Enter The Dragon! Full-featured web surveys with conditional branching

Phoenix, AZ — June 12, 2001 — Recently, Mary Harrsch of the University of
Oregon needed to initiate a series of web surveys to assess the academic
programs at the College of Education. As the Network and Systems Manager,
she searched for an easy-to-use, cross-platform solution to build
sophisticated web surveys without investing hundreds of programming hours.

Enter the Dragon Web Surveys 6.0, a powerful, cross-platform, FileMaker
Pro-based web survey tool, which allows users to create, publish and
tabulate internet-based surveys with no web programming needed.

“The Dragon has everything I need to enable the non-technical person to
quickly build web surveys without IT intervention, ” said Harrsch. “With
several research facilities, departments and faculty survey requests, I can
manage multiple users and set up individual accounts to run from
workstations within minutes instead of hours or days. The Dragon is an
extremely useful product.”

The Dragon 6.0 now features conditional branching, multiple page surveys,
multiple-user configurations and administrative controls, including
individual user accounts, security and viewing preferences. Respondents can
be restricted with four levels of authentication, including email and IP
addresses, and results can be processed almost instantaneously with faster
processing and reporting time.

Additionally, the Dragon 6.0 employs idle-time processing and idle-time
saving for better performance. “When the server isn’t busy, the Dragon can
automatically process responses so the results are ready when you want to
see them. And when processing, it will keep your custom reports up to date
as well,” said Geoff Coffey of Waves in Motion.

Users can quickly design and host web surveys locally using FileMaker Pro 5
Unlimited. Users without FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited can create and export
their surveys for remote hosting using Waves in Motion’s hosting services.

New and enhanced features include:

– Faster processing and reporting time
– Multiple section surveys
– Conditional branching
– Auto-updating reports
– Idle-time processing
– Idle-time saving
– Multi-user support
– Four levels of authentication
– Improved user interface

Standard features include:

– Support for unlimited questions and answers
– Multiple questions types, question dividers and embedded images
– Search to show statistics on a targeted subset of your respondents
– Comparison reporting to view two sets side-by-side
– Industry-leading ease-of-use


The Dragon Web Surveys 6.0 requires FileMaker Pro 5 Unlimited or higher
with a dedicated IP address and runs on both Macintosh 8.6 (or higher) and
Windows 95/98/NT. For users who don’t own FileMaker Unlimited, a run-time
version is available for remote hosting.

Pricing and Availability:

The Dragon Web Surveys 6.0 retails for $895 for a full version with a
single user license. Additional users licenses are available for purchase.
