ProgressSoft Corporation Celebrated its Electronic Check Clearing Project Launch in Jordan

Amman, March 9, 2005

The Central Bank of Jordan awarded the Electronic Check Clearing contract to ProgressSoft in June 2004 on behalf of the banking body in the country, making Jordan the second country to adopt such a solution worldwide. Consequently, the Jordanian Banking body will be entitled to superior upgrade to its current check clearing routine. This upgrade ensures the deposit of the checks amount in the account of the beneficiary within the same date of deposit, thus improving the level of services provided by banks, eliminates the expenditures of physical check movement, decreases check fraud losses by 95% and offers better fund management to businesses and people.

PS-ECC uses computing equipment and communication infrastructure to move information more efficiently between depositing and paying banks within the same day.

ProgressSoft was honored with the attendance of its renowned partner; The American Hewlett Packard "HP". This partnership according to ProgressSoft ensures that their technology is revealed in a high performance environment. According to Michael Wakileh, Business Development Manager of ProgressSoft, We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with HP which brings to the world leading technological solutions. Together with HP, we believe that PS-ECC will be poised to winning the European & American market.

ProgressSoft has become a technology partner to Americas Hewlett Packard, which is now marketing ProgressSofts electronic check clearing solution around the globe.
