 DATASERV AND SOLA FORM STRATEGIC ALLIANCE
 FOR EXPANDED SINGLE-SOURCE RETAIL SUPPORT
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Dataserv, Inc. (Dataserv) and Sola, a unit of General Signal, announced today their intent to form a strategic alliance to provide expanded single-source support for retail multi-vendor environments.
 The alliance is expected to allow Dataserv to provide retail point- of-sales (POS) service support for Sola's customers nationwide. With one telephone call to Dataserv, retailers can contract for a service umbrella that covers computing operations, including Sola uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems and point-of-sale equipment.
 According to Lyndia Ardoyno, sales vice president of Dataserv's Retail Solutions Division, "Dataserv is committed to supporting the retailer's technology that is critical to customer satisfaction and ultimately the retailer's success. Strategic alliances with manufacturers like Sola who share this commitment expand our capabilities to provide quality, responsive support in a multi-vendor environment."
 "We are very pleased to be entering into a business relationship with Dataserv," said James D. Kimball, Sola vice president of marketing and sales. "Our agreement is expected to allow our customers to obtain power protection and service solutions for their retail applications."
 Sola is a leading manufacturer of UPS's to retail and non-retail customers. Dataserv would provide end users with first-year warranty service on specified Sola products, with continued maintenance service also available from Dataserv. Dataserv also would be working closely with Sola during new product introductions to provide improved service to retailers at the beginning of the product life cycle.
 "The alliance is important because it will provide one-stop shopping for retailers and will allow them the opportunity to extend their relationships with their vendors," said Jim Redburn, Sola director of retail sales.
 Sola, headquartered in Elk Grove Village, Ill., is a recognized leader in UPS and other power protection equipment. Sola, which is a unit of General Signal Corporation, manufactures in the United States and has facilities worldwide.
 A wholly owned subsidiary of BellSouth Corporation, Dataserv, Inc. is a leading independent supplier of computer and communications equipment maintenance services, parts and point-of-sale software. Dataserv provides customized maintenance support and technology conversion services to meet the retailer's needs. This includes nationwide maintenance support and technology conversion which involves system set-up and staging, site preparation, training, installation/deinstallation and integration of hardware with software.
