WebCensus Tops Desktop System Management Category Based on Ability to
Inventory PCs Instantly and Accurately Over the Web

Tally Systems today announced that its Web-based PC inventory service,
WebCensus (, has been awarded finalist status by
Network Computing for a 2002 Well-Connected Award in the category of
Desktop Systems Management. The product was chosen for its innovative
ability to gather crucial management data for saving money and managing
PC desktops by offering instant, accurate inventories over the Web
without the burden of installation, maintenance, or dedicated IT staff.

"This positive recognition for WebCensus by the editors of Network
Computing highlights the strength of the hosted-application model in
providing high-value services at a low cost," said John Mahon, Vice
President EMEA, Tally Systems. "At a time when organisations are
looking to maximise the value of their IT investments, WebCensus offers
cost savings, infrastructure efficiency, and improved business
effectiveness. WebCensus applies the best practices to the IT value
chain of process, technology, and people, which we are very pleased to
have recognised by this award nomination."

This year, the winners of the Network Computing Well-Connected Awards
will be revealed at a gala event held on the evening before one of the
industry's largest trade shows, NetWorld+Interop 2002 in Las Vegas. All
Finalists will be highlighted in the 13th May issue of Network Computing
and also on Network Computing Online at .

Tally Systems WebCensus delivers a fast, accurate hardware and software
inventory with a unique web-based service that requires no installation
or management, and uses Tally Systems patented Census Recognition
Technology(tm) at its core. As a hosted service, WebCensus removes the
burden for managing the complex software installations and upgrades of
other complex management tools. The data returned from WebCensus is
crucial to managing software licenses, avoiding audits by the BSA or
FAST, planning for changes in Microsoft licensing, and managing hardware
and software migrations.

"No other annual awards program in the industry uses hand-on evaluations
to choose its winners," said Fritz Nelson, Publisher of CMP's Network
Computing. "Our editors worked at length to research and test the best
offerings in the enterprise arena. Being named a Well-Connected Award
Finalist is a true reflection of product quality rather than merely
product popularity or marketing effectiveness."
