AT&Ts Leading Application Services Capabilities Allow American Wood Moulding to Manage Its Business in a Cost-Effective, Flexible Environment

San Antonio, Texas.- AT&T, Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that American Wood Moulding, a premier provider of wood molding and millwork, selected AT&T to manage its SAP enterprise application. Todays announcement builds on news earlier this year of AT&Ts agreement with SAP America, Inc., under which AT&T serves as a preferred SAP hosting provider, offering independent hosting services for business customers with headquarters in North America.

AT&T has always offered us the support we needed for our voice and mobile needs, so when we needed a trusted resource to manage our SAP application, AT&T was a logical choice, said Brad Harrington, AWMs chief information officer. AT&Ts scalable solution is just what we need.

AWM is a vertically integrated, international supplier of molding and millwork products to the retail, lumberyard and builder segments of the home improvement industry. A premier provider of wood moldings and millwork products throughout the United States and internationally, AWM has over a dozen molding plants and sawmills, providing customers with a consistent, low-cost source of supply for moldings and millwork products. Manufacturing locations include the U.S., Mexico, Chile, Brazil and New Zealand.

Currently, AWM relies on AT&T to deliver its wireless and landline services. Todays agreement also includes Wide Area Network services. In addition, AT&T Hosting and Application Services will deliver remote application management for AWMs implementation of SAP solutions, including Basis support, for a period of 36 months.

AWM understands how a well-run SAP application can help it effectively manage its business, said Jeff Esposito, general manager of AT&Ts SAP practice. Relying on AT&T to deliver its enterprise application allows AWM to take advantage of our experience with SAP applications and focus on other projects that affect the bottom line.

As a certified SAP hosting partner, AT&T offers a full portfolio of hosting and application services for the complete SAP application life cycle. AT&Ts team of SAP applications specialists focuses on optimizing SAP solution-based environments to drive the highest value from them based on more than 10 years of experience and 170-plus enterprise application clients.

In addition, AT&T provides development hosting site services for testing, monitoring, training and development.
