PROMIS COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF MADEMA SOFTWARE

 TORONTO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Promis Systems Corporation Ltd. today announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of the MADEMA(TM) software from Manufacturing Software, Inc. (MSI) of East Windsor, Connecticut. The consideration for the purchase consisted of an unspecified number of Promis Systems common shares. MADEMA software is considered a leading-edge technology in the finite scheduling marketplace, and is used by manufacturers to plan the entire production process in less time and with greater efficiency than can be done by present methods. MADEMA base technology was developed over several years by Massachusetts Institute of Technology under sponsorship of Computer Aided Manufacturing International (CAM-i), a consortium of worldwide manufacturing companies. MSI, through an exclusive technology license with the original developers, has spent the past 4 years extending it into the MADEMA product.
 The MADEMA acquisition comes on the heels of Promis Systems' April 1993 acquisition of Palette Systems Inc. and its PALETTE(R) software. PALETTE software is the recognized industry leader in the market for computer integrated Quality Assurance documentation management systems. It is focused on manufacturing segments where Regulatory Compliance is government mandated (e.g. pharmaceuticals, aerospace, medical devices, food & beverage), or Quality Assurance is paramount (e.g. electronics, chemicals).
 Promis Systems is a predominant supplier of plant floor management software and manufacturing execution systems to the world's leading manufacturers. Currently more than 1200 PROMIS and PALETTE software modules are installed in 17 countries at over 180 leading manufacturing sites. Promis Systems helps businesses solve manufacturing challenges including time to market, quality, regulatory compliance, competitiveness, productivity and customer service. The company is headquartered in Toronto, Canada with Promis Systems sales headquartered in San Jose, California. Its Palette Systems subsidiary is headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire. On a combined basis, Promis Systems has 21 sales and support locations throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
