ManageSoft Signs Long-Term Pact With CCP Software GmbH

Large 100,000 SKU Library Enables Automated License Entitlement

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - ManageSoft -- the leading provider of desktop to datacenter software asset management solutions -- announced today it has entered into a long-term agreement with technology partner CCP Software of Marburg, Germany. ManageSoft has incorporated the CCP Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) library into its Enterprise Compliance Manager™ (ECM) software to provide a new level of automation for license entitlement.

SKU numbers in this context represent computer software titles purchased from popular publishers including Microsoft, Adobe, and Symantec. These SKU numbers are imported from customer purchase order data into ECM, which automatically infers one or more software applications and license use conditions. The ECM software reconciles software installed in an enterprise against purchase data and license terms to determine license compliance.

"Our partnership with CCP has allowed ManageSoft to extend its lead in the license compliance arena and set a new level of automation for license management," said Alan Swahn, ManageSoft's vice president of marketing and business development. "To get a true license compliance position, information must be aggregated and reconciled from computer inventory, procurement data, human resources, and software publishers; there are no shortcuts."
