Symitar Selects CGS's VirtualEvents365(SM) Platform for its 2009 Educational Conference & Technology Expo

    NEW YORK, and SAN DIEGO, June 1 /CNW/ -- Computer Generated Solutions(R),
Inc. (CGS), a leading provider of software, outsourcing solutions and business
& IT services to organizations worldwide, today announced that Symitar has
selected the company's VirtualEvents365 platform as the framework for its 2009
Educational Conference & Technology Expo. Symitar, a division of Jack Henry &
Associates (Nasdaq:   JKHY), is the leading provider of data processing and
technology solutions for credit unions. The event, for users of Symitar's
Episys core processing platform, will be held August 26-27, 2009.

    "With money tight and travel budgets slashed, our credit union clients
needed a legitimate alternative to an in-person conference," said Symitar
president Kathy Hooker Burress. "By offering a virtual conference to our
clients, we're saving them both time and money, while delivering the same
great educational opportunity that we have for the past 25 years." Hooker
Burress added that because of the ease of attending a virtual event, she
expects more participants than ever before.

    "We knew going into this that the key to success was finding the right
virtual event platform," added Symitar marketing manager John San Filippo.
"The robustness and stability of the VirtualEvents365 system, the expertise
demonstrated by CGS staff, and stellar references all made CGS stand out from
the many vendors we evaluated." San Filippo noted that the virtual event will
include the three key components of Symitar's live events: top-notch
educational sessions, a number of social networking opportunities, and an
impressive exhibit hall filled with different types of vendors.

    CGS's VirtualEvents365 provides a web-based environment that enables
organizations to plan, promote, deliver, track and monetize a variety of
events virtually, including user meetings, conferences, job fairs, product
launches and training programs. "Symitar's selection of our platform is a
testament to our strength as the most scalable, robust and flexible framework
for virtual events," commented Michael Wilding, senior vice president of
technology solutions & training at CGS. "Leading companies in technology,
healthcare and financial services, as well as agencies specializing in event
management, have partnered with CGS to make more meaningful connections with
their target constituencies while greatly reducing the cost of engagement."
