Envista Increases Customer Growth Rate by 30 Percent

In Challenging Economy Number of Infrastructure Projects Under Management More Than Doubles

BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2010) -  Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of map-based coordination for smarter, safer streets, today announced that its customer growth rate increased by 30 percent over the third quarter of fiscal year 2010. In the same period, Envista's Smarter Streets web solutions reached a new milestone, now hosting information on more than 100,000 projects underway in the U.S. and Canada. Among the many new customers added this fiscal quarter, Envista is pleased to now be working with the cities of Norfolk, Va. and Portsmouth, Va., as well as the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority, Hampton Roads (Va.) Sanitary District, Pepco Holdings, Inc., City of Providence, and Shaw Communications. Among the customers renewing their subscriptions to Envista web solutions are the cities of Baltimore, Md., Lowell, Mass., Providence, R.I., Sacramento, Calif., and Washington, D.C., as well as the Providence (R.I.) Water Supply Board, Trigen-Baltimore Energy Corp., and Washington (D.C.) Gas.

Mark Prestipino, Envista's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our new customers and renewed subscribers demonstrate how the value of Envista Smarter Streets increases dramatically as more players within a given metropolitan area contribute, share and coordinate their project and event information online. Despite tight budgets, Envista's ability to help our customers save money and time allows them to overcome financial challenges with operating efficiencies that minimize constraints and create opportunities to improve service and satisfaction across their constituencies. By not only renewing, but also subscribing to additional modules, existing customers such as the City of Baltimore are a testament to the value that Envista Smarter Streets provides, and how that value increases as more information is managed and coordinated."

Envista's map-based web solutions enable innovation and proactive management of the public right-of-way to reduce project delivery time, save money, enhance the safety of streets and roadways, and minimize environmental impact. In July 2010, Envista introduced Smarter Streets, a suite of web modules that geo-locate on a dynamic map all activities occurring in the public right of way. The entities responsible for these activities can then manage and coordinate their respective projects, incidents and events to improve the performance and safety of streets and roadways. Envista's innovative web-run software also links planned or unplanned events to traffic management, and allows subscribers to access and share detailed information, including contact information, project and event schedules, conflicts, opportunities and more, all through a standard web browser.
