TORONTO,  Feb. 5, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB:
GROV) has moved forward in the process of acquiring the Department of Defense's
Certification of Networthiness (CoN) for its flagship application, MobiTask and
eXFORMA for use in US Army.  MobiTask is Groveware flagship software for mobile
business process management (BPM) solution, designed to help organizations from
paper-based processes to a wireless tablet. The Networthiness Certification
program was designed by the DOD to manage risks associated with implementing
Information Systems that use Information Technology infrastructures within any
of the DOD's agencies. CoN is given after an assessment made based on security,
reliability, supportability, sustainability, and interoperability with the
organization's existing networks and IT infrastructure. The certificate is
required for all external software that is deployed on any of the DOD's agencies
including the U.S. Army.  

GroveWare has been working with the U.S. Army to acquire DOD's CoN as a stepping
stone to obtaining the U.S. Army's Certification. The process is necessary in
order to move forward in an initiative of the U.S. Army to implement MobiTask in
the Military Police on a reserve. This initiative will replace the current
paper-based reporting system with a tablet-based system that puts MobiTask in
the hands of MP in the field. The project is expected to be a major overhaul of
the reporting process in order to improve communication between the office and
the officers in the field, data integrity and wasted time spent on duplicate
data entry.

The Army MP has identified paper-based incident reporting as a strain in the
system. It is widely known that the reporting process uses a significant amount
of time in the officer's day that could be better spent in the field. The
duplicate data entry not only wastes time and incurs clerical costs, but often
the officer-generated written reports are illegible, resulting in data integrity
issues, as well as legal dispute and reporting delays. Many law enforcement
organization are looking for a secure a solution which would improve the data
integrity, eliminate duplicate processing time and expedite incident reporting
to court in real time. This is the pain that the U.S. Army brought to Verizon
Wireless who in turn brought in GroveWare as a solution provider.  

Verizon Wireless suggested GroveWare's MobiTask solution not only because it
will provide officer's with a simple interface for entering data in the field,
but also because the solution provides workflow capabilities and integration
with backend systems to eliminate duplicate data entry in the field. This will
be achieved by replacing the current paper process with MobiTask, providing each
MP with the ability to complete and submit reports in real-time from the field
to existing CAD system. The administrative personnel will be given access to the
backend system in order to approve and manage the submitted reports.

"We are excited to be working with US Army to help drive efficiencies, reduce
cost of operation and help the organization move away from paper forms use to
digital mobile forms," remarks  Hrair Achkarian, GroveWare's CEO, "the process
of getting Networthiness, is very important for Groveware in order to become
certified supplier to the Army. The process requires close collaboration with
the agency, we intend to work closely with the Army to ensure highest standard
of compliance!" concludes Mr. Achkarian.

GroveWare is looking to complete the Certification of Networthiness and Army
Certification within the next few months in order to move forward with the
Military Police project forward. There are 77 U.S. Army domestic reserves that
can immediately adopt the Military Police solution and this is only one of the
business units within the agency that has identified a use for MobiTask. A
combination of GroveWare's CoN and GSA Schedule will make MobiTask simple and
fast to procure as a Department of Defense agency which includes the U.S. Marine
Corps, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, National Guard, and U.S Coast Guard. GroveWare
has been working with Verizon Wireless to deliver Mobile solutions with Federal
agencies, and the Certification of Networthiness is completed, the partnership
will drastically increase its focus on agencies within the Department of
Defense.
