  NEW YORK, NY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Nov 27
(Marketwire) -- 
Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADVS), a leading provider of software and
services for the global investment management industry, and IntraLinks(R)
(NYSE: IL), a leading, global technology provider of inter-enterprise
content management and collaboration solutions, today announced that the
two companies have worked together to create an interface between Tamale
RMS(R) and IntraLinks. The new interface offers enhanced information
automation and saves multi-manager organizations tremendous time with
their research and due diligence processes.

    Advent's Tamale RMS(R) is the only RMS to offer the IntraLinks service to
its multi-manager clients. The robust interface:


--  Enables automatic transfer of monthly documents from hedge fund and
    private equity managers to Tamale RMS(R), categorized according to
    the client's preferences,
--  Eliminates multiple extra steps and manual data entry to add the
    necessary data into a single system of record for research (Tamale
    RMS(R)), and
--  Automates due diligence processes with Tamale RMS(R) audit
    reporting to allow investment managers to focus on higher value-added
    work, such as increasing returns for their investors.

    

Over 100,000 global limited partners, including endowments,
foundations, funds of funds and other investor organizations, use
IntraLinks to download private equity and hedge fund monthly updates from
over 500 alternative asset firms, such as private equity and hedge fund
managers. In addition, nearly all of Advent's multi-manager clients that
have a private equity or alternatives arm already have an existing
relationship with IntraLinks to download their monthly letters,
statements, audited financials and marketing materials. With this new
offering, managers can now streamline the process of attaining data from
disparate hedge fund and private equity managers via IntraLinks, and
deposit and categorize them directly into Tamale RMS(R).

    "As a client of both Advent and IntraLinks, we were excited to learn
about the announcement -- the relationship signifies the two companies'
commitment to support our team's ability to make well-informed and timely
decisions," said Elizabeth Cohen, Investment Operations, Spider
Management Company, LLC of the University of Richmond.

    "Advent is committed to its strategic data relationships to help our
clients succeed in their businesses and achieve their goals," said Chris
Momsen, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Product Solution
Strategy. "Advent is taking significant steps to stay ahead of the
industry by offering even more value to clients. Our commitment to
providing additional benefits via relationships with top solution and
service providers is a testament to our focus on helping our clients make
better-informed decisions enabling them to provide excellent client
service, which leads to the growth of their businesses."

    "We are excited by our agreement with Advent," said Rainer Gawlick, Chief
Marketing Officer at IntraLinks. "The interface between IntraLinks and
Tamale is another demonstration of IntraLinks' commitment to serving the
investment management industry. We view this relationship as a key
element in providing fund managers and their investors with best-of-breed
communication and information management tools."
