COSTA MESA, Calif - July 11, 2002 -- Syspro, a leading developer of enterprise software, has announced the launch of IMPACT Encore(TM) solutions, an XML-based product that significantly extends the functionality of the Syspro IMPACT Encore Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. Based on a component-based architecture, IMPACT Encore solutions provides an open integration layer to IMPACT Encore and a pathway to extend the
enterprise and expand supply chain functionality.

According to Brian Stein, president, Syspro USA, IMPACT Encore solutions positions Syspro at the forefront of ERP companies with a solution that leverages the power and flexibility of Microsoft's .Net framework and open standards. "IMPACT Encore solutions is a cost-effective way for IMPACT Encore customers to extend system functionality through the integration of best-of-breed applications and leverage all the benefits of wireless connectivity.

"IMPACT Encore solutions helps businesses to maintain closer ties with their customers and suppliers by facilitating effective business-to-business trading. IMPACT Encore solutions also provides the framework for delivery of a new generation of web-based applications," said Stein. "These new applications, developed using the Microsoft .Net architecture, can be fully customized to match customer requirements."

IMPACT Encore solutions is delivered as a library of business objects that can be configured and used as required. They are sensibly priced according to the actual needs of each

"IMPACT Encore solutions allows our customers to use new technology more easily than ever before. Additionally, because the product is firmly based on XML standards, it is designed to evolve over time and will, therefore, lower ongoing development maintenance costs," noted Stein.

"IT departments will particularly appreciate the new world of expanded functionality which IMPACT Encore solutions enables. Developers can use their language of choice (such as C#, Visual Basic.Net, ASP.Net) to work with the new components to provide end-usersolutions that add new dimensions of efficiency to the enterprise and the entire supply chain," he
