BEDFORD, Mass. -- May 28, 2013

Logistics software specialist, Four Soft has selected the Progress® OpenEdge®
11 application development platform from Progress Software Corporation
(NASDAQ: PRGS) as part of its plan to achieve strategic international growth.

By enabling multi-language support for its 4S eTrans SME freight management
system, Four Soft is taking an important step towards company growth by
allowing it to offer its solutions on an international scale. Currently, Four
Soft helps more than 400 customers and more than 60,000 end-users on a daily
basis. As a result of using the OpenEdge 11 product, Four Soft will be able to
expand this support to a truly global audience.

In addition to the multi-language support, use of the OpenEdge 11 platform has
also provided Four Soft’s customers with new features, such as the ability to
monitor Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), real-time messaging and automatic
renewal processes. It has also provided a drag-and-drop feature that allows
developers to work collaboratively by easily moving documents. As a result of
the multi-tenancy functionality of the Progress OpenEdge 11 product, Four Soft
was also able to cost effectively move the application to a safe cloud
environment enabling customers to access data at any time and place.

The Progress OpenEdge platform helps Progress’ Independent Software Vendor
(ISV) Partners, such as Four Soft, build dynamic, business process-enabled
applications for secure deployment across any platform, any mobile device and
any cloud. The OpenEdge platform has evolved over the last 30 years
incorporating new technologies such as multi-tenancy, data encryption and
auditing, security and compliance and user-interface flexibility.

Four Soft recently received the EMEA Partner Award during the Global Progress
Partner Conference in Las Vegas for its demonstrated success and ability to
stay ahead of industry demands using the latest Progress technology.
