Record Revenue Growth Marked by Acquisition of Leading Fortune 500 Customers

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Lavante, the leading provider of on-demand supplier management solutions, including recovery auditing and supplier information management, today announced that Q1 2011 continued the company's strong momentum with record revenue and technology advancement. Lavante's Q1 revenue grew 94% over Q1 2010, with major gains in new customer acquisitions, account expansion, and strong revenue increases across the current customer base. Lavante was also awarded a new patent that covers its ground-breaking statement audit processes, technology, and application that fundamentally change the recovery auditing industry.

Lavante's Q1 results demonstrate a continued dominance in the supplier management solution market. Revenue growth came not only from new customers, but also from increased revenue and expanded engagements with current customers. Lavante enables companies to drive dollars to the bottom line, ensure accurate quality of supplier data, and improve supplier relationships. Lavante on-demand solutions are used to recover millions of dollars for large enterprises on an annual basis. The rapid time to value is recognized by one of Lavante's new Fortune 500 clients:

"We are thrilled with the results from Lavante. Within one month of signing the contract, Lavante started delivering numerous credits to us, including credits that our primary recovery auditors provider missed. From a speedy deployment to seamless access to all related information through the online dashboard, the Lavante Recovery solution has had minimal impact on our staff while driving real dollars to our bottom line." Payment Process Manager - A Fortune 500 Global Technology Leader
