SoftSmiths Adds EMS-Link to its Product Family

Houston, TX. – April 18, 2002 – SoftSmiths, Inc today announced commercial availability of its EMS-Link interface, a software solution that provides seamless integration between 3rd party Energy Management Systems and SoftSmiths' e-Merchant and e-Wheel Product Suites. SoftSmiths delivers critical e-Business solutions and services that enable energy industry participants to enhance profitability and reliability in the competitive marketplace.

The application program interface allows SoftSmiths e-Merchant and e-Wheel transaction management applications to provide net scheduled interchange data in the required format to EMS/SCADA systems for use in Automatic Generation Control (AGC). This complements the capabilities already provided by e-Merchant and e-Wheel to make use of EMS/SCADA information, such as meter data, to perform control area energy accounting functions such as calculation of inadvertent interchange.

"EMS-Link leverages our integrated real-time scheduling systems to provide a platform that allows organizations involved in generation, transmission, and marketing of energy to rapidly deploy a tightly integrated best-of-breed solution that offers all the functions they need for their energy management and trading operations,' said Larry Stone at SoftSmiths. "Successful operations rely on highly effective management of physical assets. This technology-rich solution enables our customers to improve and streamline processes and helps them achieve a competitive advantage".

SoftSmiths provides critical elements for the next generation of transaction management systems, including its e-Merchant, e-Wheel, and ETPS product suites. e-Merchant offers a flexible, scalable business technology solution, seamlessly integrating Trading, Portfolio Assessment, Resource Management, Scheduling, Risk Measurement, Accounting, and Reporting. e-Wheel is designed for RTOs, Transmission Providers, and Control Area Operators, and offers Scheduling, Transmission Services, ATC Management, Interchange Checkout, EMS Integration, Accounting, and Reporting. ETPS is a NERC 1.7 compliant Electronic Tagging solution allowing the electronic creation, verification, approval, and management of interchange transaction tags in all three roles -- agent, approval, and authority.
