AUSTIN, Texas, July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Pervasive Software(R) Inc. (Nasdaq: PVSW), a global value leader in embeddable data management and integration software, today announced Pervasive Data Integrator(TM) is providing a distinct competitive edge to Pointserve, a leading provider of Economic Resource Optimization (ERO) solutions for customers with distributed sales and service resources in industries ranging from property services like Pest Control and Lawn Care to infrastructure services like broadband and utilities to product services like equipment maintenance. As an integral part of its channel-delivered software-as-a-service (SaaS) launch, Pointserve turned to Pervasive for ease of integration and shortened time-to-value.

Pointserve solutions typically deliver operational efficiency gains of 15 percent to 25 percent, giving its customers, partners and their customers the opportunity to deliver high-value services that improve customer retention and provide rapid, tangible return on investment. Pointserve saw a strategic opportunity to provide the small and midsized mobile services market with a SaaS-based ERO offering, but the product had to be easy to configure and use with rapid, low-cost transactional integration. Pointserve capitalized on Pervasive Data Integrator(TM) to seize the opportunity. Pervasive met Pointserve's requirement for rapid, lightweight, low-cost, loosely coupled integration.

"The SMB services space is a huge, untapped market for Economic Resource Optimization, but those companies require immediate payback and have no IT staff to manage applications on-site," said Ed Powell, Pointserve CEO. "In order to succeed we must have incredibly fast, robust deployment and integration. If we did everything else right, but failed to drive down integration time and cost, our opportunity would diminish significantly. Pervasive is providing a critical component of our solution." Using Pervasive Data Integrator, Pointserve delivers a powerful rapid template-driven integration tool for organizations looking to optimize their business performance.

For service companies, Pointserve's Economic Service Optimization solutions leverage a distributed, Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to optimize service for businesses of all sizes, from small five-person operations to large service enterprises to complex distributed service delivery networks.

"Pervasive is proud to continue its legacy of providing agile, embeddable integration solutions to partners like Pointserve who are harnessing disruptive technologies to address underserved markets," said Mike Hoskins, CTO of Pervasive. "We've taken a lightweight, loosely coupled integration approach that is ideal for SaaS delivery, and we are pleased to help Pointserve deliver powerful hosted optimization solutions to its growing customer base."
