Press release from the issuing company

Application Integrates printChannel System and Ariba ESM Solution SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 11, 2002-printChannel.com, the leading vendor of Web-based print procurement solutions, announced today that it has signed a contract to provide its online system to National Paper & Envelope, one of New Jersey's leading commercial printers. The application will integrate printChannel's e-procurement solution with Ariba's Enterprise Spend Management (ESM) solution. "Ariba installations have grown considerably since then, and we see a significant market opportunity to help customers like National Paper & Envelope capture new, or retain existing accounts," states Oliver Pflug, CEO of printChannel.com. "printChannel's system architecture is based on providing and supporting industry standards and tools. Over the past 18 months we have performed systems integration work with a number of print partners on the printChannel supplier network for their back-end operations. We are pleased to take our approach, together with National Paper & Envelope, to the next level by assisting customers facing integration issues with corporate enterprise solutions like Ariba," Pflug added. Chris Glon, printChannel's Chief Technology Officer comments: "printChannel's Ariba interface is similar to an ERP integration developed by printChannel three years ago in Europe. The approaches to different platforms tend to have common elements, and implementations and data interfaces all raise common issues both during the design/code and the production phases." Ariba is a leading Enterprise Spend Management solutions provider. The Ariba Spend Management solution provides a single point of visibility and control, allowing companies to engage, manage, and leverage the entire spend lifecycle from analysis, through outsourcing and procurement across the enterprise.
