Stuart, Florida, Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Systems Associates (ISA), Inc. (IOSA: OTCQB) an emerging software and services company focused on the DCIM market, announced today that it has agreed to enter into a joint venture with FacilityTeam, Inc. The joint venture will cover a number of strategic initiatives including the rights to purchase up to a 20% stake in FacilityTeam, software development services, and distribution rights to its facilities management software. FacilityTeam was recently formed to focus on providing leading-edge computer aided solutions for Facilities Management (FM). The FacilityTeam's principals are successful software developers and entrepreneurs with 20 years of experience developing solutions in this market space.
ISA has been working diligently for the past 10 months on transforming the Company from a Professional Services and Consulting organization to a software and integrated solutions provider. As a part of this agreement, ISA has agreed to partner with FacilityTeam to develop the next generation of its Asset Management software. The overall agreement will significantly strengthen ISA's capabilities within the data center market it is currently selling to, and open up a much larger potential market for its software and services.
The understanding calls for FacilityTeam to develop ISA's new data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software, custom interfaces to the facilities management software under development by FacilityTeam, and for a senior executive of FacilityTeam to join ISA's management team as its Chief Technology Officer. As an affiliate of ISA and a strategic partner, the companies are expected to cooperate closely on research & development, sales, and market development.
Adrian Goldfarb, ISA's President and COO said, "I am delighted that FacilityTeam has agreed to engage with us. I am particularly excited that we will be taking a minority ownership in FacilityTeam since it will closely align the two organizations with the possibility of additional earnings per share for our stockholders".
Joe Coschera, ISA's CEO also commented that he feels that ISA's future product strategy is in excellent hands with FacilityTeam. "I have worked with their staff and executives over the past several years and have been very impressed with the quality of the products they build and their attention to customer services".
Chris Dodds, FacilityTeam's President said, "I look forward to a very successful future for us with ISA as a stakeholder. I have watched them execute within their market and feel very comfortable that our individual strategies are well aligned for future growth of both organizations. As a side note, I am also happy to be joining ISA's management team to lead their R&D efforts".
The initial term sheet provides the framework for definitive agreements which are being prepared over the next few weeks. It is anticipated that the software development agreement will be in place by the beginning of November with the completion of the other agreements expected by year-end.
