Spillman to Increase Target Market by Expanding Platform Offerings for Its Public Safety Software

LOGAN, Utah – April 5, 2004 – Spillman Technologies announces plans to include a Microsoft© Windows Server© 2003 operating system as an additional platform for their industry-leading public safety software. The additional platform will expand Spillman's addressable market to a wider range of public safety agencies.

With the development of a dual-platform application, Spillman will have a unique competitive advantage because our software will operate on either a UNIX© or Windows server,” said Chris Hellewell, Senior Vice President of Product Development. From the end user's point of view, the software will look and function virtually the same regardless of the platform.”

With the addition of the Windows Server 2003 operating system to their list of supported platforms, Spillman software will be available on IBM, Sun, and Intel-based servers.

For more than 20 years, our integrated solutions have delivered timely, accurate information to public safety personnel,” said Richard Spillman, President. Adding a new platform will be instrumental to our business of providing the most reliable, innovative public safety software and support services in the industry.”

Spillman is not new to the Windows development environment. For nearly six years, public safety agencies have been successfully operating an NT-based version of the Spillman software, specifically tailored to the needs of smaller agencies.

The company expects to release the Windows 2003 Server platform option in first quarter 2005.

Spillman Technologies provides a full range of software solutions for public safety agencies, including computer-aided dispatch, records management, mobile communications, jail management, fire/EMS management, and resource management solutions.
