ePlus Technology Recognized by Cisco for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - ePlus inc. (NASDAQ: PLUS) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, ePlus Technology inc., has achieved a Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star from Cisco for the fourth straight quarter. This designation recognizes ePlus for delivering outstanding service to customers in the United States.

"We're pleased to be acknowledged by Cisco with this highest customer satisfaction distinction for the fourth consecutive quarter," said Jerry McIntosh, vice president of advanced technology solutions for ePlus Technology. "Achieving Customer Satisfaction Excellence again this quarter reinforces our commitment to delivering Cisco advanced technology architecture solutions with the highest customer experience, empowering them to reduce risk and enhance efficiency."

"Customer service is a cornerstone of the Cisco Resale Channel Program. We are pleased to recognize and congratulate ePlus for achieving outstanding customer satisfaction again," said Edison Peres, senior vice president of the worldwide channels go-to-market group at Cisco.

Cisco measures the customer satisfaction levels achieved by its Gold, Silver, and Premier Certified partners based on regional target goals, providing a weighted average of a partner's pre- and post-sales support over a rolling 12-month period. Partners that achieve outstanding customer satisfaction are awarded the Customer Satisfaction Excellence Gold Star.

The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides a framework for partners to build the sales, technical, and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to deliver Cisco solutions to end customers. Through the program's specializations and certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner's expertise in deploying solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit process, the program validates partner qualifications such as technology skills, business best practices, customer satisfaction, and pre-sales and post-sales support capabilities -- critical factors in choosing a trusted partner.

In addition to Cisco Master Specializations in Security and Unified Communications, ePlus holds Cisco Advanced Specializations in Routing and Switching, Data Center Storage Networking, Data Center Networking Infrastructure, and Wireless LAN as well as Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) designations in Cisco TelePresence, Video Surveillance, and Data Center Unified Computing.
