Emtec Receives Highest Level of Accreditation From Sun Microsystems

Nov 13, 2003, 00:00 ET from Emtec, Inc.

    MT. LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emtec, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   ETEC) announced today that it has received Sun
 Microsystems' highest level of accreditation -- iForce Strategic Technology
     Emtec, a leading systems integrator providing managed services, security
 consulting, data management and enterprise infrastructure solutions, has been
 a reseller of Sun solutions for more than 15 years. It is one of only 28
 companies in the United States to have achieved the iForce Strategic
 Technology Integrator status.
     The iForce initiative is designed to allow channel partners, such as
 Emtec, to team with Sun to deliver proven solutions that help customers -from
 start-ups to large enterprises -- harness the power of the Internet and drive
 business advantage.  These end-to-end solutions focus on three core
 strategies: eliminating cost and complexity in the data center, accelerating
 the use of Web services and providing secure remote access.  These customer-
 driven solutions help enterprises leverage the network at every point in the
 business environment, including decision support systems, supply chain
 management, product design and development, e-mail and communications, as well
 as many other functions.
     Ken Sauter, Sun Microsystem's vice president for the Northeast Market
 Area, said,  "From Sun's perspective, knowing that we have a partner like
 Emtec that has stepped up to make the necessary investment in resources and
 infrastructure makes us feel extremely confident about working with and
 recommending them.  From an end-user's point of view, the iForce Strategic
 Technology Integrator certification is a stamp of approval that says, 'These
 folks really know what they're doing.' It demonstrates that Emtec has the
 wherewithal to provide complete solutions -- and they are able to do it on a
 national basis."
     Said John Howlett, CEO of Emtec, "This accreditation is recognition of the
 commitment and investment we've made to selling Sun systems. Having that
 recognition from Sun emphasizes to our clients and prospects the high level of
 training we've achieved and the depth of our relationship with Sun. This
 certification also authorizes us to sell Sun systems anywhere in the United
 States, allowing us to better serve our nationwide customers."
     Added Value
     The iForce Strategic Technology Integrator certification is awarded to
 representatives who have at least 10 sales representatives and 10 systems
 engineers certified at the enterprise level for Sun. Five of those 10 systems
 engineers must also have a Solaris core certification. An iForce Strategic
 Technology Integrator must also meet annual hardware revenue and/or growth
 rate goals. Emtec has met all of those requirements, including additional
 requirements to also attain the Storage Elite accreditation. Emtec is one of
 approximately 55 Storage Elite partners in the United States.
     "Sun has always been known for having channel partners with high added
 value," said Sauter. "They have the ability and the expertise to assess their
 customers' needs and provide complete solutions that comprise hardware,
 software and services. Emtec has demonstrated the ability to do just that.
 Their people are well trained to sell and support complex solutions on a
 national basis."
     Said Howlett, "The combination of Sun technology and Emtec expertise
 produces a harmony that will be music to customers' ears for years to come.
 We've been a Sun reseller since the late 1980s and, from an enterprise
 standpoint, we still believe that Solaris and the Sun platform are one of the
 most stable and most reliable platforms.  We think Sun's vision continues to
 be the right one for our customers."
