Incuity Signs Equipment & Controls and A.E. Ehrke as VAR for Pennsylvania, West Virginia & Ohio

MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) - Incuity Software, Inc., a leading developer of real-time business intelligence (BI) software for manufacturing enterprises, today announced the signing of recently-merged Equipment & Controls, Inc. and A.E. Ehrke & Co., based in Pittsburgh, Penna., and Solon, Ohio, as a value-added reseller (VAR) for sales and support of the company's Incuity EMI™ software.

"Equipment & Controls and A.E. Ehrke have been serving a wide variety of industrial process customers in this region for more than 55 years and their breadth of service and experience will be important to Incuity as we grow in the region," said Gary Wilson, Vice President of Worldwide Sales. "They're renowned for their outstanding project planning and execution, information integration, application development and life cycle support services."

Equipment & Controls and A.E. Ehrke & Co. will sell, support and deploy Incuity EMI software in western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and northeastern Ohio.

"Our companies service many major customers across a broad range of industries -- such as power generation, steel, gas production and distribution, specialty and petrochemicals, pulp and paper, and refining -- and the addition of the Incuity EMI software to the products and services we already provide will help broaden relationships with our current customers and provide a conduit to a new set of customers," said Phil Szajnuk, Vice President, Systems and Solutions. "Data integration and analysis, and the power it provides for real time decision making, is critical for our customers. We believe Incuity is the best solution to deliver these capabilities."

Incuity EMI enables companies to integrate their silos of existing business and control data to gain deeper insight into manufacturing operations. Users can configure applications on top of existing information assets without being forced to rip-and-replace their legacy systems. Production people can monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) -- such as product quality, cost per unit produced, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and percentage manufactured to promise -- and can drill down easily from these metrics to analyze and resolve process problems. At the same time, management can correlate these results with overall business performance for the entire company.
