ATLANTA, GA  JULY 10, 2002  Statability, a U.S. company that provides Web-based,
multi-unit operations reporting, has teamed up with Databeacon, a Canadian
developer of data publishing, analysis and reporting software, to offer
Databeacon's software to Statability's global roster of hospitality industry
customers. The addition of Databeacon's technology allows Statability to provide
its reporting system customers with self-serve drill-down analysis on key business
trends in hospitality operations data. 

With the integration of Databeacon's advanced analytics, Statability's end users
will now be able to prepare powerful, personalized reports to better understand the
key factors that impact their businesses. These reports provide hotel and
restaurant managers as well as staff members at every level with actionable
feedback on progress and can highlight segments of the business that may need
additional training or support. Other reports compare business unit operational
results to specific goals of the parent company to challenge teams and keep score
of their progress against service-standard and financial objectives. 

"The addition of powerful, customizable analytics is an important step in the
evolution of the hospitality industry," said Andrew Coutts, President and CEO of
Databeacon. "Initially, it was sufficient for hotel and restaurant managers to
simply organize data and provide a system infrastructure. Then came canned,
one-size-fits-all reporting that ultimately was inadequate for the majority of
global hospitality operations. Statability has now taken a leadership role in
providing hospitality managers access to flexible, customizable data analysis and
reporting features that will help build better businesses, and ultimately, a
stronger hospitality services sector."

"We knew Databeacon's analysis tool was a perfect fit for Statability because of
its unparalleled ease of use and fast integration with existing data sources and
system infrastructures," said Statability's co-founder Michael Goldenberg. "End
users will now be able to optimize Databeacon's Web-based analytics to tailor their
reports and drill down to minute detail. This gives hotel and restaurant managers
the means to analyze operational data in a variety of ways and create personalized
views with little or no advanced training It adds up to tremendous value and
competitive advantage for Statability's customers."
