Popup Intercept - Web Site Survey Invitations

The Popup Intercept is a combination server / client side module that can track visitors as they move through specific web site pages. A popup survey invitation can then be served to the visitor based upon triggers such as frequency of intercept or activated by the visitor's movements through the web site. The Popup Intercept triggers a new browser window containing either an intermediate survey invitation or the first page of the survey itself. The Popup Intercept uses SurveyWriter's exclusive layering technology to avoid popup blockers and ensures the survey invitation is available to all visitors to your web site.
