Want to gauge what really matters to your customers, your employees and key decision makers? Now anyone can easily create instant surveys for any Web site, without custom programming!
SAN ANTONIO, TX -- GlobalSCAPE(R) Inc. (OTCBB:GSCP), a leading supplier of content and file management software, and Perseus Development Corporation, an industry leader in Web-based survey research, today announced an agreement to deliver an easy-to-use, affordable Web survey solution for small to medium-sized businesses.
Users will now be able to create custom surveys to capture basic research information on their own.
Under the terms of the agreement, GlobalSCAPE has exclusive rights to distribute Perseus' SurveySolutions for the Web, a survey application that enables users to easily create professional surveys and post them to their Web sites. Responses are automatically collected, results analyzed and effective presentations instantly produced.
GlobalSCAPE intends to brand and market its own version of the product, named Web Survey(R), with an expected release by early first quarter 2003. Perseus will continue to develop high-end Web survey software under its own name, including SurveySolutions for the Enterprise, targeting larger organizations.
"By integrating Perseus' technologies, GlobalSCAPE will expand its current product line and better serve its customers by providing tools that enable them to maximize the value of their Web sites," said GlobalSCAPE President, Sandra Poole-Christal. "GlobalSCAPE's Web Survey will provide businesses with a cost-effective way to gauge customer satisfaction, employee feedback and Web site performance without the need for costly and time consuming custom programming. This translates to knowledge that will give our customers a competitive advantage not previously available," said Poole-Christal.
"We are excited about this strategic partnership with GlobalSCAPE," said Jeffrey Henning, Chief Operating Officer of Perseus. "GlobalSCAPE's strong reputation among Web site managers, its existing customer base and powerful marketing engine make them a strong strategic partner. They have the ability to reach a large group of professionals and increase the value proposition for customers," said Henning.
