Loftware Print Server® Clear Winner in Performance Shoot-Out at Berkshire Hathaway Subsidiary Shaw Industries

Scalable Enterprise-Grade Software Is Three Times Faster Than Closest Rival

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - September 18, 2007) - Loftware, Inc., a 20-year leader in flexible and scalable label output management solutions, announced it has successfully completed a data-intensive, competitive benchmark test at Shaw Industries, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway and the world's largest supplier of carpet and carpet fiber, to meet Shaw's global needs in label output management.

Shaw Industries prints more than 20,000 labels per day and the printed labels are drawn from 60+ label templates. Shaw selected their most elaborate and complex label template -- a single label 220KB in size -- for the performance testing. The products evaluated in the test put Loftware's Loftware Print Server® head-to-head against leading competitors. Shaw evaluated the printing output performance benchmark and established Loftware as best in meeting the production performance required to output 10,000 labels in less than 5 hours. The results also demonstrated the Loftware Print Server performed three times faster than the next closest competitive product.

"Our enterprise-grade software has demonstrated the highest throughput of any label output software package available and now we have proven it even with ultra-large label images," said CEO Eric Anderson. "Our focus on providing the most responsive and agile labeling output management software available on the planet continues, day in and day out. We are delighted to have earned Shaw Industries' business!"
