CDW Corporation Standardizes on X1 for Enterprise Desktop Search Initiative

X1 Professional Client to search and federate content in Outlook and records management program

PASADENA, CA – October 23, 2006 X1 Technologies, a leader in secure enterprise desktop search, today announced that CDW Corporation, a leading provider of technology solutions for business, government and education, has selected the X1 Professional Client to increase user productivity in searches for valuable business records. CDW will deploy X1 Professional Client to more than 5,000 coworkers, enabling them to quickly find, preview and take action on all email in a single interface, whether it resides in their Outlook Inbox or CDW's records management system.

"With X1 we found a solution that not only could improve our email search capabilities but enhance user productivity and enable us to extend and combine search across our enterprise systems," said Rich Lauwers, Sr. Manager, Records Management at CDW Corporation. "We're anticipating an immediate payback due to time savings, improved customer service and data storage savings while maintaining our security model."

"We're delighted CDW has chosen X1 to accelerate its records management program," said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. "With the X1 solution, CDW will reduce the cycle time between a user's search and return to work and support their records management policy."

The X1 Professional Client will give CDW a 100-percent secure solution, delivering results by mapping to CDW's existing access permissions. Users will quickly be able to find email and files based on specific content and act on that content, easing compliance requirements. The integration with Meridio, CDW's records management system, will enable users to find records and move those items to the record management system easily.
