     MobShop's software, offered on both an installed and hosted basis, pools
 orders from multiple buyers into high-volume, collaborative transactions,
 creating compelling economic incentives for buyers and suppliers.  Real-time
 demand aggregation has emerged as an essential tool for improving the economic
 value of e-marketplaces.  Demand aggregation has been proven to enhance buyer
 purchasing power to achieve valuable cost savings, while allowing sellers to
 generate volume sales and improve overall marketplace liquidity.
     MobShop plans to offer demand aggregation functionality to Commerce One
 e-marketplace clients via the Global Trading Web(TM), the world's largest
 business-to-business trading community, with members across 54 countries on
 six continents.  Customers selecting the MobShop solution will be able to
 integrate the technology into the Commerce One MarketSite(TM) Operating
 Environment, the foundation of every Commerce One e-marketplace, providing a
 robust, open and scalable platform for e-commerce and collaboration.
     "We believe MobShop's real-time demand aggregation technology is an
 important tool for improving liquidity and economic value in e-marketplaces,"
 said Thomas McCleary, senior director, Business Development for Commerce One.
 "We are pleased to offer MobShop's solutions as an option to the Commerce One
 e-marketplace community."
     "Commerce One is intelligently selecting technologies that compliment
 their already impressive e-commerce business solution," said Jim Rose, CEO and
 co-founder of MobShop. "Customers who license the MobShop solution will be
 able to integrate the solution  into the Commerce One MarketSite(TM) Operating
 Environment to access greater functionality in the form of cost-saving and
 revenue-building technology."
