London, 14 May 2001 - Bowstreet today announced that it has joined the Cisco iQ Ecosystem Program. As a member, Bowstreet will work with Cisco Systems to deliver dynamic e-business software solutions.

The Cisco iQ Ecosystem Program is part of an overall Cisco iQ initiative intended to help companies understand their “Internet QuotientÔ” - or “iQ” - critical to achieving competitive advantage in today’s internet economy. Online resources on the iQ web site address internet business solutions from customer care and workforce optimisation to supply-chain management. The Cisco iQ Ecosystem Program consists of application vendors, systems integrators and consultants, which when combined with Cisco’s expertise and architectures, help to deliver these end-to-end solutions.

“As a valued member of Cisco’s iQ Ecosystem Program, we look forward to joining with Cisco and other Cisco iQ Ecosystem partners to offer customers premier end-to-end solutions,” said Bowstreet vice president, business development, Kristen Brown. “Bowstreet’s web services automation system will be complemented by solutions from Cisco and other Cisco iQ Ecosystem partners, enabling us to significantly extend our market reach.”

As a member of the Program, Bowstreet can enter into joint sales and marketing initiatives with Cisco and other Cisco iQ Ecosystem partners to target Bowstreet’s web services automation system - comprising the Business Web Factory and Business Web Portal Solutions - to vertical industries including financial services, manufacturing, medical and retail.

Bowstreet’s products allow companies to achieve exponential economies of scale across multiple, complex e-business initiatives. The BowstreetÔ Business Web Factory, a web services automation platform, dynamically assembles, automatically changes and mass customised e-business applications. Using the Business Web Factory, companies can aggregate disparate e-business initiatives on a single, vendor-neutral platform that provides richer, more streamlined user experiences to key constituencies, such as employees, partners and customers.
