MT. LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emtec, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ETEC.OB), an IT solutions integration firm and IBM/Lotus Business Partner, has been nominated for the prestigious 2003 Lotus Beacon Awards. The Lotus Beacon Awards are presented annually to recognize partners in the IBM PartnerWorld Business Partner Program who are at the leading edge of the software industry and have delivered outstanding products, solutions and services based on Lotus Software technologies to their customers during the previous year. Emtec was nominated for its innovative design and implementation of the ReCAP (TM) system for Telecom Compliance Services (TCS). This Lotus Domino-based application allows TCS to gather, assemble, produce and distribute critical government-required reports for their clients. By automating this process, Emtec and TCS drastically reduced the amount of labor required to produce reports, while increasing the accuracy and timeliness of filings. The end result is increased internal productivity for TCS and a higher level of service for their clients. "Gathering client data and turning it into the correct reporting format on time has, in the past, been extremely labor-intensive," said Ernest Ellis, President of TCS. "With the new ReCAP(TM) system developed by Emtec, our Account Analysts are much more productive, resulting in greater profit. Our customers' new ability to access critical information via the Web increases our service level to them and gives us a competitive edge in the market." A Lotus Business Partner for seven years, Emtec not only develops and deploys Lotus Domino applications for customers, but also runs its own business on Domino. According to Ron Lindsay, Emtec's Business Development Manager, the full set of features Domino offers such as email, web services, database connectors, workflow and reporting makes it an ideal platform for developing the sophisticated applications many Emtec customers demand to run their companies. "Being able to provide the feature set a customer needs while meeting their deadlines is critical; Lotus Domino helps us meet both expectations," Lindsay said. "Being nominated for the 2003 Lotus Beacon Awards is an honor. The credit should go to our talented Lotus development team. In addition to being proficient in Domino programming, they also understand our customers' business challenges, and consistently design appropriate solutions to address them," he added.
