    Leading forestry company deploys Sage ERP X3 to  drive efficiency and
            increase business insight across multiple territories

   Company named as Sage ERP X3's 4,000 ^th  customer at Global Convention

Norwegian energy company, Green Resources , has today announced that it has
selected Sage ERP X3 , a leading global mid-market Enterprise Resource
Planning solution, to streamline and simplify its business processes as it
continues to accelerate business growth. Green Resources has also been named
as Sage ERP X3's 4,000th customer at its Global Convention in Berlin. The
fully integrated business management solution will be deployed across multiple
territories including sites in Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Norway and the
UK, as part of a 300 user international roll out. Sage ERP X3 will provide the
company with operational control across accounting, procurement and inventory
functions, ultimately helping to manage the organisation's costs more
effectively.

Mads Asprem, CEO of Green Resources explains: "We are really pleased that Sage
has recognised us as its 4,000 ^th customer globally, as our multi-country
organisation reflects the scalability and flexibility of the solution. Our
company has grown exponentially over the past decade but to ensure our
consistent growth and leading position in the market, we needed an ERP
solution that offered us visibility across the entire company and centralised
our management systems. Sage ERP X3 offers the standardisation, compliance,
automation and control that will help run the organisation more effectively
and eventually reduce our costs. We will also be integrating the manufacturing
and HR functions in to the solution later in 2013 to establish ERP X3 as the
central hub for our business."

Staying true to the green agenda, Green Resources will also be the first site
in the UK to implement Sage ERP X3's EDM Solution , an Electronic Document
Management System which has been designed specifically to help efficiently
store and archive documents.

Developed for mid-sized companies and subsidiaries of large groups with
international demands, Sage ERP X3 gives users the freedom to choose a desktop
or web interface, which is cost effective to deploy and easy to integrate,
offering outstanding scalability and performance. Thanks to its intuitive
design, the robustness of its technology and global capabilities, Sage ERP X3
is a natural fit for Green Resources.

"Sage ERP X3 has proven itself as the ideal business management solution for
mid-sized organisations looking to expand their global footprint and will be a
huge coup for Green Resources, as it drives business expansion. Complete with
its global capabilities, unrivalled usability and rapid implementation, the
system will transform business insight for the company, deliver ROI and
support Green Resources as it grows," comments Christophe Vanackere, Head of
Sales and Marketing, for Sage Mid-Market Europe.
