Best Software and Tax Compliance, Inc. Partner to Provide Comprehensive Software Solution to Customers

San Diego, California - December 26, 2001

Best Software’s Specialty Products Group today announced a strategic referral partnership with Tax Compliance, Inc. (TCI), a leading provider of property tax compliance software, to jointly offer products and services to their respective customer bases. The agreement designates Best and TCI as each other’s vendor of choice, creating a fully-integrated offering of TCI's Property Tax Management System (PTMS) and Best’s award-winning FAS solutions.

FAS, the leading fixed asset solution for mid-market companies, easily integrates with PTMS, a comprehensive, property tax compliance software system specifically designed to give companies complete in-house control over their real and personal property tax compliance.

"This agreement seamlessly brings together core fixed asset management and property tax compliance capabilities for customers seeking a robust solution that will help their business function more efficiently and cost-effectively," said Chris Donie, director of FAS product marketing for Best Software.

"We have been informally enjoying the fruits of our established relationship with Best for some time," said Scott Strauss, Director of Sales for TCI. "In fact, more than 10% of our current customers already use FAS."

Columbus, Ohio-based Safelite Glass Corporation, for example, uses FAS in conjunction with PTMS, saving the company valuable time and money, according to Craig Miller, senior tax accountant, Safelite Glass Corporation.

"We have eliminated manual calculation errors and reduced our preparation time by 50 percent,” said Miller. “PTMS and FAS enable us to complete returns in a timely manner and have also eased our compliance burden."
