STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 21, 1997--

Partnership Reflects Growing Need for Application Messaging

and Electronic Commerce Capabilities in OLTP Environments

Frontec AMT, a world leader in application messaging technology, has teamed with Stratus Computer, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fault-tolerant computer systems. The partnership will offer customers a high-performance and continuously available solution for implementing electronic commerce, EDI, Intelligent Messaging and message-based backbone systems in an on-line transaction processing (OLTP) environment.

Under the agreement, the companies will jointly offer Frontec's AMTrix(R) advanced application messaging solutions on both the Stratus RADIO Cluster(TM) server running the Windows NT(R) Server operating system and the Continuum(R) series of fault tolerant computer systems running the HP-UX(R) operating system. This is Frontec's first joint marketing agreement with a computer hardware manufacturer.

"We have seen a tremendous demand for advanced messaging capabilities in industries that rely upon continuously available, fault-tolerant computer systems, such as finance, health care, telecommunications, and transportation," said Victor Werner, senior vice president of marketing, Frontec AMT. "Stratus has a dominant presence in these markets and a well-deserved reputation for providing sophisticated fault-tolerant computer systems at very reasonable prices. That makes them an ideal partner for us to meet this demand."

"The Frontec alliance is vital to our strategy of offering a complete, electronic commerce solution to our customers," said Jim Williams, vice president of channels, Stratus Computer, Inc. "With our RADIO(TM) and Continuum series products, AMTrix's powerful, real-time messaging capabilities enable us to offer fully integrated, EDI/EC and Intelligent Messaging solutions."

Intelligent Messaging refers to the unique capability of Frontec's AMTrix technology to enhance a company's existing business processes by helping them to analyze the constant flow of electronic messages. It lets them identify and evaluate key information in any given process, such as schedule variances, changes in production output or retail ordering errors; determine who should be notified; and deliver decisionable information in whatever format is required, including EDI, E-mail, fax, Notes or pager. Intelligent Messaging solutions provide event-driven reporting capabilities that give managers better control and more time to react to changes in their operations.
