OneNeck IT Services Awarded IT Vendor of the Year by Skanska USA Building

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 -- OneNeck IT Services today announced that Skanska USA Building Inc. honored the company with its Vendor of the Year Award at the Skanska IT Vendor Summit recently held in Charlotte, N.C. More than 20 vendors who provide IT services to Skanska were in attendance.

OneNeck entered into a managed services agreement with Skanska in July 2005 to provide a single point of sustainable support for Skanska's business-critical ERP application, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

Part of the Swedish-based Skanska AB global group of companies, Skanska USA Building Inc. selected OneNeck as an outsourcing partner after an eight-month selection process based on OneNeck's best-practices standards, and its capacity and willingness to be flexible in creating a solution. At the outset of the partnership, OneNeck was tasked with consolidating 20 companies that Skanska had acquired on a single JD Edwards ERP platform. That meant 550 users in 26 locations.

"OneNeck is a true partner, a shining star for Skanska and most deserving of our Vendor of the Year Award," said Chris Stockley, CIO, Skanska USA Building Inc. "Beyond OneNeck's technical expertise and consistently superior service, our partnership is grounded in sharing the same business goals. Our two organizations have become one -- you cannot ask for better IT outsourcing model."

"The success and satisfaction of our customers is the single most important objective for all of us at OneNeck," said CEO Chuck Vermillion. "We are honored as an organization to have been recognized by Skanska in front of our peers with this meaningful award."
