Score Business Solutions Ltd. Partners with Appian to Deliver Industry Leading Business Process Management Suite in Europe and Asia

Partnership Significantly Expands Appian’s International Presence

Vienna, VA., May 22, 2007 Appian, the leading provider of Business Process Management Suites (BPMS), today announced that it has signed a partnership with Score Business Solutions Ltd., a Swiss-based consulting company with subsidiaries in Arad, Romania and Hong Kong, to provide Appian Enterprise to businesses in Europe and Asia. Score partners with leading technology providers to deliver the innovative solutions its manufacturing, trading and service customers require to optimize their supply chains. In addition to selling Appian Enterprise directly to its customers, Score is also delivering flexible and agile value-added composite applications built on top of the core Appian BPM infrastructure. Appian Enterprise delivers a powerful and efficient development environment, enabling Value Added Resellers (VARs) to extend the benefits and return on investments (ROI) of their complementary offerings. Score is adopting Appian’s BPM software as a platform for process improvement to both decrease the time to market for their process-based solutions as well as increase the agility of those solutions.

“As the leading BPM Suite on the market, Appian Enterprise enables us to maximize our customers existing technology investments, while also allowing us to deliver new optimized application packages that further increase ROI,” said Marcel Weber, CEO at Score. “Our customers trust Score to deliver solutions that address existing issues and future needs. Appian Enterprise fits perfectly with our mission and we are certain that our customers will immediately recognize its power. Additionally, we are incredibly excited about leveraging Appian Anywhere, Appian’s new on-demand BPM product offering, to provide our solutions to our customers in a software-as-a-service model.”

Appian’s BPM software provides organizations with the industry’s most sophisticated platform for rapidly developing and deploying next-generation composite process applications. It combines best-of-breed process management with broad collaboration and strong analytics functionality, effectively bringing process to people.

“As VARs like Score look for solutions that help extend the value they deliver to customers, Appian Enterprise provides them with a proven platform for managing strategic business processes and increasing the benefits of their existing, pre-packaged offerings,” said Philip Larson, Director of Product Management at Appian. “Appian BPM is recognized as one of the most functional and easy to implement BPM solutions on the market. This flexibility provides a superior platform for our partners to deliver new process-driven solutions, while also increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of their existing solutions.”

Appian’s Partner Program provides VARs with dedicated support, including marketing, development and technical support to ensure the success of their implementations. Appian also offers the widest range of training tools and options in the BPM market including specialized programs for its VAR partners. Appian courses and certifications offer both business and IT users the skills to effectively use, customize, and develop on Appian Enterprise, and to leverage the BPM suite for greater ROI.
