Pivotal Presents Web Event on Strategic CRM for Asset Management

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2005) - Pivotal Corporation and CDC Corporation (NASDAQ:CHINA) -

Web Event Topic: 'Strategic CRM for Asset Management: Why the Time is Right'

Pivotal Corporation, a leading Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution provider and the CRM division of CDC Software, the enterprise software company of CDC Corporation (NASDAQ:CHINA), today announced that it will host: 'Strategic CRM for Asset Management: Why the Time is Right' -- a Web event featuring guest speaker TowerGroup research director and asset management industry expert, Gavin Little-Gill on Thursday, November 17, 2005 at 1:00 pm EST (10:00 am PST).

In recent years, major market events such as Y2K, the Internet bubble and new regulatory compliance issues have seen the asset management industry focus on near-term, tactical technology decisions. In contrast, 2006 promises a return to longer-term strategic thinking, as asset management firms reconsider their technology systems' ability to help them build client trust, assets, and revenue.

During this complimentary Web event, guest speaker, Gavin Little-Gill, Research Director for TowerGroup will explain why the time is right for asset management firms to evaluate more strategic client relationship management (CRM) systems. Join Pivotal financial services vertical manager Jason Rushforth as he facilitates a discussion on how leading firms are using client relationship management systems designed specifically for the asset management industry to:

- Offer greater data transparency to meet the demands of both regulators and clients

- Implement consistent sales and service processes in line with industry best practices

- Gain greater insight into available opportunities and best sources of profit

- Develop superior relationships with clients and distribution partners

- Establish what clients and the market demand: a reputation beyond reproach
