Avotus Announces Multi-Year Deal to Support BT Communications Infrastructure Outsource Contract.

TORONTO -- Avotus Corporation, the leading provider of communications expense management and e-Procurement solutions, today announced a contract with BT. The contract enables BT to employ Avotus ICM Usage Management, including traffic and call accounting, in support of a large end user customer.

Part of a larger engagement between BT and their customer, BT will initially deploy Avotus' ICM Usage Management hosted solution to 60 of their customer's locations worldwide. Within the next 12 months the installation will be extended to support 15,000 users and 136 sites. BT will be installing a dedicated circuit to directly connect their customer's European headquarters to Avotus in Canada in order to facilitate the polling data collection process.

As with most large global enterprises, the end user company has traditionally used a variety of call accounting solutions from multiple vendors. These disparate systems did not provide a consistent and unified view of worldwide corporate telecom usage. Avotus ICM Usage Management will collect call and traffic data from multiple sites and will generate local, regional and corporate-wide Web-based reports in a standard format. This information will be used by BT and their customer for overall account management.

"BT is a major force in outsourced telecom management services," stated Fred Lizza, Avotus president and CEO. "By combining BT's global reach and communications prowess with Avotus' usage data management, BT is able to offer their customer a fully integrated management package. We look forward to working with BT on additional contracts."
