PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2002

Bonzi Development Group (Bonzi), a leading Portland-based engineering and web development firm, today announced the launch of several web sites using their SAM(TM) (Scheduling and Activities Manager) web-based organization and content management system.

Bonzi developed and hosts a SAM(TM) web site and online registration module for the Willamette United Soccer Club (www.wusc.net). For the Lake Oswego Soccer Club (www.losc.org), Bonzi linked their SAM(TM) online registration module to the existing web site. In addition, Bonzi deployed SAM(TM) online registration and online store for the Utah Youth Soccer Association in Salt Lake City (www.uysa.org/registration.html).

"We will register nearly 30,000 players online in the next few months. We looked at many options and chose the SAM(TM) product for its dependability, accounts receivable tracking and high level of customer support," said Brett Davis, Executive Director, Utah Youth Soccer Association.

Lake Oswego Soccer Club Board member, Larry Lopardo stated, "All I can say is 'WOW.' SAM is incredible and continues to amaze me. Bonzi's outstanding customer service and devotion to their clients' requests has made our club extremely pleased."

Janet Thrall, Club Administrator, Willamette United Soccer Club said, "Having all our club communications and data in one place and so accessible is the answer. The integrated functions of SAM(TM) eliminate the need for multiple follow-up steps when dealing with transactions and registrations. SAM(TM) makes me a better administrator!"

"As a result of our vast experience in sports management applications, Bonzi designed SAM(TM) to manage organizations large or small. The ability to access SAM's vast multi-functions, on a single web site, is the answer for many local clubs," stated Amy Pate, Bonzi President.

"The SAM(TM) design is practical and its user interface is familiar to computer users. There are no special rules or languages to administer the application. Subscribers like the Willamette United and Lake Oswego clubs choose as many features as they need and can quickly add modules as their needs grow," added Pate.

"The SAM application manages the essential elements of an organization 'all in one place,'" said Shepard Tucker, Bonzi marketing director. "With SAM(TM), groups can manage the countless changes and communication challenges associated with leagues, teams, registration and communications easily and affordably."

A typical SAM website features: easy navigation to organize and define your group; password and access security for administrator; secure group pages and user-defined and multiple-event online registration. SAM also gives the user the ability to: open and close your own online registration; search, edit and filter website participants; create your own reports; publish announcements; send group email; edit and publish a calendar and manage your own online store.

A demonstration of a SAM(TM)website can be viewed at www.wusc.net. Screen shots of the SAM(TM)content management application can be viewed at www.yoursam.com.
