Intentia Delivers On Its Collaborative Vision: Announces Launch Of Movex, Version 12

New functionality includes e-collaboration, Private Trading Exchange, Web Shop B2B, Supplier Portal, POS Integration and Supply Chain Planning and Execution applications.

Stockholm, Sweden and Schaumburg, IL, USA, March 18, 2002 - Intentia International AB (publ) (XSSE:INT B) is pleased to announce the launch of its new Movex Collaboration Applications - Movex, Version 12. The new collaboration solution opens the door to the next business revolution and with it, Intentia delivers on its vision of the transparent supply chain. Movex V.12 has been implemented at beta sites in the U.S. and worldwide and is scheduled for general release in the Americas in early April.

Movex Collaboration Applications (Version 12) comprise a completely integrated solution with six principal components that make collaboration a reality for enterprises: Supply Chain Management, Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Management, Business Performance Measurement, e-Business, and Value Chain Collaboration. Using Movex Collaboration Applications, a value chain can realize the next quantum leap in productivity. Intentia calls this the "collaborative revolution."

"The next era of business competition will be between value chains, not just between individual companies. The winners of this competition will be collaborative value chains. Through efficiency in their joint processes, collaborative value chains will deliver the best value to their customers," remarks Bjom Algkvist, CEO of Intentia.

"Movex Collaboration Applications provide the members of a value chain with a secure and transparent exchange of information," Algkvist continues. "Our new Movex solution goes beyond the products offered by our competitors and builds on the technical leadership Intentia established with its Java platform two years ago."

"This is a massive upgrade with many major enhancements and many completely new products throughout our applications suite. Only a fully integrated suite of applications can provide full transparency of information and that is what our customers will need to collaborate," says Johan Berg, President of Intentia Research & Development.

"We provide a fully integrated suite of products, each competitive in its own right. Our customers decide for themselves when it makes business sense for them to upgrade their value chain integration. With Movex Collaboration Applications, our customers will always be able to keep pace with the increasing demands for integration," adds Berg.

Henrik Billgren, Vice President of Marketing for Intentia Americas, notes: "The new capabilities of Movex will have a significant impact on our customers and prospective customers in North America. More and more mid-sized companies have come to realize that information integration and collaboration, both up and down the value chain, are absolutely essential to helping them achieve their profitability goals and maintain their competitive edge. Now that collaboration is possible."

New Movex Components

Movex e-Collaborator fully harnesses the power of XML and enables companies to conduct business seamlessly across company borders. Movex e-Collaborator uses the XML standard to send business documents efficiently and economically over the Internet.
