Cherwell Service Management Boosts Its Pink Elephant PinkVERIFY Status to Eleven ITIL Processes

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  Cherwell Software, Inc. ("Cherwell") today announced that its breakthrough product, Cherwell Service Management™, received certification for five more processes of ITIL V3 (Information Technology Infrastructure Library, version three) compatibility from Pink Elephant through the PinkVERIFY program.

PinkVERIFY is the only independent certification program worldwide to recognize software that supports the definition and workflow requirements of specific ITIL version three (V3) processes. In order to achieve PinkVERIFY certification, the ITSM software undergoes a rigorous and independent assessment by a highly-qualified Pink Elephant consultant, and must satisfy 100% of the mandatory and integration criteria for a specific process.

"We are pleased to recognize that Cherwell Service Management™ has achieved PinkVERIFY status," said David Ratcliffe, President of Pink Elephant. "Our thorough and objective assessment showed that Cherwell Software designed its software from the ground-up, with ITIL in mind. Now, with the PinkVERIFY 'stamp of approval,' businesses can feel confident that Cherwell Service Management will support their implementation of ITIL best practices."
