GuestMetrics™ Collaborates With MicroStrategy® on Mobile Business Intelligence Application

LEESBURG, VA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2010) -  SSPT's GuestMetrics™ (PINKSHEETS: SSPT) CEO, Brian Barrett, announces today that it has collaborated with MicroStrategy® Incorporated (NASDAQ: MSTR) to design, produce and distribute a comprehensive and user-friendly iPhone application for the hospitality industry.

"Our relationship with MicroStrategy has proven to be highly beneficial in the growth of our company and the progress of its solutions and their applications," states Barrett. "The development of this business intelligence application for the hospitality industry is a prime example of the value in strategic partnerships. MicroStrategy is a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software and they were the ideal source to work with in the development of this application. We (GuestMetrics) collect mass Point-of-Sale data for restaurants and hotels and provide invaluable quantitative data that executives can use to increase operational efficiency and overall profitability."

The GuestMetrics app using MicroStrategy Mobile™ provides beverage suppliers and distributors with data on restaurant guests' purchasing behavior at the transaction-level. The app provides detailed insights into consumer spending, consumption preferences, menu pairings, and overall beverage brand health. With convenient access to this valuable information, beverage suppliers and distributors can better understand consumer purchasing patterns and make data-driven decisions as they evaluate product performance, plan consumer promotions, and market new products.

MicroStrategy Mobile enables companies to easily extend graphs, grids, enterprise reports, and information dashboards to the iPhone and iPad. MicroStrategy Mobile is designed to take full advantage of the multi-touch interface and sensor capabilities of mobile devices to enhance the business intelligence user experience.

"Together, we've combined our expertise to bring our software to the on-the-go executives via iPhone. We're in a world today that goes beyond the 9 to 5 and outside the walls of our everyday office. We have the technology available to work on the plane, the beach and within an arm's reach in the middle of the night; it's important to keep the people, not just the products, in mind as we continue to grow. Our new iPhone app does exactly that, allowing our clients to work whenever, wherever, to position themselves ahead of the competition with our cutting-edge business intelligence (BI) tools," adds Barrett. "(This) is a game-changer for our clients, giving them a competitive edge and transforming the way they work," stated Brian Barrett, President and CEO of GuestMetrics.

"GuestMetrics was an early adopter of MicroStrategy Mobile, and immediately recognized the value of providing its clients with 24/7 access to critical business data," said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy's COO. "MicroStrategy Mobile enables companies to build highly-focused mobile apps that address specific business questions, while leveraging the native features of the iPhone for a faster and more intuitive user experience."
