HORSHAM, Pennsylvania, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Astea International Inc.
(NASDAQ: ATEA), a leader in service lifecycle management solutions, announces
that Astea will offer 'Astea Alliance as a Service', a truly scalable field
service management cloud solution for enterprises where service is strategic
and mission-critical to their success. The offering will combine Capgemini's
infrastructure services experience and cloud expertise with Astea's global
field service management solution – Astea Alliance.

The subscription-based cloud service will help companies overcome the

business growth. Capgemini will be complementing the Astea Alliance as a
Service solution with implementation and support services.

enterprises rapidly streamline and automate business processes, improve
compliance with service level agreements, and synchronize customer touch
points for increased customer satisfaction. It transforms a disconnected
service business into a real-time service area network that incorporates
standardized, best-practice processes. By seamlessly connecting the call
center, back-office, and field technicians for flawless execution, Astea
Alliance as a Service lowers service costs and improves profitability.

"Capgemini is one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology
and outsourcing services. The combination of Astea's software solution with
this powerful 'as a Service' platform will offer a strong value proposition to
