Universal Mind Signs Consulting Partnership Agreement With Gomez

GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Universal Mind, Inc., a leading solutions provider for Rich Internet Applications (RIA), today announced it has become a global consulting partner for Gomez, Inc., a leading provider of web application experience management services.

58 percent of organizations are unsatisfied with the performance of applications that they currently use, according to a recent report by the Aberdeen Group(1). By matching Universal Mind's web application development and testing expertise with Gomez's web application testing and measurement services, organizations can more quickly build and deploy high-performing web applications that deliver quality web experiences.

Universal Mind has already assisted a Gomez customer by helping them to assess how peak loads might impact their users' web experiences across the globe using Gomez's Reality Load XF external load testing service.

"Many companies lack the skill sets or resources to successfully build and deploy complex Web 2.0 applications," said Brett Cortese, president, Universal Mind. "By stepping in as a Gomez consulting partner, Universal Mind will be able to leverage our Web developer expertise as well as our extensive knowledge of the Adobe suite and RIAs to help Gomez customers realize the full potential of their Gomez ExperienceFirst investment."
