Ericom Software Signs Distribution Deal with EMJ America


Jerusalem, Israel, April 22, 1999 -- Ericom® Software, a leading developer of enterprise-wide corporate connectivity software solutions, today announced its partnership with EMJ America Inc. a distributor of internetworking and Internet-related computer hardware and software products in North America. The partnership provides EMJ with full distribution rights over Ericom's popular PowerTerm® line of terminal emulators, including the PowerTerm Pro for Windows 2000, PowerTerm CE for Windows CE, and PowerTerm Interconnect.

The deal comes as part of Ericom's expanded focus on the U.S. market, following the opening of an office in Hackensack, New Jersey last year. Ericom products provide desktop and remote access to mission-critical legacy applications residing on centralized host systems, with 2 million installations in more than 45 countries worldwide. Under the agreement, EMJ becomes the latest company to join Ericom's expanding U.S.-based network of VARS, resellers and distributors.

"As a longstanding distributor of quality communications and connectivity software, EMJ America represents an important partner for Ericom in our ongoing effort to grow our U.S. customer base, including corporations and state governments which stand to benefit the most from facilitated access to stored data," said Robert McGowan, Regional Sales Manager. "The PowerTerm series' dynamic design is winning over customers with its user-friendly and feature-rich host connectivity solutions that offer excellent cost performance in price as well as in the economics of network resources and precious IT personnel resources."

EMJ Vice President Mark Estill commented, "PowerTerm corresponds to EMJ's standards for products that combine functionality and ease-of-use to provide a direct benefit to the end-user. We know this not only from the positive feedback we have received already, but also from our own experience using PowerTerm to meet EMJ's terminal emulation needs, whether for booking orders, shipping or accounting purposes." EMJ's communications and embedded systems lines include product specialties in the areas of multi-platform internetworking, Internet security, data communications and microcomputer peripherals.
