Mobius Finds a Dancing Partner

Content management software company Mobius Management Systems Inc., which
just last week announced a return to profitability, is teaming with
Hewlett-Packard Co. to offer an integrated method of effectively managing,
delivering and retrieving corporate reports and documents.

Rye, N.Y.-based Mobius said that the solution,
incorporating H-P’s Dazel output technology, will allow customers of both
companies to reduce delays often associated with routing and tracking
document delivery throughout an enterprise.

Mobius’s ViewDirect software captures, indexes and stores enterprise content
from multiple applications and sources, creating a repository of documents,
reports and images for delivery over the Internet and corporate intranets.
HP’s Dazel technology helps users unify their information delivery
infrastructure and manage output.

Both Mobius and HP are SAP partners, offering users of SAP
R/3 a full-featured archiving, viewing and delivery solution.

Mobius stock was up 7 cents in the early
going, to $2.88. Last week the company reported net income for its fourth
fiscal quarter of $792,000, or 4 cents per diluted share, as compared to a
net loss of $2.4 million or $0.13 per diluted share in the same period last

Revenues for the fourth quarter ended June 30 were $19.9 million, compared to
$10.8 million a year earlier.

Gartner Group has estimated that the number of digital documents will double
every year through 2004, making services that support automated management
and delivery more and more important.

“Mobius and HP provide a simple, powerful solution — the ability to capture
and store
information from any source and deliver it to any destination,” said Jim
Cooper, sales general manager of HP’s Delivery Solutions.

Founded in 1981, Mobius has grown with the Net and now says that more than
half of the Fortune 100 companies use one of its apps.
