Adonix Named as "Hot Company" by Start Magazine

Company Included in Annual Listing of Enterprise Vendors to Keep an Eye On in 2005

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 19, 2005 -- Adonix (, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions to mid-sized manufacturing and distribution companies, announced today that Start magazine, a leading technology-focused manufacturing publication, named Adonix as one of the enterprise software industry's "Hottest Companies to Keep an Eye On in 2005."

"The companies selected for Start's Hottest Companies of the Year showed remarkable innovation in a challenging environment," said Peggy Smedley, Start's editorial director. "I commend them for helping manufacturers compete in the global marketplace and make the most out of all of their available resources. We are excited to award these companies with one of the industry's highest honors and believe they represent the best of the best in manufacturing technology."

Adonix was recognized for its growth and expansion from beyond its traditionally strong discrete manufacturing and distribution markets into under-served process manufacturing industries -- particularly food, life sciences and chemicals. Adonix X3 Process combines the features of the company's flagship product, Adonix X3 -- a web-native ERP suite that fully integrates manufacturing, distribution, warehouse management, customer relationship management and accounting functionality -- with application features that address the unique and specialized needs of the process manufacturer, including formula management, lot traceability, shelf life management, quality control and regulatory compliance.

Nominees for the award were evaluated on the uniqueness of their products, long-term company growth rate, special accomplishments attained in the past year and target market competitiveness.

"Demand for systems in process industries has been particularly strong and we signed a number of mid-market leaders in these sectors in the past year," said Alex Attal, CEO for Adonix North America. "We are pleased that Start magazine is alerting manufacturing executives to keep an eye on Adonix in the coming year as we continue to offer quality software solutions to industry challenges."
