Scalability Testing Validates StayinFront’s Ability to Support 8,000 Remote Users Using a Single Unisys ES7000 Server

<p>–The StayinFront Visual Elk® Synchronization Product Demonstrates High Performance, Efficient Use of Database Server –</p>
<p>StayinFront, a leading global provider of world-class enterprise-wide customer relationship management (CRM) applications, decision support tools and e-business systems, today revealed benchmark testing results that validate the performance and scalability of the StayinFront Visual Elk Synchronization System.</p>
<p>StayinFront Visual Elk is the Company’s flagship CRM solution and its Synchronization functionality ensures that current customer interaction information is available whenever needed, regardless of geographic or corporate location. StayinFront Visual Elk Synchronization enables remote sales professionals to electronically update customer data from field locations, making certain the latest data is entered into the corporate enterprise databases.</p>
<p>The scalability testing used a single hardware environment, specifically the Unisys ES7000 server with Microsoft® SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft® Datacenter Server 2003. Conducted at StayinFront’s corporate data centre, it used transaction levels derived from “real life” pharmaceutical CRM interactions and matched the expected daily input of 8,000 remote users.</p>
<p>Thomas R. Buckley, Chief Executive Officer of StayinFront, said, “There’s an ever-growing number of devices, touchpoints and data sources involved in the typical CRM implementation, necessitating superior scalability and data synchronization. In our global economy where real-time business decisions require rapid access to real-time data, StayinFront has once again proven its ability to scale and synchronize in a daily scenario that involves thousands of users and hundreds of thousands of transactions on only one hardware platform.”</p>
<p>Andrew Campbell, Managing Director of StayinFront Group Australia Pty Ltd, said “This benchmark will give our clients confidence that no matter how large they grow, StayinFront will continue to be able to support them.”</p>
<p>A recent Gartner report, dated January 12, 2005, underscores the importance of synchronization on a central server platform. It adds that multiple solutions on multiple platforms create duplicate and alternative views of the same data. Buckley continued, “While other CRM vendors tout their scalability, companies need to look under the hood, as often they’re quoting test results that involved multiple hardware platforms. StayinFront has consistently demonstrated its ability to deliver the scalability and synchronization results needed in the enterprise without the costs of additional hardware infrastructure and data quality problems created by managing those multiple hardware investments.”</p>
