I have a number of them as well. When the best construction software package
(McCosker/Trueline) was acquired by Explorer several years ago, the same
promise of continuing development was made.

The only "enhancements" made, however, were the ones mandated by the
government for payroll and 1099's.

Looks like JD Edwards is the last man standing in the iSeries construction
software space.

Explorer Welcomes Computer Guidance Clients

Explorer Software Group would like to welcome you to the Explorer family. On
January 31, Explorer signed a definitive agreement to purchase Computer
Guidance Corporation with the purpose to enable the continuous growth of
Computer Guidance's solutions and services while enduring our strategic
growth plans in the North American construction market.

Who We Are

Explorer Software, a global company, with offices in North America, United
Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, and Australia, was founded in 1984 in
Vancouver, Canada with a focus on software development for the
heavy/highway/construction markets. With the acquisition of additional
software technology for the general construction, homebuilding, and
subcontractor markets, our family of products has expanded to support the
needs of construction companies of all sizes and specialties - from single
offices to large enterprise operations.

The Computer Guidance acquisition is our thirteenth construction software
acquisition since 2004 and it reinforces our ongoing commitment to growth,
stability and our contractors.

Business as Usual and Better!

We are committed to providing you with the best possible support. Our
business philosophy sees customer service as key to our success. We are
focused on serving you, and therefore, the customer-facing Computer Guidance
employees, including account management, application support, professional
services and technical services will remain in place to support you. In
addition, the Computer Guidance development team will remain in full force
to further develop and maintain the eCMS product. This means that as our new
clients, you will immediately receive knowledgeable and friendly customer
service from the same staff you have been working with.

"We are very excited to be part of the Explorer family, a larger global
company, where we will continue to develop new and exciting features that
strengthen the position of our eCMS solution. With Explorer's financial
strength and wide portfolio of construction software solutions, Computer
Guidance will have access to additional resources and experience ensuring
our clients continue to receive the very best solutions and service." - Mike
Bihlmeier, President of Computer Guidance

As the market leader delivering construction software solutions worldwide,
Explorer Group is committed to serving this market and the acquisition of
Computer Guidance further demonstrates that commitment. As a result,
Computer Guidance customers will not only be getting uninterrupted customer
care and support, but will also be receiving guidance and tools to take
their support to the next level.

A Commitment to Your Future

As a new Explorer customer, you may be concerned about the future of the
Computer Guidance eCMS product. We would like to assure you that we are here
for the long term and we will continue to develop and support your eCMS
product. Explorer will continue to invest in the development and delivery of
Computer Guidance eCMS ERP solution and will not be asking you to upgrade or
change your solution to Explorer. In fact, the Computer Guidance team will
now have access to additional resources to further develop the eCMS
construction ERP and improve the delivery and service of this solution.

Computer Guidance has been strategically focusing its development efforts to
provide its customers with advanced business intelligence capability,
enriched functionality, and enhanced accessibility to these applications
that are built on the solid foundation of the eCMS database. The
browser-based eCMS solution powered by an industry-leading business
intelligence dashboard and reporting capability as well as its mobile and
self-service applications are true testaments of these efforts and we are
excited to support them moving forward. In addition, both companies see
great opportunity to continue delivering cloud-based solutions in the future
and we remain dedicated to contribute to these initiatives. We believe that
by combining our existing technologies with Computer Guidance's current
solution and its near-term product roadmap, we are solidifying our growth
and stability for many years to come.

We are excited about this acquisition and hope you are too. If you have any
questions, please feel free to contact us. To read more about our
acquisition, please click
