High-quality management standards which comply with SAP guidelines allow
itelligence to implement new SAP solutions more effectively and increase
customer satisfaction

itelligence announced today that it has achieved accreditation for active
quality management awarded by the SAP ^® Active Quality Management team. It
serves as evidence that itelligence demonstrates clear quality standards for
the sale and implementation of the SAP solutions. By cooperating with SAP
(NYSE: SAP) in quality management, itelligence can better assist its customers
both before and after implementation projects, and make sure that the projects
are delivered to specification, on the planned budget and on time. itelligence
is an SAP gold channel partner in the SAP PartnerEdge® program.

SAP launched the global quality accreditation program for value-added
resellers (VARs) that focus on SAP Business All-in-One solutions as well as
members of the SAP Extended Business program. Theaccreditation is awarded
globally to SAP channel partners that prove active quality management of their
sales processes and delivery methodologies.

itelligence is closely aligned to the key principles of quality that SAP
believes to be fundamental to the success of every implementation, designed to
deliver high-quality software and support while providing the right processes,
tools and services to drive successful projects and delivery.

Businesses today are continually challenged to manage risk in increasingly
complex projects. As a certified member of the global quality accreditation
program, intelligence helps SAP customers avoid escalations, maintain profits
and improve successful delivery. In addition, the program provides itelligence
with access to enhanced materials and quality management procedures through
SAP sale channels. With a distinct focus on quality deliverables, the
accreditation also helps partners improve the successof bids.
Itdifferentiates them from other competitors through high-quality standards
and risk mitigation.

The annual partner quality plan and quarterly quality reviews form the basis
for the global quality accreditation program by providing a way to monitor
joint performance and measure success. Partners are required to submit an
annual quality plan to showcase how they will improve quality in their own
organization during the year. In addition, the quarterly quality review
enables joint risk monitoring via open bilateral communication as well as
identifying and preventing issues.

"At SAP, we make every effort to help customers manage their implementations
of integrated software solutions, and encourage our partners to work to the
principles of quality adhered to throughout SAP," said Iwona Stamper, Channel
Development Manager, SAP Polska. "We are pleased that itelligence has
tightened its cooperation with SAP through this accreditation for active
quality management. Through this accreditation, we expect that itelligence
specialists will be better equipped to assist customers with making informed
decisions about their SAP solutions and implementation options, as well as
realize the value of their investments early on and to their full potential."
