Integration of EMS and FM:Interact Systems Will Simplify Collaboration Between Meeting Coordinators and Facility Managers

DENVER, CO and PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 30, 2007 -- Dean Evans & Associates (DEA) (, a leading provider of facility and resource scheduling and office hoteling systems, today announced that it has partnered with Advanced Spatial technologies (ASt) (, who will begin marketing the Event Management System (EMS) product line in the Australia/New Zealand/Asia Pacific region.

"This partnership will have a very positive impact on our customers and our companies," says Don Hitchcock, managing director of ASt. "Whether a client's situation calls for EMS alone or the integrated EMS/FM:Interact system, they will see increased productivity and will be able to provide their internal customers with significantly enhanced customer service. We're excited to have Dean Evans & Associates as a strategic partner."

"ASt's reputation as a trusted source for facility management solutions in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region will be invaluable as we look to establish our company in this market," says Kevin Raasch, executive vice president for Dean Evans and Associates. "While EMS is already being used by some industry-leading organizations in Australia, we want to increase awareness of our products in the region. We're eager to begin working with Advanced Spatial technologies."
