Versata Continues to Invest in Configuration Solution

Solution Includes Complete Migration Plan to Versata Configuration Software, Dramatically Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 16 -- Versata, a leading provider of enterprise software solutions with a focus on the lowest total cost of ownership, today announced that the company continues to advance its configuration solution. The ongoing commitment to investment includes research and development in Versata's industry-leading configuration, pricing, and quoting software and further development of migration tools for companies who use an alternate configuration system today.

"Enterprise sales solutions, including configuration, pricing, and quoting, are extremely complex, and they are at the core of our customers' most important business operations," said Tom Wilbur, Versata's product manager for Configuration Solutions. "We continue to invest in the research and development of these systems so that Versata's customers can be confident that their solutions will continue to evolve with their business. And now, by offering a complete migration package, Versata provides an easy transition and an overall reduction in total cost of ownership."

Unlike other software vendors that have found it too complex to develop a scalable configuration system and too difficult to provide ongoing support, Versata continues to heavily invest in advancing its solution. To protect its customers' investments in technology, Versata has also invested heavily in patent protection for its products. The company has more than one hundred related patents issued or in process, including five issued within the last nine months. In addition, recent patent-pending product improvements in the area of configuration provide substantial cost reductions and increase end-user usage:

o A new web services-based architecture eases integration to back-office
systems and allows the solution to be plugged into existing
o External data source integrations reduce maintenance effort and
facilitate data migration from other configuration systems
o Rich media technologies such as Adobe Flash provide easy-to-use,
fast-to-implement, interactive configuration interfaces
o Intelligent client-side caching technology dramatically speeds up
interface response times across global deployments

With over a decade of use in Fortune 500 companies worldwide, Versata's solutions have set a standard for configuration capability that no other software solution can approach. Industry-specific customizations enable fast time-to-benefit and higher value business functionality. And Versata's worldwide support and implementation teams enable customers to lower their total cost of ownership through attractive service and maintenance rates.

"For any company using configuration software that feels anxious about its investment going forward, Versata is offering one-stop shopping on a replacement solution that can out-perform their existing system and cost less," said Douglas Gray, general manager of Configuration Solutions at Versata. "We expect increasing demand from companies who need to know that their mission-critical sales systems will improve as their business evolves."
