DataSphere Launches SaaS Solutions to Rapidly Improve Web Site Profitability, User Experience and Discovery

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2009) - DataSphere, a Software as a Service (SaaS) Web technology company, today announced the availability of the DataSphere Web Suite (http://www.datasphere.com). Designed to provide companies of all sizes with the most functional, cost effective and rapidly deployable solutions to create and run Web sites based on extensive catalogs, media or other data, the DataSphere Web Suite is built on an infinitely scalable, multi-tenant SaaS platform.

The DataSphere Web Suite is already powering several Web sites including LandWatch.com, http://search.komonews.com and http://www.newhomelistings.com.

"We believe there is a tremendous opportunity in providing an affordable, world class consumer experience for Web sites," said DataSphere CEO Satbir Khanuja. "The DataSphere Web Suite is designed to enable Web sites with extensive product, media or other data catalogs to benefit from the latest advances in Internet technology. By reducing the cost and complexity, improving the user experience and speeding up deployment of these new technologies, we can help Web site owners to increase revenues and reduce expenses within weeks."

The DataSphere Web Suite is a comprehensive site creation, hosting and management solution that gives Web site owners access to a range of best in class capabilities for automatically attracting traffic from across the Web and delivering an outstanding in-site consumer experience. Based on decades of driving traffic and user experience at some of the world's foremost Web sites including Amazon.com and MSN.com, the DataSphere team has created a service that fuses the latest technologies with the best in user experience design and unlimited scalability.

The suite is comprised of a number of different services, each designed to satisfy the specific requirements of individual customers.

Search and Discovery

Enables Web sites to overhaul their current search and discovery capabilities by injecting a new state of the art search result page and set of search "widgets" into an existing Web site, thereby providing rapid and substantial improvements in site visitor experience while avoiding the disruption and risks associated with an entire site changeover. Visit http://search.komonews.com to see how DataSphere Search and Discovery has transformed the search experience for TV broadcasting Web sites.

Audience Builder

Quickly and easily creates fully cobranded "mini-sites" which can be inserted into existing third party sites, providing them with additional functionality while gaining exposure to their traffic and generating links back to the parent site to enhance SEO. An example of how ResortScape has used this capability to deliver targeted real estate listings within Time Warner Inc.'s GOLF.com site can be found at: http://golf.resortscape.com.

Site Multiplier

Attracts focused, niche audiences by subdividing the product catalog of comprehensive sites under specifically targeted domains or micro-sites. For example, within days of subscribing to this service, a sporting goods company could launch unique and distinctive sites such as troutfishingspecialists.com, bestsoccershoes.com or seattlehikingboots.com.

TotalSite™

Provides a complete end-to-end solution for Web sites with deep catalogs of data from media to ecommerce and real estate sites, such as NewHomeListings.com, LandWatch.com and ResortScape.com.

Editor's Note: DataSphere is the new brand name for SecondSpace, Inc., a leader in marketplaces focused on the second home lifestyle. While continuing to invest in and grow its ResortScape.com and LandWatch.com Web sites, DataSphere will take the technology and knowledge gained in building these destinations and focus on making it available to other companies bringing extensive catalogs, media collections or other data to the Internet.
