 Pact Will Provide TARGET Users With An Easy Upgrade Path to
 Optika's FilePower Document Management and Workflow Solutions
 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Optika Imaging Systems Inc., a leading developer of image and information management solutions, and Software Alliance Corp., a leading integrator of banking software, announced today that the two companies have formalized a new cooperative marketing relationship.
 Under terms of the agreement, Software Alliance will become an authorized Optika reseller and will market FilePower software to the financial services and banking industries.
 Currently, over 100 customers utilize Software Alliance's TARGET software, a document imaging application. While these companies are realizing productivity benefits from document imaging, many now require increased processing capabilities and advanced software functionality for specialized applications such as automated signature verification and departmental workflow. Optika and Software Alliance are jointly developing an image database conversion program which will enable TARGET users who require these advanced features to easily migrate to Optika's FilePower solution. This will significantly increase Optika's installed customer base while providing new technology to Software Alliance's customers.
 "We selected Optika Imaging Systems because of the company's reputation for developing scalable, client/server solutions that enable imaging integration throughout the enterprise," said Peter Bloomsburgh, chief operating officer of Software Alliance. "Additionally, Optika has a proven track record in the banking and financial services industry, with notable installations such as Bank One and Boatman's."
 "This agreement represents a unique opportunity for Optika to strengthen it's leadership position in the financial services sector," stated Harvey Jeane, president and chief executive officer of Optika Imaging Systems. "By partnering with Software Alliance, we can expand our market presence by tapping into their decade of experience in the banking and financial services industries."
