HONG KONG & PLEASANTON, Calif. -- November 13, 2012

Core Solutions, a leading provider of extended product lifecycle management,
global sourcing and supplier collaboration systems for the retail industry,
today announced it has signed an agreement with Safeway to implement CORE’s
CBX Enterprise software to support the retailer’s global sourcing and direct
import operations.

As a leading U.S. grocery retailer, Safeway’s supply chain, from concept to
delivery, has been engineered to ensure their high standards.

The CBX Extended PLM system will help Safeway streamline sourcing, order,
logistics and finance to enable greater operational efficiencies. As part of
the end-to-end solution provided to Safeway, CBX will automate the tendering
process and facilitate order planning and execution. CBX will also support
Safeway in managing supplier onboarding, quality assurance and shipment
inspections, helping Safeway comply with regulations such as ISF 10+2.

To minimize unnecessary manual data input and increase productivity, CBX will
be integrated with Safeway’s systems as well as 3PLs and customs brokers.

Safeway will utilize the Software-as-a-Service version of CORE’s CBX, which is
delivered through CORE’s robust cloud platform, eliminating the need to invest
in additional infrastructure.

“Safeway is a highly respected and innovative supermarket chain,” said Michael
Hung, CEO of Core Solutions. “We are very pleased to win them as a client and
partner and look forward to working with Safeway, rolling out CBX and making a
positive contribution to Safeway’s supply chain.”
