ROSS SYSTEMS WINS MORE THAN $6 MILLION IN MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS SALES;
 COMPANY SALES INDICATE STRONG ACCEPTANCE FOR PROMIX LINE
 REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dennis V. Vohs, chairman and CEO of Ross Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROSS) today announced that the company has received approximately $6 million in orders for its PROMIX process manufacturing system and related services during its fourth quarter which ended June 30.
 The product line was originally sold only in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand and was introduced into the North American marketplace in November. The company's new contracts include customers such as E.I. DuPont, Inc., Ontario, Canada; Monsanto in St. Louis; Nobel Pharma USA, Inc. in Chicago; Moyer Packing in Pittsburgh; Kerry Foods in London; and Spillers Food Ltd. in London. These companies participate in a broad cross-section of the process manufacturing industry.
 "Response to PROMIX has been excellent," said Vohs. "A significant percentage of sales have been from North America, where Ross has only recently begun to market the product. Manufacturers in industries such as food and beverages, chemicals, and paint have been quick to discover the advantages of PROMIX as a powerful and flexible system created to meet the specific needs of process manufacturing operations."
