    NORTHVILLE, Mich., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Further strengthening its
 position as a leading e-commerce solution provider, Synapz has recently landed
 several new contracts to provide its Eclipz product to six automotive

 materials procurement and fulfillment system -- will be utilized by Acadia
 Polymers, AMAK Brake, KSR International, NEWCOR, Inc., SEI Brakes Inc. and
 TRAM, Inc.
     "These contracts further validate our position in the automotive
 marketplace as a leading provider of low-cost e-commerce solutions," said
 Robert C. Paul, president and COO of Synapz.  "EDI, a technology that was once
 too costly and complex to implement, is now cost effective and easy to use
 through Eclipz.  Customers also gain a demonstrated return on investment in
 less than 90 days."
     Eclipz allows a supplier to receive orders, confirm shipments and send
 orders to suppliers via the Internet directly from the customers' procurement
 system, inventory system or shop floor system.  It revolutionizes the
 extremely complex process of data exchange and order fulfillment for
 automotive suppliers.  Eclipz allows companies to gain a competitive advantage
 by decreasing or eliminating inventory carrying costs and reducing premium
 shipping costs.
     It also offers a number of integrated applications from best-of-breed
 providers to increase the value and functionality of the product for the

 management and engineering systems.
