Clearwell Systems Named As Finalist In 2006 American Business Awards

Email Intelligence Pioneer Recognized as Candidate for Best New Product

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—May 16, 2006—Clearwell Systems, Inc., a pioneer in the emerging Email Intelligence market, today announced it was named a finalist in the Best New Product or Service category by The 2006 American Business Awards (better known as the Stevie® Awards). The Fourth Annual Stevie Awards will be presented on June 12 in New York City.

Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” by the New York Post (April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in the workplace. Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners this week from among the Finalists. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in March through early May.

Clearwell Systems is competing in the Best New Product or Service category with the industry’s first Email Intelligence solution, the Clearwell Email Intelligence Platform™. More than 1,500 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Best Overall Company, Best Executive, Best New Product or Service, and Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program.

The Clearwell Email Intelligence Platform discovers, extracts and delivers an unprecedented level of actionable intelligence from corporate email systems. Unlike keyword search tools that simply index and provide access to historical emails, Clearwell analyzes the unique properties of email and applies proprietary, patent-pending linguistic and statistical analysis algorithms to deliver the following unique capabilities: single view into all email data repositories, discussion threads, email relevance ranking, group-to-group communication flows, dashboards and analytics, and quick and easy implementation.

“The rapid growth of email as the de facto system of record, coupled with increasing regulatory investigations and corporate litigation has created an urgent need for Email Intelligence,” said Aaref Hilaly, president and CEO of Clearwell Systems. “Several Fortune 500 companies have deployed these solutions to streamline and automate E-Discovery, and reduce associated costs and risks. We consider acknowledgement from the American Business Awards to be an important honor and endorsement of the Email Intelligence and other markets, and we congratulate the companies that have been selected as finalists.”

"Being named a Finalist in The American Business Awards is an important achievement,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."
