Hospitality Leader GBCblue™ Changes Name to Ascension Software™

Ascension's Guest-Services Technology Sought by Multiple Verticals

VANCOUVER, WA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - Global Business Center, Inc., dba GBCblue™, announced today a company name change from GBCblue to Ascension Software™.

Ascension Software will continue to be the leader in defining guest-facing technology within the hospitality industry, while using its flagship ORION and Client Manager software products to explore new verticals, including healthcare, food service and retail.

"Based on the overwhelming popularity and adoption of the ORION interactive guest portals, the maturity of our secure computer kiosk software, Client Manager, and our proficiency in creating cutting edge mobile technologies, we felt a name that depicts our upward growth path across many vertical markets is more appropriate," explains Scott Mary, Chairman of Ascension Software™.

To handle new market penetration, as well as the explosion in recent VAR associations, Jody Blakely has accepted the new position of Channel Account Manager. Jody has been with GBCblue, and now Ascension Software, for two years after a long and successful sales position with MPC™ Computer Corp.
