Vision Solutions Announces Strategic Alliance With DataMAX Software Group


ORION(TM) Integrator Bundled With DataMAX’s RFGen Will Serve PeopleSoft, SAP and Other ERP Applications

IRVINE, CA -- -- 10/18/2004 -- Vision Solutions, a leading worldwide Managed Availability solutions provider, today announced a strategic alliance with DataMAX Software Group, Inc., a leader in Automated Data Collection solutions.

Under the agreement, DataMAX will distribute Vision’s multi-platform data integration solution, ORION Integrator, with DataMAX’s RFGen family of wireless data-collection, bar-coding, and RFID solutions. ORION Integrator will facilitate real-time data replication and integration between RFGen, PeopleSoft®, SAP, and other ERP and Legacy applications, thereby allowing DataMAX to expand its customer base. DataMAX chose ORION Integrator because it required a powerful, real-time data-replication and integration solution that is flexible enough to fit the disparate environments and complex topologies found in the enterprise-software market.

“No other solution offers the flexibility and the seamless integration that ORION Integrator does,” said Brian Meine, vice president of sales and consulting for DataMAX Software Group. “We looked at competitive solutions, but ORION Integrator’s real-time integration can’t be beat.”

“This is an exciting agreement for Vision Solutions and for ORION,” said David Wegman, executive vice president of marketing and business development at Vision Solutions. “In addition to expanding business opportunity for both companies, this agreement will help solidify ORION Integrator’s position as the leading information-sharing and data-integration solution for sophisticated enterprise architectures.”
