Pomeroy Positioned in Magic Quadrants for Desktop & Help Desk Outsourcing in North America

HEBRON, Ky. --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 10, 2005 -- Pomeroy IT Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:PMRY) ("Pomeroy"), today announced receiving recognition from Gartner, Inc. ("Gartner"), for its help desk and desktop outsourcing services capabilities. Gartner , world-renowned analysts for the information technology industry, recently released its 2004 Magic Quadrants(R) for help desk and desktop services outsourcing in North America*.


Pomeroy is positioned in the Challengers Quadrant in Gartner's Desktop Outsourcing Services and Help Desk Outsourcing Services Magic Quadrants. According to Gartner, Challengers are vendors who "execute well today, but have a less-defined view of market direction and, therefore, may not be aggressive in their preparation for the future."

"We consider our listing in the Desktop Outsourcing Magic Quadrant to reflect our continued dedication to quality and customer satisfaction," said Steve Pomeroy, President and CEO. "And we believe that being recognized in our first exposure on the Help Desk Outsourcing Magic Quadrant is due in large part to our merger with ARC in 2004, and confirms the value we recognized when we proposed the combining of the two companies. We're very excited to receive this kind of recognition from industry analysts, and Pomeroy is dedicated to improving our positioning in both of these Magic Quadrants in 2005."

The quadrants measure companies on two axis - the ability to execute and a company's completeness of vision in providing IT outsourcing solutions. It is important to note, however, that 70% of the overall ranking is determined by client references. Pomeroy is perceived by clients to be dependable and flexible in the ability to deliver services, and the 2004 merger with ARC allows for a wider capability to provide those services to clients starting in 2005.
