Nutley, NJ – Jan 20, 2009 – Alloy Software, Inc., a leading provider of IT service and asset management software solutions, today announced it achieved strong overall corporate growth in 2008. The company achieved record- setting quarter-over-quarter growth and saw a significant increase in product deployments during the 12-month period ending in December 2008. Key drivers for this growth included the launch of the new Alloy Discovery product, increased demand for the company’s flagship product – Alloy Navigator, the company’s newly introduced JumpStart program, as well as a range of new client engagements.

In 2008, Alloy expanded its product offerings by unveiling its new Alloy Discovery solution. Alloy Discovery is a comprehensive, budget-friendly, and easy-to-deploy network inventory solution that provides accurate and up-to-date information for every networked computer. Targeting small and medium-sized businesses as well as IT service providers, Alloy Discovery offers a broad range of features that allow users to take control of hardware and software inventory with an array of methods and strategies.

Other key drivers for Alloy Software’s 2008 growth included continued business with existing customers and increased customer adoption of both Alloy Navigator and Alloy Discovery across a variety of industries and vertical markets such as education, healthcare and manufacturing. New customers in 2008 included Conestoga Bank, Main Street Bank, Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts UOL Group Limited, Tennessee Pacific Group LLC, among others.

Another value-added service launched in 2008 was the Alloy Software JumpStart program. This new program was developed to assist prospective and existing customers in getting up-and-running with our products as quickly as possible while at the same time, adapting industry best practices to meet our customers’ business objectives. The program improves the overall customer experience by solidifying relationships between existing and potential clients and the Alloy Technical Support team.

“We are very excited to have witnessed the record-breaking growth over the last 12 months,” said Vladimir Vinogradsky, President and CEO at Alloy Software. “Alloy Software’s growth reflects Alloy Navigator‘s ability to provide customers with a centralized service desk platform to proactively administer all aspects of IT service management, as well as Alloy Discovery’s capacity to provide a comprehensive network inventory solution for administrators and IT service providers. In addition, we are extremely pleased to have launched the Alloy Software JumpStart program as it helps us significantly improve the overall customer experience – something we strive to do each and every day.”

In addition to new client engagements and product enhancements, 2008 was a year marked with industry accolades, awards and recognition for Alloy Software. In March, Alloy won the 2008 CRM Excellence Award presented by Customer Interaction Solutions magazine. Three months later, Alloy was selected as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its Alloy Navigator product by Everything Channel. This channel- specific award highlights companies delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants. In December, Alloy was named to Software Magazine’s Software 500 Next 100 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers.

In addition to these accolades, one of Alloy Software’s most notable achievements in 2008 was being named one of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

The magazine’s annual index of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America provides a snapshot of the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

Nutley, NJ – Aug 4, 2008 – Alloy Software, Inc., a leading provider of IT service and asset management software solutions, today announced continued strong demand for its Alloy Navigator and Alloy Discovery products within the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing clients of all sizes are optimizing Alloy Navigator as an IT service desk solution with integrated asset management and the capability to audit computers, while other manufacturing clients are optimizing Alloy Discovery as a comprehensive audit tool. Alloy Software attributes its success within the manufacturing market to each product’s low cost, ease-of-use, flexibility, scalability, and customization capabilities.

Both products offer manufacturing customers a powerful suite of tools to standardize, simplify, and streamline IT operations. Leveraging industry best practices, Alloy Navigator enables manufacturing customers to automate their IT service management processes, including incident, problem, change, and configuration management. Meanwhile, Alloy Discovery provides the tools necessary for manufacturing organizations to configure, deploy, run computer audits, and analyze audit results.

Manufacturing companies use Alloy Navigator to assist in the day-to-day operations of the IT department, which includes providing help desk support for software applications, printers, and workstation, while also supporting the technical needs of manufacturing managers, supervisors, and operators. Manufacturing companies who already have another help desk system in place, or whose IT management priorities require only audits of their computers, benefit greatly from Alloy Discovery. Alloy Discovery offers on-demand and scheduled audits of computer hardware and software inventory and provides a convenient interface for a wide array of system management tools, ranging from Telnet, SSH, and Remote Desktop to advanced remote management utilities, such as Sysinternals Troubleshooting Utilities.

A number of manufacturing companies (both domestic and abroad) are currently using the Alloy Navigator or the Alloy Discovery product. A few of these organizations include Makita USA, The D-J Group of Companies, Canam Steel Corporation, Ossur, and many more.

“Most manufacturing companies have multiple branches, with offices all across a certain state or even across the country,” explained Robert Josefs, Manager of Marketing and Sales at Alloy Software. “It is imperative for these organizations to have access to a reliable, easy-to-use, centralized help desk system to track and resolve support calls. In addition, for those manufacturing organizations that need to take control of their hardware and software inventory, Alloy Discovery is an ideal product as it offers an array of methods and strategies to carry out those tasks.”

Alloy Software Named a 2008 CRN Emerging Tech Vendor

Nutley, NJ – June 30, 2008 – Alloy Software, Inc., a leading provider of service and asset management software solutions, today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor for its Alloy Navigator product. CRN’s Emerging Tech list captures companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology that undercuts industry giants.

Alloy Navigator is the company’s flagship solution that provides a centralized service desk platform to proactively administer all aspects of IT service management. The product offers a powerful suite of tools to standardize, simplify, and streamline IT operations, and improve service delivery, including self-service. Leveraging industry best practices, Alloy Navigator enables organizations to automate incident, problem, change, configuration and service management.

According to the CRN Emerging Tech Survey, the top reasons solution providers add emerging technologies include, the technology is superior to other products in the market segment; the technology compliments a solution providers’ existing practice areas; emerging vendors provide better services opportunities; emerging vendors pay better attention to partners; emerging vendors offer higher margins, customers want alternative product choices; and emerging vendors have better joint marketing programs. In addition, 61 percent of solution providers surveyed plan to increase the number of emerging technology vendors they partner with in the next 12 months.

“New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable new ideas that solution providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty, and the CRN Emerging Tech list is where solution providers go to find these vendors,” said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel.

Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company’s revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
