7 November 2008

Xenos Group Inc. (TSX: XNS) the market-leading provider of high-performance software solutions that streamline enterprise information supply chains, today announced that NIC Global, a leading provider of global manufacturing solutions, is implementing Xenos Enterprise Server (Xenos ES) to cost effectively and quickly integrate the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) data received from its trading partners with back-end manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications. Xenos ES will also provide NIC Global with increased agility and control over its enterprise information and enable revenue growth by bringing on new lines of business quickly and effortlessly.

As NIC Global’s business grows and the demands of its trading partners change, Xenos ES will allow for the rapid implementation of new information supply chains with its drag-and-drop interface that defines specific business process flows. In addition, Xenos ES delivers clustering to ensure high availability of the NIC Global environment for its trading partners, and offers failover to ensure all EDI messages are processed without costly human intervention for troubleshooting.

“Xenos has been a trusted solution provider of NIC Global since 2004, and our move to Xenos Enterprise Server is the next logical step given the dynamic and changing needs of our business and valued trading partners,” said Tom Bailey, director of information technology at NIC Global. “Xenos Enterprise Server takes us to the next level and will help drive superior service to our trading partners by enabling us to bring them on board quicker and process their EDI messages with the reliability that is critical to our business.”

Based in Woodinville, Washington, NIC Global specialises in turn-key fabrication of electro-mechanical assemblies and sub-assemblies and currently uses Xenos GoXML Communication Server for high volume structured data translation and intelligent routing for business applications.

“Xenos Enterprise Server was developed with the needs of customers like NIC Global in mind and delivers on our 25-year quest for an intelligent framework for electronic information infrastructure and management in the complex modern enterprise,” said Stuart Butts, Chairman and CEO, Xenos Group. “Xenos Enterprise Server acts as a catalyst to link applications, operations, staff, customers, and trading partners in ways that produce new actionable information from existing data. By reducing complexity, Xenos Enterprise Server provides NIC Global with a superior Return on Information and the ability to rapidly expand their global presence.”

NIC Global is scheduled to go live with Xenos Enterprise Server on 15th November, 2008.
