MINNEAPOLIS -- January 16, 2013

Syncada’s director of business strategy, Dean Hahn-Carlson, stands where
innovative thought and industry expertise converge. Recognized as one of
Minnesota’s Top 500 Inventors in this month’s issue of Twin Cities Business,
Dean has influenced the evolution of Syncada's online network and its creative
capabilities for more than a decade.

Dean began his financial services experience by implementing payment
initiatives at U.S. Bank, as well as designing and testing the major merchant
acquiring system now operated by Elavon. In 1996, Dean invented the concepts
and filed the first patents for an online transportation platform. Today, this
technology allows Syncada participants to collaborate for invoice processing,
financing, and payment. Since then, he has been an integral part of the
organization, contributing to business planning and strategy, business
analysis, product development, and network management.

Syncada connects banks, buyers, and suppliers to facilitate global trade. By
automating invoice processing and payment, participants increase efficiency
and reduce errors. Syncada’s robust business intelligence services enable
participants to analyze trends to increase operational efficiency. Buying
organizations using Syncada can assist suppliers with optimizing working
capital through integrated financing capabilities.

“At Syncada, people—whether network partners, participants, or
employees—consistently drive us to reach the highest levels of achievement,”
states Kurt Schneiber, Chief Executive Officer at Syncada. “Innovative people
like Dean dare each of us to go beyond what we do today, requiring our best
efforts as we grow the network for the future.”
