Cortex & Powervision Announce Project With Large Calgary Based Energy Trust

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2010) -


Cortex Business Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBX) ("Cortex" or the "Company"), together with its tier one partner Powervision Software Inc. ("Powervision"), is pleased to announce the signing of a new project with a large Calgary based Energy Trust. Powervision and Cortex will be working together to automate their supply chain by connecting their suppliers to the Cortex Trading Partner Network (the "Network").

Signing this new project comes at a great time for Cortex and its current customers. The continued expansion of our Network increases our recurring revenue stream, financial position and market share in the oil and gas industry in Western Canada. This new buying organization's supplier base and area of operations coincide with other buying organizations on the Network; therefore, increasing the value of the Network and the ability for current clients to automate transactions with more of their trading partners.

"This is the second large buying organization to join the Cortex network since January 1st," stated Ryan Lailey, Vice President of Business Development at Cortex. "As our Network continues to grow, large buying organizations like this one realize immediate value by connecting. Out of this company's 4000+ suppliers, Cortex has 53% invoice coverage; meaning that 53% of the invoices this company receives are from customers already connected to our Network. As a result, achieving the goal of 80% automation is accomplished quickly in a low cost, low risk implementation. Our partnership with Powervision is producing excellent results and our momentum in the market place has never been better."

"We are very excited to be working with Cortex on this project helping our client automate their invoicing process," said JP de Poyen, President of Powervision. "Being connected to Cortex will bring additional value to our client; process visibility, supplier e-invoicing, and on time contract payments."

Powervision and Cortex are dedicated and focused on optimizing purchase to payment and invoicing processes for corporations by implementing electronic procurement, invoicing and document management solutions. In the end, our customers reduce unnecessary costs, streamline their procure-to-pay process and improve business controls.
