Perseus Announces SurveySolutions Enterprise

A Complete Solution for Web Surveys Including Support for Server-side Databases

BRAINTREE, MA (September 8, 1999) - Perseus Development Corporation announced the immediate release of SurveySolutions Enterprise for users of Oracle, SQLServer and MySQL databases. SurveySolutions Enterprise extends support to server-side ODBC-compliant databases to Perseus' market leading web and e-mail survey product, SurveySolutions for the Web.

The addition of Enterprise to the SurveySolutions product line will allow users to quickly create surveys and web 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 analyze, report and present the results.

"Our customers can now deploy SurveySolutions throughout the company and consolidate the results in their existing corporate database. They can use their existing tools to view and manage the information", said Scott Washburn, product marketing manager. "SurveySolutions is being used more and more as a means to implement dynamic web forms in order to capture information from web site visitors. These survey forms will now automatically create and populate database tables within the company's technical environment. It's what many of our largest customers have been asking for."

SurveySolutions Enterprise supports all major ODBC-compliant database environments including Oracle, Sybase, Informix, and DB2 databases on both Unix and Linux servers and SQL Server on Microsoft's NT server. 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 totally transparent to the user providing enormous flexibility. From an IT perspective, centralizing the survey data means improved control of the information and the ability to optimize its value to the organization", said Jeffrey Henning, vice president of product development.

SurveySolutions Enterprise is 100% compatible with SurveySolutions for the Web v2.5, v3.0, and the soon to be introduced SurveySolutions Professional. Users of SurveySolutions for the Web v2.5, v3.0 and Professional can create survey forms within its easy to use word-processing environment and simply select the Enterprise option using the Web Collection Wizard to trigger the creation and population of the server-side database.

For additional information on SurveySolutions Enterprise visit SurveySolutions for the Web runs on personal computers operating with Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT. Surveys created with Perseus products run on all server platforms and are compatible with all browsers.
