JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 14, 2001 (AMEX: MED), a leading Application Service Provider (ASP) of comprehensive healthcare portal solutions, today announced that the company's United Kingdom division, e-Net Technology Ltd. (e-Net), has formed an alliance with Chorus Application Software, a 20-year-old company that develops financial and business management software.

The alliance enables e-Net to market its award-winning, highly modular esparto e-Business solution to Chorus' established customer base, which currently numbers more than 400 small and medium enterprises. In return, Chorus is able to provide industry-leading e-business capabilities to its customer base.

Chorus has recently built on the success of its core financial and business management system, acclaimed by IBM as the "Best of Breed" for the AS/400, with the launch of a new open system financial application suite, Chorus.ea. The e-Net/Chorus alliance provides Chorus with an e-business solutions partner to deliver its e-commerce and e-procurement solutions, insuring a seamless integration with its Chorus.ea product set.

Chorus' managing director Neil Cross stated, "This is a significant relationship for us, enabling the company to offer an integrated e-business and finance system to both our existing and potential customers. Chorus will now be able to provide full e-business solutions to companies with Internet commerce requirements -- with Chorus.ea providing the core, back office support and e-Net's esparto e-business application suite making possible the front-end delivery.

"We chose esparto because it is ideally suited to the Chorus product set, especially Chorus.ea. It also sits well with our stated aim of becoming one of the UK's leading e-business order fulfillment providers."

Commenting on the agreement, John F. Andrews, chairman and chief executive officer, stated, "We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Chorus, which provides the company with the opportunity to market our products and services to Chorus' current and future customers. Again, we are utilizing co-marketing and strategic relationships with other service providers to increase penetration into specific market segments, while at the same time keeping our sales and marketing expenditures to a minimum. Chorus has a significant incentive to place our products with their customers -- it allows them to increase revenues and profits from those customers, and play a more significant role in providing software solutions to those customers. This alliance represents the kind of win-win relationship we are forging both here in the United States and abroad."
