Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Noosh, Inc.

    BOSTON, Seybold Boston, April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Noosh, Inc.
 (www.noosh.com), a leading provider of collaborative, online solutions for
 enterprise communications, today announced the roll-out of Noosh Direct to its
 Inner Circle partners.  Noosh established the Inner Circle program as a means
 to integrate valuable customer feedback in the design, testing and deployment
 of all its products.  Noosh will unveil Noosh Direct, and demonstrate the
 product's functionality in the Noosh Booth #2815, and during a press
 conference to be held today at 12:30 p.m. EDT, in Room #204 in the Hynes
 Convention Center, Seybold Boston 2001.
     Noosh Direct puts the power of the Internet in the hands of print
 suppliers to help them better manage all of their client relations -- from
 quoting and order entry to handling changes and tracking orders.
     Noosh Direct is designed to dramatically improve the quality and
 productivity of printing sales and customer service.  Suppliers can automate
 the flow of information both within their company and with their customers.
 Any customer with a web browser and Internet access can review proposals and
 place orders online. Buyers can participate, whether or not they are a Noosh
 member.
     "By joining the Noosh Direct Inner Circle, Citation Press has a unique
 opportunity to contribute effectively to the positive design and functionality
 of Noosh Direct," said Jerry Hill, director of sales at Citation Press.
 "Noosh Direct will make our salespeople more efficient, and provide them with
 more time to do what they do best -- face-to-face calls."
     "As a member of the Noosh Direct Inner Circle, Waller Press works directly
 with the Noosh development team to ensure that printers needs are being
 addressed," said Dan Schmidt, vice president, Waller Press.  "These tools
 enabled by Noosh Direct provide the missing link between Waller and all of our
 customers."
     The demonstration today at Seybold Boston builds on Noosh' commitment as a
 company to work closely with its customers to enhance noosh.com and to provide
 affordable E-commerce solutions for both buyers and suppliers of enterprise
 communications.
     "Basically, we're balancing the e-Commerce equation," said
 Ofer Ben-Shachar, founder, president and CEO, Noosh.  "Print buyers who deploy
 Noosh across their company have the convenience of a single interface to deal
 with all of their suppliers.  Now, print suppliers who deploy Noosh Direct
 have a single interface for dealing with all of their customers."
     "Noosh Direct was designed to help printers improve customer service and
 increase sales productivity," said Dave Hannebrink, senior vice president of
 marketing and business development, Noosh.  "It puts them in control of
 communications, promotes their brand, and makes it easier for their customers
 to do business with them."
     Noosh Direct will be available for the commercial market in June 2001. If
 your company would like to participate in the Noosh Direct Inner Circle
 pre-release program, please contact Jim Taylor at Noosh: 650-320-6217.
