The EN ElectronicNetwork AG Implements IBS Solution for Traceability

HOEHR-GRENZHAUSEN, GERMANY--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - IBS AG, a leading provider of compliance and quality solutions, will implement its MES system and traceability solution for EN ElectronicNetwork AG. The EN ElectronicNetwork Group, with its German-based production and development sites, is one of the leading suppliers of electronic manufacturing services in Europe.

This partnership furthers IBS's position as the leading provider of compliance and quality management solutions for the electronics industry, with customers that include EN and corporate electronics group TridonicAtco. EN ElectronicNetwork is currently installing the IBS solution at two facilities, but plans are underway to implement the solution at all of the company's seven locations throughout Germany.

Implementation of the IBS solution will help EN ElectronicNetwork standardize all quality planning and analysis processes in the manufacturing and mounting of electronic circuit boards. This will enable complete traceability throughout the product lifecycle, from the manufacturing serial number to the point at which the product is delivered to the customer. Increased transparency ensures that if defects are discovered in a finished product, manufacturers can pinpoint exactly when in the product lifecycle a problem occurred, so that they can quickly determine the root cause and prevent reoccurrence of the problem.

"When a customer submits a complaint regarding a product and the manufacturer is required to provide evidence that the particular serial number has been properly checked and approved, complete traceability in terms of the product liability laws becomes very important to us," explained Joachim Goeddertz, Chief Executive Officer of EN ElectronicNetwork AG. "Our other reasons for choosing IBS software were the integrated, complete solution for production, quality and traceability, long-standing product expertise, the sizeable market share and, of course, the high degree of transparency and investment security offered by IBS AG's stock market listing."

Volker Schwickert, Member of the IBS AG Board of Management, explained: "The decision made by EN ElectronicNetwork AG once again goes to show that IBS' tried and tested Best Practice solutions represent the greatest customer benefits in safeguarding and harmonizing the processes in question. This means that IBS has developed a major unique selling point for the electronics industry. Furthermore, we are looking forward to a productive and successful co-operation with EN ElectronicNetwork AG."
