OTP Software Selects Augeo's Intelligent Planner for Professional Services Automation

Augeo's PSA Solution to Manage OTP Software's Growing Consulting Practice

SAN JOSE, Calif.-September 1, 1999- Augeo Software, Inc., global leader in professional services automation (PSA), announced today that OTP Software, Inc. will implement Augeo's Intelligent PlannerTM in its IT/ management consulting and implementation firm.

Similar to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems that automate the mission-critical processes of manufacturing or product-centric organizations, Augeo's PSA solution, Intelligent Planner, is specifically designed to automate the "practice-critical" business processes of consulting and service organizations. The company will install the product in September and expects to roll the product out to the entire organization in the year 2000.

OTP Software selected Augeo's Intelligent Planner because of Augeo's established user base of over 100 customers in Europe, and because the product's functionality demonstrates Augeo's knowledge and understanding of consulting organizations.

"OTP is the classic user of Augeo's Intelligent Planner," said John Orcutt, president and CEO of Augeo Software. "This is a PSO that is rapidly growing and in need of a solution to manage its resources, projects and intellect to maintain client satisfaction and continue its upward growth."

"By automating our business with Intelligent Planner, we expect to achieve a better view of our consulting resource requirements for our current and future engagements," said Peter Liljegren, Partner, OTP Software. "This will ultimately enable us to provide even better service to our clients."

"Augeo's pace is rapidly escalating," continued Orcutt. "Our momentum couldn't be stronger, as we grow our domestic sales team and become as successful in the PSA market in the United States, as we are in Europe."

Designed for large Professional Service Organizations (PSOs) -- high-tech consulting firms, systems integrators, product service groups and corporate IT departments -- Augeo's solution, Intelligent Planner TM, dramatically improves profitability and organizational effectiveness by more strategically managing an organization's resources, projects and corporate intellect.
