 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Apertus Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: APTS) today announced it received two contracts with GTE (NYSE: GTE) totaling $1.5 million for Apertus' data management software products and development services. GTE selected Apertus' products as the data management tool for migrating company data from legacy systems to client/server environments. This will assist GTE in its efforts to increase business productivity and enhance customer service.
 "We are pleased to be a part of GTE's unique company-wide re- engineering strategy," said Robert Gordon, chairman and chief executive officer of Apertus. "GTE chose our products because they meet its stringent standards for robust object-oriented, distributed development environments, as well as its need for expertise in building mission critical client/server applications."
 Under the terms of the two contracts, Apertus' Enterprise Systems Group will develop two applications using its software products, Enterprise/Sync(TM), an expert system-based data synchronization tool and Enterprise/Access(TM), a server-based development tool that integrates legacy applications with client/server environments.
 Apertus will work with GTE on implementing two software re- engineering initiatives, including the Business Customer Server and Service Address Server Projects. Both projects are scheduled to be in production during the first quarter of 1994. The Business Customer Server will be GTE's standard corporate database for business customer information and the Service Address Server will be the standard corporate database for residential-service location information.
