XLReporter, Automate your reports.

FRANKLIN, MA. January 24, 2008 SyTech Inc., the leading provider of report generation and data analysis software, today announced a partnership with ELUTIONS to re-brand its flagship product XLReporter as Excel Reporter. The product provides the key layer of technology that enables automatic, background report generation using Microsoft Office Excel.

Excel Reporter is fully compatible with Microsoft Vista and all other Windows operating systems. Support for the Office Excel family has been extended to Excel 2007 using the new Office Fluent user interface. "We are proud to have been selected by ELUTIONS to provide their reporting solutions. 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 Excel Reporter to our product offering reinforces our commitment to making ControlMaestro the leading SCADA software product in its market, thanks to our strategy of technology innovations and introductions of high-value complementary products " states Chris Guers CEO of ELUTIONS Europe. "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 ELUTIONS, says "Excel Reporter 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 ControlMaestro, standard interfaces such as OPC and OLE DB, advanced automated scheduling, PDF conversion and emailing, Excel Reporter makes light work of the most complex reporting requirement. "

Based on the powerful calculation engine of Excel, Excel Reporter is designed specifically for ELUTIONS 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.

Within a matter of minutes, anyone can easily create informative reports from real-time data, or interface to the leading historians and databases to 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.
