SINGAPORE and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire -06/26/12)- ServiceSource® (SREV), the global leader in Service Revenue Management, today announced that GE Healthcare (GE) has expanded its partnership with ServiceSource in Asia-Pacific to drive renewal of recurring service contracts for both small and large scale medical equipment.
