Portellus Revamps Its Infrastructure to Accommodate More Clients

The Company Has Taken Strategic Internal Steps to Support Increased Growth

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 15, 2006 -- Portellus Inc., a leading provider of rules-based technology solutions, announced that it has taken a number of infrastructure and support enhancement measures that leave the company well positioned to manage growth and new client acquisitions. The initiative was spawned by an increased demand for the company's next-generation automation solutions.

"Since its inception, Portellus has consistently expanded our product offering and grown our client base year over year," said John N. Le, chairman and CEO of Portellus. "Much of the last eight months have been spent preparing for a wave of new customer acquisitions as a direct result of our solutions delivering the unmatched flexibility to swiftly respond to marketplace dynamics, create competitive advantages, increase profitability and reduce operational costs."

Portellus focuses on delivering strategic, phased implementations to safeguard clients from experiencing operational slips when moving away from legacy systems. Because its solutions are loosely coupled and can be implemented in a modular, as-needed fashion, enterprises have the luxury of proceeding as quickly or as slowly as your business and operations can handle. Consequently, Portellus boasts a 100% customer implementation success rate.

Among the steps Portellus took to bolster its infrastructure and support organization are:

--  Relocation of Corporate Headquarters -- In June of this year Portellus
    relocated its corporate headquarters to a facility more than double the
    space of its previous office.  The increased space supports the company's
    requirement to rapidly expand its operations on a wide scale.
--  Establishment of a Customer Support Center (CSC) -- Portellus has
    created a dedicated CSC to ensure customer requests are met with timely,
    accurate and complete problem resolution with the goal of delivering total
    customer satisfaction.
--  Expansion of Quality Control Department -- In order for quality
    assurance to maintain its efficiency and effectiveness in a hyper growth
    stage, Portellus has increased the size of its quality control department
    by 300% since the beginning of the year with experienced QA specialists.
    This positions the company to meticulously control the delivery of quality
    applications on highly complex projects of a large scale.
--  Expansion of Sales and Marketing Staff -- As part of its growth
    strategy, Portellus has doubled the size of its sales and marketing
    department in 2006. The senior-level hires populate several business units
    and place a strong emphasis on demand generation, direct sales and
--  Construction of a New Customer Readiness Lab (CRL) -- The CRL is
    designed to host visits from prospective clients interested in testing
    Portellus' products before they purchase them in a focused effort to
    mitigate risk and ensure ROI.  The CRL was expanded over the old lab
    specifically to allow for concurrent prospect visits to the new onsite
    evaluation, testing and solution simulation facilities.
--  Opening of New Development Offices -- To support increased development
    requirements, the company grew its existing Eastern European office and
    also opened two new offices.  The second office was added in Eastern Europe
    and a third was started in Southeast Asia.  While the existing office
    bolsters Portellus' services bandwidth, the other two allow for increased R
    & D activities.
--  Launch of Experience360 -- After observing multiple flaws in the
    traditional client-vendor relationship, Portellus launched a company-wide
    philosophy and approach to customers that places a strong emphasis on
    delivering a positive end-to-end client experience from pre-sales through
    implementation, training and post-sales support.  Experience360 comprises
    fundamental principles that holistically deliver elevated customer service,
    strategic implementations and technology flexibility.
Throughout 2006, Portellus has expanded its infrastructure, added to its staff, established new departments and implemented new approaches all as part of the company's strategic plan to continue with aggressive expansion to support a strong demand for its automation solutions.
