Boston, MA (July 25, 2001) OpenAir, provider of the complete

In the second quarter of 2001, more than 35 new mid-market customers
selected OpenAir's professional services automation solution, bringing the
company's customer base to over 500 firms. Growth continued in OpenAir's
traditionally strong industry segments, including technology consulting,
management consulting, advertising and PR, and internal professional services
groups. In the quarter, OpenAir increased revenues by over 500% versus Q2'00,
driven primarily by monthly software subscription fees.
CEO Morris Panner explained OpenAir's success, "As the economy has forced
professional services organizations to focus more on operational
effectiveness, those that evaluate OpenAir find it to be the fastest, most
cost-effective way to increase returns on their most important assets, namely
people and company knowledge."
Panner's assessment was reflected by several of OpenAir's new customers.
John Kneeley, CEO of Martin Progressive, an IT strategy consulting firm that
deployed OpenAir to 300 consultants across four offices, concluded, "It was an
easy decision for us. OpenAir offered a very rapid implementation schedule and
a pricing structure that minimized upfront costs, so the investment paid back
almost immediately. We are already seeing increases in operational efficiency
and have clearer, more immediate insights into key profitability drivers."
