RESTON, Va. - Nov. 17, 2009 - Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, and TomTom WORK, the B2B division of TomTom, are joining forces, effective immediately. The two companies will combine their expertise to develop a comprehensive solution for intelligent and integrated fleet management.

Software AG's webMethods product suite is the world market leader for business process optimization, and TomTom WORK provides companies with straightforward and innovative solutions for managing vehicle fleets of any size. As part of the strategic partnership, the two companies will work together to develop and jointly implement a fully integrated approach to fleet management that covers all business processes involved in order processing, and also incorporates unexpected incidents like accidents or breakdowns. The concepts and solutions developed by the partners will be geared toward enterprises where outside sales and service play a key role.

Leipzig-based software and systems vendor itCampus, a subsidiary of Software AG since April 1, 2009, played an integral role in establishing this partnership. For the last two years, itCampus has worked closely with TomTom WORK on the interface design of TomTom WEBFLEET, the online solution for fleet and order management.

Ivo Totev, Executive Board member and head of Global Consulting Services, Software AG:

"Companies want to optimize their processes using state-of-the-art, flexible technology. The collaboration of two market leaders, TomTom and Software AG, provides customers with integrated solutions that not only reduce their costs but also increase the quality of their service."

Thomas Schmidt, Managing Director, TomTom WORK:

"We are thrilled to be cooperating with Software AG. Both companies have a proven track record of providing technology that optimizes businesses processes. TomTom WORK's products help companies manage their fleets efficiently. Software AG has the expertise to integrate these technologies seamlessly into business processes."

Dr. Andreas Lassmann, Managing Director, itCampus:

"I am pleased that we could facilitate this strategic partnership. With our specialized knowledge in the areas of software development and software ergonomics, itCampus will play a pivotal role in helping both market leaders become leaders in fleet management technology as well."
