Fremont, CA — August 7, 2006 — Right Hemisphere®, the leading provider of Product Graphics Management (PGM) software, today announced it has been named one of the Hottest Companies of 2006 by Start-IT magazine, a leading trade publication serving manufacturers. Right Hemisphere ascended from Start-IT’s 2005 list of companies to “Keep An Eye On” to the top distinction of “Hot” this year.
“Right Hemisphere’s software creates operational efficiencies in areas previously unaddressed. The software is innovative and more importantly it helps streamline a number of product communication business processes by automating the delivery of 2D and 3D graphics directly from 3D CAD assets,” said John Buell, editor-in-chief of Start-IT. “Right Hemisphere’s ongoing collaboration with Adobe is also significant as it has yielded software that can generate 3D PDFs with 3D models, stepped assembly and disassembly procedures, animations, or PMI data for viewing, sharing, and annotating. These capabilities could greatly enhance both the quality and effectiveness of manufacturers’ communications with their supply chains and customers.”
In its ninth year, the Start-IT Hottest Companies Awards recognize software and hardware vendors that have developed innovative applications of products and services for the manufacturing industry. The candidates were judged by the magazine’s editorial staff on the basis of uniqueness of product or service offering; growth comparing 2005, 2004, and 2003 revenues; other awards and honors received; significant client wins in 2005; and biggest accomplishments or hurdles overcome in 2005.
In its 2006 fiscal year, Right Hemisphere achieved over 90% year over year growth in bookings. In addition to record bookings, the company licensed its 3D PGM technology to Adobe Systems Incorporated for inclusion in the groundbreaking Adobe® Acrobat® 3D software. Right Hemisphere introduced new versions of virtually every product in its portfolio in fiscal year 2006, as well as expanded its customer base, channel, technology partnerships, internal staff, and product line to meet growing PGM demand. The company was also recently honored with a 2006 Microsoft Global Export Potential Award (MGEPA) and a Consensus Software Award (CSA). Both awards applied similar base criteria of software innovation, performance, and potential.
Leading manufacturers such as DaimlerChrysler, Sikorsky Aircraft, Bell Helicopter, and Halliburton have deployed Right Hemispheres flagship “Deep Server” enterprise PGM software. Deep Server is implemented to quickly automate graphics transformation and authoring, and to optimize the graphics publishing processes for product communications and support offerings.
