Houston, TX. – March 4, 2003 – Today, SoftSmiths announced the availability of a new technology service offering from SoftSmiths Consulting Services to help utilities and energy companies meet new requirements related to physical and cyber infrastructure protection, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning. SoftSmiths delivers critical e-Business solutions and services that enable energy industry participants to enhance profitability and reliability in the competitive marketplace.

With the anticipated Homeland Security driven requirements to ensure secure and uninterrupted operations of the nation's wholesale electric generation and transmission systems, energy companies realize the need to review their critical technology infrastructure components supporting those operations.

"Our new services address these needs and complement SoftSmiths’ mission critical 24x7 scheduling, trading, risk measurement, accounting, and compliance system solutions for the energy industry."
