Sunnyvale, Calif. - February 27, 2007 - Caspio, Inc. (www.caspio.com), the leading provider of web database solutions, today announced a customer relationship with Lee Enterprises, (www.lee.net), publisher of 56 daily newspapers in 23 states.
Lee Enterprises' decision to roll out the Caspio Bridge platform for online database publishing follows the recent successful deployment of Caspio Bridge by another large online publisher, Cox Newspapers.
"For online publishers, Caspio Bridge is the Holy Grail," said Jeff Herr, Director of Interactive Media at Lee Enterprises. "We can now offer 'push-of-the-button' interactive content for our readers, providing dynamic local information as well as nationwide statistics - that's very exciting for us."
Using step-by-step wizards, media companies draw on Caspio Bridge to boost their readership and increase page views by publishing local databases such as school statistics, sports scores, political campaign data, local directories and surveys.
"Newspapers are sitting on tremendously valuable database assets which used to be difficult to publish and monetize," said Caspio founder and CEO, Frank Zamani. "We make it easy and cost effective for web site operators to publish databases and create web applications. Lee's adoption of Caspio Bridge further strengthens our relationship with the interactive media sector."
Since 2001 over 50,000 web applications have been built with Caspio Bridge.
