Ulysses Systems Announces Partnership with Orca Co., LTD in Japan

LONDON 27 JANUARY 2009. Ulysses Systems is pleased to announce that as of early January 2009, Ulysses Systems and Orca Company of Japan will be further enhancing their partnership by combining their current resources and relocating to the Orca office.

The continued influx of orders from existing customers with expanding requirements such as Iino Marine Services- Japan, New Asia Shipping Hong Kong, ITML and others, proves that Task Assistant delivers tangible valuable results in line with customers expectations.

Speaking about the new partnership between Ulysses and Orca Co, Mr. Martin Nygate, VP of Sales and Marketing said:

"Task Assistant provides an excellent information management system, and is the only way to handle the burden in an economically viable and efficient manner. The key objective of the partnership with Orca Co., Ltd will be to continue to build on Ulysses current success in the region and improve the level of service that is provided to our esteemed Japanese and South East Asian customers through our Tokyo based staff."

Ulysses Systems' innovative Task Assistant offers a suite of applications including Safety and Quality, Reporting, Document Management, Planned Maintenance, Purchasing, and the newly released Crewing. Task Assistant differentiates itself in the market because the structure in which it presents information increments is rich and follows common sense. In contrast to software packages that force customers to modify operations around the capabilities of the software, Task Assistant is designed to understand existing roles and tasks within the organization and use that understanding to provide end-users with exactly the information they want at exactly the time they need it.

"Our philosophy is to provide customer centric technology solutions to our target market. Ulysses' Task Assistant is within this philosophy and we believe that our partnership with Ulysses Systems will increase the quality of the service we provide to the local market, offering solutions that simplify ship operations" adds Mr. S.Y. Chang , Managing Director of Orca Co., Ltd Japan

With the release of the highly anticipated Task Assistant driven Crewing Module with elements designed in accordance with market-driven focus groups, Ulysses has successfully consolidated its Global Engineering development team to provide enhanced usability and productivity features to its expanding pool of customers.
