Pegasystems Announces PegaRULES Process Commander; PegaRULES Process Commander Provides User-Controlled Business Process Automation for the Enterprise

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 5, 2001 — Automating and managing the flow of work across the enterprise and the Web promises exceptional opportunities for competitive advantage. Costly, traditional approaches to workflow and process automation have failed to support rapid evolution, enterprise reach and intelligent automation. Pegasystems (NASDAQ: PEGA) today announced the PegaRULES Process Commander, an advanced, rules-based work manager for business process automation. The open, scalable and flexible PegaRULES Process Commander drives tangible business value by creating smarter systems that automate work in dynamic environments.

Built on the patented PegaRULES engine, Process Commander is a tool that supports rapid deployment of rules-driven workflow systems with unequaled business user access and control. Process Commander automates manual processes, integrates as a component of existing systems and reaches out over the Web to partners and customers. The product includes a collection of best practice rule objects that simplify the intelligent automation of work assignments, service level escalation and fulfillment across multiple systems and organizations. Process Commander drives change quickly and effectively across an enterprise by enabling business users to create and modify process rules with browser-based graphical tools, while providing the controls to introduce change safely into production.

"Business processes are business differentiators," said Alan Trefler, founder and CEO, Pegasystems. "Organizations are looking to use their existing systems and still get the process differentiation that they need to be competitive and cost-effective. PegaRULES Process Commander enables companies to capture their unique way of doing business and apply it across their enterprise systems and the Web, automating complex work to suit their evolving needs."

PegaRULES Process Commander will be available in Q2, 2001. Pricing starts at $100,000. Contact Pegasystems for further information.
