LAWSON SOFTWARE RANKED NUMBER ONE BY AS/400 DISTRIBUTION USERS: LAWSON TAKES TOP HONORS IN NEWS 3X/400 SURVEY FOR SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR

 MINNEAPOLIS, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Lawson Software, a leading provider of accounting, human resources, retail, distribution and materials management software applications, announced that its Distribution Management System has been rated the highest overall in client satisfaction in a survey of the top seven distribution management software vendors.
 The survey, conducted by NEWS 3X/400 magazine, required that applications be "full-function, non-industry-specific, stand alone distribution package or module." The list of vendor participants was based on International Data Corporation's ranking of companies having the greatest revenue from sales of AS/400 distribution management software.
 The survey asked respondents to rank the importance of 24 criteria and then evaluate their products against those criteria. In four of the top five criteria, Lawson ranked first in terms of reliability, ease of use, performance of order processing system and vendor technical support. Of the 19 remaining criteria, Lawson earned top honors in 13 categories.
 In the Spring of 1992, NEWS 3X/400 conducted a similar survey of AS/400 financial accounting systems. Lawson received the highest overall ratings in that survey as well.
 Lawson Distribution Management System consists of full-featured order entry, sales analysis, inventory control, purchase order, accounts receivable, demand forecasting and requisitions applications. To meet the requirements of the multinational market, each application has complete language and currency capabilities. These applications offer multi-level client/server capabilities and are available on a variety of relational databases and hardware platforms.

Lawson Software specializes in enterprise-wide accounting, human resources, retail, distribution and materials management software applications for businesses worldwide.
