XLReporter, Automate your reports.

WALPOLE, MA. September 13, 2005 SyTech Inc., the leading provider of automated report generation and data analysis software, today announced the re-branding of its flagship product XLReporter as WizReport XL for Axeda Systems, the world's leading provider of Device Relationship Management (DRM) and supervisory, control and data acquisition (SCADA) software and services.

"We are extremely proud to have representation by an organization with the reputation of Axeda. Their partnership with us is a solid endorsement of the value that our products bring to applications requiring automated reporting or data analysis," stated Peter Kaprielian Ph.D., President and CTO of SyTech.

"The addition of WizReport XL to our Axeda Supervisor family of software products reinforces our commitment to making Wizcon the leading product in its markets, thanks to our strategy of technology innovations and introductions of high-value complementary products" states Chris Guers, General Manager of Axeda's Industrial Automation business unit. "This addition will give us a strong competitive edge in markets that require reporting as an integral part of their business."

Emmanuel Vitrac, Marketing Director at Axeda, says "WizReport XL will be our primary solution for any application involving compliance, maintenance, production or performance reporting. With Microsoft Excel at its core, a native historical interface to Wizcon, standard interfaces such as OPC and ODBC, advanced automated scheduling, Web publishing, PDF conversion and emailing, WizReport XL makes light work of the most complex reporting requirement."

Based on the powerful calculation engine and familiar environment of Excel, WizReport XL is the report writer of choice for Wizcon. It is designed specifically for Axeda customers in markets with exacting reporting requirements such as building automation and facility management, cooling & refrigeration, water & waste, power & energy and large infrastructure management. Companies in these markets increasingly rely on professional reporting and analysis tools for more efficient asset utilization, energy usage optimization, or simply for regulatory compliance.

With WizReport XL's intuitive point-and-click configuration, anyone can easily create colorful reports from real-time data in a matter of seconds, or interface to the leading historians and databases and make drill-down, summary and utilization reports. Reports are either automatically created in the background without Excel running or on-demand from interactive user displays. Completed reports are then distributed via web pages, networked printers, PDF files, and/or email. The software will even manage a reporting website, such as an intranet, with daily/weekly/monthly updates, automatically and securely.
