Made2Manage Systems and LiveVault Corporation Announce Strategic Alliance

of Less Than $250 Million a New 24/7 Guarantee: Data Will be Immediately Recovered Following Any Type of System Disaster

INDIANAPOLIS and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Made2Manage Systems (Nasdaq: MTMS - News), a leading provider of comprehensive enterprise business systems for small and midsize manufacturers and distributors, and LiveVault Corporation, the leading provider of fully managed online backup and recovery services, announced today at National Manufacturing Week in Chicago a partnership that will give Made2Manage Systems' customers affordable data protection and recovery capabilities.

Using Microsoft technology and a SQL Server database, the Made2Manage® Enterprise Business System manages a manufacturer's entire business environment, from quote to cash. The Made2Manage Enterprise Business System contains mission-critical shop floor and customer data that demands state-of- the-art security. LiveVault is a fully managed, reliable service that automatically and continuously backs up server data via a secure Internet connection to an off-site Iron Mountain® (NYSE: IRM - News) vault. In the event of a system failure, virus attack, or wayward keystroke, LiveVault's services ensure that data can be quickly and easily restored. LiveVault replaces tape- based backup methods, which are cumbersome, error-prone, and create a window of data vulnerability.

"In an increasingly competitive industry, small and midsize manufacturers are investing in enterprise software to streamline operations and improve customer service," said Dave Wortman, CEO of Made2Manage Systems. "System downtime, even if only for a few hours, costs money. While many small and midsize manufacturers have the ability to restore deleted files and take necessary security precautions, they don't always have the time or expertise to ensure their data is protected under every circumstance, from catastrophic events like fires or power outages to minimal events like a deleted file. With the LiveVault/Made2Manage Systems partnership, our customers will have a state-of-the-art enterprise business system in conjunction with unparalleled data protection."

"A big benefit of Made2Manage Systems' partnership with LiveVault is that our customers are putting the responsibility of data protection into the hands of experts," said Abby O'Keeffe, product marketing manager for Made2Manage Systems. "We are proud to be able to offer our customers a 24/7 guarantee that their data will be immediately recovered and restored in case of a catastrophic event."

"Globally, as manufacturers continue to automate more of their processes, data is now, more than ever, their lifeblood. Manufacturing is a key new market for LiveVault, and our partnership with Made2Manage will allow our award-winning services to protect their data and let these companies concentrate on what they do best: manufacturing," said Bob Cramer, president and CEO of LiveVault. "We rely on our growing base of partners to bring our service to market-a service that eases IT pains for a broad range of vertical industries."
