 software companies, will be co-exhibiting at the ePharma Summit April 17-19,
 2001, in Philadelphia.  Alliance Consulting is one of 50 Three Star partners
 selected as charter members of the BEA Star Partner Program, announced in
 February 2001.
     The BEA Star Partner Program offers three levels of benefit, with the
 Three Star level as the highest.  Three Star membership is reserved for
 companies with established BEA partner relationships that meet stringent

 Team(TM) approach.  This enables clients to benefit from solutions tailored to
 their specific needs, designed and implemented by experts in their field.  BEA

 choice, based on its strength in providing mission critical applications and
 its ability to support rapid growth.  By developing solutions based on BEA,

 applications, helping reduce their time-to-market and tightly integrating

 systems.  Using BEA WebLogic Server(TM), Alliance provided the client a
 foundation for more rapid development and enabled them to improve the
