SAN MATEO, California, March 27 /PRNewswire/ --

- Over 400 Companies Now Benefit From ServiceFlow BSM Solutions Across Diverse Industries and Geographic Regions in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas

Digital Fuel, the leader in Business Service Management (BSM) software solutions, today announced its best year yet in terms of revenue, customer acquisition and client success results for its fiscal FY07 period. The increasing demand for its SLA Management business applications have enabled Digital Fuel to record 12 consecutive quarters of revenue growth in the nascent BSM space.

"2006 was another year of 100% plus growth for Digital Fuel, a year in which we hit record new customers, record bookings, and continued success for our customers," said Yisrael Dancziger, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are especially proud of delivering business value quickly to our customers, as well as providing increasing value each year. All aspects of our business are operating at excellent levels which positions Digital Fuel well for another extraordinary year ahead."

The momentum generated in fiscal 2007 culminated with the addition of over 100 new service relationships in the year-a record number of new client wins for the company-expanding our footprint to well over 400 companies. New customers benefiting from Digital Fuel's BSM solutions include companies from across EMEA, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific regions with several new customers acquired through Digital Fuel's partnerships with leading service providers, the world's largest ERP supplier, and one of the foremost telecommunications suppliers in the world. The company's impressive list of new customers includes such companies as British Telecom, Capgemini, Cisco, Computacenter, IBM, Schneider Electric, SITA, Transport for London, and Xansa, to name just a few.

Digital Fuel experienced another year of 100% support renewals by its customers, a testament to the quality of its BSM solutions and the company's commitment to deliver tangible business value. During fiscal 2007, the company launched a new software solution called ServiceFlowTM Billing and Chargeback, a logical value-added extension for current customers employing ServiceFlowTM SLA Management. ServiceFlowTM Billing and Chargeback helps companies manage important financial processes associated with IT and other business services through advanced capabilities that simplify the chargeback of service cost to consuming business units, the ability to analyze actual service cost compared to budget, and a host of other advanced capabilities.

The expansion of the Digital Fuel customer base demonstrates deeper market penetration in a wide range of industries that realize business value from its BSM solutions: Financial Services, Manufacturing, Telecommunications , Network Services, Insurance, Government, Aerospace & Defense, Consumer Products, and more.
