CHICAGO--(CCNMatthews - Nov 8, 2005) -

SSA Global™ (NASDAQ:SSAG), a leading provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, today announced the general availability of new releases of their SSA Supply Chain Management solutions that offer customers enhanced global supply chain execution capabilities.

In addition, SSA Transportation Management 6.2 provides increased functionality for supporting heavy international air cargo transactions.

"Our customers are increasingly feeling the pressure of doing business in a complex global supply chain where rising transportation costs have a major impact on business performance and profits," said Cory A. Eaves, chief technology officer, SSA Global. "A key focus in our solution development is to help customers improve their global transportation, distribution and trade compliance processes so they can effectively address the demands of supply chain complexity and respond in real-time to foreseen and unforeseen events."

The SSA Global supply chain execution solutions can play a key role in helping companies understand their customers' demands and match supply with available product to meet that demand. SSA Global has aligned its solution strategy with the principles of Demand-Driven Supply Networks (DDSN) to help customers get a true picture of supply, demand and product needed to compete.

All of these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by our management that, although we believe to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, economic, competitive, governmental and technological factors outside of our control that may cause our business, strategy or actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. We operate in a changing environment in which new risks can emerge from time to time. It is not possible for management to predict all of these risks, nor can it assess the extent to which any factor, or a combination of factors, may cause our business, strategy or actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements. Factors you should consider that could cause these differences include, among other things:

-- General economic and business conditions, including exchange rate fluctuations in the United States and abroad;

-- Our ability to identify acquisition opportunities and effectively and cost-efficiently integrate acquisitions;

-- Our ability to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting;
