PeopleSoft Enterprise Consulting Veteran to Lead Apex IT's Fast-Growing PeopleSoft ERP Practice

Ten-Plus Years in Financial and Supply Chain Management Strengthen Firm's ERP Leadership

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2007 -- Apex IT -- one of the nation's leading Oracle Corporation (Oracle) systems integration partners -- announced today that PeopleSoft Enterprise consulting veteran John Heinel will lead the firm's fast-growing PeopleSoft ERP Practice. In making the announcement at the Oracle Applications User Group (OAUG) Collaborate '07 meeting in Las Vegas, Apex IT CEO Eric Steege said, "John's 10-plus years of PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management and Supply Chain Management consulting experience complements our deep Oracle E-Business Suite ERP and core PeopleSoft CRM expertise."

Heinel, who is presenting "Long-Term Order-to-Cash Success Through PeopleSoft ERP" at Collaborate '07, most recently led PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management and Supply Chain Management implementation projects for a Chicago-based consultancy. Mr. Heinel's skills in PeopleSoft application strategy development, system analysis and design, and system integration and implementation, are rooted in real-world experience: over the past 10 years, he has led multiple mid-scale to large regional and international PeopleSoft Enterprise 8.x application implementations, both as a consultant and as a client project lead. In addition to his application implementation work, Heinel has helped several customers through ERP vendor selections, software evaluation projects, and prototype development engagements.

"I am extremely enthusiastic about joining a firm that has such a great reputation in the greater Oracle applications community. Apex IT worked hard to establish its reputation as Oracle's 'go to' PeopleSoft CRM partner. I'm confident that we have the people, approach and methodology on the PeopleSoft ERP side to achieve the same."

Apex IT's new PeopleSoft ERP Practice director holds a master of science degree in management information systems, a bachelor of science degree in management from Northern Illinois University and a project management certificate from Loyola University.
