FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Free DCS Migration Flash Diagnostic from MAVERICK Technologies

COLUMBIA, Ill. (May 1, 2012) - MAVERICK Technologies, the largest independent systems integrator in North America, is now offering a complimentary flash diagnostic for manufacturers struggling with the need to upgrade their distributed control system (DCS) technology. The flash diagnostic includes a phone consultation with a MAVERICK technical expert and a custom, confidential report - a combined estimated value of $2,000.

"We're offering our advice for free, simply because we want every manufacturer to understand what's possible for their business through DCS migration," said Matt Sigmon, director of DCS Next, MAVERICK's results-focused, turn-key approach to DCS migration. "Most manufacturers feel like they can either keep patching their old DCS or pour money into a new one that might not deliver. But there is a third option - using DCS migration as an opportunity to advance and become truly agile."

During the phone consultation, participants will speak to a technical expert about their operational challenges, any control system issues and their DCS technology options.

"This isn't a sales call," Sigmon said. "It's the chance to talk one-on-one with a top specialist here at MAVERICK. We know choosing a new DCS platform is a big decision, and we want to help manufacturers weigh all their options."

The confidential report provides a clear understanding of each manufacturer's current situation, along with steps for moving forward with the DCS migration. Participants will feel no obligation to use MAVERICK's services for the actual migration.
