Solution for the Professional Services Industry Receives Prestigious Award in the "Outstanding Print Management/Cost Recovery Solution" Category

PLANTATION, FL--(Marketwire - December 12, 2008) - Equitrac Professional 5, the most advanced version of Equitrac Corporation's market-leading print management and cost recovery solution for professional services firms, has received the Buyers Laboratory Inc.'s (BLI's), Fall 2008 "Pick" award in the "Outstanding Print Management/Cost Recovery Solution" category. BLI's awards are given to the hardware and software offerings that measure up as the best in the comprehensive evaluations, which assess a wide range of the most important performance factors for buyers.

"In a challenging economic climate, businesses need every opportunity to recoup costs quickly and accurately, as well as trim expenses wherever possible," said BLI Managing Editor Daria Hoffman. "Equitrac Professional delivers on both fronts."

Earlier this year, Equitrac Professional 5 was awarded BLI's Five Star rating. The Five Star rating is awarded to companies that demonstrate superior product and service in its market category. "Based on our review, BLI has no hesitation recommending Equitrac Professional 5 to organizations that are seeking a scalable, robust, cost-effective print management cost accounting application," said Hoffman. BLI cited Equitrac Professional's compatibility with virtually all MFP brands, as well as a wide range of back-end legal document management and accounting/billing applications as key considerations in awarding Equitrac Professional 5 the Five Star rating.
