PRESS RELEASE Biznet Contact: Eric Eager Vice President (972) 893-0000 Ext 108 - email@example.com TIW Technology, Inc. Partners with BizNet Software to Fortify Financial Reporting within its ALERE® Solution Manufacturing and accounting software provider enhances its Excel®-based reporting tool set with BizNet Excel® Business Information Suite DALLAS, TX and EASTON, PA (September 28, 2010) — BizNet Software and TIW Technology, Inc. today announced a partnership agreement to integrate the BizNet Excel® Business Information Suite with TIW's ALERE® Accounting solution and to designate the BizNet suite as TIW's preferred financial reporting solution. ALERE ® Accounting is a comprehensive accounting solution for the mid-market. Among its optional features, ALERE ® offers users the ability to format, analyze, merge and export Excel®-based reports. According to TIW president, Rod Hatcher, functional and support issues with his company's long-time financial reporting provider compelled him to make the switch to BizNet. "There certainly is a demand in the marketplace for an Excel-based reporting system and BizNet represents an opportunity for us to align with a company that is much stronger in the market, with a much more sophisticated tool set." The BizNet Excel® Business Information Suite offers businesses a one-stop business intelligence solution for the day-to-day challenges they face in compiling Excel® reports and accessing, analyzing and distributing data throughout the organization. The suite consists of three products, BizInsight™, its reporting and business intelligence component; BizContent™, which provides real-time database connectivity and consolidation, extending and automating the sharing of data and existing spreadsheets between business systems; and BizBroadcast™, which enables organizations to automate the creation and distribution of Excel® reports in a variety of formats and methods. Mr. Hatcher sees the nature of BizNet's financial reporting and interpretation capabilities as aligning closely with ALERE ® Accounting, particularly for his larger customers. "They're the ones who have the time and resources to want to take that ability to analyze their business to a more sophisticated level. ALERE ® provides all the tools and reports necessary for day-to-day business activity, whereas BizNet steps it up a level on the analysis side of the business. They offer more trend analysis, beyond simple accounting. The bottom line is that we and BizNet have a mutual approach. We're a real-time system with a lot of drill-down capabilities, which is exactly what they are; they're a natural extension of what --- MORE --- we do, and that's going to provide a lot of value to users who want to have a better insight into their business." BizNet president & CEO, George McMann, sees strategic benefits for both companies. "Making the BizNet Excel® Business Information Suite available to TIW's customers is a critical step in establishing BizNet as the industry standard for reporting solutions. TIW's customers, on the other hand, will now have access to a fully updated and sophisticated financial reporting system that's affordable, easy to use, powerful and one developed specifically for distributing and transferring data in the most widely used reporting solution of them all - Excel®."
