Dublin, 8th July 2002 -- eWare, the CRM Solutions provider, announces that IONA (NASDAQ: IONA) has successfully deployed eWare in its Sales and Marketing divisions across Europe. eWare provides a total closed loop system that provides critical business information and reports for its customer-facing staff and management.

Users can track, manage and report on prospects at all stages of the sales cycle providing IONA with greater visibility of information upon which to act and plan. Having successfully deployed eWare in the EMEA territory, IONA will now deploy throughout the rest of its global organisation in North America and Asia.

IONA is a leading e-Business Platform provider for Web Services Integration. The company undertook a rigorous selection process and chose eWare due to the overwhelmingly positive user feedback and the technical architecture that enables the system to be rolled out rapidly across the multinational’s offices.

eWare’s architecture has enabled the solution to go live in the 7 main European offices within the same week; in Dublin, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Reading, Milan and Zurich. The solution also had the flexibility to be integrated into the existing IT investment that IONA had made in its

data resources – a critical feature for well-established companies with a wealth of customer information in different geographies and no different systems. eWare has gone live within 3 months.

“eWare was selected in the first instance by the sales and marketing users who liked how and what it delivered. ”, explained Colin Rogan CIO, IONA. “We had a shortlist which featured the older client-server CRM companies on it, but nothing else matched the stringent criteria that we laid down. Also, eWare’s web services vision was compelling and tied in with our own which allows the system to grow with us as a company.”

“We’re delighted that IONA is using eWare,” says Ivan MacDonald CEO and Founder, eWare. “The deployment schedule was aggressive but delivered on time and this ability marks eWare out again amongst our competitors in the CRM market. eWare brings the flexibility and integration expertise that companies with large customer bases and much customer information need. Only eWare, I believe, could have delivered so much so soon and so widely.“
