CNT’s Enterprise Integration Solutions Division Becomes Propelis
Popular Enterprise/Access and InVista Products Rebranded
Propelis EAi and Propelis BPm

London, April 2nd 2001– CNT® announced that its Enterprise Integration Solutions Division has been renamed Propelis Software to enhance focus and visibility for this separate business. The company also said that its highly regarded Enterprise/Access and InVista products have been renamed under the Propelis brand. (NASDAQ: CMNT)

Propelis provides a range of products and solutions that integrate new CRM, ERP and eCommerce environments with legacy information systems in the fastest time-frame possible. Graphical interfaces enable the simple and rapid development of complex processes and conditional logic to deliver business advantages through improved workflow. Propelis enables the rapid, real-time access to mission critical legacy systems.

Thomas Hudson, President and Chief Executive Officer of both CNT and Propelis, said, “The name Propelis provides us with the perfect platform for our products and services. Propelis connotes speed and upward motion – and our software transforms business vision into reality faster than any other alternative.” He continued, “Propelis expertly melds superior, scaleable technology to connect past and present systems, and, for a comparatively low-cost investment, propels our customers’ operations into the future at the speed of business.”

Propelis began as a division of CNT in 1997. The unit was spun off as a wholly owned subsidiary in 2000, and subsequently renamed Propelis in March 2001. Propelis develops, markets and services software for established companies around the world facing the challenges inherent in
e-business, particularly time-to-market and reuse of existing applications and information.

Propelis solutions provide a rapid, low-risk track to Web-based initiatives through business process management and enterprise application integration software solutions that leverage existing investments and resources to bring together disparate systems, data sources and decision-makers.

David Edge, Director of Business Development and Marketing for Propelis, commented: “The UK operation has grown substantially over the last few years and we now have a significant list of major customers in retail, finance and utilities. Our software is now a critical element for all organisations that want to take advantage of their existing infrastructure to rapidly exploit eBusiness opportunities in the most cost-effective manner.”

Propelis EAi and Propelis BPm reinforce new brand identity
To support the Propelis name and build a solid brand identity in its markets, the business’s software solutions have been rebranded. Its Enterprise/Access software, known widely as a leading solution for real-time legacy system integration with Siebel and other customer relationship management (CRM)/e-business applications, has been renamed Propelis EAi (Enterprise Access integrator). The popular software integrates data and processes with multiple packaged applications, frameworks and client environments.

InVista, Propelis’ recently introduced business process management solution, has become Propelis BPm (Business Process manager). This innovative software integrates mission-critical business processes, applications, information, and most importantly – people – across the enterprise. It lets customers graphically map their vision, automatically incorporating the functionality they need for business process management. Propelis BPm’s process layer provides flash-forward implementation by coordinating and automating traditional processes – without coding or affecting existing systems.

Propelis partners with leading suppliers of business applications such, Siebel, to offer product specific integration that further extends the functionality of these technologies.

Propelis solutions are ideally suited to the needs of large, established companies in the financial services, telecommunications, utilities, and manufacturing sectors. Propelis customers include AT&T Canada, AXA, Dixons, Dyson, Chase Bank, Citibank, FFIC, Foxtel, GUS, Lloyd’s TSB, Verizon, Quick & Reilly, Telecom Asia and Telcel.
