TASC ANNOUNCES DOCUMENT IMAGING SYSTEM CONTRACT WITH THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

 READING, Mass., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- TASC (The Analytic Sciences Corporation), a subsidiary of Primark Corporation (NYSE: PMK; PSE), has been awarded a $2.5 million contract with the STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA EMPLOYMENT SECURITY COMMISSION (ESC). The commission operates 88 service offices with about 1,800 full-time staff. The contract is to develop an image-based application to assist in the quarterly collection of unemployment taxes for over 137,000 employers and 3.6 million covered employees.
 Under the terms of the contract, TASC will create and install a complete electronic document imaging solution for ESC which will incorporate Intelligent Character Recognition, a workflow system based on the TASC-Flow graphical workflow product and TASC's PictureCom data/image compression technology. The ESC accounting department will be able to view Computer Output to Laser Disk (COLD) records, retrieve image data from network accessible optical storage and convert paper into electronic image using TASC-supplied solutions for Fujitsu, TDC and Kodak scanners.
 TASC's Workflow Technology will be Key to Success of ESC Imaging System
 The ESC imaging system will use TASC-Flow, a fifth generation graphical workflow tool aimed at the mission critical segment of the workflow market. TASC-Flow contains three principal modules: TASC- Plan, a centralized, skills-based workflow control server; TASC-Control, which provides the workflow routing logic that is automatically derived from TASC-Plan generated graphics; and TASC-FlowSim, a workflow simulation which permits workflow design analysis and optimization prior to committing to production operations.
 "Using TASC-Flow, the Unemployment Insurance Tax Department will be able to completely design, develop and maintain their workflow application without third party assistance," said Charles Ormsby, vice president and director of TASC's image systems integration division.
