NaviSite Upgrades Oracle Systems for MaineGeneral Health

NaviSite Prescribes PeopleSoft to Improve Health Care Organization's Operations

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a leading provider of application solutions, hosting and content delivery services, today announced that NaviSite was chosen to migrate MaineGeneral Health's systems to Oracle PeopleSoft. MaineGeneral Health, the parent corporation of a network of acute care hospitals, physician practices, rehabilitation centers, long term nursing care, and assisted living and retirement communities, selected NaviSite to deploy a world-class financial and materials management system using PeopleSoft applications. As a growing organization with 578 beds and 415,000 outpatient visits per year, MaineGeneral Health needed a system overhaul in order to implement business best practices and streamline operations.

"Previously, our employees were overloaded with inflexible software and reporting tools that weren't able to meet the unique challenges facing our complex health care organization," said Sheila Nielsen, Information Technology Officer at MaineGeneral Health. "We chose to work with NaviSite because of their deep PeopleSoft expertise and experience maximizing health care-specific applications. The NaviSite team delivered on their promises and always worked with our business goals in mind."

Six onsite consultants and offshore technical resources worked with a MaineGeneral Health team to implement business best practices throughout each of the organization's business units. By integrating PeopleSoft with existing systems and automating key business transactions, NaviSite increased organizational efficiency and converted several paper documents to electronic versions, including invoices, purchase orders and shopping guides. In addition, the PeopleSoft system improved MaineGeneral Health's online requisition entry, electronic requisition approval workflow and electronic invoice approval workflow, while providing validation for general ledger accounting. Following the implementation, reporting functionality greatly improved and employees now have easier access to information.

"NaviSite's Professional Services team has years of experience working with health care organizations to manage complex and mission-critical systems," said Nasir Cochinwala, Senior Vice President of Professional Services at NaviSite. "It was important that we work hand-in-hand with MaineGeneral Health to make direct, meaningful changes that would lead to increased efficiencies and in turn, better patient care. Together, our teams were able to seamlessly transition to the new system without losing any productivity."

NaviSite Professional Services helps organizations maximize their enterprise application investment through industry domain expertise and global delivery capabilities. NaviSite specializes in implementation and hosting services for the Oracle product family, with particular emphasis in Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, Siebel Analytics and Fusion Middleware.
