LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 21, 2000

Xpedior(TM) Incorporated (Nasdaq:XPDR), a leading provider of eBusiness solutions, has helped Equire revolutionize commerce for three premier UK retailers.

Xpedior assisted Equire in launching three eCommerce retail partnerships in time for the holiday season: Hamley's, London's oldest and most celebrated toy store (; Links of London, designers of sophisticated and modern jewellery, silver gifts and accessories (; and Van, a high-quality, online jeweller ( that launched &uot;the finest jewellery you can buy online&uot; an Internet collection of platinum and diamond jewellery. The three sites went live within two weeks of each other.

Equire, an end-to-end global eCommerce company that works exclusively with luxury retailers, chose Xpedior to help deliver a flexible eBusiness framework that supports the delivery of multiple eBusiness retail sites with seamlessly integrated back office functionality.

Xpedior worked with Equire and its eCommerce design partner, Nucleus, to rapidly design, develop and launch the three retail sites in only eight weeks. &uot;The combination of the Xpedior Delivery Process, our knowledge of retail and eCommerce -- along with the XpediatorsTM, our arsenal of reusable eBusiness components -- allows us to deliver truly inspiring solutions in unprecedented timeframes,&uot; said Tony Morosini, Managing Director of Xpedior, Europe.

Focused on partnering with luxury retailers, Equire provides a full range of global e-tail services that deliver well above the increasingly accessible task of building a sales-enabled site. &uot;The Xpedior team's understanding of our needs combined with their deep technology skills were key in helping us achieve our ambitious launch plans,&uot; said John O'Sullivan, Managing Director of Equire, Ltd. &uot;We also needed a truly global partner, who could support our operations in the UK and Boulder, Colorado, and Xpedior is that partner.&uot; Morosini added that Xpedior is increasingly seeing the need for a global presence, which Xpedior has, to support organizations like Equire.

Xpedior developed the Equire systems using the BroadVision (Nasdaq:BVSN) One-to-One Commerce Web Application to provide targeted content to consumers.
