Envision Financial Systems Named to Software Magazine's 24th Annual Software 500 for Second Consecutive Year

Software Magazine Again Ranks Envision as One of the World's Largest Software Companies

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2006 -- Envision Financial Systems, a leading provider of software solutions to the financial industry, today announced its inclusion on the Software 500, Software Magazine's list of the world's foremost software and services providers, published as an online catalog on The ranking marks Envision's second consecutive year on this prestigious list.

"2005 was a banner year for Envision with record revenues," says Tim Kan, President of Envision. "We are confident that the outlook for 2006 is even brighter with the release of products such as our 22c2 compliance solution, our enhanced cash reconciliation system, and the addition of 529 plan support for our PowerAgent transfer agency system. As our company continues to expand we believe that maintaining the focus on our clients' needs will propel us forward."

"The 2006 Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was flat from 2004 to 2005, the ranking year. The industry continues to be dynamic with more than 90 new companies on the list this year," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and "Strong segments this year included security and system integration services. While much of the growth is coming from outside the U.S. in the services segment, the flattening world effect is sending some of it back too.

"Total employee head count is down from the previous year's Software 500, reversing a growth trend. The industry produced about the same revenue with fewer employees," Desmond says.

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

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.
