SPANISH ISP IMPLEMENTS PORTAL SOFTWARE'S INFRANET.

Portal Software, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRSF), Cupertino, Calif., a provider of business infrastructure software for next- generation communications services, has announced that Infranet, its customer management and billing platform, has been implemented by Spanish ISP and Internet portal eresMas Interactiva S.A. With more than 40 percent of the Spanish Internet market, eresMas uses Infranet to serve two million users and to deploy new value-added services.

eresMas provides dynamic customized portals for residential customers. Launched in March 2000, eresMas offers innovative services and content accessible through multiple platforms including PCs, mobile phones and television. Over the last year, eresMas has become one of the most highly regarded Internet companies in Spain by successfully offering differentiated services.

To support its new service offerings and evolve beyond the company's original free and flat-rate charging schemes, eresMas required a highly flexible real-time customer management and billing platform. In addition, the new valued added-services and support for virtual ISPs had to be introduced seamlessly and effectively, which lead to the selection of Infranet.

"Infranet's flexibility will enable eresMas to develop real-time pricing models to support the frequent pricing and promotion changes necessary in a highly competitive environment. Apart from the usual per-user or per-month billing methods, other value-based charging mechanisms can be introduced including; billing for content, private branding, access time, number of transactions, or bandwidth used. Infranet provides the powerful customer management and billing solution that eresMas needs to support its rapid expansion into new business markets," commented Ian Perry, vice president EMEA, Portal Software.

eresMas has implemented Infranet 6.0 running on Sun platforms under UNIX, which includes innovative functionality allowing eresMas to provide private branding across all service offerings.
