    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
