WALTHAM, Mass. -- April 23, 2013

Telerik, provider of software development, lifecycle and content management
tools and solutions, together with QUBA, a prominent Sitefinity Partner, today
announced FARO Technologies (NASDAQ: FARO) a leading manufacturer of 3D
measurement equipment and software, has chosen Sitefinity for complex
multi-language, multi-region B2B web presence. FARO Technologies and QUBA will
present their success story on the Telerik Sitefinity stand (E4025) at
Internet World April 23-25 at Earls Court, England.

Like many successful businesses, FARO Technologies’ web presence had evolved
bit by bit over the years. By 2008 the company had multiple websites using
different CMS systems. Keeping content in sync was a challenge and the company
quickly recognized, it needed a single website capable of delivering localized
content in 12 languages to 15 regions worldwide. The goal was to truly
maintain a single and consistent brand voice.

After initially working with a larger ECM vendor, the company realized it
needed a content management system (CMS) that was cost-effective, flexible and
easy-to-use. After an evaluation of several vendor offerings, FARO
Technologies selected Sitefinity CMS by Telerik. There were three key factors
behind FARO Technologies’ decision: value for money, end-user friendliness and
developer support.

“Overall, our evaluation concluded that the Sitefinity solution represented
better value for money for FARO,” says Erik Schradi, Senior Web Developer,
FARO Europe. “For developers, Sitefinity offers better support, its
architecture is close to .NET and it comes with built-in support for Windows
Workflow Foundation.”

“When I was introduced to Sitefinity, I said ‘That’s easy – I can do this
myself without being a technician!’ Our marketing managers were up and running
with Sitefinity inside of an hour,” says Alberto Castiglioni, Marketing Team
Leader at FARO Europe.

“Our web presence is much more sophisticated. Feedback from the marketing
managers has been very positive and although it is too early to see concrete
results, we are confident that the new site will perform well. Early analytics
show that visitors are spending longer browsing the site than before,” says
Erik Schradi, Senior Web Developer, FARO Europe.
