KEL and Proficiency Translating Legacy CAD for Large Japanese Automobile Manufacturer

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 9, 2008— Proficiency, the leading developer of solutions for Product Knowledge Integration and CAD interoperability today announced that it has entered a partnership with Kanematsu Electronics Ltd. (KEL), a leading IT provider based in Tokyo, to translate legacy CAD models for a large Japanese automobile manufacturer.

The work will be performed by KEL’s service team using Proficiency’s proven patented technology solutions of Collaboration GatewayTM and Completion Wizard TM. Up to 95% of the translation can be automated with the final portion being completed using an interactive guided process that makes sure that corporate standards are maintained. This process was thoroughly tested and found superior to other alternatives in both quality and cost, including re-mastering through offshore engineering services.

This new process allows the automobile manufacturer's engineers to spend time on innovation and new products rather than translating legacy data or managing offshore resources that are inefficient and costly when considering the overall time and inaccuracies from free form human re-mastering.

“We strive to respond to the rapid changes in the market and the needs of our clients,” said Yukihiro Kawana, Director, Sales Unit (Div 2 & Div 4) of KEL. “Proficiency’s solutions are state of the art in CAD interoperability and allow us to deliver a much needed engineering service in the Japan marketplace.”

“We are pleased to have a partner like KEL who is recognized for providing superior IT services to the Japanese market,” said Alex Shapira, President and CEO of Proficiency. “We look forward to partnering with KEL on other projects to expand our market reach in the area.”
