Two New Versions of Primavera(R) Contractor Simplify Construction Scheduling; Standard and Deluxe Versions Give Contractors and Subcontractors the Right Sized Tool for the Job

PHILADELPHIA—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aug. 2, 2006— Primavera Systems, Inc., today announced the release of the latest versions of Primavera Contractor, the only planning and scheduling solution built specifically for the construction industry. Primavera Contractor helps contractors and subcontractors build accurate schedules that are easy to understand and use.

    Primavera Contractor's new capabilities include:

    --  Project Kickstart(TM) Wizard - a step-by-step guide to
        creating an accurate project schedule to get projects started
        quickly. The wizard provides a library of options to help
        contractors think through project phases, plan resources and
        find out about obstacles early so that the project plan
        continues to run smoothly. Real-life construction project
        samples (residential, hospital, highway, building, etc.) are
        included. Customized templates make it easy to build a
        schedule faster.

    --  Easy-to-use features allow contractors to manage data better,
        go back to a previous step, transfer information with simple
        drag-and-drop capability, and combine schedule data from
        Microsoft(R) Excel using import/export.

    --  Progress Spotlight helps contractors get paid faster by
        submitting progress reports in just one step. The new Progress
        Spotlight and Baseline Maintenance tool also identifies
        upcoming tasks and if a project scope changes, the schedule
        adjusts automatically to match.

    --  Two versions are available to meet the specific needs of
        contractors and subcontractors:

        --  Standard - simplifies schedules for projects up to 750

        --  Deluxe - handles scheduling more complex projects up to
            2,000 activities

    --  Industry reports, forms and graphics for submittal to owners
        and prime contractors are easier to understand. The expanded
        Reports Wizard and superior graphics help contractors generate
        high-quality reports and great graphics quickly.

"Primavera is known for producing accurate schedules that contractors can rely on," said Fredric L. Plotnick, renowned scheduling expert and co-author of CPM in Construction Management. "Through its Standard and Deluxe versions, Contractor provides contractors and subcontractors in the field with a stronger tool that helps them better manage small to mid-size projects."

"Kickstart Wizard showed us step-by-step how to build our project schedule and make updates quickly - without extra paperwork," said Fred Zeitter, Senior Project Manager, A&E Construction, Inc. "That lets us focus on what we're here to do - deliver a finished building for our client."

"We are constantly finding new ways to meet the needs of the construction industry," stated Joel M. Koppelman, Primavera CEO. "Primavera Contractor simplifies scheduling for contractors and improves their overall project management process - helping them to be more successful in their businesses and deliver their projects on-time and on-budget while getting paid faster."
