Cortex & Full Circle Systems Kick-Off Project With Energen Resource Corporation

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2011) - Cortex Business Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBX) ("Cortex" or the "Company") together with its US partner Full Circle Systems ("Full Circle") are pleased to announce the signing of Energen Resource Corporation ("Energen") onto the Cortex Trading Partner Network ("Network"). Energen is a diversified energy company headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama. Energen (NSE: EGN) is a growing top 25 independent oil and gas exploration and production company complemented by a single-state natural gas utility. Energen has signed a 5 year agreement to automate its supply chain through Cortex. With over 50 percent of its suppliers already on the Cortex network, connecting Energen will significantly increase the value to our US customers using the Cortex network.

"This project with Energen is the second one with Full Circle and is one of many future projects we are working together to start this year," said Ryan Lailey, Vice President of Business Development and Corporate Strategy at Cortex. "The momentum of our partnership with Full Circle's customers is impressive. We are rapidly growing the Cortex network in the United States. We started with Apache Corporation and Petro Hunt and now with Energen coming aboard; it brings our total producers in the US going-live in the first few months of 2011 to three."

Julian Gelfand, Executive Vice President of Sales at Full Circle, said the project with Energen strengthens the momentum he is seeing with his customers in recognizing the many productivity advantages of electronic invoicing. "The large number of vendors already on the Cortex network coupled with the tight integration between Cortex and Full Circle have allowed our clients to get up and running quickly. We are able to process electronic invoices seamlessly with minimal disruption to the daily running of their business," said Gelfand.

Given the successes to date and the significant interest shown by customers, both parties fully expect 2011 to be an excellent year to take the partnership to the next level. 

Lailey concluded by saying that both Cortex and Full Circle are dedicated and focused on optimizing document, workflow management, and invoice processing for corporations by implementing electronic invoicing solutions. "Our solutions have reduced customers' costs, while streamlining their procure-to-pay process and improving their business controls."
