FFIFA to Target Carbon Emissions in Copenhagen, Denmark "eMission Calculator to be Launched"

Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, Wednesday, March 31, 2010 -- (Business Wire India) -- Four Soft Limited, India (NSE: "FOURSOFT", BSE 532521) a global leader in offering software solutions for Logistics and Transportation industry in conjunction with Freight Forwarding Industry & Four Soft Alliance' (FFIFA) today announced that it has chosen "Carbon emissions" as the topic of discussion in its 2nd global meet. Members of FFIFA will discuss and debate on the Carbon eMissions in this 2nd meet of FFIFA which will be held on the 31st of March in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Awareness of and concern for climate changes have influenced and will continue to influence all categories and levels of society at a global scale, including the transport and logistics industry. Four Soft in conjunction with FFIFA members has developed an emission calculator, which provides detailed data of emissions, which allows transport- and logistics companies to document and report the emission of co2 and other green house gases directly to the transport customers, as well as in the preparation of environmental reports.

The calculator, labelled eMission, is a stand-alone application, which can be used independently or through full automation and integration with the Transport Management applications used by individual companies in their daily operations. eMission is developed with the purpose of creating visibility of the emission of co2 and other green house gases. And because accuracy is critical, calculations are made for individual shipments and may be documented on the standard transport invoice. Consequently eMission will fundamentally change the industry approach to working with emission data, and will create a new benchmark and industry standard for the level of detail of the information which can be provided to transport customers and additional stake holders. Four Soft is experiencing significant interest in eMission at a global scale and the first roll-out with one of the major players in the industry is under negotiation.

In this Second meet of FFIFA, Four soft also announces the launch of its complete software suite for business analysis - "4S Infotips". 4S Infotips is quick-to-deploy, easy-to-learn, and easy-to-use business analysis application based on a single architecture to cover all types of analysis and reporting needs for all organizations. 4S Infotips is a platform which puts the right information in the right hands at the right time, and gives managers and executives the ability to test various scenarios for business spending and investments while monitoring important operational drivers of company performance. 4S Infotips helps organizations to extract vital information through a quick and visually interactive interface that enables informed decision making.

Kieran Ring, CEO, Global Institute of Logistics, commented, "Today the whole world is concerned about the environment; the freight forwarding industry too needed to actively consider measures to make a positive impact. I'm delighted that we have appropriately chosen to focus on this critical issue in our Copenhagen meet."

Håkan Nilsson, CIO, Geodis Wilsson, commented," The special focus for this meeting is to jointly address the two subjects - Ocean carrier messaging and Emission Calculator development. We expect joint benefits through the means of collaboration.
