MobileVillage Names CyberShift's Necho Expense Mobile Edition Best Enterprise Software for Expense Reporting

CyberShift Wins Gold Mobile Star Award for Second Consecutive Year

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - CyberShift, a leading global provider of workforce management and expense management software and services, today announced that its Necho Expense™ Mobile Edition has won a Gold Mobile Star Award™ from MobileVillage®, the 15-year leader in market development and news services about mobile technology, for best enterprise software for expense reporting.

The seventh annual Mobile Star Awards™ program honors and promotes the top companies, products, deployments, and leaders in mobile and wireless technology. Winners are chosen by subscribers to Go Mobile®, MobileVillage's free email newsletter sent to technology executives, mobile professionals, IT managers, developers, and top tech journalists.

CyberShift's Necho Expense Mobile Edition enables users to conveniently manage their expenses while on the road from a BlackBerry® smartphone device, thus reducing paperwork, improving data and reporting accuracy, and facilitating faster expense processing turnaround times. Managers can also approve or reject an expense report from smartphone devices including the ability to enter rejection reasons and comments. Necho Expense Mobile Edition users have secure access to information in real-time to help them perform productively and effectively, while adhering to corporate policies and standards.

MobileVillage Editor, Gary Thayer, said, "Despite the economic slowdown, recent studies have predicted minimal impact on the mobile and wireless industry. People have fallen in love with mobile productivity and entertainment products, and there's a real desire to discover and share the latest and greatest." He added, "This year we had a record 2,300 votes from MobileVillage readers who were eager to share their knowledge and recognize the top companies and products in the industry."

CyberShift Senior Product Director, Necho Expense, Craig Fearon, commented, "When employees are on the road and removed from their office, they need tools and solutions to help them be productive and perform better. Managing expenses is an extension of business travel and with CyberShift's Necho Expense Mobile Edition, road warriors can conveniently keep track of their expenditures anytime, anywhere, eliminating the pressure of creating or approving an expense report when they return to their office."

The unique, purpose-built design of Necho Expense Mobile Edition enables users to create or approve an expense report when they are not connected to a wireless network such as on a plane. Necho Expense Mobile Edition's robust functionality allows business travelers to create expense reports from corporate charge card transactions, including enhanced hotel folio data, as well as out-of-pocket cash transactions.

CyberShift is the only enterprise vendor in the market to leverage the BlackBerry smartphone platform to address two of the most commonly required applications for the mobile worker -- expense report creation and approval. Offering flexible deployment options, including both license fee and On Demand (Software-as-a-Service) models, CyberShift's expense and workforce management solutions are designed to meet the needs of mid to large sized organizations.

"CyberShift is pleased that its Necho Expense Mobile Edition has been recognized by the readers of Go Mobile, many of whom are leading experts in the mobile and wireless technology industry, for a second consecutive year. This type of industry acknowledgement validates the robust functionality, deployment flexibility and value of CyberShift's Necho Expense Mobile Edition," added Fearon.
