ICEsoft’s ICEbrowser Integrated into Triversity Transactionware Enterprise
Point-of-Sale systems leader adopts the top Java web browser platform.

CALGARY, Alberta. — June 28, 2004 — ICEsoft Technologies Inc., the leading provider of Java browser and Java Web access software, today announced that Triversity Inc, the leader in customer-centric solutions for the retail industry, has adopted ICEbrowser® as its primary HTML rendering engine for Transactionware Enterprise™.

Transactionware Enterprise is the most cost-effective, easily deployed J2EE solution available today for point of sales (POS) and point-of-interaction applications in the retail enterprise. Transactionware Enterprise is the first and only Java POS solution designed from the ground up to harness the power of J2EE. Its highly scalable, open architecture allows retailers to deploy solutions ranging from true thin-client to thick-client systems, up to massively scalable enterprise server environments that handle billions of transactions per year.

Both ICEbrowser and Triversity Enterprise Framework fully integrate with IBM’s J2EE infrastructure - WebSphere Application Server 5, WebSphere MQ and DB2 Universal Database. As a result, within Transactionware Enterprise, ICEbrowser is used to render all the IBM software applications that span the retail enterprise - from head office to store servers to the full range of customer touch points, including POS systems, kiosks, and the Internet.

Triversity reviewed all the leading rendering solutions before deciding to standardize on ICEbrowser. The selection criteria included high availability and performance suitable for a mission-critical environment, a short learning curve for developers, rapid application deployment and integration and open standards to maximize business flexibility.

“After studying all our options, it was clear that ICEsoft offered the technical capabilities and the level of enterprise support required to deliver on large retail applications,” said David Thomas, president and CEO of Triversity Inc. “The implementation of ICEsoft’s technology allows us to offer a more tightly integrated WebSphere solution.”

“Triversity delivers cutting-edge retail solutions offering flexible customization of customer POS applications across platforms; they came to ICEsoft looking for that same innovation in a rendering platform,” said Brian McKinney, president and CEO, ICEsoft Inc. “ICEbrowser gives them the heterogeneous client solution to maximize their customers retail relationship. ICEsoft is pleased to add Triversity to its ever-broadening customer base that benefit from an integrated Java client/application platform.”
