Made2Manage Systems and Infoscan Software Systems Partner to Deliver a Warehouse Management Solution to Small and Midsize Manufacturers

Customers to Benefit From Comprehensive Solution That Meets Both Their Enterprise and Distribution Needs

INDIANAPOLIS and MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Made2Manage Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: MTMS - News), a leading provider of comprehensive enterprise software for small and midsize manufacturers, and Infoscan Software Systems, a leading provider of warehouse management and data collection software for warehouse and distribution-based organizations, today announced a partnership that will unite the Infoscan Warehouse Management System with the Made2Manage® Enterprise Business System. The partnership provides the small and midsize manufacturing market with a fully integrated and comprehensive supply chain management solution enhanced by Infoscan's warehouse management solution at a fraction of the cost typically offered by larger technology vendors.

By partnering with Infoscan, the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System and its supply chain management product suite, M2M(TM) SCM, now offer a truly comprehensive solution that satisfies customers with both manufacturing and distribution requirements, particularly in industries such as sporting goods, consumer items, store fixtures, industrial hardware and printing/publishing materials. Made2Manage's solution fully supports warehouse planning, layout, tracking, replenishment, transaction support and logistics.

Under the terms of the agreement, Infoscan's wireless warehouse management solution will be marketed to Made2Manage Systems' customer base of more than 1,600 small and midsize manufacturing operations throughout North America.

Today, small and midsize manufacturers feel the crunch of hard economic times, yet, like their Fortune 500 cousins up-market, they are expected to execute global sourcing, facilitate shorter product life-cycles and handle increased customer demands. Manufacturers considering capital purchases to address these competitive pressures are demanding solutions that deliver rapid and demonstrable return on investment.

"Made2Manage understands the market demands faced by our customer base and the necessity to dramatically reduce the costs associated with the physical operations of their businesses," said Dave Wortman, chief executive officer of Made2Manage Systems. "Effective warehouse resource planning offers dynamic savings in labor, inventory, management and customer service. The integrated solution formed by the Infoscan partnership will help our customers achieve their operational and business goals."

"Far and away, Made2Manage Systems had one of the best business systems and reputation for customer support among all the potential reseller partners we sought out," said Donald C. Lies, chief executive officer of Infoscan. "Infoscan's Microsoft VB and SQL technology infrastructure makes it completely compatible with the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System, providing an almost identical look and feel. Customers will experience no learning curve downtime and can immediately reap the product's benefits."

Indianapolis-based Harlan Bakeries is experiencing continued growth and needed a warehouse management solution that would increase efficiencies and productivity. "We moved more than 500 million bagels last year to customers like McDonald's and Einstein's Bagels," said Harlan's executive vice president, Doug Harlan. "We needed a live, just-in-time warehouse management solution that would extend our Made2Manage business system and be easy to implement," Harlan said.
