GroveWare Technologies' MobiTask Solution to Provide an

GroveWare Technologies' MobiTask Solution to Provide an Inspection
Reporting Tool to the Largest Independent Wood Products Inspection
and Testing Agency in the U.S. 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 10/09/12 -- GroveWare
Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB:GROVD) and Conyers, GA based Timber Products
Inspection Inc. (TP) have concluded a contract to install and
implement GroveWare's MobiTask(TM) inspection software designed to
streamline its inspection process, enhance quality assurance through
reduced data error, and improve the timeliness, while reducing the
costs, associated with its inspections reporting. TP learned about
the solution from its representative from Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ)
(NASDAQ:VZ), GroveWare's largest channel partner. 
TP completes inspections for the Chain of Custody Certification under
the Sustainable Forestry Initiative sponsored by the National Home
Builders` Association. The program tracks certified wood fiber
through the different stages of production to the end user and
promotes sustainability of the forest products we use every day while
providing the consumer with assurances that the forest based
materials they buy are from legal and responsible sources. TP's SFI
Chain of Custody program is accredited by the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI).  
Any company that processes or trades SFI-certified forest products,
including manufacturers of forest products, paper merchants,
converters, wood dealers, wood yards, wholesalers, brokers and
printers can seek SFI chain-of-custody certification, a process which
is overseen by TP. TP also offers consulting for any green building
project (NAHB Green Building Standard, LEED, Energy Star, etc.),
performance testing, and verification services for the NAHB Green
Building Standard, a residential green building rating system.  
TP employs over 60 highly-trained inspectors who complete over 3,000
inspections a month throughout North America. The inspectors
currently complete their inspection reporting on a paper form and
submit inspections to the national office through the mail where the
data is then clerically transcribed and entered into a database. The
entire process is inefficient, costly and not environmentally
friendly. TP recognized that the use of paper-based inspection
reporting was 
no longer aligned with its long term goals of quality
control, innovation and environmental responsibility and began
looking for a solution that would facilitate the timely collection
and reporting of inspection results. 
After extensive consultation between GroveWare and TP, MobiTask
proved to be the ideal solution for TP's inspection process with the
full expectation that MobiTask would streamline its inspection and
certification procedures. MobiTask will provide the inspectors with a
means to complete and submit inspections immediately from the field
using standard wireless devices. The project will assist TP by
eliminating cost, reducing its carbon footprint, improving accuracy
and timeliness of reporting and creating an overall fluid inspection
"We are very pleased to be able to support TP in its commitment to
better serve its customers through the adoption of real time
inspection reporting using MobiTask and today's wireless technologies
and particularly gratified that MobiTask was found to be compliant
with TP's "green initiative", commented Harry Achkarian, GroveWare's
CEO. "We believe that MobiTask is readily adaptable to wide variety
of inspection, certification and licensing applications by both
business and government and TP is a great example of our solution can
be quickly and inexpensively deployed to benefit of all types of
inspection functions and agencies." 
"Working with GroveWare and their team has been effortless," comments
Linda Adair, TP`s IT Coordinator. "Their understanding of TP's needs
is unfathomable. TP sent over forms that field representatives use
and GroveWare, without any prior knowledge of our business, was able
to recreate these forms within only a few days. GroveWare has the
tools to make electronic reporting seamless. They are wonderful to
work with, easy to contact, responsive, understanding, and a true
pleasure to do business with. TP looks forward to the future
relationship with GroveWare." 
A MobiTask installation is comparatively inexpensive to set-up,
typically costing customers only a few thousand dollars for initial
design, configuration and integration and each user is then charged a
monthly fee by GroveWare for use of the software (depending on the
number of users and features selected). By comparison, custom-built
solutions can often cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of
dollars. The monthly subscription fees paid to GroveWare are almost
always offset by many multiples of operating cost savings which makes
the value proposition very attractive to prospective clients.
