LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2002 — Adexa Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain management solutions, today announced a software implementation services agreement with Technology Solutions Company (TSC) (NASDAQ:TSCC), a leading business consulting and systems integration firm.
Under the scope of the agreement, TSC will provide domain expertise and consulting resources to support Adexa iCollaboration software implementation to joint clients. Adexa’s iCollaboration suite is a comprehensive portfolio of optimization, collaboration and business process automation solutions that enable collaborative supply chain commerce.
“Our alliances with complementary product and service providers is a key element in our successful delivery of supply chain excellence to innovative companies, enabling them to achieve profitable growth and preparing them for the challenges and opportunities of c-Commerce,” said John Sibley, vice president of Channels and Alliances for Adexa. “TSC’s eBusiness consulting and industry expertise, especially in A&D, complement Adexa’s iCollaboration solution.”
“Speed in implementation is very important in today’s economy, as customers want solutions that are rapidly deployable and offer immediate returns,” said Steve Belko, vice president at TSC. “TSC’s past experience working with Adexa on aerospace and defense projects has proven that Adexa’s iCollaboration, with its flexible business rules, can quickly scale to meet the complex needs of A&D companies.”

“Partner companies want more than the ability to just resell another vendor’s product set. They must understand the needs of both their customers and the market space,” said Steve Banker, director of supply chain solutions at ARC Advisory Group. “Both Adexa and TSC bring aerospace and defense sector domain expertise to the table.”
