TeamSpirit Software Partners With Pervasive for a Spirited Attack on Integration Challenges

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 12: Pervasive Software(R) Inc. (NASDAQ:PVSW), a global value leader in embeddable data management and integration software, today announced TeamSpirit Software Ltd., a leading provider of HR and payroll software solutions, has become a Pervasive Integration Platinum Partner. TeamSpirit will embed Pervasive Business Integrator(TM) to enhance new market opportunities while adding value for existing customers to more efficiently manage large amounts of data. TeamSpirit has been a long-time Pervasive database partner, embedding Pervasive PSQL, Pervasive's award-winning data management solution, in TeamSpirit applications.

Based in the United Kingdom, TeamSpirit Software Ltd. has more than 25 years experience in developing software and services purely dedicated to the requirements of payroll and HR software. They have successfully implemented software for more than 500 clients with between 100 and 50,000 employees, including many blue chip companies and household names from public and private UK sectors.

"Our adoption of Pervasive Business Integrator gives us confidence that we can solve increasingly complex data migration and integration issues, which gives us added leverage with existing customers and unique value for new clients," said Nigel Derbyshire, product development manager for TeamSpirit Software Ltd. "With Pervasive having been our trusted embedded database business partner for almost 20 years, we were confident that its integration technology could also be embedded into our own software with ease, allowing us to reduce development time to build complex solutions and help our clients accommodate complex and changing statutory provisions without having to manually key in data."

TeamSpirit selected Pervasive Business Integrator to provide additional functionality to existing and prospective clients, simplify the migration process of new clients from legacy systems and integrate TeamSpirit data into clients' larger enterprise-level solutions. TeamSpirit expects to reduce costs as well, thus eliminating the need to employ dedicated people with the relevant skill sets to produce hard-coded solutions. A key competitive advantage for TeamSpirit will be rapid adoption of new in-year forms introduced by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

"Pervasive Business Integrator enables organizations large or small to experience the benefits of agile, embeddable integration," said Mike Hoskins, CTO of Pervasive Software. "Using our real-time, event-driven, scheduled and message-based integration, TeamSpirit can help their clients cost-effectively and efficiently meet daily HR and payroll business demands. In addition, as a true 'buy once, use many' solution, we see partners continually increase their ROI as they find new ways of using Pervasive solutions -- a win-win for both our partners and their customers."
