Speedware Completes $3 Million Modernization Project for Televised Retailer

    MONTREAL, Aug. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - Speedware Ltd., a subsidiary of Activant
Solutions Inc. and a leading provider of legacy modernization software
solutions, including business intelligence and productivity tools, today
announced it has successfully completed a project to provide legacy
modernization technologies and services to a leading televised retailer. The
revenue recognized from this contract over its term was over $3 million and
was based on the sale of licenses and the provision of support and consulting
    Speedware offers comprehensive modernization technologies and services
designed to protect companies' IT investments and enable business continuity
as they move toward newer computing platforms. The televised retailer is a
global organization with multiple operation centers located in North America,
Europe and Asia. They required rapid implementation of a low risk solution and
awarded the contract to Speedware in 2006. The successful implementation of
the modernization solution took 16 months and involved a phased approach meant
to lessen risk of any business interruption and ensure on-time completion.
    "Our greatest challenge in this project was the tight time frame. The
customer's operations were approaching maximum capacity and they were
anticipating a large spike in volume in the near future. As a result of our
expertise and our automated tools, the project was completed on time," said
Andy Kulakowski, General Manager of Speedware. "We are very pleased with the
success of this project and the positive working relationships that developed
as a result. We continue to work closely with our client and have won
additional contracts as a result of our success."
