Named a 2010 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award Winner

SAN DIEGO ‑ July 22, 2010 ‑ Service‑, the creators of modern software‑as‑a‑service (SaaS) for IT service management, today announced it has been named a winner of the Red Herring North America 100 award honoring the year's most promising North American private technology ventures.

Red Herring's Top 100 North America list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising companies and entrepreneurs and celebrates technology innovation. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, YouTube and eBay would change the way people live and work.

Service‑ helps customers automate the delivery of quality IT service based on processes such as those outlined in the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Service‑ customers utilize the application to manage service requests, incident, problem, change, and knowledge management. Service‑ is also used for IT project and portfolio management, IT cost management, service catalog and service portfolio, discovery and application dependency mapping, CMDB, IT asset management and as an application development platform‑as‑a‑service (PaaS).

Service‑ has created a completely new software experience for enterprise IT organizations by creating a powerfully simple SaaS experience for IT service management. Service‑ developers take inspiration from modern consumer Web technologies and apply the same intuitive usability to a modern enterprise ITSM application.

"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Service‑ embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Service‑ should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

The Red Herring editorial team selected Service‑ from a pool of hundreds after evaluating contenders on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy and market penetration.
