Wonderware reaches milestone of 100 ArchestrA Certified System Integrators

LAKE FOREST, Calif., Dec. 10, 2007 -- Wonderware, a business unit of Invensys, today announced that it has achieved a key milestone for its ArchestrA Certified System Integrator Program by reaching a total of 100 companies with the addition of Tecnau Transport Division S.r.l. based in Florence, Italy. This marks a significant achievement in the success of Wonderware delivering solutions using its standards-based ArchestrA technology to customers around the world.

The Wonderware system integrator support strategy is a three-tier program that has been established to help end-user customers identify qualified system integrators to implement projects. Wonderware provides integration firms the means and incentives to invest in Wonderware technologies and help build loyalty for its products through successful application projects. The Wonderware system integrator community has more than 3,000 independent active companies.

The top 100 members of the ArchestrA Certified System Integrator Program have been certified by Wonderware because they have demonstrated exceptional technical expertise with Wonderware software solutions, delivered successful projects to customers and earned the special backing and support of regional Wonderware distributors.

"We are proud that this elite community has grown to 100 members," said Jay Jeffreys, marketing manager for Wonderware Solution Provider Programs. "Anyone who passes the online exams for these products certainly has earned the respect of Wonderware. This is testimony to the accelerating adoption of ArchestrA technology in the industrial marketplace in large part due to the hard work of Wonderware's world-class distributors who train and support our system integrators."

Wonderware works closely with its 3,000 independent integration companies to deliver completed solutions to end-user customers and develop projects that meet specific customer needs.

"Achieving 100 members for the ArchestrA Certified System Integrator Program represents an important Wonderware achievement both in terms of when and where it occurred," said Tony Bustamante, director for North and Latin American solution providers with Wonderware's Strategic Sales organization. "In one calendar year, the Wonderware ArchestrA certified system integrator community has doubled. Not only is the market rapidly embracing ArchestrA-based solutions, but the global community of system integrators recognizes the value of ArchestrA certification.

"In addition, the fact that the 100th ArchestrA system integrator is located in Europe is significant, since over the past year that region has experienced explosive growth in new ArchestrA certified system integrators and the subsequent increase in user adoption of ArchestrA-based solutions."

For integration companies that are part of the ArchestrA Certified System Integrator Program, certification means increased visibility and marketing support, greater involvement in Wonderware's product development process and enhanced credibility among their clients and p otential customers.

"ArchestrA technology allows even small teams to execute projects of huge scale," said Claudio Fiore, system engineer at Tecnau Transport Division. "Now, with ArchestrA certification, Tecnau can offer customers evidence of Tecnau's proven competence in Wonderware technology and enhanced collaboration with the Wonderware technical team, which delivers added value to the solutions supplied to our customers."
