NEXT-GENERATION FUND MARKETING Axiom Group and Integrated Publishing Solutions Partner to Bring iPlus to the U.S.

Shelton, CT -- July 2004 -- Fund Marketers interested in drastically cutting costs and improving control over their information publishing and data processes can now take advantage of a powerful next-generation solution developed specifically for them: iPlus from Axiom Group of Shelton, Connecticut.

Axiom Group is an IT services firm that specializes in design, engineering, implementation management and ongoing managed services of critical technology and market data systems. Axiom Group has recently gone into global partnership with Integrated Publishing Solutions (IPS) of the U.K. to sell their automated publishing solution, iPlus, into the U.S.

With iPlus, data can be repurposed in one cycle, creating multiple outputs from the same data at the click of a button. Continuously changing information and knowledge can be delivered more rapidly, more accurately and more efficiently than ever before. Data can come from multiple sources including: databases, price feeds, XML, HTML, Word, PDF, text and image files. At the core of iPlus is Adobe Framemaker®—which provides industry-leading professional layout,
typographic and formatting functionality—and a unique XML-to-PowerPoint engine to automatically generate PowerPoint® slides. Multiple outputs can be generated simultaneously, including: low -res PDF for screen or desktop printing, XML, HTML, Post Script®, PowerPoint®, or high-res PDF four-color separations for high-quality print. Different document versions, for different markets, in different languages can be generated.

According to Don Bodnar, CEO of Axiom Group, "iPlus is the perfect addition to our core business. We know there is a need in the financial segment for this product and we are sure it has applications for a lot of other industries. We are excited about the potential of iPlus."

"Axiom beat the competition hands down to become our chosen partner," adds Graham Duncan, CEO of IPS. "Their financial services data integration skills and vigorous professional approach left others in the dust!"

Fund Marketers for Financial Services-based operations will benefit substantially from the broad range of advantages iPlus delivers. For information contact: Allan Hoving, Axiom Group: Phone: 203.944.0808
