Datawitness selected as an approved vendor by Ontario Provincial Ministry
Jul 30th 2007

Richmond, British Columbia – July 30, 2007 – Datawitness Online Ltd. announced today that it has been selected as an approved vendor by the Ontario Provincial Government Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to provide transcript maintenance and issuance services for the more than 500 educational institutions in the Province of Ontario.

Pursuant to the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005, Private Career Colleges (PCCs) must make transcripts accessible to students for at least 25 years after they leave the college. PCCs are required by legislation to transfer a student’s transcripts to an off-site facility, approved by the Superintendent of Private Career Colleges. Datawitness, along with Iron Mountain and four other vendors, have the exclusive rights to service this captive market.

"We are very pleased to be among such a select group of vendors to service this large and captive market. The PCCs are required to archive their records for at least 25 years and we strongly feel that Datawitness’s Online Records Management service is an excellent choice," said Jag Gillan, CEO of Datawitness.

Using Datawitness’s patent pending technology, customers can maintain their records online in an electronic format that is retrievable at any time. In addition to electronic storage, the records will be archived on non-electronic media (Kodak Film). This additional archival format ensures the records are impervious to electronic attacks and guarantees their preservation for over 100 years.

"The Datawitness Online Records Management service will give the PCCs the best of both worlds with immediate online access to records and an off-line copy kept on film in a government approved data center," said Gillan.

To view the approved vendors list, please see the Ontario Provincial Government Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities website: http://edu.gov.on.ca/eng/general/vendors.html
