DFC Software to be bundled on Electrovaya Tablet PC

ACTON, Mass. (July 2003) – Digital Facilities Corporation (DFC), the industry’s leading provider of roofing asset management software, and Electrovaya Inc. (TSE: EFL), the developer of the world’s leading Tablet PC “Scribbler,” announced they have signed an agreement to bundle DFC software on Electrovaya’s Scribbler Tablet PC as a package for specific user segments. DFC’s roofing asset management software includes InfoRoof® (IRP), which features an organized database system, roof maintenance program, and high-quality report generators. The Scribbler Tablet PC, powered by Electrovaya’s award-winning patented Lithium Ion SuperPolymer rechargeable battery technology, offers a run time of 8 – 16 hours, significantly longer than any other tablet PC on the market today. Combining the two technologies will make it easier for roofing contractors, consultants or building owners to collect critical data while on the roof or out in the field, and will save them the step of having to re-enter the data when they return to their offices.

“ An important part of any roof asset management program involves going up on the roof to perform inspections, examine problem areas or look over repairs,” said Steven James, president of DFC. “Now, through this agreement with Electrovaya, roof inspectors can capture important information on Scribbler tablets, thereby streamlining the process of collecting data and making it easier for them to maintain an accurate and current database.

“ The Scribbler’s long run time enables roof inspectors to be more productive than ever before. Roof inspectors no longer have to worry about the battery dying while they are up on the roof,” stated Dianna Doan, marketing coordinator at Electrovaya. “Their main focus is now reduced to getting the job done faster and more efficiently. The form factor of the Scribbler Tablet PC is the perfect complement to Digital Facilities Corporations integrated software solutions”

The agreement between Electrovaya and DFC is effective immediately, and the bundled offer with DFC software will be available in mid –July.
