COLOGNE, Germany, August 4, 2010 - Globalpark (, a leading provider of panel
community and survey software, has become the preferred feedback management
platform for the town of Konstanz in Germany. By using Globalpark technology,
the town's local government is able to find out what matters most to its
inhabitants and measure the changes in opinion of its people with regular and
carefully managed surveys.

The town of Konstanz needed a way to capture feedback from a
representative sample of citizens to create the best mix of services. By
working with Globalpark, they have found a low-cost and professional way to
do this both online and offline. In addition, the online citizen community
has become a powerful new way for local government to share information and
interact with the public. "With Globalpark, we are now in a much better
position to survey the people of Konstanz regularly and in depth on matters
of fundamental importance," comments Eberhard Baier, responsible for
statistics in Konstanz. "We are also better able to keep them informed about
what is going on in the town and the council."

Dr. Lorenz Graf, CEO of Globalpark adds, "It is satisfying to see
feedback management technology applied to engage citizens and make for a
better-serviced community. Of our commercial, academic and public sector
clients, the Town of Konstanz has found a way to balance input and
information for a true win-win solution."
