November 29, 2005 -- LiveTime® Software, a leading provider of Service Management solutions, and Rave Computer Association, Inc. have entered into a strategic alliance that enables Rave to resell LiveTime’s new Help Desk and Support Desk Appliances to the North American Market.

The benefits to businesses that invest in these solutions are significant and ongoing. The LiveTime Appliance reduces the effort and wasted time that is usually associated with installing, configuring, and then maintaining a server. “We saw a real need for a complete plug-and-play solution for organizations that want a highly tuned, pre-configured, hardened service and support solution with virtually no maintenance,” said Dr. Darren Williams, CEO of LiveTime Software, Inc. “LiveTime’s appliance models are truly unique, and since Rave’s success spans a diverse customer market, we are confident they will be widely accepted in the market,” he said.

Since 1988, Rave Computer Association, Inc. has provided hardware and software solutions to meet their customers' diverse requirements through integration, customization, and value-added services, but this is the first time that a Customer Service solution has been offered pre-installed and ready-to-run. “These products ensure customers a secure, fault tolerant, plug-and-play solution that will have them up and running within a day” said Tony Scicluna, Vice President of Sales, of Rave Computer Association. “We are pleased be the first to offer these appliances to the market,” he continued “There is no question this will be a popular choice for customers who need the assurance of security and the flexibility of Open Source.”
