DENVER, COLORADO - September 3, 2002 - TIAN Software Company,
Inc., a leading provider of Opportunity Optimization services
for improving enterprise performance by reacting to every interaction
across channels, today announced a partnership with Digital Envoy,
the leading provider of geo-intelligence solutions. The partnership
combines TIAN's Opportunity Optimization services with Digital Envoy's
geo-targeting capabilities, which non-invasively identify the location
of website visitors down to the city level worldwide. The resulting
offering enables enterprises to optimize opportunities with employees,
suppliers, and partners by presenting them with the content or information
that best meets their needs and location.

Both companies will offer fully integrated versions of the combined solutions.
