OEM Will Use Export Compliance Solution From Global Trade Management Suite

    SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- TradeBeam, Inc. the leading
provider of Global Trade Management (GTM) software and services, announced
today that Laurel Industrial Company, Inc., an exporter of geophysical
equipment, water resources equipment and marine measurement products, has
signed an agreement to use the restricted party screening and license
determination applications within TradeBeam's integrated GTM platform.  The
applications will provide the company with an automated solution for managing
government export requirements.
    With offices in San Jose, California, and Beijing, China, Laurel
Industrial has exclusive distributorship to the People's Republic of China
(PRC) for its venders. Laurel Industrial needed to automate its export
management processes to prevent the risk of non-compliance with regulatory
requirements and operational inefficiencies.  TradeBeam's manual restricted
party screening and license determination applications help the company
achieve this goal by automating screening checks for all orders processed.
"It's very important for us to know the laws and have a process in place to
ensure regulatory compliance," said Wei Wang, CFO of Laurel Industrial.
"TradeBeam has helped us address this concern by providing us with a solution
for managing government export requirements."
    It is expected that TradeBeam's Restricted Party Screening and License
Determination applications will help Laurel Industrial improve its export
management system and ensure compliance with U.S. export laws.  In turn,
Laurel Industrial will also be able to drive goods through its supply chain in
a more efficient manner.
    "We are pleased that Laurel Industrial has recognized the value of our
compliance solution and look forward to helping the company improve its global
trade operations," said Graham R.F. Napier, president and CEO of TradeBeam.
"We believe automating the export management process is just one step to
improving global trade operations. To maximize financial results, these types
of solutions need to be part of a broader offering encompassing logistics and
financial settlement related applications as well."
