    CLEVELAND, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Flashline.com, Inc., the leading
 provider of software component reuse solutions, today announced that it has
 won two awards for its vision and efforts to transform software development
 through the use of reusable software components. The company has received a
 NorTech 2001 Innovation Award and an Inside Business TechKnow Award.
     Flashline provides companies with the software component products and
 services necessary to quickly develop powerful ebusiness solutions. With
 today's time-to-market constraints, corporations are continually seeking
 innovative technologies to develop software under shortened development
 schedules. Component-based development enables businesses to dramatically
 increase productivity and quickly develop highly reliable and flexible
 systems.
     The Northeast Ohio Regional Technology Coalition's annual NorTech
 Innovation Awards, sponsored by Squires, Sanders & Dempsey, KeyBank, Ernst &
 Young, and the Ohio Department of Development, acknowledge specific
 innovations developed and implemented by organizations in Northeast Ohio.  The
 award recognizes Flashline's approach and contributions to ebusiness,
 including a wide range of world-class software component products, services
 and resources that help organizations quickly build, test and deploy high-
 quality software solutions. A panel of independent judges selected Flashline
 to receive an award out of hundreds of nominations.  Flashline joins a
 distinguished list of winners, including Ferro Corporation, Goodyear Tire &
 Rubber Company and TRW Aeronautical Systems Inc.
     "Flashline empowers businesses with tools that offer new and better ways
 of creating software," says Ben Keller, program director of Enterprise
 Development, Inc.  "Flashline's products and services help businesses develop
 software faster, better, and cheaper-an objective that is in-line with
 NorTech's mission to champion initiatives that foster the formation of
 technology businesses and improve the climate for entrepreneurship."
     Inside Business magazine acknowledged the ebusiness achievements of
 Flashline's founder and CEO Charles Stack with a TechKnow Award.  Presented in
 conjunction with the magazine's Know Show, the TechKnow awards honor Northeast
 Ohio's leaders in information technology for their innovative use of IT to
 create social and economic benefits for their companies, customers and
 communities.  This is the first time an individual has been honored with a
 TechKnow Award for contributions to the Northeast Ohio IT community.
     "Charles Stack's accomplishments as an Internet pioneer and his unique
 perspective on the software industry are bringing national attention to the
 Northeast Ohio business sector, creating enormous economic benefits for our
 community," says Steve Gleydura, editor of Inside Business.
     "As a leader in the software development community, Flashline has been
