Aviation Security Device Leader to Use Hyperion Software to Manage Expansion Plans

April 22, 2003 – InVision Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: INVN), the leading provider of explosives detection systems (EDS) for the aviation security industry, has chosen Hyperion (Nasdaq: HYSL) Business Performance Management software to provide business insight that fuels its global expansion. Hyperion’s software enables InVision to create consolidated, updated views of information across different operational units, giving executives the insight to make business decisions that advance the company’s growth plans.

InVision develops innovative technologies and sophisticated screening systems for a range of applications. As it expands globally and brings new products to market, the company needs a solution to extract and analyze information from disparate sources. With three subsidiary companies operating in different parts of the world, InVision chose Hyperion’s comprehensive Business Performance Management software for its sophisticated global financial consolidation, regulatory reporting and analysis capabilities.

“We want to drive intelligent, profitable decisions,” said Don Francis, chief information officer for InVision Technologies. “We see the Hyperion software as a major breakthrough. It gives us a single version of the truth to guide performance across the enterprise. Instead of seeing information several weeks after the quarter closes, we want the CEO and other executives to have the information on a daily and weekly basis, enabling us to react quickly to changes.”

Nazhin Zarghamee, chief marketing officer for Hyperion, said the software engages employees, giving them a sophisticated, uniform, secure way to develop operational plans and meet corporate goals.

“Hyperion Business Performance Management software brings an improved approach to managing global performance and expansion for InVision Technologies,” she said. “With this software, employees throughout the organization can enter data directly into one standardized system online, creating a unified view of financial and operating performance. Plus, executives can evaluate the information, drill down into details to gain insight and produce actionable plans that guide the organization to success.”
