Trillium Software Unveils Latest Version of Trillium Software System to Improve Business Leaders' Control of Information

Trillium Software Unveils Latest Version of Trillium Software System to Improve 
Business Leaders' Control of Information Quality 
Compliance, Risk, and Industry-Specific Data Quality Capabilities
Drive Business Benefits of Newest Software Release 
BILLERICA, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 --  Trillium Software(R), a
business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS) and a leading provider of
Total Data Quality(TM) solutions, has delivered the latest version of
the Trillium Software System(R). This newly-released and immediately
available data quality solution provides business leaders with
improved access to the critical information and data required for a
multitude of risk, compliance and business applications. Designed to
identify and understand information for a variety of industry-centric
business processes, Trillium Software's new release has shown market
acceptance and unique value for a range of risk management and
compliance initiatives that are critical to how companies do
business.  
Trillium Software solutions sit at the intersection of business
processes, subject matter expertise and data quality management. The
company's data quality platform enables business managers to assume
the lead role in defining the types of data that are important and
how it needs to be represented in order for them to be successful.
The combination of Trillium Software's industry-leading data quality
solution, coupled with deep financial and insurance subject matter
expertise, as well as years of data quality process knowledge,
provides clients with a platform for long-term business process
improvements in key vertical markets. 
"Now, more than ever, organizations understand the impact of both
structured and unstructured data on the decision-making process that
is key to improved business performance," said Stephen Applebaum,
senior analyst, property & casualty insurance, Aite Group. "Trillium
Software has provided a platform that delivers real business benefits
for a broad range of critical processes, including those that help
insurance companies reduce claims costs, increase customer retention
and improve operational efficiency." 
Data quality problems represent real business concerns and
line-of-business managers, along with their IT counterparts, are
stepping up to better understand how poor data quality manifests
itself within industry-specific business processes. In two
time-sensitive business processes, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance
Act (FATCA) (in which identifying indicia is key to accurate
reporting) and in insurance claims processes/systems (in which free
form text analysis is vital to speeding claims settlement and
improving claims outcomes), high quality information is essential.  
"Today, more and more of our clients are from the business side of an
organization, not just the internal IT department, and they tell us
they can't get access to nearly half of the information that is
critical to their decision-making processes," said Len Dubois, chief
marketing officer at Trillium Software. "We have designed the latest
version of the Trillium Software System to give business leaders
access to that data, both structured and unstructured. Today's
version of our solution is the perfect balance of IT functionality
and business benefit. In data governance and high volume, data
intensive-business applications, data due diligence is imperative to
success."  
New data visualization capabilities in the Trillium Software System
enable business executives and managers to visually understand the
impact of data quality on their business processes through reporting
and business intelligence. Complete business rule integration between
profiling and cleansing, and more detailed rule prioritization and
search, enable business leaders to clearly define and customize rules
for compliance with specific regulations or processes. Expanded
global data support, security, and usability enhancements provide the
business with the flexibility to access a variety of data types --
from globally-distributed sources -- and process both unstructured
and structured data points from documents such as insurance claims
adjuster notes.  
Dubois added, "Our newest release uniquely positions Trillium
Software to solve today's most difficult information challenges while
also promoting a more collaborative environment between IT and
business executives. As a result, IT can concentrate on moving data
through many channels including mobile devices, the cloud, data
centers and third party data sources, while giving business leaders
the ability to make decisions based on a full universe of data. This
is a Trillium Software core competency and we are confident that we
deliver on it better than anyone else."
