Waterloo, ON - July 8, 2002: MKS Inc. (MKS) (TSE:MKX), a leading provider of tools to manage and control the software development process, today announced that eTrack Solutions, Inc., an information technology, Internet solutions and strategic consulting company, has chosen MKS Source Integrity® Enterprise and MKS Integrity Manager™ for its cross-platform software configuration management (SCM) and process and workflow management needs.

eTrack develops custom software applications to help its clients from manufacturing and services industries improve the productivity and financial performance of their business. eTrack also provides design, development and deployment services for a growing list of advanced technologies including Internet technology, databases and data warehouses, integrated voice and data systems and more. In order to be successful, eTrack must deliver customer-specific applications in a consistently predictable manner, on time and on budget.

eTrack required an enterprise software configuration management system that would enhance the productivity and quality of work delivered by eTrack project teams, enabling them to contend with increasingly complex development projects, often involving the integration of third-party software applications and legacy systems. MKS Integrity Manager provides eTrack's development team with process and workflow management capabilities enabling the company to define and enforce software development processes and manage complex change to software projects. MKS Source Integrity Enterprise provides platform transparent SCM to eTrack's local and distributed development teams, improving productivity and quality.

eTrack has implemented the MKS Integrity Solution™ on several of its largest custom application development projects, including a Product Cost Estimating tool for a Fortune 200 client that is also being commercialized for the general marketplace. The MKS Integrity Solution allows eTrack to manage multiple versions of both the commercial and custom production application for its Fortune 200 client, reuse code, and ensure the quality of eTrack's builds and releases.

eTrack has also implemented MKS Source Integrity Enterprise and MKS Integrity Manager at its parent company, Manchester Technologies, Inc. In this environment, a combined team of eTrack and Manchester software engineers are building and supporting productivity applications that help Manchester operate as a market leader in technical services and information technology solutions.

"eTrack is enjoying the benefits we expected from MKS's enterprise SCM solution including, improved quality of releases, an efficient build and release process, and correct delivery of software versions. The MKS Integrity Solution also effectively supports our CMM Level 2 process and our requirement for multiple release versions for each division of a client corporation and subsidiaries. We estimate it has improved productivity of our project teams by at least five to ten percent," says Tony Mazzullo, President, eTrack Solutions, Inc.
