    SAN FRANCISCO, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Allegis(TM) Corporation
 (www.allegis.com), a leading software provider that enables sell-side
 collaborative commerce, today announced the availability of the Allegis
 eBusiness Suite version 5.0, the only offering on the market that enables
 companies to both manage their traditional selling channels and evolve them
 into a collaborative business network within a single suite.
     The fifth version of the Allegis eBusiness Suite is now available in three
 packages, each addressing a specific, progressive step in channel evolution.
 The Channel Partner package helps companies establish and grow traditional
 indirect sales channels and strengthen partner relationships. The Sales
 Partner package allows companies to optimize channels for greater partner
 performance and intimacy, while integrating direct, indirect and Internet
 sales channels. Finally, the Market Partner package enables companies to
 extend their channels into online collaborative business networks.
     "Once companies realize measurable ROI from partner relationship
 management solutions, they become interested in leveraging their system to
 create more selling opportunities," said Karen Smith, senior analyst at the
 Aberdeen Group. "The Allegis eBusiness Suite is proven to deliver ROI from the
 outset, and also helps companies seize new revenue possibilities, which
 include private marketplaces, and the creation of more complex selling
 partnerships."
 
     New in the Suite:  Internationalization, Collaboration, Business Analytics
     Now with more than 30 individual components, the Allegis eBusiness Suite
 enhances the ability for Allegis customers and their selling partners to
 create new revenue opportunities and streamline existing business processes.
 Some of the highlights of the new release include:
 
     -- Internationalization -- within a single instance of the Allegis
        eBusiness Suite, administrators and partners can now view the system in
        multiple languages and currencies, allowing multi-national companies
        and their partners to coordinate and analyze their activities across
        global markets more effectively.
     -- Partner-to-Partner Collaboration -- Partners can leverage the Allegis
        suite to find complementary partners, build partner communities and
        collaborate on sales opportunities within a secure, personalized
        environment.
     -- Complementary Vendor Collaboration -- Allegis customers can support the
        integration of complementary product offerings into their partner
        network through multi-supplier cataloging, enabling their partners to
        deliver complex solutions and greater value to end customers.
     -- Advanced Business Analytics -- The Allegis eBusiness Suite includes a
        robust data mining and OLAP reporting engine. Allegis customers now
        have the ability to perform custom, ad-hoc analysis as well as access
        to 40 new standard reports.
 
     "This latest release of the Allegis eBusiness Suite is focused on helping
 our customers and their partners establish new forms of competitive advantage
 in their respective markets," said Mark Morrissey, vice president of product
 management.  "The new features and capabilities we've added give Global 2000
 companies many innovative revenue possibilities, as well as ways to maintain
 partner loyalty and end customer satisfaction."
