TAS Technology Expands use of SPS Commerce's Outsourced EDI ServicesMinneapolis, Minn., Feb. 13, 2007 - SPS Commerce, the leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), announced today that TAS Technology, a leading manufacturer of impulse merchandise items for mass merchants, continues to expand its use of SPS Commerce's outsourced EDI service to meet the EDI requirements of its customers, most recently with Wal-Mart Mexico. Since 2004, TAS Technology has used SPS' web-based service to automate its order, shipping and invoicing transactions with its customers, including AutoZone, Kmart, Pep Boys, PETCO, and Wal-Mart Stores. By outsourcing to SPS, TAS Technology eliminates the need to purchase, maintain and staff an EDI system or department internally. SPS Commerce's service includes the hardware, software, staffing, monitoring, operational support and vendor call center required to support TAS' EDI operations externally, and is already used by more than 10,000 subscribers.

"TAS Technology's founder had extensive experience with EDI software applications and knew that they were costly and resource-intensive," said Jason Boshoff, executive vice president at TAS Technology. "More importantly, to do EDI internally would have taken resources away from our primary business. Outsourcing our EDI needs to SPS Commerce was a wise choice. They offer us a reliable EDI solution that is easy to use, but it's more than SPS' technology that keeps us coming back with new customer connections, it's the people at SPS. Their support is amazingly accessible, both online and via phone, and their expertise is working with our retail customers, especially Wal-Mart, is invaluable. SPS Commerce is far better than any EDI department we could build internally, but why would we?"

"We are pleased to have TAS Technology as a part of our community," said Archie Black, chief executive officer of SPS Commerce. " As their business expands, we have been pleased to make the EDI connections with each new customer as easy and hassle-free as possible for their team, and provided our expertise to help them to more effectively transact business with their mass merchandise retailers. All of us at SPS Commerce appreciate their business and trust in our outsourced solutions."
