The alignment of Accolade with Microsoft technology is a key example of partnership efforts, and the benefits
have come through firmly in the latest release of our solution. Accolade Version 6.0 was a landmark release,
supported by Microsoft both in terms of R&D investment and marketing activity in Europe and America, and has
been very well received by market analysts. Having selected Sopheon in late 2004 as a supplier participant in its
Collaborative Product Development pilot program, Microsoft has judged the initiative to be a business success
and is now taking steps to implement it on a global scale. Microsoft also continues to introduce potential
partners to Sopheon.
Sopheon’s drive to sign up resellers and consultancy partners has resulted in agreements with Deloitte & Touche
in South Africa, Inogate in Portugal, Team Progress in New Zealand and Australia, ASI in South Korea, and
Tata Consultancy Services of India. Second quarter revenues included our first sale in Australia, a license
transaction completed by Team Progress. Other potential consultancy partners are actively supporting our initial
work with global sales opportunities. We will provide further details of these relationships in due course.
As demand continues to escalate, Sopheon has also begun developing partnerships to help it scale in its provision
of implementation support to new clients. Based on these efforts, we now have an expanding infrastructure of
trained implementation partners capable of delivering on-demand service support to Sopheon customers around
the globe. For instance, Tata Consultancy Services Limited, one of the world’s leading information technology
consulting and services companies, is expanding its Sopheon team to eight professionals over the third quarter.
Partners are currently providing service support at a number of our newest accounts.
We previously announced the signature of a letter of intent to augment our relationship with
Team Progress in Australasia through a financial investment in their Sopheon reseller business. This initial
investment will underpin a long-term objective of establishing a Sopheon owned support centre in each major
world time zone. These discussions continue and are expected to conclude in the near term.
