Latin American ASP Leader Partners with CA's interBiz Online Group

interBiz eCommerce Suite and BizWorks Empower Entire TP's

Procurement Solutions for Vertical Markets



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

   ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- interBiz
 Online Group, a business unit of the eBusiness applications division of
 Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA), today announced that Entire
 Technology Partners (Entire TP), a leading Application Services Provider (ASP)
 company in Latin America, will use the interBiz eCommerce Suite(TM) to
 establish a portal for e-procurement services. The portal will allow Entire TP
 to serve vertical markets in Brazil, ranging from health care to sugar cane
 production and processing.
     In the initial phase of the project, interBiz Online Group will create an
 online procurement system (NetCana) for the sugar cane and alcohol industry.
 Buyers can access the online procurement system for maintenance, repair and
 overhaul (MRO) items via a standard Web browser, with the ability to select
 products from various vendors.  Each user can define customized purchasing
 criteria and catch any transaction errors.
     For the health care sector, interBiz will set up online procurement and
 storefront systems for regional groups of care physicians, which will be
 offered through the Unimeds Confederation of the State of Sao Paulo, one of
 Entire TP's partners.  The BizWorks portal will provide real-time access to
 medical suppliers and product catalogs.  It will also offer community bulletin
 boards that facilitate communication among physicians as well as between care
 physicians and the Confederation.  In addition, patients will get assistance
 in finding medical care in their local area through powerful search engine
 capabilities.
     "Using interBiz technology, we can offer our customers reliable Web-based
 solutions that enhance their market value by allowing them to work more
 efficiently," said Eduardo Colli, president of Entire TP.  "For example,
 buyers using the procurement portal will find the best prices, spend less time
 on the process, and potentially cut the costs of purchases by ten to fifteen
 percent.  At the same time, we are also dealing with time-sensitive markets,
 such as health care, which will benefit from improved communication systems
 over the Web."
     In addition, interBiz Online Group will enable Entire TP to create a
 superior workflow engine using the power of BizWorks. Providing an enhanced
 approval chain, BizWorks will enable approval by item rather than simply
 through traditional hierarchies.
     "We are thrilled about our partnership with Entire TP, a leading
 technology infrastructure provider in Latin America," said Eli Goodrich, vice
 president, interBiz Online Group. "Companies in vertical markets increasingly
 recognize the power of integrated e-solutions that offer customization
 features.  Enhanced productivity through e-technology has become a reality and
 interBiz and Entire TP will lead the way to the future."
     The interBiz eCommerce Suite consists of interBiz Procure and interBiz
 Store. interBiz Procure speeds, simplifies and streamlines the B2B purchasing
 process through minimizing procurement time and costs while offering greater
 purchasing control.  interBiz Store supplies the tools required to extend a
 B2B or B2C storefront to the Internet while integrating online sales with
 back-office applications and data.
     BizWorks provides a single integrated solution to the most challenging
 issues facing companies as they transform their businesses from "Brick &
 Mortar" enterprises to tomorrow's "Brick & Click" hybrid organizations.
 BizWorks consolidates all the information assets of an organization by
 providing a single, centralized view of the extended enterprise in real-time.
 BizWorks leverages CA's leading technologies, including Jasmineii, Unicenter
 TNG, and Neugents, to help customers consolidate information from all segments
 of their businesses, collaborate with partners and suppliers and leverage Web-
 based information resources to create a global view of all of the factors
 affecting their success.
