Management Solutions

CHICAGO--(CCNMatthews - Mar 7, 2005) -

SSA Global™, a leading provider of extended enterprise solutions and
services, today announced that Leg Avenue, one of America's premier
women's apparel companies has selected SSA Global to streamline its
replenishment and distribution processes.

With 8,000 wholesale customers and outlets in the United States and
fueled by rapid growth over the past five years, Leg Avenue's customer
base and product line has significantly expanded requiring the company
to increase its number of distribution centers and the size of its
supplier base. This larger demand and supply network created additional
complexity due to increased product lead times and lead time
variability, as well as increased demand variability at the wholesale
and outlet levels. SSA Global's Distribution Replenishment and Warehouse
Management solutions will help Leg Avenue increase revenues by reducing
stock outs, lowering inventory carrying costs and improving customer

"As we continue to grow, SSA Global's solutions will help us service
more customers in more locations with less inventory. We believe we can
significantly reduce stock out's, on-hand inventory, total lead times,
and improve on-time delivery," said Mike Tsai, general manager, Leg
Avenue. "As a top market player, SSA Global has the ability to
seamlessly integrate with our existing Microsoft Great Plains™ ERP
implementation. We felt that SSA Global can help us leverage our
existing investment in IT and provide us new supply chain capabilities,
therefore giving us a significant competitive advantage."

SSA Global's Distribution Replenishment and Warehouse Management
solutions are part of SSA Global's Supply Chain Management (SCM) suite,
which is a best-in-class solution used by leading manufacturers,
retailers, logistics and distribution companies to enable a
demand-driven supply chain. SSA SCM enables companies to forecast
demand, take an order, give an accurate promise date, source and
manufacture the right goods, position inventory properly, as well as

finished goods inventory.

"Leg Avenue required a robust replenishment and distribution solution
that will help them better plan and allocate inventory to the right
customer, location and time. Their selection of SSA Global is a
testament to the value of our supply chain solutions," said Jim Handy,
president of SSA Global strategic solutions.
