FISHER/UNITECH Finds Success With PDMWorks Enterprise

TROY, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 26, 2006— FISHER/UNITECH, a leading engineering technologies firm serving the Midwest, today announced it has implemented several product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions this year. PLM is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product, from its conception, through design and manufacturing, service and disposal. FISHER/UNITECH's new PLM clients include Bowe Bell + Howell Scanners, LLC, Brush Wellman Inc., Merkle-Korff Industries, Pacific Bearing Corp., Pridgeon & Clay, Spartan Motors, Wooster Brush Company and The Holland Group.

Behind FISHER/UNITECH's success is a new generation of PLM software that enables complex product data management from inside the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Explorer interface. This has eliminated difficulties with end-user acceptability, and brings a new level of potential collaboration on critical product data across the enterprise. PDMWorks Enterprise, formerly Conisio(R), has brought these capabilities to the market and propelled FISHER/UNITECH's clients to success with PLM.

PDMWorks Enterprise, a product of SolidWorks Corporation, helps organizations manage and share product data more effectively and automate workflow to allow better collaboration from engineering to the shop floor, resulting in improved products, lower costs, and faster time to market. SolidWorks Corporation acquired GCS Scandinavia AB of Sweden, developers of Conisio, on May 4, 2006. FISHER/UNITECH has been a reseller of Conisio in North America for over three years and a SolidWorks reseller for nearly ten years.

"We are very pleased with our success this year in the PLM market," said Charles Hess, president of FISHER/UNITECH. "Ten years experience as a PLM solution provider and three years selling PDMWorks Enterprise has positioned us as experts in product lifecycle management. This year's success is a testament to our dedication to process improvement technology and our customers are responding. Integrated data management as it relates to the product development process is and will continue to be the hallmark of our company."

In addition to a decade of PLM implementation experience, FISHER/UNITECH shares a strategic alliance with Razorleaf Corporation, based in Stow, Ohio. Since 2000, Razorleaf has specialized in needs analysis, implementation, training and support of PLM solutions for companies across a wide range of industries. Razorleaf is a services-only firm, partnering exclusively with FISHER/UNITECH in their markets.

Furthering its commitment to PLM, FISHER/UNITECH expanded its management team in December 2005, with the appointment of Ken MacKool as PLM Product Manager. Ken is responsible for sales and marketing activities, increasing revenue, growing partnerships and building upon the company's PLM success. Ken has over 20 years experience selling engineering and manufacturing software, and has worked for General Motors and IBM. Ken hosts monthly webcasts on PDMWorks Enterprise and ENOVIA SmarTeam, a Dassault Systemes PLM solution. For more information, please visit FISHER/UNITECH's website at
