WellPoint Systems Announces Expert Series
Designed for Oil and Gas Executives, Free Downloadable Series on Business Insight

WellPoint Systems Inc. (TSX-V:WPS), announces the launch of an Expert Series of Webinars and Podcasts focused on bringing valuable information to Oil and Gas companies. The series is designed as a complimentary resource for industry managers to learn how new technology and innovative use of business intelligence can advance profitability.

“As in most industries, our customers are doing more with less, and we believe that delivering knowledge and solutions to help them be more efficient and effective is important,” said Andrew Bird, SVP Marketing of WellPoint Systems. “The Expert Series provides the information executives and line of business managers need to run their businesses better.”

The first of the series, a podcast featuring Tom Franklin of E.A.G. Services, Inc., a Houston-based Management Consulting firm, discussing how technology is tackling the many uncertainties faced by today’s Oil and Gas executives, is currently available on the WellPoint Systems website at www.wellpointsystems.com/expert_series_tom_franklin_podcast.php.

Franklin talks about how coping with uncertainty, driving business and improving outcomes in the petroleum industry requires agility to a level never before required. Fortunately, the daily challenges can be made easier by using web-based technology to create nimble business processes. Today’s technology also allows people between the drilling floor and the back office to communicate better than ever before — and respond to changing conditions. This means logistics can be made flexible in ways never before seen.

“Our team of advisors has decades of Oil and Gas industry experience, having worked with many independents as well as the super majors. We are delighted to be chosen to help launch the Expert Series initiative which makes immediate information available to the industry in easy-to-digest chunks,” said Elizabeth Gerbel, CEO of E.A.G. Services.

Upcoming installments of the Expert Series will include subject matter experts representing a wide spectrum of areas within the Oil and Gas industry, as well as experts from within WellPoint Systems itself.

“Sharing the knowledge of industry experts, from partners, customers and our staff, helps the industry stay abreast of the continuing changes in compliance regulations, technology solutions and financial management in the industry,” said Bird. “We are proud that a market-leading company like E.A.G. Services has joined us to inaugurate this Expert Series.”
