Keith Neilson, CEO of Craneware, commented, "The U.S. healthcare system is currently undergoing an unprecedented level of change and public scrutiny. This combined with the global economic downturn means healthcare organizations are experiencing extraordinary levels of fiscal and legislative pressure. Craneware continues to invest in the development and deployment of software to help manage these pressures and we believe that our market leading position and reputation within the industry, combined with our strong business fundamentals, leaves us well positioned to serve this growing demand.

"The signing of a significant value-added reseller agreement with McKesson Corporation, the world's largest healthcare services company, at the beginning of this new fiscal year has given us a strong start. The agreement sees McKesson integrate Craneware's Chargemster Toolkit(R) software with their next generation hospital information system (HIS), Horizon Enyterprise Revenue Management(TM) as part of their ongoing legacy system replacement and upgrading program. This new agreement, combined with a growing Craneware sales pipeline and the launch of further products by the end of the current year, gives us confidence we are on track to continue our history of significant growth in the year ahead."
