SALT LAKE CITY, USA - September 20, 2012 - MasterControl Inc. today announces its inclusion in Software Magazine’s Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers, now in its 30th year.

MasterControl Inc. was ranked 408, with software revenue of $22.7 million. This is the fourth year the company has been featured in the Software 500.

"The 2012 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was again healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $643.6 billion worldwide for 2011, representing approximately 17 percent growth from the previous year's list," says John P. Desmond, editor, Software Magazine.

"The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners," says Desmond. "It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software."

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2011. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by Rockport Custom Publishing, LLC. and posted at www.softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
