RedPrairie Agent Technology Platform Empowers Users with Maximum Supply Chain Flexibility

Infrastructure for DigitaLogistix(TM) Suite of SCE Solutions Ideally Suited to Today's Dynamic Supply Chain Environment, Reduces Total Cost of Ownership

WAUKESHA, Wis., Feb. 11, 2003 -- At the ProMat(R) 2003 Material Handling, IT & Logistics Solutions show in Chicago today, RedPrairie(TM) announced a new technology platform - RedPrairie Agent(TM) - that provides customers unprecedented flexibility to personalize RedPrairie DigitaLogistix(TM) solutions to their specific supply chain requirements without custom code, quickly re-configure those systems over time to respond to changing business requirements, and reduce the total cost of system ownership. RedPrairie Agent provides a powerful framework that has been used to build RedPrairie's integrated suite of logistics solutions for warehouse, transportation and productivity management, supply chain visibility and collaboration. It empowers users to manage change after system implementation better than any other supply chain execution system on the market.

"RedPrairie's technology platform enables Panasonic to quickly adjust our distribution processes based on changing business requirements," said Brad Moszkiewicz, Manager of Operations for Panasonic's National Parts Center. "We can easily configure the system to provide the new capabilities by utilizing RedPrairie's agent library."

To achieve high levels of supply chain proficiency and flexibility requires software solutions for warehouse, transportation and labor productivity management with functionally rich "out of the box" capabilities for today's business requirements built upon an inherently flexible technology platform. RedPrairie's DigitaLogistix suite provides the industry's most robust SCE solutions built on the industry's most flexible platform.

The RedPrairie Agent technology platform enables customers to easily adapt the robust "out of the box" capabilities of RedPrairie's logistics solutions to meet their individual supply chain requirements both during implementation and for ongoing changes. Key elements of the RedPrairie Agent technology include:

- Extensive library of individual agents representing different logistics actions or processes that can be linked in limitless ways to meet unique logistics process requirements. These adaptive agents are loosely coupled, but dynamically linked during the execution process.

- Configurable rules-engine and intelligent workflow.

- Ability to easily configure individual applications and auto-configure screens with the specific fields, naming conventions or local languages required for processing.

- Application "wizards" that guide users through specific set-up and configuration tasks - initially, or when requirements change.

- Native Event Management System (EMS) that monitors the environment for events or exceptions and proactively notifies appropriate personnel via multiple media types, such as e-mail, voice mail or pager.

- Flexible integration framework that enables RedPrairie solutions to be easily integrated with ERP or legacy systems, support real-time messaging environments, and easily maintain integrations as applications change over time.

"RedPrairie has provided the industry's most flexible logistics solutions for many years," said RedPrairie Company Results Leader John Jazwiec. "Flexibility requires an environment that empowers users to meet their individual requirements initially and over time, and lowers their cost of ownership. We've taken our technology to a whole new level of adaptivity, providing significantly greater benefits and savings than can be achieved with first generation `macro language' approaches to adaptability."

Through RedPrairie Agent, DigitaLogistix provides the following benefits:

- Unequaled flexibility to configure RedPrairie solutions for individual supply chain requirements during implementation and for future changes.

- Lower cost of ownership by enabling users to adapt the system over time through wizards and simple configuration changes without learning new programming languages or modifying the system's source code.

- Easily integrate RedPrairie solutions into existing enterprise application portfolios.

- Respond more quickly to problems and exceptions through event management embedded throughout the suite.

RedPrairie Agent supports current external technology trends such as XML and web services. Its unique architecture also enables RedPrairie to quickly adapt its solutions to new technology trends and requirements as they emerge.
