CDC Software Completes First Stage of Its Strategic Investment in eBizNET Solutions, a Provider of Cloud-Based Supply Chain Execution Solutions

ATLANTA & SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CDC Software Corporation (NASDAQ: CDCS), a hybrid enterprise software provider of on-premise and cloud deployments, today announced it completed the first stage of its strategic investment in eBizNET Solutions Inc., a leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) supply chain execution solutions that also shares mutual customers with CDC Software. This marks the completion of CDC Software’s first cloud investment as part of CDC Software’s Strategic Cloud Investment Partner Program (SCIPP)

Under SCIPP, CDC Software plans to make minority investments in, and form strategic reselling partnerships with, companies offering cloud-based or point solutions which complement its enterprise solutions portfolio.

In addition to the strategic investment, CDC Software also plans a strategic relationship with Pittsburgh-based eBizNET Solutions whereby CDC Software is expected to become a cobranded reseller of eBizNET’s products and services globally. As part of strategic relationship, eBizNET Solutions and CDC Software plan to jointly offer an integrated solution of eBizNET and CDC Software’s solutions including CDC eCommerce and x-Alerts to potential customers of both companies.

eBizNET Solutions offers an integrated suite of on-demand SaaS Supply Chain Execution (SCE) solutions including warehouse management, transportation management, yard management, port and cargo terminal management, activity based billing and costing, and reverse logistics. Its customers include Fortune 500 companies located worldwide.

As part of this recent transaction, CDC Software may also lease its SaaS infrastructure globally to eBizNET Solutions, and in turn, CDC Software may utilize eBizNET’s consulting and systems integration services. In addition, eBizNET Solutions may also utilize CDC Software’s offshore development and support centers.

“We are excited that one of the world’s leading hybrid enterprise solutions company is now an investor in eBizNET Solutions and look forward to building a mutually successful partnership,” said Abhay Edlabadkar, CEO and president of eBizNET Solutions. “We believe that CDC Software’s investment can help us globally deploy our extensive SaaS based Supply Chain Cloud Platform that integrates all entities and aspects of a supply chain into a true ecosystem enabling collaboration, consolidation, facilitation and end-to-end visibility coupled with optimized and orchestrated execution in real time. We also believe that our strategic partnership with CDC Software will also allow us to rapidly expand globally, especially in high growth markets such as China, Latin America and India. Notably, this partnership can also offer our customers complementary integrated solutions that we believe can help enhance the performance and efficiency of their businesses.”

“We are very pleased to complete our investment and start our partnership with eBizNET Solutions,” said Bruce Cameron, president of CDC Software.” We believe this is a very synergistic partnership that can help CDC Software advance its hybrid model, and expand its SaaS product line, while offering our customers more options and flexibility in their solutions deployment. CDC Software’s eCommerce product line shares mutual customers with eBizNET products which further illustrates the synergies in this relationship. These new solutions further strengthen CDC Software’s position as a provider of hybrid enterprise solutions offering customers on-premise and cloud deployment options. We also believe that this transaction can further advance our goal of boosting maintenance and SaaS recurring revenue to approximately 70 percent of our total revenue in the next few years.“

This partnership and investment is expected to help further expand CDC Software’s rapidly growing cloud-based SaaS product portfolio and its commitment to operating under a hybrid software model. Since late last year, CDC Software has acquired three cloud-based companies and is in final negotiations to complete its investment in Marketbright, a SaaS marketing automation company, and to acquire a SaaS supply chain company, which would represent its largest SaaS acquisition to date.

New Benchmark Study by ABERDEEN GROUP Sponsored by eBizNET Defines On-Demand Supply Chain Process Capabilities Of Best-In-Class Companies

eBizNET has helped underwrite a benchmark report by The Aberdeen Group entitled "Supply Chain on Demand: Enable Flexible Business Processes" that clearly establishes the advantages enjoyed by users of on-demand applications in comparison to users of conventional on-premise systems for supply chain process management

The Aberdeen report analyzed data on business process capabilities from over 250 companies to identify key competency indicators, including the abilities to expedite new trading partnerships; support unique business processes for selective product categories, customers or channels; support electronic collaboration with global trading partners; enhance business-to-business connectivity, supply chain execution and planning; and achieve greater proficiency in transportation management and supply chain collaboration. Best-in-Class companies demonstrated substantially superior performance in all of those aspects and were far more likely to be users of on-demand applications. Companies of all sizes, across all industries, using on-demand supply chain applications are poised to excel in process capabilities, productivity, efficiency and collaboration, while reducing operating costs.

According to Bob Kennedy, eBizNET EVP of Business Development , "This report validates the numerous benefits of SaaS on-demand supply chain solutions for companies seeking to advance their adaptability in managing business processes and practices.

New ARC Report Names eBizNET as Leading Model for Offshore Development



eBizNET has been singled out by a leading industry analyst for its trailblazing and efficacious utilization of offshore resources.

An ARC Advisory Group Study cites eBizNET as the premier Warehouse Management System company employing the offshore development model, or Global Service Delivery model. According to Steve Banker, Ph.D., Service Director for Supply Chain Management at ARC, eBizNET is the industry leader in reducing costs and raising profit margins by designing a business model that strategically utilizes off-shore facilities in other countries, specifically India.

"eBizNET is leveraging the offshore development model better than any other company that I have come across," Banker is quoted as saying in the May 2007 study, entitled Warehouse Management Systems Worldwide Outlook. "eBizNET is also doing offshore software development and taking this model further than others. The power of this model is demonstrated by the extraordinarily fast growth of Indian IT firms that rely on it."

Banker was impressed with the company's progressive use of offshore development and described eBizNET as an "intriguing" company that caught his attention as he completed research for the Worldwide Outlook report.



DC Velocity Magazine Shines a Spotlight on eBizNET

eBizNET is one of just a few pioneering supply chain software providers spotlighted in the October 2007 issue of DC Velocity magazine.

In an article titled "Trickle Down Technology," author Lisa Terry how eBizNET is offering on-demand, software-as-a-service warehouse management products to small and midsized businesses (SMBs), and in doing so transforming the warehouse management systems industry. By offering web-based software to SMBs, eBizNET is giving them the opportunity to leapfrog into the digital age - a shift that has previously been impossible due to the prohibitive costs of software and hardware.

According to Terry, the eBizNET software suite enables SMB's to reap the transformative benefits of a SaaS solution without the expenditure and complexity of creating an on-premise system. On-demand, web-based applications provide SMBs with a chance to adopt the latest technology plus gain the substantial advantages of lower costs, reduced risk and rapid implementation. Industry experts, including Steve Banker, director of supply chain management for ARC Advisory Group, believe that there is a healthy and growing market for low cost, on-demand warehouse management systems delivered via the Internet.

Bob Kennedy, eBizNET executive vice-president for business development, is quoted in the article, articulating the quality of the support and services that the company provides along with the eBizNET suite software. Customers are likely to be pleasantly surprised, said Kennedy, by such exceptional responsiveness to customer needs. Aberdeen Group research director Nari Viswanthan states that early response to hosted supply chain software has been positive; in fact, he says, companies using on-demand warehouse management systems claim that "It exceeded expectations in the cost of software, implementation time and cost of ownership."

The article emphasizes the attention that eBizNET pays to the business processes of its customers. This aspect of implementation is critically important for SMB companies that are engaging on-demand WMS software applications, in order to assure a smooth transition to the new system. eBizNET provides that, with an implementation process that focuses on a comprehensive review of the customer's business processes.Learn More
