    ATLANTA, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Ross Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROSS), a leading world class provider of
 enterprise management software and e-business solutions for the mid-market
 process manufacturers, today announced the signing of a multi-site agreement
 with the Kluber Group of companies.
     The German-based Kluber Group is a specialty lubricant manufacturer, with
 26 subsidiaries and 14 production facilities across the globe.  The agreement
 will see the full iRenaissance process ERP product suite delivered in the
 first phase to locations in the USA and Mexico.
     A key criteria for selecting Ross Systems over other ERP vendors was the
 capability of iRenaissance to deliver exceptional process manufacturing
 functionality, including lot tracking, private label sales, and full global
 financial capabilities.  In addition to superior functionality, the
 iRenaissance multiple language capability and worldwide support made Ross the
 system of choice.
     "We are absolutely delighted to have Kluber join the Ross family of
 users," said Rod Jones, Ross' President.  "With only six weeks from the
 initial inquiry through to the signed contract, it is a tribute not only to
 the iRenaissance product itself but to the multi-national team who worked
 closely with the customer to ensure success.  The initial Kluber agreement
 covers their first three locations, and we are delighted to have ended the
 third quarter on such a high note.  Once again, Ross has proven to be the
 system of choice for global process manufacturing companies."

 (ERP) and management software and e-business solutions for process
