Perseus Releases CRM-Branded Survey Portal

SurveySolutions Enterprise Portal Provides a Solution for Adding Web Survey Results to Intranets and Portals

BRAINTREE, MA (June 20, 2001) - Perseus Development Corporation announced today the release of SurveySolutions Enterprise Portal for integration with CRM applications using Oracle, SQLServer, DB2 and other SQL databases. The SurveySolutions Enterprise Portal is a web-portal component allowing organizations to give their employees access to survey results as they happen. It is the newest module for SurveySolutions Enterprise.

As an integral component of a corporate portal, SurveySolutions Enterprise provides users with the ability to view, filter, sort and analyze survey results from their browser. Browser access requires no plug-ins or desktop software, making it available to anyone with appropriate security clearance and a browser. "As a branded solution, SurveySolutions Enterprise is an ideal component to add to existing corporate portals. Its open architecture makes it easy to integrate with existing portals, intranets and legacy applications, allowing companies to leverage existing investments," said Rich Nadler, president of Perseus.

"The SurveySolutions Enterprise Portal helps integrate the use of SurveySolutions Enterprise throughout the organization, seamlessly tying together CRM, HR and marketing surveys," said Jeffrey Henning, chief technology officer of Perseus. "Our thousands of SurveySolutions users have been eager to extend the reach of the web-survey results they collect throughout the organization." With the Enterprise Portal, organizations can selectively give groups of employees access to the latest feedback from customers and prospects, helping organizations to react more quickly to the changing needs of their marketplaces. The portal supports multiple configurations, allowing you to grow as your survey needs increase; for example, individual configurations can be created for Human Resources, Sales, Customer Service and IT. Each configuration can access an entirely different database platform and unique SQL database or share the same physical environment.

With over 200 installations SurveySolutions Enterprise is the established industry leader. Used by MSN, IBM, Intel, Pitney Bowes, Shell, MetLife, The NBA, Unilever, Capital One, Household, Bloomberg, Concert, and SWB, SurveySolutions Enterprise continues to set the standard for ease of use, power and flexibility.

Since 1997, the SurveySolutions product line has benefited from its unique and powerful word-processing survey design process.

At an entry price of under $20,000, the SurveySolutions Enterprise system drops the cost per response to a few pennies. The base system ships with all server software, two survey design clients, and licensing for Palm-based, e-mail based, paper and web-based surveying.

All Perseus SurveySolutions products offer deep compatibility with Microsoft Office applications. The survey-design environment supports Microsoft Word (.doc) formats, allowing users to import surveys created in Word for easy questionnaire setup. Survey results can be exported to native Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access formats, and - new with this release - table slides can be exported to Microsoft PowerPoint. Microsoft FrontPage can also be used for advanced web formatting.

Review copies are available to members of the press by contacting Martha Popoloski, Public Relations Manager, at email: or Telephone: 781-848-8100 x223.
