Foster City, CA, July 18, 2008: Synactive, Inc., a leading developer of optimization and productivity solutions for SAP (NYSE:SAP), today announced strategic partnership with Business Applications Associates (BizAps).

BizAps offered an excellent solution for both, with a compelling value proposition especially for small and mid-sized companies. We have used GuiXT for years and our users love it. The combination of BizAps and GuiXT gives us a great solution with a user interface that looks as if it has been tailored specifically for Powell. Our users are delighted. Our CEO and CFO love the money we save with the Procurement Card solution," says Bob Oldrati, IT Director/Controller of Powell Electronics.
