Rimini Street Support for PeopleSoft Products Gains Momentum

Rimini Street Support Services for PeopleSoft has demonstrated accelerating client growth since its launch earlier this year. For example, The City of Flint, Michigan recently selected Rimini Street to provide next-generation support services for its PeopleSoft Human Resources and Payroll system at a substantial savings compared to Oracle support fees and the City's previous support vendor, SAP'/TomorrowNow (NYSE: SAP). The City of Flint recognized the better value of Rimini Street's unique service offering and innovative support model.

"The City of Flint needed to save money on its PeopleSoft HR/Payroll support but also needed a support partner with a proven track record the City could trust to deliver. After reviewing the bids of several companies, Rimini Street was selected for the significant cost savings and the additional support features it offered over other software support providers," said Tom O'Brien, Database Administrator, City of Flint Michigan. "Having done business with Seth Ravin and his team in the past, I know that I will receive outstanding support and service when I need it."

Rimini Street also announced continued growth of its Siebel client base, further solidifying its leadership position in the market for Siebel Support Services. In the past months, Rimini Street welcomed additional global, Fortune 500 and midsize clients operating a variety of Siebel products and releases with varying levels of implementation complexity and application customization.

"We have accelerating demand across our service lines, healthy win ratios, and solid execution of our aggressive business plan," said Seth Ravin, president & CEO of Rimini Street. "The result is a growing Rimini Street client base that is successful with our services, referenceable, and partnering with Rimini Street as an independent, trusted advisor and mission critical support provider."

"We look forward to bringing JD Edwards licensees the same high-level of service and innovative support we currently provide to Siebel and PeopleSoft licensees, at more than a 50 percent cost savings."
