Newport Beach, CA – July 13, 2010 — LiveTime Software, a leading provider of Web, SaaS and Cloud-enabled ITIL 3 Service Management (ITSM) and Service Desk software, today announced it has achieved PinkVERIFY certification of 11 ITIL V3 Processes. This most recent milestone demonstrates LiveTime’s commitment to open standards and best practices to help businesses deliver more effective, efficient, and auditable customer service and support.
LiveTime 6.1 now includes Financial, Release and Deployment Management as part of the overall solution — at no additional charge.

Release and Deployment management extends the Change Management functionality and manages the delivery of changes to end users.
Out of the box enterprise integration with Authentication, Asset and Inventory Management, and Event Management has enabled customers such as Lockheed Martin, Verizon, Pricewaterhouse Coopers and Wellpoint to implement LiveTime within a matter of weeks not months!
Available On Demand (SaaS) or On Premise (software, hardware or virtual appliance), LiveTime is based on open standards and supports any operating system, any browser, and any database.
Focusing specifically on usability and tight integration across all processes, LiveTime Service Manager 6.1 enables organizations to roll out Service Catalog and Service Portfolio Management as easily as Incident, Problem, and Change Management.
