Randolph County, N.C. Turns to New World Systems to Improve Productivity With Its Technology

TROY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 8, 2005 -- New World Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-wide software solutions for the public sector, announced today Randolph County, N.C., signed a contract valued at approximately $600,000 for New World's services and to license its integrated Logos.NET™ Public Administration suite of products on the Microsoft® .Net platform.

After 25 years of using a mainframe system, Randolph County moves ahead with New World to get the latest in local government software technology, including Logos.NET Financial Management, Human Resources and Payroll, and eSuite software to improve internal processes and citizen satisfaction.

"New World has helped local government organizations meet their goals through technology for more than 20 years, which was a key differentiator of the Company," said Deputy Finance Director Jane Leonard, Randolph County. "We wanted a company that focused solely on the public sector to help ensure our needs would be met, and New World met these requirements."

Approximately three years prior, the County conducted a technology study countywide to learn what software would make the largest impact. It was clear that system integration, real-time communication and reducing manual processes were the key features desired.

"We saw a number of software demonstrations, and we all loved New World's system," said Application Analyst Diane Mitchem, Randolph County. "Other vendor's software looked like modified green screens, while New World demonstrated a modern, browser-based solution that will help alleviate the learning curve for everyone. Also, the technology won't be obsolete in a few years."

A Microsoft Certified Partner, New World has committed the development resources required to build and deploy robust solutions designed for all sizes of government agencies. Using proven Microsoft .Net technology, Logos.NET was developed using industry standard Windows 2000 Server and SQL Server 2000 database. True to Windows technology, the customizable screens to full suite integration will provide government officials fast and easy access to information.

"The County looks forward to having a decentralized environment; we will reduce redundant data entry, have seamless communication between departments, and more importantly each department will know its real-time budget status," said Leonard. "We are excited to begin this project."

Randolph County provides services to approximately 130,000 citizens and supports a workforce of 765. New World and the County are looking to begin implementation immediately.

New World Systems, a public sector software company in Troy, Michigan, has provided software solutions for public safety and public administration organizations since 1981. The Company designs, develops, markets, supports and implements its fully integrated Aegis® Public Safety Suite for Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS and its Logos® Public Administration Suite for local governments.
