PC Magazine Selects SurveySolutions for the Web For Editor's Choice Award

SurveySolutions Wins Editors' Choice Award in PC Magazine's Review of Six Web Survey Packages

BRAINTREE, MA (February 8, 2000) - PC Magazine, the most widely circulated computer magazine in the world, chose Perseus Development's SurveySolutions for the Web as its Editors' Choice in their recent review of Web-based survey products. The article, which appears in the February 8, 2000 issue of PC Magazine, reviewed six of the most well known Web survey titles and chose SurveySolutions as the best all-around package.

The article, "What Are They Thinking", began with a discussion of the importance, advantages, and applications of Web surveys and then reviewed the results of their extensive product testing. Each title was evaluated by how well it performed in the following areas: Installation and setup; Help, tutorials, and tips; Forms; Survey building; Data collection; File management; Deployment; Analysis; Reporting; Ease of Use; and Overall.

"Our Editors' Choice, Perseus SurveySolutions for the Web 2.0 ($229), has an exceptionally fine balance between ease of use and more advanced features, in part the result of a well-designed user interface," wrote Nelson King, the author of the article and a regular contributor to PC Magazine.

The SurveySolutions interface mirrors that of Microsoft Office programs, which most computer users have already worked with. The familiar environment coupled with the product's advanced surveying capabilities sets SurveySolutions apart from other Web survey software.

"[SurveySolutions] has a modern user interface, good Web features, excellent graphics, and better-than-average reporting. In short, this is a terrific value, the best in the roundup," King said.

Of the six software titles reviewed, SurveySolutions is the only one that is widely available through distribution. SurveySolutions is available from retail outlets, catalogs and web stores such as Microwarehouse, MicroCenter,, Programmer's Paradise and Tech Data.

"From the very beginning we have tried to offer a powerful product that is easy to use and priced so that every business can afford it," said Richard Nadler, president of Perseus Development. "We released the first version of SurveySolutions for the Web over two years ago, when the Web survey market was in its infancy. It is rewarding to watch the market reach the mass appeal we envisioned. Being selected as the PC Magazine Editors' Choice is a great accomplishment. We're very proud of this award."
