Birdville Independent School District Graduates to Rimini Street Support Services


PeopleSoft Licensee Achieves 50% Support Cost Savings and Receives Ultra-Responsive Service

LAS VEGAS, September 10, 2007 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading independent maintenance and support provider for Siebel, PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards (NASDAQ: ORCL) software, today announced that Birdville Independent School District has achieved savings of more than 50% in annual support costs for their PeopleSoft system since switching to Rimini Street last year, has received a level of service that surpasses their prior experience with the software vendor, and is positioned to achieve its objective of running its PeopleSoft applications through 2012 and beyond without any costly, required upgrades.

Located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Birdville provides K-12 education in thirty-two campuses across seven cities. Birdville is one of the largest school districts in Texas with approximately 22,000 students. To support its organizational goals, Birdville has chosen an information technology strategy that includes reducing annual software maintenance costs and driving more value out of its existing PeopleSoft 8.8 HRMS and Financials applications by extending the operational life of these mature products. Rimini Street is helping Birdville to achieve its objectives by providing timely, accurate tax & regulatory updates with the fastest legislature-to-liveTM process in the industry, as well as quickly identifying and resolving issues without the need to perform costly upgrades or to apply cumbersome bundles of multiple fixes.

"Birdville is focused on educational excellence for its students," said Julie Wallace, Executive Director of Technology, Birdville Independent School District. "To help us deliver on our educational goals, our mission-critical PeopleSoft products need to operate correctly and smoothly. Rimini Street has quickly resolved every single service request we've raised with the most responsive service-level we have ever experienced. Rimini Street will enable us to meet our financial and IT strategic objectives in the future with more than a 50% savings in annual support costs. Beyond the cost savings and outstanding support, the most important value is the savings in future implementation costs. We won't have to do another implementation for quite a while. We couldn't be happier with our decision to move our support to Rimini Street."
