 BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite streamlines Navy non-tactical support
                  requests and improves business efficiency

HOUSTON -- February 27, 2013

NAVY 311 provides sailors, families and the military community with on-demand
information and assistance for non-emergency, non-tactical issues across
systems, equipment, medical, personnel, logistics, installations and other

To enable access to the expansive fleet support network via a single customer
service entry point, the Navy needed robust and scalable IT service management
software to reliably handle high-volume interactions and diverse situations
from around the world.

The U.S. Navy selected the BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite from BMC
Software (NASDAQ: BMC). This product offers the most comprehensive and
scalable solution, resulting in better service at a lower cost. Remedy can
operate out-of-the-box with no need to customize any code.

The BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite provides NAVY 311 with a single
software solution that is centrally managed but de-centrally implemented
within the network of fleet support providers. These support groups can take
advantage of volume discounts, thereby reducing overall costs for the larger
Navy enterprise.

In addition, the dashboards and analytics enabled by the BMC Remedy software
provide business intelligence that gives the Navy broader visibility into
recurring issues so leadership can make improved resource decisions. Analytics
also offer the capability to “push” critical information to fleet customers in
anticipation of planned maintenance and/or operations.

The Challenge

The U.S. Navy needed an enterprise-level business solution that simplified
Sailor non-emergency interaction across individual Navy contact centers and
provided modern data collection and mining capabilities.

The Solution

The U.S. Navy deployed the BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite, including
incident management and service request management, as well as dashboards and
analytics. This provided a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) capability
that helped unify dozens of different Navy call centers and supports a modern
approach to data collection and analysis.


By implementing the BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite, the U.S. Navy
achieved important benefits. The organization:

  *Simplified and standardized service request management, thereby gaining
    economies of scale and reducing costs
  *Achieved faster response times to meet an extremely diverse set of needs
  *Captured and aggregated transaction data across the Sources of Support
    network to better understand fleet issues and support needs
  *Implemented data-driven decision making with the ability to uncover trends
    and eliminate recurring problems
