STC Builds The Internet’s Fastest-Growing, Free Employment Site With

BEDFORD, Mass., March 17, 1997 -- Progress Software Corporation
(NASDAQ:  PRGS) today announced that HeadHunter.NET©
(http://www.HeadHunter.NET), the Internet's first free, full-featured,
interactive job search and recruiting aid was built and launched in
just three weeks.  Developed by Software Technology Corporation (STC),
a software consulting firm, HeadHunter.NET is made possible by
Progress Software’s WebSpeedä Internet Transaction Processing
application development tool.

HeadHunter.NET now has over 11,000 jobs on-line and services more than
10,000 searches per day.  With employment opportunities ranging from
part-time to jobs with salaries of up to $500,000, the total value of
salaries for jobs posted on the site is nearly $1 billion.  The
popularity of the site is due to its exceptional searching
characteristics that surpass those provided by other recruiting sites.

HeadHunter.NET is fully automated with WebSpeed technology and was
designed with unique capabilities that can save recruiters and
jobseekers time and money by efficiently organizing what can be an
overwhelming sea of information.

WebSpeed Brought the Site from Drawing Board to the Web in Three Weeks
"We needed to quickly develop an application that would be able to
scale a significant amount of data. WebSpeed’s solid, enterprise-level
web development capabilities allowed us to deliver a very significant
amount of data with both ease and efficiency," said STC President
Warren Bare.  "It gave us a very easy-to-program interface to a
back-end database, it was so easy that it only took us three weeks to
develop and launch HeadHunter.NET."

WebSpeed is the first commercially available, open development and
deployment environment that enables organizations to quickly and
productively build transaction processing applications on the Internet
and corporate intranets.  The WebSpeed solution meets the three key
requirements needed for delivering robust Internet transaction
processing applications:  it scales dynamically to support expanding
volumes of Web activity; it ensures data integrity; and it delivers
robust performance.  In addition, the open architecture of the
WebSpeed solution allows developers to choose the leading technology
that best suits their applications and computing environment.
