Johannesburg and Cape Town Customers Hear Details on Upcoming ANCILE uPerform™ Release

ELKRIDGE, Md., July 9, 2012 – ANCILE Solutions, Inc., a global developer of learning and performance software solutions used by more than half of the Fortune 100, today announced details regarding two recent user group activities in South Africa for customers of its ANCILE uPerform™ software.

ANCILE joined with SAP South Africa to host two user group events in Johannesburg and Cape Town in late May. As part of a long-standing partnership agreement, SAP rebrands and resells ANCILE uPerform™ as SAP Productivity Pak by ANCILE.

ANCILE personnel delivered product and roadmap information to over 85 customers and potential customers, including an early look at the upcoming ANCILE uPerform™ 4.5 release due in July. In addition, ANCILE discussed ways of extending the use of ANCILE uPerform™ within an organization to address learning needs beyond customers’ SAP implementations.

As part of the regional activities, the SAP and ANCILE teams met with SABMiller, South Africa’s leading producer and distributor of lager and soft drinks, to discuss their experience with ANCILE uPerform™.

“It is encouraging to see a software development company respond so actively to the needs and requests of their customers. Small but meaningful changes — on a regular basis — keep the ANCILE product aligned with clients’ needs,” said Louise McBride, Learning & Development Manager: Systems & Technology at SABMiller.

ANCILE has 65 customers – representing over 261,000 users – in Africa, including the City of Cape Town, City of Johannesburg, Eskom Holdings Limited, Sanlam Life, Xstrata, Transnet Limited, SITA, SABMiller, Shoprite Checkers, and the Standard Bank of South Africa Limited.

“After a very successful first user group event in South Africa in 2011, we’re thrilled to see an even bigger event in 2012. Events like this are a great way for us to learn more about how our software helps our customers’ business and how we can enhance our software to provide even more value. We’d like to also recognize our partner, SAP, for their support and hosting of these events,” said Harm Mescher, ANCILE Sales Director for EMEA.

Later this year, ANCILE will be hosting three additional user group events in Lake Tahoe, California; Mainz, Germany; and Sydney, Australia. For detailed program information on each event, visit the Events page on www.uperform.com.
