Greenwood Village, Colo. - Feb. 15, 2013 - Ciber in the Netherlands was selected to design and
implement a new global enterprise resource planning (ERP) system at Flamco, a manufacturer of
heating, cooling, ventilation, and drinking water systems and one of some 500 companies owned by
the Voestalpine Group, which operates in more than 50 countries on five continents. The new system
- built on SAP(R) ERP applications - will replace multiple systems currently in use at different
facilities and thereby improve production efficiency. 

Flamco currently has 13 international sales offices worldwide and six production locations in the
Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and China. By deploying an SAP ERP-based system spanning
all locations, Flamco managers will gain enhanced understanding of critical business processes.
The new deployment will include the SAP ERP Financials solution as well as logistics and materials
management applications in SAP ERP. The implementation will make it possible, among other things,
for Flamco to manage resources more effectively by letting company managers know where stock is
available and who within the organization is involved in specific orders. Through enhanced
efficiency, the company expects to meet forecasted growth with current resources. The system also
simplifies management tasks for Flamco's IT department today while providing scalability that will
support corporate growth.

Ciber's role in the implementation includes developing the blueprint for the software roll-out,
which will occur on a country-by-country basis together with Flamco project members. Ciber will
provide support through local offices as needed.

"Ciber is among the best ERP providers in the Netherlands and has the necessary expertise in SAP
solutions to deliver good advice," said Martin Verdegaal, CEO of Flamco. "Ciber is an
international organization with great experience, good references and the ability to support our
local teams. That gives us confidence that Ciber is the right partner for the job."

Ciber Sales Manager Machiel Spruit said, "We are delighted that Flamco has chosen us. Building the
system from scratch - based on SAP solutions - and supporting the worldwide rollout is a great
opportunity for our specialists to utilize their knowledge and experience."
