CoWare Chooses Above All Software for Integrated Customer Service Solution; Composite Application to Streamline Customer Service Processes and Improve End-User Satisfaction.

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. -- Above All(R) Software, a provider of award-winning business integration software, today announced that CoWare, Inc., the leading supplier of platform-driven electronic system-level (ESL) design software and services, has selected the Above All Composite Application Platform(TM). CoWare is using Above All to implement a composite application that integrates its software defect tracking system with its customer service solution to enable its customer service representatives to provide customers with up-to-date product information and to automatically track product defects.

CoWare uses salesforce.com as its primary CRM solution and ClearQuest for its product defect tracking. These two solutions were not integrated, which required customer support representatives to toggle between two solutions to report and track product defects and to provide feedback to customers. CoWare considered custom coding an integrated solution, but decided using Above All would be less costly and less time consuming. CoWare can also shorten the time to future solutions by taking advantage of the re-use principles on which Above All is based.

"CoWare has been expanding aggressively. We achieved record-high revenues in 2005, and we recently launched our new CoWare Virtual Platform product family," said Mikael Hakansson, Director of IT, CoWare. "As we've grown, the processes we have in place to support our customers are being affected because of the lack of integration. We selected Above All because it will enable us to solve the very real problem our support people are facing while simultaneously enhancing customer service."

Using Above All, CoWare will develop a composite application that integrates ClearQuest and salesforce.com. This new composite application will enable customer support representatives to enter product issues directly into ClearQuest without ever leaving their intuitive and familiar salesforce.com environment. A case number is generated by ClearQuest but will be stored in a newly-defined field in salesforce.com. The customer service agent can then view status and details about each case without resorting to "swivel-chair" integration. Over time, CoWare intends to expose this composite application functionality directly to customers via a self-service portal, streamlining the support processes even further.

"CoWare took a pragmatic yet progressive approach to solving a very real problem that was causing pain for their internal support team," said Jon Temple, President and CEO of Above All Software. "By implementing a composite application, they will be able to quickly solve this issue with no disruption to their staff or their rapid growth."
