170 Systems Unveils Next Major Release of 170 MarkView® Financial Suite for mySAP(TM) ERP Financials

Part of Company's Gathering Momentum in SAP Marketplace

BEDFORD, Mass., March 6 // -- 170 Systems today announced the next major release of its flagship product, the 170 MarkView Financial Suite, for use with mySAP(TM) ERP Financials. The 170 MarkView Financial Suite is used by many of the world's largest companies to automate and optimize financial processes and includes solutions for accounts payable, expense management, e-invoicing and others.

SAP AG-certified with both Netweaver(TM) and ArchiveLink(TM) in its initial 2006 release, the 170 MarkView Financial Suite has been chosen by a number of organizations, including UK-based Xansa (see separate release) and one of the largest global accounting firms. Typically, organizations with large transaction volumes and large numbers of mobile employees derive the most value from 170 MarkView solutions in their procure-to-pay, order-to-cash and expense-management processes.

"Our recent and significant wins in the SAP marketplace are a clear demonstration of customers' need for our solutions, both in the US and in the EU," said Dave Ellenberger, President and CEO of 170 Systems. "This new release amplifies our commitment to enabling our customers' to achieve financial process excellence - regardless of which major ERP system they've invested in."

New solutions and features in this release include:
o 170 MarkView OCR Invoice which integrates optical character recognition
(OCR) technology into the invoice-entry process, eliminating manual
data entry and increasing data accuracy. 170 MarkView OCR Invoice's
knowledgebase and learn-by-example capabilities result in much lower
OCR implementation and maintenance costs than template-based OCR
o Web-based account coding enables line-of-business managers to
participate in the invoice-coding/approval process without having to
learn how to use SAP. Unlike other solutions, business participants
use a browser-based interface to enter General Ledger codes for non-
P.O. invoices and SAP validates them against the SAP Chart of Accounts.
This process ensures that only valid account code combinations are
captured and increases AP efficiency by having the proper the
information directly.
o Advanced Business Controls helps strengthen internal controls by
enforcing segregation of duties for each transaction, identifying
potential policy violations, payment errors, system misuse and fraud,
and routing questionable transactions for executive review and
disposition to minimize risk without sacrificing productivity or cost.
o 170 MarkView for Expense Management optimizes the expense management
process, reducing the burden on AP, approving managers, and expense
report users. Fully integrated with the ERP expenses application, 170
MarkView for Expense Management eliminates the need to route paper
receipts through the organization and increases productivity for all
involved in the process, ensures more accurate expense report
reimbursement, reduces reimbursement cycle times, and enforces greater
compliance with corporate expense policies.
