Group Logic to Help Vio Users Transition to MassTransit

Award-Winning Software Offers Immediate Solution,

Delivers High Return on Investment



Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Group Logic, Inc.

    ARLINGTON, Va., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Group Logic, a leading vendor of
 network workflow software and services to the print media industry in North
 America and Europe, announced today that it has developed a transition plan to
 migrate customers of Vio Worldwide to Group Logic's award-winning MassTransit
 Enterprise file transfer software, following Vio's announcement that it will
 discontinue its private network file transfer services by June 30.
     MassTransit Enterprise 4.0, a recipient of the Hot Picks recognition at
 the recent Seybold Seminars tradeshow, is easy-to-use, plug-and-play software
 that can be implemented quickly, with no disruption of file transfer
 capability.  Vio customers have several options for obtaining network
 bandwidth for using MassTransit Enterprise.  They can use any existing
 Internet connections not provided by Vio; take advantage of telecommunications
 providers' offers to convert Vio's T-1 or E-1 connections to Internet
 connections; or obtain telecommunications services with assistance from Group
 Logic and its distributors.
     MassTransit Enterprise provides all the features Vio customers are
 accustomed to as well as the freedom to choose telecommunications providers.
 It will allow former Vio customers to perform file transfer using a Web
 browser or hot folders, providing familiar interfaces and extreme ease of use
 for operators of all skill levels.  Files and folder hierarchies can be
 transmitted using the same simple drag-and-drop operation.  The product also
 offers email notification, logging and tracking, and remote proofing
 capabilities.
     "MassTransit is based on the assumption -- fortified by market research
 and comments from Group Logic's customers -- that companies prefer to make
 their own capital investment in this field," reported the March 26, 2001 issue
 of "Seybold Report on Publishing Systems."
     Group Logic, a 12-year-old corporation managed by its founders, offers the
 stability of a profitable software vendor, a proven reliable product, and
 extensive customer support resources. MassTransit Enterprise's feature set and
 performance reflect years of input from users such as Quebecor World, Wallace
 Computer Services, R. R. Donnelley, and other leading print services
 providers, as well as leading print services purchasers such as Kraft Foods,
 Kimberly-Clark, and The Limited Corporation.
     Through an exclusive arrangement with Group Logic, MassTransit Enterprise
 is distributed and supported in the United Kingdom and Europe by 2Di Ltd.,
 which was founded last year by former Vio senior executives who foresaw the
 current trend toward the use of affordable, customizable software solutions
 for managing file transfer needs.
     "We are delighted to offer a comprehensive, easy migration plan to enable
 Vio customers to simplify and take control of their digital file transfer
 activities," said Mike Simmonds, Chief Executive Officer of 2Di.  "MassTransit
 Enterprise will give them a flexible solution they can tailor to their
 individual needs."
