S E A Consultants Inc. Spins off Asset Management Software Solution

Concord, NH -- February 28, 2005 – VUEWorks, Inc. today announced that it will operate as an independent software company providing map based, strategic asset management solutions for the municipal market and adjacent markets. David Paine, former Director of Product Development at Autodesk, Inc., is heading up the new company.

The company is taking over the development, sales and marketing of the product VUEWorks AM. VUEWorks AM combines an interactive map interface with powerful search features in a WEB browser to deliver the most intuitive tools available for finding and viewing spatial information. Designed with busy facilities and capital projects staff in mind, most find they can use VUEWorks with little or no training. Built with industry standard .NET open architecture, VUEWorks is designed to address asset management and other applications that benefit from GIS data. VUEWorks AM consists of a powerful suite of Asset Management modules for Water, Storm and Sewer management. Additional modules for Capital Planning and GASB 34 are also part of the suite.

“S E A realized in order to achieve its goals, VUEWorks AM would need to be independent of the engineering side of our business” said Fred Aufiero President of S E A. “Earlier in the year we worked with a team of experienced software executives to determine the best possible approach and the result was VUEWorks, Inc.”

After developing a plan for creating the new company, the next step was to find someone to lead the team. The company turned to David Paine, former Director of Product Development at Autodesk, Inc. Prior to Autodesk, David was co-founder of Softdesk, Inc., an AEC software company acquired by Autodesk in 1997.

"David’s experience in the Civil/GIS infrastructure software markets runs deep and he has led large scale development teams in the past", Aufiero said. “We are excited to have attracted this level of experience to lead VUEWorks to greater heights.”

David has more than 20 years experience in building scalable software solutions for designers, planners, engineers and municipal customers. David’s experience in building a company from the ground up will be invaluable.

"I look forward to taking this company to the next level leveraging my experience building software solutions to meet specific needs within the municipal markets," Paine said. "With our core team and first round of financing in place, we now have the resources to expand the business."
