DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Dean Evans & Associates (DEA) (, a leading provider of facility scheduling, office hoteling and resource management systems, recently concluded their second annual Event Management System (EMS) Corporate Summit. Held at the New York City headquarters of one the world's largest financial services companies, the event was attended by representatives from 25 industry leaders in fields ranging from law to IT consulting to corporate accounting.

"The Corporate Summit provides personal, immediate access to top executives within DEA, which is extremely valuable to Crowe as we make changes to our hoteling processes," said Sandi Heaney, an Enterprise Solutions manager for Crowe Chizek and Company LLC. "I've seen the new version of the EMS software due out in May, which has changes that were a direct result from last year's summit. It's very impressive."

Among the topics of discussion at the Summit were the challenges these organizations face in rolling out a room scheduling application to a global audience, and how the even greater flexibility in the latest versions of EMS simplify that task. "When you're operating offices worldwide, you have to address some very diverse facility scheduling and resource management needs," says Kevin Raasch, executive vice president of Dean Evans & Associates. "EMS products have always been flexible and scalable, but some of the advancements in the new versions had attendees really sitting up and taking notice."

As part of the two day summit, DEA President Dean Evans and other senior staff gave attendees a sneak peek at soon-to-be-released versions of EMS Enterprise™ and the renamed EMS Workplace office hoteling product. Also demonstrated were new interactive floor plan functionality and an enhanced scheduling kiosk program.
