Business Editors & Technology Writers

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 7, 2002

Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN) today announced that two of the nation's leading academic medical centers have selected the company's software solutions to help manage mission-critical business operations.

Stanford University Medical Center (SUMC), in Stanford, Calif., will be using Lawson Human Resources and Lawson Financials, both designed specifically for healthcare businesses. SUMC officials cited Lawson's commitment to the healthcare market among the reasons for choosing Lawson's offering over that of competitors.

SUMC Vice President of Information Technology Russ Peckenpaugh said, "SUMC chose Lawson as its enterprise solutions vendor because its offerings are more tailored to meet the specific needs of complex medical centers. This translates into improved ease-of-use, less customization, lower risk and quicker implementations. We were also looking for a fully integrated solution that provides a well-rounded suite of products and that interfaces easily with our hospital information systems."

University of Alabama Health System, Alabama's principal tertiary healthcare provider, also recently chose Lawson because of its healthcare-specific offerings and proven track record serving other large, multi-entity healthcare institutions. The combined value of the two contracts is nearly $2 million.

Lawson serves more than 500 healthcare industry customers representing more than 4,500 facilities, including seven of the top 10 integrated delivery networks. The company also serves managed care systems, hospitals, clinics, physician group practices, home healthcare, long-term care and other health services enterprises. Lawson solutions help healthcare organizations manage their business so they can focus on their patients, automate and streamline materials management for a better bottom line, and manage the challenges of labor shortages.
