Order Logistics' Markdowns and Allowances Application Profiled in Journal of Trading Partner Practices

CHAMPAIGN, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2006 -- Order Logistics, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ODLG) (www.orderlogistics.com) developed a collaborative application to manage markdowns and allowances for Kellwood Corporation and has been featured in an article profiling Kellwood's successful implementation of the system. The article, "Kellwood Facilitates Allowance Activity via Automation," is featured in the July 2006 Journal of Trading Partner Practices (JTPP). JTPP is a publication focused on best practices in Supply Chain Compliance, Trade Promotion and Deduction Management and is sponsored by the Trade Promotion Management Association, Vendor Compliance Federation and the Retail Compliance Council.

Kellwood struggled with manual paper driven processes for managing markdowns and allowances made more complicated by requirements from Sarbanes-Oxley and multiple divisions responsible for numerous brands. The article chronicles one of the leaders in the apparel industry, Kellwood, in the successfully implementation of a new application developed to automate and manage this once cumbersome process.

Utilized throughout the Claims group, the sales force and divisional financial executive, the system provides real-time visibility into the markdowns and allowances happening across all of Kellwood's customers.

"We are proud to provide a solution that has helped a leading company such as Kellwood Company stay successful in such a changing world," stated Brad Cunningham, CTO, eBridge Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Order Logistics.
