1,200 LexisNexis(r) Authors Use Arbortext Enterprise Publishing Software
to Automate Editorial Process

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 22, 2005 - Arbortext, the leading provider of
Enterprise Publishing software, today announced LexisNexis, a global
provider of legal, business and news information, has standardized on
its software to improve efficiency and speed of the editing and approval

accurate online information at any time for their reference requests.

Authors at LexisNexis update over a million documents every day, and the

"A key component of our business strategy is to implement applications
that can be easily leveraged throughout the organization," said Stephen
Casbeer, Senior Director of Content Creation at LexisNexis.  "Arbortext
has worked with us for a number of years and has consistently built and
delivered applications that meet our expanding system requirements.
They are an important piece of our editorial process."

scalability requirements for global systems support in content creation
and publishing.  Using Arbortext software, LexisNexis has implemented a
content creation strategy that works within its existing business
processes and existing IT infrastructure.

efficiencies in their editorial operations," said Raymond Schiavone,
President and CEO at Arbortext.  "We're proud to continue our work with
LexisNexis as they build and implement a content creation strategy
across the organization."
