Dean Evans & Associates, Inc. Named to Software Magazine's 25th Annual Software 500

Software Magazine Ranks Room and Resource Scheduling Software Provider as One of World's Largest Software Companies

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - October 12, 2007) - Dean Evans & Associates, Inc. (www.dea.com) today announced its inclusion on Software Magazine's (www.softwaremag.com) Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers. Now in its 25th year, the Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.

Dean Evans & Associates, which develops the EMS line of facility scheduling and online calendar software, was ranked 437 in the recently completed evaluation. The company also made the Top 10 for growth within its revenue segment with a 96.9% growth rate.

"The 2007 Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was healthy from 2006 to 2007, the ranking year. The industry continues to be dynamic with more than 98 new companies on the list this year for the first time," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.

"We're honored to have earned a place in the Software 500 and a spot in the Top 10 for growth in our segment," says Sean Mulvey, director of sales for Dean Evans & Associates. "Much of the increase can be attributed to tremendous growth in sales to the corporate market in the last few years, as companies of all sizes have embraced better room and resource management strategies, including facility scheduling and office hoteling."

"The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research the short list of business partners," Desmond says. "It is a quick reference of vendor viability."

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2006. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
