Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 17, 2003

Syan Limited, IBM's 2002 Partner of the Year for iSeries systems in the United Kingdom and one of that country's leading providers of managed services and software, has formed a business partnership with ACOM Solutions, Inc., a world-leading developer and marketer of back office process optimization solutions for the iSeries (AS/400) community, it was announced by Syan Managing Director George Djuric and James R. Scott, vice president and general manager of ACOM's iSeries (AS/400) division.

Headquartered in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, Syan operates throughout the UK and in continental Europe, with nearly 200 employees in six sales offices, two data centers and five engineering service centers. Under the agreement, Syan will sell, implement and support ACOM's entire EZeDocs/400(TM) modular electronic document output management solution suite, comprising:

-- EZeDocs/400 engine, which includes laser printer output


-- EZDesigner/400(TM), a tool for creation, storage and

modification of infinitely reusable electronic form templates,

which replace preprinted paper forms;

-- EZeDocs/400-eMail and Fax, which enable electronic delivery

throughout the world;

-- EZeDocs/400 - PDF, which enables on-demand conversion of

documents to PDF format;

-- EZeDocs - Archive, which enables electronic desktop access to

completed documents for viewing and/or retransmittal.

"ACOM's EZeDocs back office optimization solutions address the key frontiers of business efficiency," Djuric said. "Businesses have been wedded to paper forms as their primary mode of communicating and recording transactions. This has evolved into a profusion of multi-part, preprinted business forms and major, continuous expense in terms of printing, inventory, management, handling and distribution.

"Compatible with all financial management and ERP systems, EZeDocs allows businesses to eliminate these forms, dramatically improving back office efficiency while slashing overhead, personnel, and mailing and distribution costs. Replacing paper-based output with electronic processes is the progressive way to go for many companies and institutions."

Syan's nearly two decades of history and its strength in the UK market make it an extremely attractive partner, Scott said, noting that its clientele includes many premier firms and that it holds numerous accreditations from IBM and others, along with manufacturing and security certifications from the International Standards Organization (ISO).

"Syan has extensive penetration of the iSeries (AS/400) market in the UK, with more than 400 active installations, numerous managed resources contracts and a vigorous full-service information technology outsourcing business, much of it also iSeries (AS/400)-based," Scott said. "They are an ideal partner for ACOM in extending our presence in such primary markets as manufacturing, retail and financial services -- all of which are excellent candidates for EZeDocs paper-free back office optimization solutions. Syan has already achieved substantial exposure for ACOM products among its iSeries customers, and we look forward to working with them to enlarge upon that presence."
