Angel.com Releases Site Builder 2005 Update

MCLEAN, Va. — Angel.com, a leading provider of web-based, advanced telephony solutions and a division of MicroStrategy® Incorporated, announced a significant update to Site Builder 2005, the company's web-based toolkit that allows users to create speech-enabled phone applications quickly and easily. Site Builder 2005 now features Data and Logic Pages, which make Angel.com's toolkit more powerful by allowing users to leverage a tool as simple as a spreadsheet to create and manage interactive Voice Sites -- toll-free numbers that replicate website functionality.

Data Pages enable Angel.com users to create voice applications based on data and information stored in spreadsheets. To use Data Pages, spreadsheets are simply uploaded to Angel.com, and then instantly function as hosted databases for users' Voice Sites. In addition to read and write data access, Data Page functionality includes options for delivery of updated data via email and FTP.

Logic Pages enable users to specify sophisticated, data-driven call flows with Angel.com's easy-to-use Site Builder interface. Complex business rules, data operations and advanced handling of variables can now be configured online by business users without comprehensive development, scripting and integration with remote infrastructures.

Data and Logic Pages are an excellent solution for companies looking to rapidly automate common phone requests. For example, Data and Logic Pages can be used to create Voice Sites for:

    *  Order Status  
    *  Surveys  
    *  Shopping Carts  
    *  Store Locators  

"With a spreadsheet and our Site Builder toolkit featuring Data and Logic Pages, anyone with basic technical skills can create a powerful and interactive Voice Site to automate common phone requests," said Mike Zirngibl, president and CEO of Angel.com. "This update significantly advances Angel.com's mission to simplify and de-mystify the creation and management of speech technology applications."
