Solution provider augments brain trust working on challenges of remote service parts control and management

San Mateo, CA — November 15, 2005 — Supply chain solution provider SeeControl has named two top supply chain luminaries, Dr. Hau Lee and Dr. David Pyke, to its board of advisors, seeking to apply their collective thought-leadership to the challenges of remote service parts control and management.

SeeControl provides a Web-based data collection and item management platform to enable companies to oversee distant inventories held at customer sites, partner locations, enterprise data centers and plant floors. The return on investment in the solution comes in the form of increased customer responsiveness with less inventory and operational cost, according to the solution provider, whose customers include the U.S. military and ABB.

Lee is a well-known expert in supply chain management and is a co-director of Stanford's Global Supply Chain Forum, as well as the Thoma Professor for Stanford's Graduate School of Business. He is the founder of two technology companies and serves on the boards of several private companies.

"In today's ever-evolving market, service is king and is the key driver towards profitability," said Lee. "I am thrilled to take part in a company like SeeControl that addresses the most pressing issues faced by executives today."

Pyke is the Benjamin Ames Kimball Professor of the Science of Administration and associate dean for the MBA Program at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. He has served as an expert witness on supply chain management for securities cases, is an operating partner at Tuckerman Capital, LLP, and serves on the boards of several private companies.

"SeeControl's focus on service and aftermarket needs addresses one of the key areas today's leading companies need to pay attention to," added Pyke. "Their knowledge base, ability to capture data and reduce costs presents an invaluable offering in today's complex business environment."

"The addition of Hau and David credibly endorses the momentum that the company and service parts management industry are seeing," said Garrett Gafke, president and CEO of SeeControl. "The combination of strategic guidance and domain expertise offered by these two experts will further See Control's ability to address the business world's evolving need for aftermarket solutions."

Other SeeControl Board of Advisor representatives include Douglas Burke, Dale Fuller, Rex Jackson, Larry Mohr and Andrew Salentine.
