iGuiders, Inc. Closes $700,000 Funding Round for Further Development of Its Online Decision Software

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  Fast growing Cleveland Internet company, iGuiders, Inc., today announced that it has closed on $700,000 in new investment capital. Funding was provided by several existing investors, including JumpStart Ventures, as well as several new angel investors. The company will use the funding to further develop its proprietary decision software called Guiders®, which ultimately enables companies to direct Internet users to quickly find what they're searching for and make faster purchasing decisions. In addition, iGuiders will use the funding to expand its marketing and customer support initiatives for retailers, online publishers, manufacturers, resellers and content providers.

iGuiders' patent-pending online decision technology helps people identify what they want, quickly moves them through the decision funnel and expedites the purchase process. Guiders enhance searching by picking up where site filters fall short: they take generalized results and make them personalized and specific. Guiders engage visitors longer and extend the reach of pay-per-click campaigns by integrating relevant purchase opportunities within content. Guiders can reside on any website and can generate highly qualified leads for companies in real-time.

"Our goal is to set the industry standard for guided decision-making online and to provide companies with a universally adaptable software platform they can use to vastly improve the search and decision process for their online visitors," said Jodi Marchewitz, founder and CEO of iGuiders. "This infusion of capital will help accelerate the commercialization of our decision technology so we can continue to deliver our solution across a wide range of industries. We're very pleased our investors recognize iGuiders' growth potential and the strength and the expertise of our team."
