      Asite signs new three year enterprise agreement with Laing O'Rourke

Asite has entered into a three year agreement with Laing O'Rourke based on
Asite's new user-based licensing model.  Laing O'Rourke, the UK's largest
privately-owned construction company, has been using Asite services since 2004
and under this new enterprise agreement will continue to expand its use of
Asite's Software as a service platform across its global project portfolio to
manage sourcing, collaboration, and electronic trading processes.

The new licensing model dramatically reduces the cost per project of the
services and encourages the proactive use of the solutions throughout the supply

Tony Ryan, Asite CEO commented 'We are delighted to strengthen our long term
partnership with Laing O'Rourke who are leading the way in construction
collaboration with the adoption of this new licensing model, which will make the
use of collaboration technology a given regardless of the size of the project.'

Laing O'Rourke Procurement Director David Whatham welcomed the new agreement
with Asite. He said: 'We are very pleased to have reinforced our relationship
with Asite who have demonstrated a consistent commitment to collaborative
working. As a group we look to build constructive relationships with our key
partners and, clearly, this affords us an innovative platform for the future.'
