Net at Work Expands Practice with Addition of American European Consulting (AECC)

New York (May 12, 2005) – Net at Work, a leading provider of integrated business technology solutions and a 2004 Best Software partner of the year, today announced it has expanded its practice with the addition of New York City-based American European Consulting Company Inc. (AECC), a Best Software Premiere ACCPAC consultant and solutions provider. The addition of AECC’s domain expertise and product knowledge will solidify Net at Work’s position as a Top Best Software Business Partner worldwide and further establish it as one of the region’s most trusted, full-service IT providers.

“Today’s announcement underscores our commitment to providing unmatched support to our customers across the Tri-State region,” says Alex Solomon, Cofounder of Net at Work. “AECC infuses Net at Work with a core group of highly accomplished IT professionals whose technical skills are matched only by their dedication to unwavering customer service. Indeed, these are the very characteristics that have driven our company’s rapid growth from the outset. We’re very excited about bringing Sandy Needham and his team onboard and look forward to providing AECC’s customer base with all the resources they need to support their business goals.”

Net at Work’s integrated solutions approach will enable AECC clients to realize extensive service and product improvements. As a Net at Work client they will gain immediate access to a range of complimentary services, including Network Infrastructure and Support, Information Security and Compliance Consulting, Web Development, and most notably, a guaranteed 4-hour support response time. Additionally, through Net at Work’s sister company, Docutrend Imaging Systems, they have the ability to seamlessly integrate document management solutions and networked office equipment (digital copiers) into their organizations.

“I have known the key players at Net at Work for some years and have long admired their stellar reputation as premier Solution Providers,” says Sandy Needham, Founder and Principal of AECC. “The merger is a big win for our customers, who will benefit from expanded resources, bandwidth, and diverse IT and business expertise. I look forward to being part of the Net at Work team and helping support our customers’ growth, today and into the future.”

Mr. Needham will continue on in a Management role with Net at Work, heading up its Client Care group, recently formed to ensure customer satisfaction and educate all Net at Work customers on its entire family of product and service offerings. His responsibilities will include customer management and satisfaction, technology consulting, and new opportunity development within Net at Work’s client base.

Founded in 1985, American European Consulting Company (AECC) is one of the leading providers of the Best Software’s ACCPAC product line, winning national recognition and, in turn, making its founder Sandy Needham a former Chairman of the ACCPAC Business Partner Advisory Council of North America.

Net at Work, which last year was recognized by Best Software as Business Partner of the Year for its ACCPAC product line, has been honored as a Top Worldwide ACCPAC partner for six consecutive years. Earlier this month, Accounting Technology Magazine’s annual VAR 100 list ranked Net at Work as the #1 exclusive Best Software Business Partner (Best Select) and #19 overall.
