Goozex – Online Video Game Trading Platform Adds Portable Games to Service
COLLEGE PARK, MD - September 1, 2006 - Goozex, Inc. launched today a series of expected platform upgrades to meet growing customer demands. The first upgrade released today is the extension of cross-platform trading lines. For the first time, Goozex is entering the portable gaming market by allowing users to trade their Sony Playstation Portable (PSP), Nintendo Dual Screen (DS), and Nintendo Game Boy Advance (GBA) games. Goozex expects the portable gaming market to grow as manufacturers continue to release new models and more software titles are published. The NPD Group, in its 2004 annual video game industry report, stated that sales of portable games and devices accounted for just over 10 percent, or $1 billion, of total video game retail sales. Portable game software experienced a 13 percent growth from the previous year. Goozex expects portable gaming to continue with its rapid growth.
Extending the trading lines into portable games is part of the company's effort to provide prompt customer service and satisfaction. Maintaining high customer satisfaction is a priority within Goozex leadership, and user feedback is regularly recorded and analyzed. Jon Dugan, co-founder and COO, stated that "we not only listen to what our members are saying but we become proactive about their suggestions for improvements. The first thing we do is figure out if we can implement something without raising our low $1.00 fee." Mr. Dugan continued to say that "the second thing we do is assess the strategic value of changing the website. We take into account what our competitors are or are not doing, how it will affect our branding, and what possible partnerships can be generated with the changes. When it comes to portable games, we're very excited about the growth potential and expanding the Goozex member experience to be diverse and really a one-stop-shop for trading video games."
Goozex is continuing to keep the dialogue open with its members by introducing a new Updates Page that will detail future site changes. On the horizon is another customer driven initiative regarding mailing options. Goozex expects to launch the Mailer Matrix on September 15, 2006.
