SHANGHAI, ATLANTA-Feb. 16, 2010 – CDC Software Corporation (NASDAQ: CDCS), a
global provider of enterprise software applications and services, today
announced the general availability of Proof of Delivery, a new CDC Supply
Chain mobile application that provides companies with real-time visibility
and control of the flow of goods — from the warehouse to the customer.

Proof of Delivery helps to improve fleet productivity, whether in-house or
outsourced, by providing complete delivery information such as sites to
visit, delivery times and containers to unload (i.e. boxes, pallets, cartons
and parcels), and automates data capture with barcode scanning of goods. It
also helps to shorten the order-to-cash cycle since it enables immediate and
accurate invoicing, which decreases the number of disputed invoices and
minimizes credits/chargebacks. The application captures the consignee’s
written signature electronically, takes pictures of the condition of the
goods (i.e. damaged goods) and transmits them to the central office for
review. A built-in GPS receiver also enables the real time tracking of the
shipping vehicle and goods for better route management.

CDC Software believes that interest is already building for this innovative
new mobile product throughout CDC Supply Chain’s customer base. One leading
European building-supply wholesaler/retailer with 250 stores, who is using
the CDC Supply Chain Ranger platform for managing their 100 satellite
depots, has expressed interest in eventually upgrading to Proof of Delivery.

Based on CDC Supply Chain’s Ranger platform, Proof of Delivery works on any
handheld device supporting Windows 6.x, supports common network standards
and can also work offline due to a built-in cache mechanism. The web
services-based interface enables Proof of Delivery to integrate with CDC
Supply Chain and other CDC Software solutions, as well as other enterprise
and supply chain systems.

Proof of Delivery is the latest of several recent major product releases in
the last few quarters that further validates CDC Software’s delivery of
innovative products as part of its acquire, integrate, innovate and grow
strategy. The key enabler in the “innovate” component of CDC Software’s
corporate strategy is the company’s global technology and business platform
that features an infrastructure of multiple complementary applications and
services, domain expertise in vertical markets, state-of-the-art product
engineering centers in India and China and product engineering’s adoption of
the Agile development methodology which promotes high speed-to-market
delivery, enhanced quality and exceptionally collaborative product
development.

“Proof of Delivery is a mobile application targeting companies that want to
have better control of their transportation and customer fulfillment
process,” said Alan MacLamroc, chief product and technology officer of CDC
Software. “This mobile application helps companies improve their customer
service by minimizing handling errors and facilitating timely and accurate
deliveries. The solution also helps improve fleet productivity, optimize
supply chain visibility, minimize administrative paper work, and shorten the
order-to-cash cycle, all of which can positively impact a company’s bottom
line.”

“In addition to targeting CDC Supply Chain customers, Proof of Delivery is
expected to be cross sold into CDC Software’s Ross and CDC Factory customer
base. This latest new innovative product is yet another example of how we
believe we are skillfully executing on our acquire, integrate, innovate and
grow strategy.”
