Benjamin Moore Selects OpenPages SOX Express for Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 6, 2005 -- OpenPages, the leading provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance management (GRCM) solutions, today announced Benjamin Moore & Co. has selected OpenPages Sarbanes-Oxley Express (SOX Express) as its Sarbanes-Oxley compliance application. Benjamin Moore will deploy SOX Express to automate the company's ongoing assessment and monitoring of its internal controls.

Benjamin Moore & Co. has been making quality paint since 1883, when Benjamin Moore and his brother William opened a small facility in Brooklyn, NY, and began manufacturing Calsom Finish, a calsomine coating soon favored by homeowners and contractors alike. After turning a profit that very first year, the Benjamin Moore® brand grew to reflect the beliefs of Benjamin Moore the person, who ensured that his company operated on three key principles, "Integrity," "Intelligence," and "Industry." As one of the country's leading providers of paints and coatings, Benjamin Moore products are sold through a channel of authorized independent retail stores nationwide. Benjamin Moore & Co. operates facilities throughout North America and manufactures and distributes a comprehensive and carefully crafted line of paints and coatings. Headquartered in Montvale, New Jersey, the company also maintains a state-of-the-art Technical Center in Flanders, New Jersey, which houses its labs, a Customer Care center, and the renowned "test farm," an exterior-weathering testing station where employees -- and frequently, the news media -- gather to test and learn about paint performance and new developments in paint technology.

OpenPages SOX Express is an enterprise compliance management solution that reduces the time and resource costs associated with ongoing compliance for Sections 302 and 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. SOX Express combines powerful document management, business process management and flexible reporting capabilities in an extremely easy-to-use environment that enables an organization to document financial controls and automate the ongoing test and review process. Completely web-based, SOX Express maximizes end-user participation with little training. Its dashboards can be used by project managers, documentation team members, internal auditors and external auditors to plan, document and test the internal controls framework of the company, and to attest to the financial statements.
