ST. LOUIS -- February 11, 2013

Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting
firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North
America, today announced it will serve as the evening event sponsor and
showcase its expertise at the Microsoft Lync Conference. The Lync Conference
will be held Feb. 19 – 21 in San Diego, Calif., and is the first ever
conference dedicated to communications professionals looking to learn and
network with the entire Lync community.

Microsoft Lync Server combines voice, instant messaging, audio, video, and web
conferencing into a richer, more simplified solution for organizations looking
to transform their business communications into more collaborative and
engaging interactions. As one of only seven Microsoft Worldwide National
Systems Integrator (NSI) Partners, Perficient partners with clients to
implement Lync technologies that integrate with client’s current applications
and enhance professional communications.

“Enterprise communications have become increasingly complex as more
information is readily available to more people and in multiple formats. At a
time when access to expertise and knowledge sharing is critical to business
success, our clients are looking for ways to harness innovation and improve
workforce productivity through improved communication tools and by removing
communication barriers,” said Matt McGillen, director of unified
communications for Perficient. “Lync is the only application that brings all
communications together in a single, simple way for users. With other
solutions you find that you need a new username and password, and a different
application for everything: phone, IM, audio conferencing, web conferencing
are all separate silos. Integrating Lync with current applications enables
more seamless and effective collaboration and communication within today’s

Newly-Designated Lync Certifications Attest to Client Support and Satisfaction

Perficient recently was named one of 15 Microsoft partners in the United
States to receive the Premier Support Lync Partner (PSLP) certification. The
PSLP certification designates Perficient as an official provider of Lync
solutions and support for clients. In addition to its PSLP certification,
Perficient has two Lync Microsoft Certified Masters on staff – Keenan
Crockett, and newly-certified Jason Sloan. The MCM certification is an
exclusive designation recognizing technical excellence, and Perficient is one
of a handful of partners with multiple Lync MCMs.

“For all the great improvements to communication that Lync brings, it does
require expertise to do a Lync deployment right. And it doesn’t end there;
supporting the environment after Lync has been rolled out is very important to
the well-being of our clients,” continued McGillen. “To ensure our consultants
can provide the best service and experience to our clients, Perficient has
invested in the certification process. With two Lync MCM consultants and our
recent PSLP certification, we are proud to be one of very few partners that
can provide top-notch support for our clients in the whole lifecycle, not just
during deployment.”
