VIENNA, Va., Aug. 3, 2004 -- HandySoft Global Corporation, a leading provider of business process management (BPM) solutions, today announced that BizFlow(R), HandySoft's award-winning BPM enterprise platform, has been selected as one of the top five best-of-breed BPM solutions by BPM Today. Although many BPM products were reviewed for this category, BPM Today chose BizFlow as "one of the clear winners in this category."

"BizFlow is a full-featured business process management system particularly suited to environments where exceptions or disturbances to normal processes must be handled quickly and seamlessly, including well thought-out capabilities for operation and modification of business processes on an ongoing basis," according to the BPM Today review. "BizFlow has some excellent integration additions that encapsulate domain knowledge to reduce time and effort when implementing specific business-process scenarios. ... Of particular note are the Accounts Payable, Sarbanes-Oxley, Six Sigma and government functions that have real depth and provide substantial value to customers who need to implement these process flows in their BPM systems."

Product reviews for BPM Today were conducted by industry analyst Terry Schurter, a seasoned veteran of the software industry who has served as a reviewing member of the Open Applications Group and is an internationally recognized award-winning engineer. BPM products reviewed by Mr. Schurter were subjected to a rigorous, independent evaluation based on use of technology, product design, functionality and features. Each product was analyzed for implementation and operation in terms of the modeling environment, automation capabilities, manual client support, use of technology, reporting and analysis. Award winners were selected based on their comparative rankings in these categories.

"The more people become familiar with the flexibility, scalability and usability of BizFlow, the more both industry analysts and customers alike continue to sing its praises," said Stuart Claggett, chief operating officer of HandySoft Global. "Coming on the heels of Gartner's positioning of HandySoft in the Magic Quadrant and Butler Group's recent praise for our Sarbanes-Oxley Accelerator, the selection of BizFlow by BPM Today as one of the best-of-breed BPM solutions continues to validate the capabilities that BizFlow and our Accelerator solutions are bringing to Global 500 companies. These companies need continuous, sustainable and effective process improvement, and HandySoft delivers."

"BizFlow's technology is solid and extensible, easily qualifying as a dependable, enterprise-class product," Mr. Schurter added. "Cross-platform support is excellent, so customers can run the system on a variety of hardware and operating systems, giving BizFlow an edge when compared to products that are focused on a single platform. The automation interface is solid, with support for custom integration and a healthy set of application-specific adapters ready for plug-and-play integration to selected ERP, EAI and document-management systems."
