The implementation of SolveIT Software's currency hedging system follows a successful proof-of-concept project that was completed in late 2006. The proof of concept was based on SolveIT Software's existing optimisation and simulation platforms using several Artificial Intelligence technologies to generate currency-hedging rules. The production-ready system is expected to improve the profitability of Michell's international contracts.

"SolveIT Software's currency hedging system is based on a unique combination of Evolutionary Algorithms and Fuzzy Logic, and can provide exporters with a much needed competitive advantage," said Dr. Zbigniew Michalewicz, Chairman of the Board of SolveIT Software. "By automatically adapting to changes in the marketplace, the system is able to recommend the optimal currency hedging strategy for international contracts."
