizations that are leading-edge innovators in science and technology in Minnesota. The 2018 Tekne Awards ceremony on Nov. 29 will reveal winners among the finalists in 16 categories.

Agosto is one of three finalists in the Software – Small and Growing category. Agosto submitted Skykit, the first and only end-to-end Google-based digital signage solution, for consideration of the award.

“The simplicity of Skykit is a huge value to companies of all sizes,” said Irfan Khan, CEO at Agosto. “It’s as easy for an enterprise to install and use globally, as it is for a local pizza chain like Davanni’s. The market potential for Skykit is infinite, as is its scalability for the businesses that use it.”

Skykit lets users distribute content to any screen, anywhere in the world, using a powerful browser-based CMS built on the Google Cloud Platform. Users can control, collaborate, and share content to any number of displays from Google Drive and Apps. All you need is Skykit, a screen, a Chrome Player and your content. There is no maintenance and nothing to install, ever.

Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president and CEO of the Minnesota High Tech Association, said, “The Tekne Award finalists this year represent the ongoing strength of innovative Minnesota-based companies. They are pioneers in leading-edge science and technology that has impact around the globe.”
