Partnership Supports Company's Growing International Channel Network, Customer Base and Global Expansion

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2010) - Plateau Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class SaaS solutions for talent management, today announced a partnership with Ambow Education, a leading provider of personalized education and training services in China, that deepens Plateau's commitment to its expanding international customer base and channel. Under the terms of the agreement, Ambow will resell Plateau's full suite of SaaS talent management solutions to enterprise customers across China.

Ambow Education is a market leader in e-Learning technologies, education and vocational training services throughout Mainland China and boasts an impressive network of offices and physical training centers. Through its partnership with Plateau, Ambow will market and resell Plateau's full suite of talent management solutions and service offerings to its customer base, which includes many of China's largest government agencies and companies, including several Fortune 500 organizations. Ambow's sales and marketing activities will also extend to new business throughout Mainland China, capitalizing on Ambow's impressive physical and commercial presence throughout Mainland China. At the heart of Ambow's education services is a 'learning engine,' which constantly monitors its students' interactive learning performance, tracking and evaluating progress, and modifying the curriculum and learning experience in response to individual development. Access to Plateau's integrated talent management solutions will enhance Ambow's 'learning engine' and expand the company's existing enterprise services.

"Integrating global resources has always been an important channel for delivering world-class education and talent services to Ambow's local clients. We are confident in Plateau's technical solutions, and believe the Plateau platform will become a key component of our enterprise learning and talent services," said Dr. Huang Jin, president and CEO of Ambow. "Together with pre-integrated content and Ambow's focused, professional education services, we will provide one-stop solutions of the highest quality to our enterprise clients."

The partnership continues significant international momentum for Plateau, who expanded its global footprint in 2009 and achieved record growth in international markets for its fiscal first half 2009, which ended August 31, 2009. During that time period, Plateau added several new international customers, signed several new international channel partners, and achieved a 60 percent increase in international bookings, which represented nearly 30 percent of Plateau's total software bookings.

"Interest in and demand for Plateau's solutions from international markets has steadily increased over the past year," said Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO of Plateau. "With their strong presence in Mainland China and solid reputation for delivering high quality professional services, Ambow Education is a perfect partner for us.
