Welwyn Garden City, Herts. —15th January 2002 — Heroix Corporation, a leader in IT infrastructure management software, today announced that it would be partnering with Quattro Software (part of Quattro Consulting, the UK’s premiere iSeries-AS/400 technical consultancy), to distribute SysChecker software for the iSeries-AS/400.

SysChecker automates the management of iSeries-AS/400 in areas where labour intensive tasks are prone to human error. Secondly, SysChecker acts as a discovery agent, ensuring the system is running and configured as one would expect, unlike other iSeries-AS400 systems management products that wait for a system generated message to act upon. SysChecker does not require message manager software to provide benefits; alone it provides enhanced system monitoring and a high level of automated management. Furthermore, SysChecker is also capable of monitoring job queues to ensure it never has more than the requisite number of jobs in it.

This new relationship now gives Heroix the opportunity of broadening its system management capabilities to include unique solutions for the iSeries-AS/400 platform. Heroix is able to offer SysChecker's automated fault management solution and integrate into Heroix' powerful product suite. It is now possible to monitor iSeries-AS/400 systems, automatically fix problems and notify via Heroix Event Management Architecture using an integrated set of software tools, just like you would for OpenVMS, Unix and Windows NT/2000 systems.

Stephen Skinner, Managing Director of Quattro Software comments "The integration of two software products from companies who are both leaders on their own chosen platforms is always newsworthy. The structure of the Heroix Robo product suite is a perfect fit for our own SysChecker product - both companies will benefit greatly form this relationship. I am delighted to be associated and working with Heroix".

"We are delighted to be working with Quattro to address our customers' requirements for the monitoring and management of iSeries-AS/400 platforms," said Paul Roxan, Managing Director of Heroix. "SysChecker strengthens our ability to provide IT organisations with an enterprise-wide pro-active solution to understand and correct problems before they impact the end-user." Paul continues, "Alliances with leading-edge companies like Quattro strengthen our partnership program and with this integration, IT organisations can achieve a greater end-to-end management of their multi-platform environment."

About Quattro Consulting

Quattro Consulting was formed in 1997 to provide Technical Consultancy and Services to the IBM iSeries-AS/400 marketplace. The directors of Quattro realised that most iSeries-AS/400 related service providers were not specialists on the technical aspects of iSeries-AS/400, with their expertise in software development, marketing and support. Quattro Consulting offer a specialised service, assisting users to enable their iSeries-AS/400 to operate to its full capacity and capability, irrespective of the application that is being run. Quattro have been involved with the iSeries-AS/400 since its release in 1988. With over 50 years collective AS/400 experience between them they have gained an unrivalled level of skill and expertise in all areas of iSeries-AS/400, on both small and large customer installations.
