     BMC Track-It! speeds problem resolution while improving operational
                                 efficiencies

BOSTON -- December 19, 2012

PeoplesBank operates 16 locations in Western Massachusetts. Its 250 plus
employees are tasked with carrying out the motto of the company, “A passion
for what is possible.” To make that a reality, PeoplesBank puts a great deal
of emphasis on customer service, Internet, telephone and mobile banking
services.

“We have a good mix of Internet, mobile and brick and mortar capabilities,”
said Joe Zazzaro, CIO and first vice president of information technology at
PeoplesBank. “While the trend is to bank online or with mobile technology many
of our customers still like to come into our branches.”

The bank’s IT team needed to provide quick, accurate responses to IT support
requests in order to keep the bank running smoothly and ensure employees and
customers received superior service. It implemented the BMC Track-It! solution
from BMC Software (NASDAQ:BMC) to enable more efficient help desk operations
and achieve its goals.

PeoplesBank selected BMC because it delivered faster problem resolution,
comprehensive inventory tracking and the level of technical support required
for optimal help desk performance.

Zazzaro added, “BMC Track-It! enables us to issue resolution much faster and
saves the time of not only the support technician, but also the end-user.
Nothing falls through the cracks and we are able to build a solutions database
that gives us a reference for the future.”

The BMC Track-It! solution proved so positive that it was introduced to the
call center and operations divisions of the bank, to help them with support
requests. BMC’s solution provides extensive reporting on what the real issues
are by trend so the bank can take a proactive approach to resolving any
problems.
