-- Single database model to provide full content management for leading beauty product wholesale and retail distributor across multiple sales channels --

Lincolnshire, IL – August 9, 2006 - Junction Solutions, the largest provider of vertical industry focused enterprise software and services based on the Microsoft Dynamics™ AX (formerly Axapta) platform, today announced that Folica, Inc., the web’s most popular beauty store, has chosen JunctionMCR™, a Multi-Channel Retail ERP solution built on Microsoft Dynamics™ AX, to manage its clients’ business across multiple sales channels.

Based in Cranbury, NJ, Folica Beauty Supply is composed of two divisions, each serving a different customer base: Consumer Products Division features consumer-friendly products, available to general public (www.folica.com) and Professional Products Division that carries professional beauty products, available to licensed beauticians only (www.folicaPro.com). Product offerings range from hair care to skin care to nail care for both men and women.

Since opening its doors in 1998, Folica, Inc. has increased order processing from 100 to nearly 2,000 orders per day. Folica out-grew their old system and required a new platform to automate shipping and customer service. After an extensive search of the products that could reasonably meet the needs of this growing company, Folica ultimately chose JunctionMCR™ because it offered the greatest competitive advantage, best possible features with the highest overall value.

“The single database design of JunctionMCR™ combined with superior technological functionality will give Folica the platform to improve order processing, achieve full content management and meet growth objectives over the next ten years,” said Sapna Parikh, General Manager of Folica, Inc. “Folica remains committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers. We want to proactively meet the needs of our industry while continuing to offer the widest array of products.
