ON Technology's advanced management solution to reduce
IT costs and increase customer satisfaction
MA (October 10, 2002)- - ON Technology Corporation
(NASDAQ:ONTC), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure
management solutions, today announced it has received
its 100th new European customer order this year from
Switzerland-based Siemens Transit Telematic Systems
AG. The company also announced that it was named winner
of the "Best Windows 2000 Third-Party Product"
category by the Institute for International Research.
ON Technology has had strong success penetrating a range
of European industries including financial services,
manufacturing, media & entertainment, and the public
sector. These customers chose ON Command CCM® to
enhance the ongoing management of their mission-critical
applications and security updates, to automate infrastructure
upgrades to Windows® 2000 and Windows XP, and to
implement one-click disaster recovery for enterprise
For example, the Northern German
Broadcasting Association (NDR) is using ON Command CCM
to manage and deploy Microsoft Windows XP, along with
business-critical broadcasting applications, to 5,000
PCs in five separate locations across Germany. According
to Frank Cordes, Project Manager for NDR, the ON management
solution reduces the company's overall IT costs while
improving service quality and operational security.
Furthermore, ON's automated inventory solution provides
additional savings by monitoring actual end-user software
usage in order to minimize software licensing costs.
Unlike conventional management
solutions that can only be used to deploy applications
and content, ON Command CCM is the only enterprise-class
system that offers end-to-end lifecycle management including
unattended operating system deployments and disaster
recovery. ON Command CCM also allows globally-distributed
enterprises to manage all of their workstations from
a single centralized console, including WAN-connected
remote or mobile workstations as well as LAN-connected
systems in corporate facilities.
Chairman, President and CEO Robert
L. Doretti commented, "Europe has always been an
important part of our business and we are particularly
pleased by the new and increasingly large orders from
customers in some of our fastest growing markets. We
have also seen an increase in customer orders from partners
and resellers, specifically from our strategic partners
in Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Our European
success, and our growth in North America, has us well
positioned for continued revenue growth during 2002."
ON Command CCM was also named 2002
winner of the "Best Windows 2000 Third-Party Product"
category by the Institute for International Research.
The Institute sponsors an NT Forum and annually recognizes
innovative products that have made a significant impact
on IT administration. This year, ON Command CCM was
chosen for its high customer satisfaction, rapid implementation
cycle, and innovative capabilities for centralized configuration
