                                                    (516) 484-4400, X200

                Sandata Technologies Accepts Going Private Offer

     PORT  WASHINGTON,  N.Y. - September  3, 2002 - Sandata  Technologies,  Inc.
(Nasdaq:  SAND) (the  "Company")  today  announced that it has accepted an offer
from  Sandata  Acquisition  Corp.  ("SAC") to take the Company  private.  SAC, a
corporation owned by three of the Company's  directors and the adult children of
one of  those  directors,  will  pay  $1.91  per  share  in cash  for all of the
outstanding shares of the Company other than those held by SAC.

     SAC  made a  proposal  in  April  2002 to take  the  company  private  in a
transaction in which the public stockholders would have received $1.50 per share
in cash. That proposal expired shortly after it was made. The Company's Board of
Directors appointed a special committee, consisting of directors Ronald Fish and
Martin Bernard, to consider SAC's recent proposal as well as other alternatives.
After considering the Company's  alternatives and negotiating the improved $1.91
per share proposal,  the special  committee  recommended the transaction.  Based
upon that  recommendation,  the Company's  Board of Directors  also approved the
transaction.  The special  committee  was advised by Breen  Murray & Co.,  which
provided a report on  valuation of the Company and has been engaged to provide a
fairness opinion on the transaction.

     There are  approximately  2,480,000  shares of Common  Stock of the Company
outstanding,  of which approximately 70% is owned by the principals of SAC. Over
the six months prior to the offer by SAC in early August,  the  Company's  stock
had traded between $.031 and $1.01 per share. The stock closed on August 30th at
$1.27 per share.  The $1.91 offer  represents a premium of 50% over that closing
price, a 282% premium over the closing price the day before the  announcement of
the offer by SAC in early  August,  and a premium of between  516% and 89% above
the six-month trading range.

     The  proposed  transaction  would result in the  acquisition  of all of the
outstanding  shares of common stock of the Company  (other than the shares owned
by SAC).  The closing of the  proposed  transaction  is subject to,  among other
things, (i) approval of the proposed  transaction by the affirmative vote of the
majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock; (ii) ) receipt of a fairness
opinion by the Committee;  (iii) receipt of any  regulatory  approvals and third
party consents; and (iv) the negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement
regarding the proposed transaction.

     The  proposed   transaction  may  only  be  completed  in  accordance  with
applicable  state and federal laws  including the Securities Act of 1933 and the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

     This press release shall not  constitute an offer or a  solicitation  of an
offer to buy or sell any securities of the Company or a  solicitation  regarding
the proposed transaction.

     It is expected  that the Company  will file,  among other  things,  a Proxy
Statement with the SEC in connection with the proposed transaction and will mail
the Proxy Statement to stockholders  of the Company.  Stockholders  are urged to
read the Proxy  Statement  carefully when it is available.  The Proxy  Statement
will contain important  information about the Company,  the proposed transaction
and  related  matters.  Stockholders  will also be able to obtain free copies of
these documents through the website maintained by the SEC at

     In addition to the Proxy Statement, the Company files annual, quarterly and
special reports,  proxy  statements and other  information with the SEC. You may
read  and copy any  reports,  statements,  and  other  information  filed by the
Company at the SEC public reference room at 450 Fifth Street,  N.W.  Washington,
