FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 20, 2000

RealNames Corporation and Appshop have partnered to install and maintain the financial suite of Oracle Applications at RealNames' headquarters in Redwood City, California.

RealNames recently replaced its legacy financial system with Oracle's financial application suite, and with Oracle and Appshop, expects to integrate all operations from front to back within the company.

"Implementing Oracle Applications and employing the hosting services provided by Appshop will take us to the next level of providing superior service to our customers," said Robert Colaizzi, controller for RealNames. "Working closely with Appshop's ASP team, we completed the implementation in a record 14 weeks. The Appshop and Oracle solution will support our global expansion strategy as well."

Appshop is an Oracle Applications Service Provider (ASP) implementing and hosting Oracle Applications for prestigious clients like RealNames with no large up-front costs and low per-user monthly fees.

"This is a great opportunity for RealNames to improve their operations and service to their clients," said Appshop President and co-founder Prashanth Prahlad. "We are dedicated to providing elegant and functional solutions to complex problems and look forward to providing seamless integration of all the business operations at RealNames.

"And we at Appshop will provide professional management and maintenance of the entire system - hardware, software, communications, applications and upgrades - 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Now RealNames can focus on the success of their clients, not on their IT system," Prahlad emphasized.
