 XSOFT ADOPTS STREAMLINED BUSINESS MODEL
 Xerox Software Division Organizes Into Six New Lines of
 Business Amid First Quarter Success
 PALO ALTO, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- XSoft, a software


development and marketing division of Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) today announced an organizational change that gives full profit and loss responsibility to six newly formed Lines of Business (LOB).
 This fundamental change from its former hierarchial reporting structure to autonomous product groups is a result of the success of a business model implemented by XSoft to bring two recent software products, Rooms for Windows and PaperWorks, to market.
 "In less than 10 months, a handful of people took some remarkable technology and brought it to market with results surpassing our expectations," said Dennis W. Andrews, president, XSoft. "The fast- track time-to-market model used with these products when applied to all of XSoft will allow us to be more competitive and more profitable."
 The six new Lines of Business are:
 -- GlobalView Family (e.g., GlobalView for PC and GlobalView for
 Unix)
 -- Shared Services (e.g., Print, File and E-Mail Services)
 -- Publishing (e.g., DocuBuild, PC DocuBuild)
 -- Tools and Utilities (e.g., Rooms for Windows)
 -- Text Search and Retrieval (e.g., Document Search and
 Retrieval)
 -- Graphics and imaging (e.g., Pro Illustrator, Chemical
 Illustrator, XPI)
 Each Line of Business will report to a member of XSoft's senior management team and be responsible for all product planning, development, quality control and marketing. They will bring product market by using the combined XSoft and Xerox sales and distribution channels.
 According to Andrews, "This is more than a change in organization. It is also a change in technology and philosophy. Much of our technology has already been rearchitected and factored to be more modular. This will allow it to be more quickly adapted to multiple product lines and new hardware platforms.
 "Our product teams are likewise being factored to allow them to be quicker on their feet and more responsible to customer needs. Rooms and PaperWorks are proof that our next step in growth is right for us."
