Vancouver, BC, July 8, 2003
— Pivotal Corporation (Nasdaq: PVTL; TSX: PVT), today congratulated the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation for its outstanding efforts and relentless determination in bringing the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games to Vancouver.
As an active member of the British Columbian high-tech community, Pivotal realized the great potential contribution of the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics to the culture and economy of the province. With that in mind, Pivotal supported the bid by donating Pivotal CRM software to the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation in 2000. To ensure that everyone came together to deliver on the dream, the bid committee used Pivotal to collaborate more effectively and manage interactions during the bid process.
“As a sponsor of the Vancouver Bid, Pivotal is thrilled that the IOC has selected Vancouver as host for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic games,” said Bo Manning, president and CEO, Pivotal. “We are committed to playing an active role in the community and we are proud to have supported the bid by donating Pivotal CRM software and technical expertise to the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation. It is another great example of how Pivotal’s software helps organizations come together in a unified and highly collaborative way to serve customers.”
As a pillar in the Vancouver technology community and a global leader in customer relationship management software, Pivotal Corporation is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen. With its head office located in downtown Vancouver, Pivotal’s British Columbian employees have joined their colleagues around the world in wholeheartedly thanking the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation, the citizens of Vancouver and Whistler, and all the corporate supporters in making Vancouver’s bid a success. Pivotal will continue to play an active role over the next seven years, and looks forward to working with the Vancouver Organizing Committee as Vancouver and Whistler prepare to host the world.
