Geac Announces Development Partnership With Indigo Software for New RFID Capabilities in System21 Aurora

    Studley, England (ots/PRNewswire) - Geac(R) (TSX: GAC ; NASDAQ: GEAC), has announced a software development partnership with Indigo Software to build Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) capabilities for Geac's flagship Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) product - System21 Aurora. The new capabilities will be a core new component of System21 Aurora version 2.2, the next major release which is scheduled for general release early 2006.

    Richard Smith, VP of operations for Geac System21, said:

    "Many of our customers who supply the retailers within the fast moving consumer packaged goods industry are now looking towards initial projects for the adoption of RFID technology. This is becoming increasingly important in our market, not just as technology advances or as a way of improving the efficiency of internal processes, but we find the real driver for RFID adoption is commercial compliance. Some of our customers are having to adopt because that is what their customers are mandating. This is going to become a compelling issue for many customers in the next 12 months. Yet this compliance issue extends beyond RFID technology into mandated product structures and definitions - either commercial compliance mandates or standards body/market mandates. Again, these are compelling issues that require a response from us."

    Peter McLane, Managing Director of Indigo Software, said:

    "We're delighted to be selected as Geac's RFID development partner. For the last 17 years we have been a vital partner for the provision of Automated Warehousing solutions particularly to many Geac System21 customers. Recently we have been talking extensively to a number of them about their requirements for forthcoming RFID pilots. We're now taking this knowledge and experience into this development project to provide a single solution which will be tightly integrated with System21 for our joint customers."

    Leading RFID industry analyst, Nigel Montgomery from AMR Research, said:

    "Recognising that RFID is only part of a new wave of sensor-based technologies that will revolutionise global supply networks over coming years, Geac and its partner Indigo, are developing a solution to enable customers to leverage these new-wave technologies. Customers should be safe in the knowledge that their core systems can not only handle the volumes of data, but the new solution also protects customer investments by providing an integration layer that will operate with all new merging technologies. In addition, System21 leverages incoming information for performance improvement using Geac's own leading Business Performance Management solution. Geac has learned from the mistakes of other providers, who have developed rigid integration to back-office systems. Emerging technologies require open- integration flexibility if customers are to reduce their overall total cost of ownership (TCO)."
