STREAMSERVE TO PROVIDE TOTAL COMMUNICATIONS SOLUTION FOR U.S. ARMY'S LOGISTICS MODERNIZATION PROGRAM Boston, MA and Moorestown, NJ - (September 23, 2002) - StreamServe today announced that it has won the competitive bid to provide communication services for the U.S. Army's Logistics Modernisation Program (LMP). Beginning in September, Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) and the LMP will deploy StreamServe's Business Communication Platform to manage global communications for all manufacturing, sourcing, distribution and transportation of goods and services related to the mobilisation of Army forces. During the implementation, StreamServe will work closely with CSC as they deploy the SAP enterprise resource planning system and deliver additional consulting and integration services required to reengineer and modernise the Army's logistics business processes. The LMP is one of several major Army modernisation initiatives supporting soldiers and various program management offices across the globe. The program was created to provide agile, reliable, and responsive services by leveraging best practices and technology that deliver world-class logistics and readiness to the warfighter and will advance with the challenges in the Army vision. As a complementary component to the Army's vision and mission, Team LMP selected StreamServe's single communication layer to enable the U.S. Army Materiel Command to reach its goals. Under the terms of the contract, StreamServe will team with CSC consultants to create an entirely seamless operation for the U.S. Army Materiel Command; once fully deployed, the StreamServe solution will interface directly with the newly implemented SAP system and produce over 2,000 reports and documents per day. Eventually, over 250,000 unique end-users, from field soldiers to office personnel to Army commanding officers, will have access to the reports via the Army's secure, password protected web portal. Users will be able to receive these communications in whatever format they request, including paper, fax, email, PDF, XML, or SMS via multiple electronic channels. Nick Earle, CEO of StreamServe said, "The U.S. Army/CSC contract is a significant win for StreamServe. It clearly reinforces our recent growth and increasing leadership position in the American market. In addition, this partnership with U.S. Army/CSC represents our ability to provide solutions to very large enterprises, and in particular, very large SAP installations." Hal Bennett, President of StreamServe Americas continued, "Our standing as the premier provider of Enterprise Business Communications software has clearly been validated by CSC and the U.S. Army's selection of our offering. StreamServe is playing a critical part in re-engineering processes for our country's defence system, and to be recognised in such an important arena is quite an honour. We are very pleased to announce this contract win and we look forward to working with both CSC and the U.S. Army."
