Westbrook Technologies Signs Two New Resellers in Connecticut and California, Increasing Market Reach Coast-to-Coast

Connecticut Business Systems and ASTRO Business Technologies Add Westbrook's Fortis Document Management Software to Their Portfolio

BRANFORD, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2005 -- Westbrook Technologies, a leader in enterprise document management software for the mid-market and one of Deloitte and Touche's 2005 "Fast 50" technology companies in Connecticut, today announced the addition of two new resellers to its elite Partner program. Connecticut Business Systems of Rocky Hill, CT and ASTRO Business Technologies of Livermore, CA will increase Westbrook's geographical reach and address the growing demand for the Company's document management solutions.

Westbrook's elite Partner program is comprised of a select group of resellers trained to provide localized sales and service of the Company's document management product suite. Two-thousand four was a milestone year for Westbrook Technologies' Partner program with the Company's top 10 Partners increasing sales by 40 percent. Within that distinguished category, three of the top Partners increased sales by a remarkable 1,000 percent.

Connecticut Business Systems (CBS) is a digital imaging solutions company and subsidiary of Global Imaging Systems, a nationwide provider of office imaging solutions. CBS markets a full line of digital imaging solutions such as high-speed duplicators, fax machines and printers; electronic presentation equipment; video conferencing equipment; and computer hardware and software. They support the Savin, Ricoh and Riso duplicator product lines with offices in White Plains, NY, Pittsfield, MA and Springfield, MA. CBS has won numerous sales awards and has been recognized for the past seven years for service excellence from Ricoh.

Document solutions service provider ASTRO Business Technologies ("ASTRO") brings 30 years of experience serving businesses in the greater San Francisco Bay area and Northern California to Westbrook's Partner program. ASTRO offers best-of-breed copier/printer equipment, facsimile machines, supplies, integrated software solutions (including EDM, print management and Variable Data Printing), consulting and integration services and "Day 2" support.

"We're very excited about our recent partnership with Westbrook Technologies. The company is a high quality solutions provider that is a perfect fit for CBS. The partnership will allow CBS to close the loop for our clients with the ability to provide the MFP scanning devices as well as helping manage the content on their networks. This is a big win for our clients and CBS," said Wilson Vega, President of Connecticut Business Systems.

Paul Thompson, President and CEO of ASTRO Business Technologies added, "Our customers look to us for complete office imaging solutions, and adding Fortis to our portfolio strengthens the quality of our product offerings. Westbrook has a strong product suite, a solid reputation in the industry and a forward-thinking team committed to delivering the best document management solutions. We are thrilled to be part of Westbrook's elite Partner team."

"These new partnerships will accelerate the delivery of our document management software to customers from coast to coast and further expand the reach of our products nationwide," said Paul Lord, Westbrook Technologies' President and CEO. "This year we have added more quality Partners like CBS and ASTRO than in any other year. This success can be attributed to the core principle of our elite Partner program which is the commitment of an extremely focused segmentation of our geographical and vertical markets so that we never overpopulate the channel, thereby avoiding channel conflict. Both CBS and ASTRO have extensive experience serving their large customer base and we look forward to working closely with both companies as they implement Westbrook's document management and workflow solutions into their installed base, as well as making them more competitive in new sales situations. Both of these Partners show great potential for the future."
