City of Dayton Expands Use of Spescom eB

Tax Department Uses eB to Optimize Tax Processing and Integration With Oracle

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- Spescom Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SPCO), a leading provider of enterprise content and configuration management solutions, announced today that the City of Dayton selected and implemented Spescom's eB DM suite to automate the process of the city tax returns. In addition to capturing and managing the incoming tax returns, the City of Dayton's development staff, with the assistance of Spescom's Professional services organization, quickly developed an integrated solution with Oracle Financials.

Spescom has provided content and document management solutions for the City of Dayton since 2004. The City of Dayton, with a vision for the future, selected Spescom for its ability to support the City's needs for both engineering and administrative business requirements and is complementary with the ESRI Geo-Spatial solution and the Hansen Permitting system. The initial implementation was for the Water/Waste Water engineering organization and was quickly followed by the Police department. The recent application of eB is for automating the processing of the City's tax returns to increase efficiencies in access, control, and visibility of tax returns with their Oracle-based solution.

"This win builds upon the successful relationship we've enjoyed with City of Dayton, as well as many other local government customers like City of Las Vegas, City of Winston Salem, Lancaster, and City of Louisville. The government market and our integration with Hansen Technologies are areas that are showing growth and, with our extensive knowledge and success, continue to be a strong vertical for Spescom and are important parts of our business plan," said Alan Kiraly, CEO. "The continued investment in Spescom by valued customers like City of Dayton is an affirmation of our capabilities and commitment to customer service. It also demonstrates how our product development strategy protects our customers' investments while delivering solutions to meet their ever-changing business needs."

Chief John Moore, Director IT, added, "The City of Dayton IT department continues to leverage their current technologies to consolidate systems and reduce cost of operation while delivering best in class solutions to meet our customers' requirements. The decision to embrace Spescom as corporate standard continues to prove to be the right decision. To continue to leverage our investment we are preparing plans to expand the eB solution into other departments. With the continued support and high quality of customer service we have come to expect from Spescom we are excited about our future."
