"We are excited to broaden the project scope with this Global 100 client and to start on-boarding the first joint client in our marketing relationship with Controlco," stated Bruce Widener, COO of Beacon Solutions.  "Most importantly, 100% of the $2.3M in expected revenue is new organic growth that we should realize in the first half of 2011 and is not part of our previously announced Project Backlog.  Our sales teams are utilizing our channel strategy to bring on new clients as well as to increase business with existing clients."

Under the Global Fortune 100 engagement, Beacon will utilize two of its four ITS disciplines, Service Delivery Management (SDM) and ITS Engineering (IE) for the purpose of completing ITS infrastructure assessments in 28 client sites initially and 210 other locations throughout the project.  The client sites are in locations through-out the world, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America and Mexico.  

The second engagement was solidified through the Company's Master Marketing Agreement with Controlco to pursue joint ITS infrastructure clients.  The scope of work for the first joint project will be performed by Beacon's ITS Construction Management (ICM) technical business unit and focuses on providing energy management data to the client through the installation of electrical power metering and supporting network infrastructure for a number of United States based retail shopping centers.

"This first project consummates our commercial relationship with Controlco and is evidence of the demand for services within the Smart Enterprise vertical market, launched at the beginning of this fiscal year," stated Jerry Bowman, COO of Beacon.  "Our US-based teams have been training and doing site assessments for several weeks in preparation for the launch of this project prior to year's end.  We look forward to working with Controlco on this project and other marquee client initiatives as our relationship continues to evolve. This project holds promise to be the start of many projects with CCSG in what we consider to be a strong growth-vertical for Beacon."
