Burlingame, CA - July 14, 2003 Matisse Software Inc. today announced that the Matisse .NET solution is fueling the growth of Matisse software in Europe. Matisse software has seen a three fold increase in software license sales in the first half of 2003 as compared to same period last year.

"Conditions for software purchases are challenging, and while Europe remains relatively strong, American businesses are taking a more deliberate and measured approach to new software investments." says Didier Cabannes, CEO at Matisse Software.

Matisse has already experienced significant growth of its Matisse software in Europe and we want to move quickly to build the infrastructure and support services that the market will demand from us going forward." remarked Cameron Shafie, Vice President of Global Sales & Business Development.
