Locus Systems Putting Local Face on International Technology Companies; Company Offers Local One-Stop Shop for Enterprise, Including BEA, IBM, FileNet, Oracle, SchemaLogic and Compuware

TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - Sep 19, 2005) -

When Ontario-based organizations need enterprise applications and technology from international technology companies, their first option is Locus Systems, a local Toronto business that has been providing technology solutions for the Canadian public and private sectors for nearly 15 years. Locus Systems specializes in the design, development and implementation of multi-tier, enterprise architecture and development solutions, Web-enabled services and browser-based solutions. The company also serves as a Canadian distributor, value-added reseller and technology integrator for a number of leading technology organizations and solutions, including BEA, IBM, FileNet, Microsoft, Oracle, and SchemaLogic.

Locus removes the complexity, confusion and costs that many customers face when purchasing software licenses through multiple vendors. Locus Systems can manage all aspects of the review, purchasing and implementation process for a multitude of different enterprise applications. Because of Locus Systems' unique proficiency with these leading industry products, local organizations can purchase locally not only the software, using Canadian currency, but also custom bundling and implementation solutions.

"Locus Systems by our nature and location is a more responsive organization to Canadian businesses than many of the international technology companies can be on their own," said Richard Blais, general manager, Locus Systems. "We work hard to translate our knowledge and technology experience to provide area organizations with a variety of solutions that can be customized to meet their specific needs. We can offer the same pricing as manufacturers, and because we are local, we can deliver a more proactive and personalized service that companies would not get otherwise. In addition, many of our partner organizations rely on us to deliver their products and services. If area organizations need BEA, IBM or Oracle, the first company they should think of is Locus Systems."

One of the organizations that has turned to Locus for help for expansion into the Ontario market is BEA, the world's leading application infrastructure software company. In 2004, Locus Systems was named the first reseller in Ontario of the BEA WebLogic Enterprise Platform.

"Not only do we have the knowledge of BEA's products, we have an understanding of how to best implement the technology with existing systems, and what additional products will complement BEA's technology. We can also help our customers stay current with licensing renewals and support contracts," added Blais. "While BEA is actively pursuing large contracts around the world, Locus Systems is focused on delivering BEA to small, medium and large organizations within Canada, along with our local service and support."

Locus Systems serves a variety of sectors, including government and financial institutions, insurance, manufacturing, real estate, and transportation and logistics organizations. Locus implements a unique project management process that enables organizations to increase efficiency, align business objectives and implement the appropriate technology to support business initiatives. The company has been recognized as one of the top 100 Canadian IT professional services companies.
