SoftSmiths to provide NIPSCO with GridAmerica interface.

Houston, TX. – August 27, 2002 – Today, SoftSmiths announced an agreement with Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) to provide an interface with GridAmerica - an independent for-profit transmission company that operates under the MidWest Independent System Operator (MISO). NIPSCO, a Nisource company, is the largest natural gas distribution company, and the second largest electric distribution company, in Indiana. SoftSmiths delivers critical e-Business solutions and services that enable energy industry participants to enhance profitability and reliability in the competitive marketplace.

NIPSCO requires an interface between its e-Wheel Transmission Scheduling application and GridAmerica, to automatically load loss schedule information into e-Wheel for display in interchange checkout screens. As a participant in the MISO, NIPSCO was looking for a seamlessly integrated solution, leveraging the e-Wheel application that already supports its transmission scheduling operations.

e-Wheel is designed for Transmission Providers, Control Area Operators, and RTO's who face an increasingly diverse customer service base and require cutting-edge technology to accommodate transaction rates in the hundreds of thousands. SoftSmiths' e-Wheel Suite provides just that - a flexible, scalable business technology solution, seamlessly integrating Scheduling, Transmission Services, ATC Management, Interchange Checkout, EMS integration, Accounting and Reporting - so that Transmission Providers can stay on top in the changing business environment. The e-Wheel suite also provides NIPSCO with the NERC 1.7 compliant e-Authority and e-Approval applications.
