Arbortext Signs Concord Communications and Maytag Among 93 New Customers
for Third Quarter

Experiences 27% growth from second quarter

ANN ARBOR, Mich., December 3, 2001 -- Arbortext, Inc., the only global
provider of XML-based software that enables the creation, editing and
publishing of information to multiple media types from a single source
of content, today announced a 27 percent growth over the previous
quarter.  Fueling this growth is the addition of 93 new customers during
the third quarter, including Concord Communications (NASDAQ: CCRD) and
Maytag Corporation.

"Arbortext continues to do well in a tough economic environment because
our XML-based publishing software cuts costs and improves worker
productivity," said Ray Schiavone, President and CEO of Arbortext. "Our
ability to deliver provable returns while helping companies increase
customer satisfaction and retention continues to persuade the world's
leading organizations to choose Arbortext software.  Helping
organizations cut costs while improving the accuracy, freshness,
consistency and usability of their information across all media is an
irresistible combination to companies seeking to do more with less."

Arbortext’s Epic product suite enables organizations to reuse rather
than recreate information, reducing both cost and time to market with
new products.  Concord Communications and Maytag join Arbortext’s Global
2000 customers who are experiencing the benefits that an XML authoring
and multichannel publishing solution offers, including working more
efficiently, reducing publishing times, and staying ahead of customer

“We chose to work with Arbortext because the Epic product suite gives us
the flexibility to provide our customers with the documentation they
need and in the format of their choice,” said Bill Tracy, Vice President
of Engineering at Concord Communications.  “We think of our User
Centered Information Group as an extension of the sales team, and when
you have happy customers, you have repeat customers, which ultimately
leads to increased revenues – something we’re seeing each quarter.”
