Tagetik 3.0 Brings Greater Visibility to Business Operations

LONDON, September 1, 2010 - Tagetik, a global provider of Performance Management, Enterprise
Governance, Risk & Compliance and Business Intelligence software solutions,
today announced that Keller Group plc, the international ground engineering
specialist, has selected Tagetik 3.0 to simplify the Group's consolidation
and reporting processes and to create a single data repository for all
contracts and tenders worldwide. Keller Group is renowned for providing
technically advanced and cost effective ground engineering solutions

"Following a thorough evaluation of all the major vendors, we selected
Tagetik: they offered a good combination of approach and functionality which
would allow us to deliver both the existing financial consolidation
functionality together with improved contract and tender reporting; our
preference was for an Excel-based solution that sits on SQL Server which
Tagetik could offer; we were impressed with Tagetik's integration approach,
and during the course of the project Tagetik has continually been prepared to
go the extra mile for us, always bringing solutions rather than potential
problems and carefully listening to our specific requirements in order to
deliver the most effective solution for the Keller Group business," explains
Dave Benson, Group Financial Controller, Keller Group.

Group-wide Database

Alongside the solution to simplify financial consolidation, the project
also encompasses the building of a single database of jobs and tenders across
all Group operating companies. This will enable Keller Group to more
effectively capture and analyse information across the Group.

Dave Benson explains, "Quality information about jobs and tenders is
important to the continued development of our business. Tagetik 3.0 will give
us a more automated, centralised system to allow enhanced visibility of our
jobs and tenders worldwide. A system that will enable us to more easily
monitor key metrics for the Group as a whole, by region, business or even
drill-down to individual contracts. Tagetik 3.0 will give us the level of
visibility of our business operations that we require to run a world-class

"Keller Group required a solution that could both simplify financial
consolidation with complex currency requirements across operations in 30
countries and create a single database to streamline the reporting of Group
jobs and tenders," added Shak Akhtar, Managing Director, Tagetik UK and
Ireland. "Tagetik 3.0 provides the ideal platform for both an effective
consolidation system and an intuitive database to manage all jobs and
tenders. The Tagetik team has a key role in implementing both systems to meet
the required deadline and to support Keller Group in any system roll-out to
subsidiary companies."

"This project strongly confirms that Tagetik can help organisations to
simplify the complexity in managing and monitoring financial performance and
operational results," says Manuel Vellutini, Chief Operating Officer at
Tagetik. "As we are specifically dedicated to supporting customers with
complex industry-specific needs, many international organisations are
selecting Tagetik 3.0 to improve their business. Keller Group will benefit
from a unified software environment with 'built-in' functionality to
effectively manage financial processes at both corporate and operational
