Made2Manage Systems Acquires Products From ADS Information Systems

Agreement Reinforces Company Strategy to Foster Direct, Proactive Customer Relationships and Provide Comprehensive Network of Professional Services and Support

INDIANAPOLIS, September 10, 2004—Made2Manage Systems Inc., a leading provider of enterprise-class business solutions that deliver ongoing value for manufacturers, today announced the close of its acquisition of certain assets of ADS Software LLC and ADS Information Systems, Inc. (ADS), a former value-added reseller of Made2Manage Systems. Under the terms of the agreement, Made2Manage Systems acquired the intellectual property rights to Made2Manage-centric products formerly owned by ADS.

“The acquisition of the ADS products represents another example of Made2Manage Systems’ ongoing commitment to maintain direct, proactive relationships with its manufacturing customers,” said Jeff Tognoni, president and CEO of Made2Manage Systems. “Bringing these customers into our comprehensive network of professional support and services is the best way to help them achieve continuous value from their Made2Manage system investment.”

The intellectual property acquired from ADS comprises software designed to augment and extend the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System. Specific ADS-branded products include Interactive Form Editor (IFE), IFE Plus!, Enhance!, Enhance!Plus, General Ledger Detail Audit (GLDA), and Point of Sale (POS).

“Made2Manage Systems remains committed to supporting the products its customers are using today for the long term—and this includes the set of tools we acquired from ADS,” said Jerry Staddon, vice president of development for Made2Manage Systems. “Decisions surrounding the long-term enhancement and direction of former ADS products will be part of an aggressive evaluation conducted by Made2Manage leadership team members and product experts over the next several months.”

Gary Forsberg, president of ADS, said, “I believe the transfer of the ADS products to Made2Manage has been a positive move for both companies, and we have been able to keep customer needs as the top priority.”
