Mainstream Software Climbs FM Market With Customer Win

CLEVELAND, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 27, 2006 --Mainstream was selected by Boddie-Noell Enterprises (BNE), one of the largest privately held companies in the U.S, to provide CrossForm software to manage their facility operations. CrossForm will be used to manage all of the Boddie-Noell Enterprises, most recognized by their number one enterprise, Hardee's restaurant.

Boddie-Noell covered new ground with the Hardee's restaurant when fast food was a new concept. When Boddie-Noell began in 1962 the staff consisted of only three people. Today, BNE has grown to employ over 11,000 individuals. Boddie-Noell is the largest franchisee of Hardee's, operating over 300 restaurants. Additional ventures include: Rose Hill Conference Center, BNE Land and Development, Texas Steakhouse, Café Carolina, BBQ & Ribs, Moe's Southwest Grill and The Highway Diner. Mainstream's CrossForm ASP solution improves management of BNE's 300 plus restaurant facilities and their valuable assets. BNE is currently enhancing their CrossForm application by adding CrossForm Mobile Tech, Mainstream's PDA based solution. Mobile Tech will enable BNE's 40 technicians to efficiently capture data while working offsite. Technicians will be able to synchronize to the CrossForm database to send and receive up-to-date work order information, streamlining BNE's operations.

"We have been extremely pleased with Mainstream Software, Inc.'s CrossForm ASP solution and the professional services they provide. On April 20, 2006 we replaced our current CMMS application with CrossForm. This conversion went exceptionally well. The application itself has proven to be very flexible and easily customized. Our dispatchers have made several comments about how user friendly it is to use. Prior to selecting CrossFrom, we looked at numerous other vendors' CMMS applications. CrossForm was the only one that met 95% of our requirements, budget included. We were somewhat skeptical of the results of their reference checks. They all gave them very high remarks for the application and professional services, on a scale of 0 to 10; they would get 8, 9 and 10s. To this date, I must say that their reference checks were very much in line. CrossForm is a very powerful CMMS application with excellent features and functionality," said Paul Davis, Facility Management Admin Manager at Boddie-Noell Enterprises.

"We are delighted to add Boddie-Noell to our client family. They are a first class organization whose commitment to success is evident. It was a pleasure to work with the project team. I look forward to a successful long term relationship between Mainstream software and Boddie-Noell," said Eddie Forse, Project Manager at Mainstream Software.
