Dean Evans & Associates Announces Record Year for Facility Scheduling and Interactive Event Calendar Software

Sales for 2007 Top Prior Year -- Best Ever at the Time -- by 21%

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - Dean Evans & Associates (www.dea.com) today released information on sales of their EMS facility scheduling and interactive event calendar systems for 2007. The company finished the year with revenues up 21% over 2006, which had been its best ever. EMS room scheduling software is used by corporations, higher education campuses, hospitals, churches, school districts and other organizations to manage the scheduling of rooms, resources and services. EMS Master Calendar software is used to create interconnected web-based calendars that serve as the primary source of event information for large entities such as universities, municipalities, corporations and school districts.

"By itself, a 21% growth rate may seem fairly meaningless to our customers and prospective customers," says Kevin Raasch, the company's vice president. "Where an increase in revenue becomes meaningful to them is in the enhancement of our products and services that will be funded by this record year."

Scheduled for the first half of 2008 is a major release of all of the company's room and resource scheduling and online calendar systems. "This will be one of the most feature-rich releases we've put out in many years," says Raasch. "Over 500 project plan 'work items' have been completed already by our development team and they're not finished yet. We're confident that our customers will be pleased with the enhancements -- which cover everything from event-related communications to resource management to reporting -- especially since most of the improvements are the result of their input."

"We've been fortunate to have a very loyal customer base. Their positive word-of-mouth is one of the factors that have driven positive sales figures for the past decade," says Raasch, noting that the average growth rate for the last 10 years has been over 30%, with revenues more than doubling in the last three years. "We look forward to another year of working with them on the continuing evolution of our facility scheduling and calendaring products."
