SurveySuite (http://intercom.virginia.edu/SurveySuite/) allows a user to create, edit, publish, notify, and tally an electronic survey. It supports the creation of electronic survey instruments with any number of sections and questions. Each question can have an individual response type, such as yes/no, satisfaction (2-5 levels), multiple choice allowing one or multiple responses, open-ended (one or more lines of text), numeric or dollar value, tabular response, or custom design. Having designed a survey, it can be published to an e-mail list (with recipient e-mail addresses being typed or cut-and-pasted into a text box, or retrieved from a named private list) along with an electronic cover letter. When the survey is complete, the administrator can tally the results and see them immediately as bar graphs, or download the results file into an Excel spreadsheet and use its display wizard to produce colorful, labeled graphics.


Matchmaker was a searchable database of over 5000 high-technology companies in Virginia. A user could search the database to find customers, suppliers, partners, or consultants. Information submitted online (edits or additions)was verified after being added to the database. The tool supported searches based upon: using a keyword in the company name, business description, primary products, primary services, or core competencies; defined business categories; geographic location based upon zip code, city name, or region; or other business characteristics such as minority owned, woman owned, disadvantaged, or number of employees. The database returned all available information about companies that match search criteria, or it  returned abbreviated information, company contact information, or mailing lists.


Brainpower for Business was  a searchable database of the intellectual resources that Virginia's colleges and universities provide to businesses. Brainpower provided information about business assistance centers and services, educational opportunities, hiring opportunities, research technology parks, community service activities, intellectual properties that can be licensed, and a searchable database of faculty research interests. Using the latter, one could input a search phrase (e.g., "electronic commerce", "wireless communications") and retrieve a list of faculty currently conducting research in that area, including a research description and hotlinks to the faculty member's website.


Outreach Virginia (http://www.virginia.edu/outreachvirginia/) is an interactive guide to the public service programs at the University of Virginia. You can search by interest area, geographic region, program type, special audience type, or by keyword. Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Public Service and developed by InterCom, Outreach Virginia lists about 300 programs offered to the public.
