November 8, 2006

Glastonbury, CT November 13, 2006 –, Shoptech Software, the leading software provider of shop management software in North America and Cimmetry Systems, an Agile Software company and global leader in Collaborative Visualization solutions, today announced a new Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partnership that strengthens the companies long-standing relationship. AutoVue, Desktop Edition products, will be sold as part of the Shoptech E2 Shop System.

By doing so, Cimmetry and Shoptech deliver CAD data visualization and markup to every shop floor workstation, enabling a digital method of accessing and communicating information throughout the manufacturing process. Users can instantly and reliably view and annotate any supported document type, including 2D CAD drawings and Office documents, without undergoing costly and error-prone conversions or purchasing expensive engineering software applications.

“Efficient and productive shop management requires solutions to help users quickly and easily retrieve information and data directly from the shop floor. To do so, Shoptech is committed to using the latest and most efficient solutions in the software industry,” said Phil M. Hutchinson, President and CEO of Shoptech Software. “AutoVue, the leader in the document viewing industry, was a logical choice for our E2 Shop System for viewing and printing attachments such as drawings, inspection sheets and pictures.”

“We are excited about this new ISV partnership with Shoptech, whose featured solution meets the specific needs of shop floor management and control.” said Paul Giaconia, President of Cimmetry. “By making native document visualization available for manufacturing operations, AutoVue addresses the problem of cost-effectively and instantly accessing valuable information generated in a variety of file formats directly from the shop floor or users’ front office.”
