Stockholm, Sweden, and Schaumburg, IL — December 5, 2003 — Teepak, LLC, a manufacturer of cellulose and fibrous casings for the food industry, has signed a contract to partner with Intentia for the design and deployment of a new global collaborative enterprise application.

According to Teepak's Chief Financial Officer, Martha Leonard, the company's goal in licensing and implementing Intentia's Movex is to standardize and improve business processes across the company's regional operations as well as to consolidate corporate information for greater visibility and global information analysis.

Intentia in the Americas announced that Leonard, who is also the executive sponsor of the Teepak project, said, "We decided to implement a global enterprise backbone because it became increasingly clear that our disparate legacy systems were not capable of delivering the efficiency, productivity and visibility we required to continue to serve our customers on a global basis. Intentia's Movex is an excellent fit for a process manufacturing company, and we are confident that it will improve our processes globally and lower our costs."

Among the enterprise-wide business processes Teepak will implement are financial and accounting, customer order management, resource planning, production management, advanced production planning, warehouse and distribution management, and a corporate portal. The company will run its Movex system on an IBM iSeries platform, and the system will ultimately serve over 300 users across multinational sites.

President and CEO at Intentia in the Americas Linus Parker adds, "In undertaking this new partnership, our goal is to deliver on Intentia's promises to all Movex customers, namely, full accountability, mitigation of risk, and a clear and dedicated focus on leveraging our technology for our customers' success."
