St. Louis Cardinals Deploy E Solutions' Software to Scouts And Front Office Staff

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 15, 2004 -- The St. Louis Cardinals have joined an ever-growing list of Major League Baseball (MLB) teams to deploy E Solutions Corporation's ScoutAdvisor(TM) software system. ScoutAdvisor(TM) ( is a "one-stop-shop" knowledge management and decision support system built to assist professional scouts, player development personnel, GMs, trainers and other front office staff in making critical daily decisions. Up-to-date MLB transactions and daily statistics on all major and minor league players, along with the team's proprietary evaluations and other critical information, are synchronized and shared among various members of the organization every day. The main system is hosted at E Solutions' secure, tier-1 datacenter in downtown Tampa, Florida.

The Cardinals have begun implementation of the software and will complete deployment later this month. John Mozeliak, Assistant GM for the Cardinals, had this to say about the team's vendor selection: "The St. Louis Cardinals continually search for ways to be more efficient and productive. E Solutions has spent years of development time, which any organization can now take advantage of. In gaining the technology and support E Solutions offers, we are better prepared to handle the day-to-day challenges that we are faced with. The St. Louis Cardinals and E Solutions understand the many facets of baseball operations. The ScoutAdvisor system will keep us on the cutting-edge of technology and empower our staff to make better decisions."

ScoutAdvisor(TM) utilizes a variety of technologies including the Lotus Notes/Domino platform. The Lotus Notes architecture provides greater security through 128-bit encryption and access control functionality, which limits accessibility to information on a "need-to-know" basis. Over the last two and a half years the E Solutions' ScoutAdvisor(TM) system has hit a home run with the Oakland Athletics, the San Diego Padres, the Detroit Tigers, the Boston Red Sox, the Atlanta Braves and most recently, the Montreal Expos in preparation for their 2004 season. E Solutions is currently in discussions with other clubs as well.

"The business of professional baseball demands a decision support system that will provide the fastest, most effective, and most secure access to key information over the course of a season," said Michael Morizio, Executive Vice President of E Solutions Corporation. "With the acquisition of ScoutAdvisor, the Cardinals have elected to deploy the most advanced technology in professional baseball information management today."
