MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - Genius Solutions™-a leading provider of enterprise resource planning (MRP/ERP) software ( solutions for manufacturers-today announced the addition of four Quebec-based companies, from a cross-section of industries, to the company's growing manufacturing customer base. Entreprises Alliees, Protomach Machinerie, Rechapage RTS and Versatrac Industries have all selected the company's Genius Manufacturing™ solution to streamline and automate their manufacturing processes in order to improve the efficiency and profitability of their plant facilities.

"The addition of these customers is a welcome validation of the value our solution brings to custom, MTO (Make to Order) and ETO (Engineered to Order) manufacturers, regardless of their industry," said Jean Magny, President at Genius Solutions. "We are in business to serve these small-to-mid-market companies with a solution that has been specifically designed to help them optimize their operations, reduce costs, react faster and set new standards of performance."

Entreprises Alliees manufactures parts for assembling or re-fitting lines for trucks, trains, tractors and buses. It also transforms custom pieces for an array of enterprises including Hydro-Quebec, STCUM, Brown Boveri, etc. Genius Manufacturing will be integrated with Entreprises Alliees' new Acomba management system, and will enable the manufacturer to automate and streamline its scheduling and production management processes. Genius Manufacturing will also enable the company to develop the basic functionality it needs to improve its order entry, planning, and real-time job costing processes.

"We looked at Genius Solutions because the company has a solid reputation on the market and came highly recommended by our colleagues in the industry," said Gilles Milot, President of Entreprises Alliees. "When it came down to choosing a solution, Genius was the only company we evaluated that was able to deliver the exact functionality we required in a manufacturing system specifically designed for our size company. Genius Manufacturing will provide us with better control and real-time visibility into our manufacturing operations, from inventory status to manufacturing costs, production planning, scheduling and output, estimations, billing and delivery, etc."

Protomach Machinerie manufactures and distributes machinery for door and window production.

Rechapage RTS is a tire re-treading company specializing in the RTS process, the most advanced recapping technology available in North America. Prior to selecting Genius Manufacturing, the company relied on a paper-based, homegrown manufacturing system. Genius Manufacturing will replace Rechapage RTS' manual, error-prone and redundant business processes to provide the company with a fully automated manufacturing system. The implementation will include integration with the company's Sage Accpac™ accounting system, and will provide Rechapage RTS with accurate estimations and Materials Requirements Planning capabilities.
