    TAMPA, Fla., April 3 /PRNewswire/ --
 Global Imaging Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:   GISX) announced today that its Chicago
 Group, a Global core company, has completed its structuring for growth.
 Global President and CEO Tom Johnson called the effort "a marriage of two
 strong companies which will continue their dominating approach to the Chicago
 metropolitan market."  The group has nine offices located throughout the area.
     He said, "Both Distinctive Business Products and Column Office Equipment
 continue to stand alone with their existing sales and service organizations.
 Now, they share a more efficient, combined back office support organization."
     Mr. Johnson announced the appointment of Mike Elrod as president of
 Distinctive Business Products, replacing John Cosich who resigned earlier.
 Mr. Elrod has spent 22 years in the office equipment industry and 10 years
 with Distinctive, most recently as executive vice president and general
 manager.
     Mr. Johnson also announced that Frank Gaspari, president of Column Office
 Equipment, has assumed the additional duties as president of the Chicago
 Group.  A co-founder of Column which was acquired by Global in December 1999,
 Mr. Gaspari has spent 15 years in the industry.
     Global Imaging Systems offers middle-market customers a one-stop shop for
 office imaging solutions.  The company provides sale and service of automated
 office equipment, network integration services, electronic presentation
 systems, and document imaging management systems.  Global is also a
 disciplined, profitable consolidator in the highly fragmented office imaging
 solutions industry.

 statements, including statements relating to opportunities in and performance
 of the imaging industry, future product and service offerings, future revenues
 projections, target growth rates, and the timing, number and completion of
