Fortsum Business Solutions and the APCHQ reaffirm partnership



    QUEBEC, Oct. 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Fortsum Business Solutions Inc. (Fortsum
Business Solutions) (TSX Venture Exchange: FRT) is pleased to announce the
renewal of its fertile partnership with the Association provinciale des
constructeurs d'habitations du Québec (APCHQ). Building on past shared
success, the APCHQ and Fortsum Business Solutions have renewed their agreement
to make their respective expertise available to the construction industry
through joint marketing of custom high-performance software solutions. By
virtue of this agreement, other avenues are already being explored to improve
the service offer resulting from this strategic partnership.
    The APCHQ reiterated its confidence in Fortsum Business Solutions and its
satisfaction with the integration services provided by Fortsum Business
Solutions in implementing Microsoft Dynamics(TM) GP in its head office.
Fortsum Business Solutions estimates that the overall impact of these two
agreements will generate revenues over one million dollars for the Corporation
in 2008.
    "We have enjoyed a successful working partnership with the APCHQ since
the beginning of 2004 to facilitate the management of business and financial
data of construction businesses in Québec, whether it be by providing
efficient solutions to manage the employee payroll or supporting processes
related to preparing estimates, planning or monitoring worksite activities. We
are proud to have established and maintained a win-win partnership with an
association of the APCHQ's rank and standing. We prize our relationships with
such organizations as they allow us to both combine our expertise and know-how
with that of well established organizations highly regarded in their
individual industry sectors and effectively serve our target clientele," said
Fortsum Business Solutions' Vice-president-Strategic Partnerships, François
Paré.
    "The construction industry represents a vertical market in which Fortsum
Business Solutions has enviable expertise, which we intend to export outside
of Québec over the next few years," mentioned Denis Carrier, President and
Chief Operating Officer of Fortsum Business Solutions. "I would add that the
partnership with the APCHQ is wholly in line with our growth strategy as on
one hand it solidifies our position within the construction industry while, on
the other hand, it confirms our ability to accompany our clients throughout
the stages of their business lives by offering them the best suited solution
for their size and needs. This is an important advantage both for our clients,
who continue to benefit from our in-depth knowledge of their business, and for
us, as we maximize client loyalty," concluded the President and Chief
Operating Officer.
