Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Savvion, Inc.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Savvion(TM), Inc., a
 provider of business process management software that allows companies to
 operate at peak efficiency, today announced its membership in the Business
 Process Management Initiative (BPMI.org), a group of industry software
 providers committed to the establishment and development of software standards
 that promote the integration of internal and external enterprise business
 processes.
     BPMI.org is the latest standards group in which Savvion has chosen to
 participate in.  The company already plays an active role in such efforts as
 ebXML, WfMC and RosettaNet.  Through its participation in such efforts,
 Savvion is pioneering open standards solutions that break down enterprise
 barriers, assuring the most efficient communication between corporate
 departments and trading partners.
     Automating business operations and improving process management has become
 increasingly important among the Fortune 1000, especially with the current
 economic downturn.  According to InformationWeek's 2001 Outlook survey, more
 than 80 percent of IT executives ranked streamlining business processes as a
 top five goal in 2001.
      "Standards are critical as the need for effective business solutions
 moves forward at lightning speed," said Dr. Ketabchi, Savvion founder and CEO.
 "We believe these collaborative efforts will smooth the way for thousands of
 companies to quickly adopt open standards that will allow them to maintain
 agility and participate more effectively in the Internet economy."
     The payoff of automating and managing business processes is significant.
 Savvion estimates the return on investment on BusinessManager applications
 range from 20 to more than 90 percent of the overall cost of business
 processes - both within the organization and with outside trading partners.
