MINNEAPOLIS -- January 10, 2013

Exact, your trusted advisor and a leading provider of business solutions for
small- to medium-sized (SMB) manufacturing and distribution companies, is
announcing an addition to its Professional Services offering, the JobBOSS
Blueprint Implementation Service.

This service signifies a commitment by Exact JobBOSS to deliver the highest
quality products and services to leading manufacturing companies, and was
created to ensure the successful implementation and integration of JobBOSS
software solutions. The JB Blueprint implementation service is based on
standards established by the world-recognized authority on project management,
the Project Management Institute (PMI).

"Our customers, and indeed the market, recognize the unique skills JobBOSS
brings to shop management software," said Victoria McCartney, Exact JobBOSS
Customer Services Manager. "Offering this service to our customers
demonstrates our commitment to helping manufacturing companies optimize their
operations and rounds out our comprehensive Services offering, which also
includes consulting, technical support and robust, flexible training.”

Key Elements of JobBOSS Blueprint Implementation Service

  *Project Launch – A major key to a successful implementation is the support
    of senior management and the adoption by the company. The goal of this
    phase is to educate staff as to the benefits they will see by using the
    JobBOSS application.
  *Preparation & Planning – Like creating plans for custom orders, a good
    plan for implementing software is necessary. During the planning phase
    together we create a project timeline that meshes with the company
    calendar to minimize the impact on the business.
  *Data Prep – It takes a lot of information to run your business. This phase
    defines how the new application will integrate with the other systems that
    are being use to manage business.
  *Testing & Training – Good testing is a way to minimize issues on day one
    of a cutover to a new application. The testing phase is about testing the
    JobBOSS software, as it resides in your work environment. Lack of
    executive sponsorship is a leading cause for application implementation
    failures. The second is the staff not embracing the new system. This often
    is due to inadequate training. With good training, appropriate to the
    role, staff will feel comfortable with the new system.
  *Project Evaluation - Throughout the JB Blueprint Plan, there are mutually
    agreed upon checkpoints and milestones where we discuss the project
    schedule and status of each phase. This final phase is an effort to
    examine the overall project processes and celebrate the successes.

The JB Blueprint implementation service has received a strong responses from
new customers. The results are amazing, with each shop realizing how much of
an impact JobBOSS can make on their daily operations with proper
implementation and the increased visibility into their production line.
