Telecommunications leader, Empirix® brings its financial reporting and analysis to a new level with Global Software’s Spreadsheet Server for use with ORACLE® application

Raleigh, NC, September 19, 2006 -- Global Software, Inc., the #1 provider of Microsoft® Excel-based financial reporting and analysis tools to the ORACLE®, JD EDWARDS®, LAWSON®, SAP®, INFINIUM®, BPCS®, and Jack Henry™ marketplaces, today announced that Bedford, Massachusetts-based Empirix, Inc. has implemented Global Software, Inc.’s Spreadsheet Server for use with ORACLE® application.

Spencer Kupferman, Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Company Spokesman for Global Software, Inc. stated, “We are proud to have one of the leading telecommunications companies in the ORACLE marketplace using our market leading Excel-based Spreadsheet Server for use with Oracle application. Empirix had a need, they were not able to get the reports they wanted out of ADI and they are an Excel-centric shop so Spreadsheet Server was the right tool at the right time.”

Kerry Donovan, Financial Analyst, Empirix, Inc. stated, “Our users are very familiar with Excel and wanted something easy-to-use and quick to deploy as we had an immediate need for a tool such as Spreadsheet Server for use with Oracle. The standard Oracle reporting environment was not an efficient way to get real-time reports. The Excel-based Spreadsheet Server for use with Oracle was a perfect compliment to our financial reporting needs. It has enabled us to speed up our close process by providing people with a real-time view of the ledger without needing to constantly re-run reports. We have also deployed the tool in our UK office.”
