Cleva Technologies Named RECon 2010 On-Site Survey Partner for Second Consecutive Year

Xit Poll® System Used for Delegate Polling at International Council of Shopping Centers Annual Conference and Trade Show

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) -  Cleva Technologies, the company pioneering real-time consumer insights monitoring, today announced that it has been selected by the International Council of Shopping Centers as the On-Site Survey Partner for the 2010 RECon conference and trade show, May 23-25 in Las Vegas.

As the show's On-Site Survey Partner for the second consecutive year, Cleva will provide an end-to-end solution for real-time attendee satisfaction monitoring. This includes the design, deployment and management of delegate surveys using the company's portable electronic Xit Poll system. The Xit Poll system will be deployed to capture and report attendee feedback throughout the three-day event, which is expected to attract more than 30,000 delegates, including real estate developers, shopping center management companies and major retail chains.

The Xit Poll system includes a versatile, easy-to-use, ruggedized mobile survey kiosk and a powerful, user-friendly Web-based data management system. The system employs secure wireless technology to automatically connect each Xit Poll kiosk to the interactive Web portal where survey managers can manage, view and download the results and program individual or multiple kiosks, all in real time.

The light-weight Xit Poll kiosks are ready to use out of the box and require no network configuration or installation. The kiosks will be positioned throughout the Las Vegas Convention Center to capture RECon delegates' input.

"We are extremely pleased to have Cleva Technologies as our on-site delegate survey partner again," said Rita Malek, Global Trade Show Sales Manager at the International Council of Shopping Centers. "Last year we received high response rates using Xit Poll and this year we are expanding the on-site polling to learn even more about what is important to delegates and how the show can best meet their needs -- all in real time."

"We are excited to be RECon's On-Site Survey partner for the second year," said Larry Canipe, CEO, Cleva Technologies. "Our continued participation will help ICSC keep its finger on the pulse of show attendees and in the process showcases our real-time attendee satisfaction monitoring technology."

Intended to provide crucial data for marketing and business planning, Xit Poll is designed to easily and affordably collect, manage and report detailed information on customers' perceptions and reactions at the "Point of Experience." Xit Poll is designed for use by restaurants, hotels and motels, fashion retailers, financial institutions, automobile dealerships, trade shows & conferences, healthcare providers, and many other businesses and organizations in addition to municipalities and government agencies.
