The Silicon Valley Employers Forum Implements Business Surveys with SecureSheet

Downingtown, PA, May 16, 2008 – SecureSheet™ Technologies, LLC, a leading provider of multi-user online spreadsheet and web database solutions, today announced that The Silicon Valley Employers Forum (SVEF) has selected and implemented the SecureSheet solution to gather corporate benefit data for its members. SVEF selected SecureSheet in order to provide secure real-time web data collection in a simple and secure environment.

“SVEF’s annual surveys are very large and ask for very specific and detailed information,” says Stirling Somers, Executive Director for SVEF. Before SecureSheet, we would send out separate spreadsheets to our 28 member organizations and then summarize the results manually. “SecureSheet enables us to take our existing survey spreadsheets, and convert them into one shared secure online survey so that our customers only see the data they are authorized to. The members are able to update their results online, and we are able to have all the data aggregated in one place.”

“We are pleased SVEF chose SecureSheet to help with their survey processes,” adds Joe Holland, Co- Founder of SecureSheet. “It is more involved than a traditional survey where you just send out questions and get anonymous responses. They need to be able to custom tailor each member’s view of their slice of the survey to incorporate not only the question, but also include the member’s prior year data for each question to benchmark against. With SecureSheet, they can combine the questions with the data to give their members all the information they need to respond appropriately.”
