Perseus Announces SurveySolutions Beta Version of Enterprise

The Complete Solution for Web Surveys Now Includes Support for Server-side Databases

BRAINTREE, MA (May 17, 1999) - Perseus Development Corporation announces the release of the beta version of SurveySolutions Enterprise. SurveySolutions Enterprise extends support to server-side SQL databases from Perseus' market-leading web and e-mail survey product, SurveySolutions for the Web.

The SurveySolutions product line now allows users to quickly create web surveys and forms, post them to the Internet or their company's intranet, automatically create and populate database tables on their workstation or a server-side database, and then analyze, report and present the results.

"Our customers can now deploy SurveySolutions throughout the company, consolidate the results in their existing corporate database, and then use their existing tools to view and manage the information. SurveySolutions is increasingly being used as a means to implement dynamic web forms to capture information from web-site visitors. These survey forms now automatically create and populate database tables within the company's existing database infrastructure. This is exactly the solution many of our larger customers have been asking for," according to Scott Washburn, SurveySolutions Enterprise Product Marketing Manager.

SurveySolutions Enterprise supports all major SQL database environments including Oracle, Sybase, Informix, DB2, MySQL and SQLServer. SurveySolutions Enterprise is licensed on a server basis and includes the programs needed to create and populate the server-side database tables as well as to create survey forms and analyze the results.

"We've made the process of creating and populating database tables on the server completely transparent to the user, providing enormous flexibility. from an IT perspective, centralizing the survey data means improved control of information and the ability to optimize its value to the organization," according to Jeffrey Henning, Vice President of Product Development.

SurveySolutions Enterprise is 100% compatible with SurveySolutions for the Web v2.0. Users of SurveySolutions for the Web v2.0 simply select the Enterprise option from within the Web Collection Wizard to trigger the creation and population of the server-side database.

SurveySolutions Enterprise is the latest addition to the Perseus SurveySolutions' family of web and e-mail survey products. Also included in the SurveySolutions family is SurveySolutions for the Web, the all-in-one solution for web and e-mail surveying. Both are available from the Perseus web site at and through major catalogs, resellers and retailers. SurveySolutions for the Web has a suggested list price of $229. Typical applications include customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, web site feedback, product-concept testing, course evaluations and the creation of web-collection forms. SurveySolutions for the Web is also the first survey software to be Microsoft Office compatible.

The Perseus product family runs on personal computers operating with Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT. Surveys created with Perseus products run on all server platforms and are compatible with all browsers. All products require a minimum of 4MB of RAM and 7MB of hard disk space.
