Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2000

IntegratorsOnly.com announced today that membership and site activity has continued to increase since launching in August of this year.

The channel service, exclusively designed for system builders and integrators, has more than 4,000 registered members who, based on their profile data, sell more than 204,000 systems per month. System builders and integrators register for the service at no cost, but must complete a detailed business profile to qualify.

"When we take a look at the profile summary of our members, it so closely matches the target of small-to-midsize system builders and integrators we intended to reach, that we're not really surprised that the interest level and activity on the site continues to increase," said Jim Niekamp, Director, IntegratorsOnly.com. "Our members look to us for builder notes, system reviews, marketing advice, and links to all the major manufacturers' and distributors' sites, as their white box desktop and server system sales continue to escalate."

Based on a recent Profile Report, IntegratorsOnly.com members:

-- Sell through a variety of ways including direct sales, storefront,
 e-commerce, telesales and catalog;
-- Generate the majority of their annual revenue from sales to
 small-to-medium-sized businesses and consumers;
-- Focus on local and regional geographic sales coverage for a
 customer base;
-- Build their own brand of desktop and server systems, yet nearly
 50% also sell branded systems such as Hewlett Packard, Compaq, IBM
 and others;
-- Provide a variety of value-add services, including service
 contracting, consulting, system building, and system and component
 distribution.


For further details on this small-to-midsize segment of white-box resellers, contact Jim Niekamp at 512/440-0497.

"Overall, the white-box market continues to grow, so IntegratorsOnly.com will continue to expand the types of services and information required to support the small-to-midsize integrator who has an enormous opportunity right now," said Niekamp.

IntegratorsOnly.com delivers product and service information, a compatibility lab, access to manufacturer and distributor information, drivers, distributor request-for-quote capability and more, from one location.
