Edmund Industrial Optics Receives Award From International Software Company for Best Use of Enterprise-Wide Software Suite

Edmund Industrial Optics Saves $1 Million in Nine Months by Reducing Inventory With Made2Manage(R) Enterprise Business System

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 25, 2003-- Made2Manage Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:MTMS - News), a leading provider of enterprise software for small and midsize manufacturers and distributors with revenues of less than $250 million, announced today that Edmund Industrial Optics, based in Barrington, N.J., has received Made2Manage Systems' 2003 Summit Award for Best Use of the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System. Edmund implemented the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System in February 2002.

The Best Use of the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System award is given to a Made2Manage Systems' customer that has demonstrated excellence in utilizing multiple applications of the Made2Manage Enterprise Business System. Award recipients illustrate how the Made2Manage product suite has improved their overall business performance and display steady business growth, a strong return on investment, and a passion for implementing and mastering new technologies.

"We are very pleased to recognize Edmund Industrial Optics with a 2003 Summit Award," said Dave Wortman, CEO of Made2Manage Systems. "Edmund has boldly demonstrated how the Made2Manage system can help small and midsize manufacturers streamline operations to reach significant cost savings, greater efficiencies, and improved collaboration across the enterprise."

According to Stan Oskiera, vice president of operations at Edmund, the Made2Manage system replaced an aging legacy system that could no longer support the changing business processes required by the company's rapid growth into global markets. The Made2Manage system has brought about significant benefits at Edmund in terms of continuous operational improvement and cost savings.

"The Made2Manage system has helped Edmund reduce inventory levels for a savings of $1 million in just nine months," Oskiera said. "Edmund's physical inventories are completed in less than one and a half days with tremendous accuracy since we can take advantage of the data that flows seamlessly through the Made2Manage system. We also added a significant number of new products to our twice-yearly catalogs while still maintaining a significant inventory decrease. The Made2Manage system makes us extremely efficient at what we do."

According to Oskiera, Edmund's use of the Made2Manage system over the past year has helped the company achieve a noticeable improvement in making on-time shipments and a 40-percent reduction in back orders. Edmund also relies on the Made2Manage system to maintain accurate job costs, and provide real-time data for more accurate and profitable product pricing.

The enterprise-wide benefits of the Made2Manage system also have helped Edmund improve the communication and collaboration between its headquarters and international offices. "Now we are able to share this data in real time with our remote offices in the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany and Singapore on a daily basis. As Edmund expands its global presence, we are confident that the Made2Manage system will continue to contribute to our success," said Oskiera.
