OneNeck IT Services Implements and Manages Global ERP Solution for Sunny Delight Beverages Company

Flexible, Scalable Solution Based on the Microsoft Axapta Application

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 13, 2005 -- OneNeck IT Services, today announced the completion of a successful implementation of a scalable global ERP hosting solution for the Sunny Delight Beverages Company (SDBC). Sunny Delight deployed Microsoft's Axapta application in North America and Europe. OneNeck will manage this new environment through a five-year contract with Sunny Delight.

SDBC's new business and IT solution is comprised of Microsoft's Axapta as the core ERP backbone application integrated with five other key applications. "Sunny Delight required an experienced IT partner to help design and implement a complex global IT solution to support all of our critical business processes. We needed a partner willing to design a tailored solution that could scale with us as our business continues to evolve and grow. OneNeck met that need," comments Greg Winholt, CIO and controller for SDBC.

Services in the ongoing outsourcing contract include data center operations, application and database administration, application development and functional support, WAN/LAN support, data warehousing, document management, mobile device support, phone system management utilizing VoIP technology, e-mail and desktop administration. OneNeck provides 24x7 coverage for all services in the contract from their state-of the-art data center located in Arizona.

"We are proud to be an integral part of the support platform for Sunny Delight's growth efforts," states Chuck Vermillion, CEO for OneNeck. "We often design and manage comprehensive IT environments, while our customers focus on growing their business." He adds, "We excel at listening to our customers' needs and designing a solution that scales with their growth. This translates to creating custom support solutions for each and every customer."

The Sunny Delight Beverages Co., was formed in the summer of 2004 from the juice drinks brands, purchased from Procter & Gamble®, creating an urgent need for their own business applications and IT infrastructure to operate as a stand-alone global business entity. Sunny Delight has significant operations in North America and Western Europe, and the international roll- out and support was a key requirement in their selection of an IT services provider.

OneNeck is one of the leading providers of hosting services for Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) and will be exhibiting at both Gartner's Midsize Enterprise Summit and SSA's Global Client Forum September 19-21.
