E Team and COPE Solutions Partner to Deliver Emergency Management Software, Services to the Canadian Marketplace.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 24, 2003

E Team, the proven, market-leading provider of collaborative software for emergency and event management, and COPE Solutions, a crisis management consulting company, announced their partnership to deliver emergency management software solutions and consulting services to public and private sector organizations throughout Canada. The announcement was made today during the World Conference on Disaster Management 2003 in Toronto, Canada.

Under the terms of the agreement, E Team and COPE Solutions will conduct joint marketing and sales of emergency management software solutions and consulting services throughout Canada.

Over the past decade, Canadians, like Americans, have suffered significant losses due to natural and manmade disasters as well as infectious disease outbreaks, such as SARS and the West Nile virus. "These disasters represent a critical need for the crisis management solutions offered by E Team and COPE in the Canadian marketplace," said Lewis H. Stanton, CEO of E Team. "By combining the consulting expertise of COPE with E Team's proven software, we can offer Canada a comprehensive solution that will enable organizations to prepare better, respond faster and recover sooner from incidents of all kinds."

E Team has been proven time and again in significant U.S. disasters, including New York City's response to 9/11, the 2002 Arizona wildfires, and the State of Louisiana's response to hurricanes and the West Nile Virus outbreak. E Team's browser-based incident management solution delivers multi-agency collaboration and real-time situational awareness for decisive command and control. COPE provides organizations a true crisis management capability by focusing on crisis decision making, development and auditing of functional crisis command and control structures, and delivering operationally focused solutions for the most complex crisis management challenges.

"One of the key reasons organizations and agencies do not handle crises well is that they have a cumbersome command and control structure," said David J. Walters, vice president of COPE Solutions. "We selected E Team's emergency management software, which is based on the incident command system (ICS), not only because it offers the flexibility, versatility and ease-of-use our clients demand, but it has a proven track record that will ensure organizations have a powerful command and control structure in place. The E Team solution will enable them to respond to any incident which may affect them and not only survive, but emerge stronger from the experience."
