BEDFORD, Mass. -- February 20, 2013

Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a global software company that
simplifies and enables the development and deployment of business
applications, today announced that Infian, a leading provider ofElectronic
Health Records(EHR) for dialysis centers and the renal industry, has chosen
the new Progress® OpenEdge®11.2 application development platform, featuring
the OpenEdge Mobile product to help its clients save time and improve quality
of care. Using the new solution, Infian will now be able to make data
available securely - where it’s needed and when it’s needed - using the latest
in mobile technology.

Infian has been in the healthcare business for over 30 years and has worked
with Progress Software to develop comprehensive EHR solutions. As the industry
has evolved into its current cloud, mobility and “bring your own device”
environments, Infian is using the OpenEdge 11.2 platform to develop solutions
to help medical centers and physician offices easily and securely manage
patient care while remaining compliant.

Launched earlier this month at the Progress Software Global Partner Conference
and now generally available, the OpenEdge 11.2 platform with the Progress
OpenEdge Mobile product provides developers with a quick and easy way to
deploy full enterprise applications on mobile operating systems, including iOS
and Android, while also taking advantage of mobile device features. This
“write once, run anywhere” approach helps organizations bridge the so-called
mobile app gap.

By leveraging the powerful back-end capabilities of the OpenEdge platform, it
can increase developer productivity by 40% or more compared to time-consuming,
feature-limiting competitive solutions. The OpenEdge Mobile product allows
developers to continuously and efficiently update applications as the mobile
market evolves and new devices are introduced. As a result, developers have a
highly productive, simplified development experience from start to finish from
which they can integrate end-user access to full features of critical business
applications on mobile devices.
