CH2M HILL Managed Services Selected by Corporate Express for Remote Infrastructure Management and 24/7 Monitoring of Networks and IT Systems

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 23, 2008 -- CH2M HILL Managed Services, a provider of full IT life cycle management for companies' network infrastructure and IT operations, has been selected by Corporate Express US Inc. to commence an enterprise-wide Remote Infrastructure Management & Monitoring implementation that will enhance employee productivity and ensure rapid response times to customer needs. This implementation will support Corporate Express' headquarters in Broomfield, Colo. and 99 other locations across the United States. Corporate Express US is part of the Dutch-based Corporate Express NV (NYSE: CXP), which provides customers with a single source of business products and services through a global distribution network with 18,000 employees in 21 countries in North America, Europe and Australia.

CH2M HILL Managed Services' Remote Infrastructure Management (RIM) services optimize the performance and availability of critical corporate networks and IT infrastructure by proactively monitoring, detecting and resolving network congestion and application accessibility issues. CH2M HILL Managed Services utilizes industry-leading hardware and software tools for its RIM services, backed by a highly experienced team of professionals that serve as customers' eyes and ears 24/7. These services allow internal IT teams to focus their efforts on core business functions rather than on infrastructure management, while improving response times to emerging problems and lowering the costs associated with network and IT management.

"Corporate Express wanted to work with a managed services company with a strong track record in remote infrastructure management, and the CH2M HILL Managed Services team has been delivering this service since the discipline first evolved. That experience was very important to us and gives us peace of mind that our network and IT infrastructure are in good hands," said Pete Fisher, Vice President of IT Operations. "Another important thing to us was the depth of CH2M HILL's service in terms of methodology for event monitoring, conducting triage of concurrent problems, and reporting. Their reporting will give us a tremendous amount of detail about how our systems are performing, how quickly issues are being resolved, and how much performance and reliability are increasing as a result of these efforts."

According to Kevin Mungle, president of CH2M HILL Managed Services, "Most IT teams are overloaded with responsibilities and are typically in a very reactive mode regarding network and IT performance issues. Our Remote Infrastructure Management services immediately change that dynamic by taking a proactive approach to monitoring for issues and resolving them as they arise. We detect and remediate on a 24/7 basis, thereby minimizing their impact and preventing them from becoming chronic problems."

CH2M HILL's implementation at Corporate Express was completed in early April. CH2M HILL Managed Services now conducts ongoing 24/7 monitoring for Corporate Express. For more information about CH2M HILL Managed Services' Remote Infrastructure Management and Monitoring services, please visit
