PRESS RELEASE

SOFTBRANDS ANNOUNCES NEW FEATURES IN LATEST RELEASE OF ITS PROPERTY
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, MEDALLION

Reading, Berkshire, UK - January 24, 2005 – For immediate release:

SoftBrands, a global supplier of enterprise application software, today announced the release
of Medallion 6.0, a popular Windows(R)-based property management system. The
enhancements to the product's functional capabilities will appeal to a broad range of hotel
customers.

Medallion is a comprehensive system with the flexibility to meet the technical requirements of
SoftBrands' customers. From premier and group properties to highly specialised boutiques
and city centre properties, it meets varied business and operational requirements. Medallion
is highly configurable so it may be matched to the way individual properties are managed,
such as selling by room type, or by rooms with packages, or negotiated rates.

Medallion 6.0 also includes:

* Increased support for additional geographies
* Support for double-byte languages, such as Chinese. The software has previously
been available in many European languages, but can now store and retrieve data, as
well as display all screen prompts and reports in Chinese. Other Asian languages will
be implemented through the year.
* Enhancements to rates and package management; travel agent and commissions
management; and account receivables. Improvements have been made to the
reservation, folio management and check out workflow, reducing the steps a user
takes in performing common operations.

"This latest release of Medallion reinforces SoftBrands' position in the hospitality software
marketplace. By including industry standard technology advancements, we are demonstrating
both our dedication to our customers and our commitment to the future viability of the
Medallion product," said Gareth Robinson, SoftBrands general manager, hospitality solutions.
