Major UK Financial Services Group Deploys SPSS Predictive Analytics for Credit Risk Management Operations; SPSS Replaces SAS.

CHICAGO -- SPSS Inc. (NASDAQ:SPSS), a leading worldwide provider of predictive analytics software, today announced that Alliance & Leicester Plc, one of the leading financial services organizations in the United Kingdom, has implemented SPSS for its credit risk management operations. In replacing existing SAS licenses, SPSS predictive analytical software will enable Alliance & Leicester to improve its approach to data analysis.

SPSS technology reduces time-consuming programming tasks and will enable the credit risk department to better focus on its key objective -- managing credit risk.

"Extracting key information quickly from our data is vital to the risk management activities of the department," said Simon Baum, director of credit and risk at Alliance & Leicester. "With SPSS we will be able to move toward standardized analysis, giving the most accurate view of information and being best positioned to make well-informed decisions. SPSS has worked with us to demonstrate that its predictive analytics software is an appropriate tool for our needs in terms of both functionality and cost."

"It's great to see such a major industry player recognize the value SPSS can add to its organization," said Adrian Carr, vice president of EMEA sales at SPSS. "We believe Alliance & Leicester will see a great return on its investment as a result."
