Prophecy Boosts British Coverage
Released 30 April 2002
Australian-based software multinational Prophecy International
(ASX:PRO) has dramatically extended its presence in the large UK
market after appointing a successful company in the booming north
The company Triasolve - a newly formed division of Corporate Microsystems
Ltd - will sell Prophecy's applications and development tools to
clients in the corporate, enterprise and government markets throughout
the UK. During the past year, Corporate Microsystems Ltd has recorded
phenomenal growth in the north of England, a region that is booming
due to incentives for new companies to establish a presence there.
For Prophecy Europe, the appointment of Triasolve represents the
first step in an aggressive push to appoint new partners to extend
its distribution network throughout Europe and the UK.
Prophecy Europe's Head of Regional Alliances, Alan Wakeman, said
Triasolve and its parent company Corporate Microsystems had a substantial
and credible presence in the emerging area north of England "Already
we have strong prospects in areas that include manufacturing, retail,
financial services and even, museums," he said.
"As the north of England is very much emerging, that's an obvious
target. We've made a very good start in terms of coverage. Triasolve
is totally dedicated to taking the Prophecy suite of products to
the market. This is the core of its business."
Triasolve, which will focus on opportunities nationally, will concentrate
on prospects in its region, including Yorkshire, Tyneside, County
Durham, County Newcastle and Scotland. The company will use Prophecy's
existing application packages, the ProphecyOpen Financials and Chrystal
Human Resource software, to spearhead its thrust into the market,
with Prophecy eFoundation tools and Prophecy Velatte offering the
ability to tailor these applications to suit a business's specific
Triasolve Ltd. Managing Director Shabir Aslam said the company was
focused on the enterprise and corporate arenas throughout the UK.
"Our customer base and Prophecy's product base is a perfect
fit," he said.
"Our customers are running a variety of systems yet require
seamless integration which is what Prophecy offers with its applications
A strong attraction for Triasolve was the breakthrough Prophecy
Velatte product, the company's world-leading Java based rapid application
assembly tool, which allows companies to design and deploy Internet-enabled
applications in weeks instead of months.
Mr. Aslam said Triasolve was committed to demonstrating the full
potential of the ProphecyOpen and Chrystal applications, as well
as the Velatte rapid application assembly solution, at Corporate
Microsystems' US$1 million Centre of Excellence in Newcastle. "Prophecy
will become very significant to us, especially with Velatte,"
"Velatte offers a lot of benefits for customers in terms of
being able to rapidly develop objects and tasks. It will appeal
to people in health, government and the education arena.
