FISHER/UNITECH and Seemage Form Strategic Partnership

TROY, Mich. & CONCORD, Mass.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 31, 2007— FISHER/UNITECH, a leading engineering technologies firm serving the Midwest, and Seemage, the technological leader in creating rich deliverables directly from digital product definitions, today announced a strategic business partnership. Seemage, which was recently acquired by Dassault Systemes as part of its 3DVIA brand, is a revolutionary desktop system for reusing SolidWorks models and other digital product data to rapidly produce product deliverables. With Seemage, service and maintenance, assembly and disassembly procedures, technical illustrations, marketing materials and more can be created by users simply and accurately. FISHER/UNITECH has been appointed as a value-added reseller and systems integrator for Seemage.

"The discrete manufacturing market needs to share part and assembly information across the enterprise," said Charles Hess, president of FISHER/UNITECH. "The Seemage solution gives non-engineering staff the tools to create the product deliverables they require with no knowledge of a CAD system. We are anxious to bring the Seemage solution to the market because of the unique features and value proposition it delivers."

Seemage offers an open XML-based architecture so design data associated with a part or assembly can easily be combined in Seemage with information from any other system. For example, users can easily import information like manufacturing bills-of-materials from ERP systems. No matter where the data originates, Seemage retains its associativity with the original information, providing value and savings by eliminating expensive last minute documentation changes.

Users across the business can create documentation such as marketing materials, training documentation, parts catalogs and assembly instructions even before design and engineering is complete, and then simply update their deliverables when needed. Seemage is proven technology that works in complex design and manufacturing environments. Companies like Volvo, Delphi, John Deere, Faurecia, Teradyne, Renault and Liebherr Aerospace have all experienced release-to-market and ROI improvements with Seemage.

Seemage integrates with SolidWorks enabling users to deploy Seemage as their content authoring solution for creating product deliverables. Designers can create Seemage files directly in SolidWorks, enabling productivity and data leveraging downstream.

While Seemage is integrated with SolidWorks, it works with all major native CAD formats including CATIA v4 and v5, Pro/ENGINEER, Parasolid, UG NX, ACIS, STEP, IGES and VDA/FS. The various sections of a model such as geometry, assembly structure and properties are stored with a high compression ratio resulting in small files for non-technical users to work with.

FISHER/UNITECH has appointed a 3DVIA product manager, Ken MacKool, who will host two Seemage webcasts on November 8 and December 4, 2007. To learn more or to register, visit
