Emerson Power Transmission Implements Framework Technologies' ActiveProduct(TM) to Gain Competitive Advantage

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Framework Technologies, the leader in solutions that increase product introduction success, today announced that Emerson Power Transmission Corp. (EPT), a division of Emerson (NYSE: EMR), has successfully implemented its ActiveProject® software, which is part of Framework's ActiveProduct(TM) solution suite. The Framework solution delivers product introduction decision support to all levels of an organization's distributed product introduction team. EPT is using the ActiveProject module to coordinate multiple projects, foster innovation and enhance product introduction results, which will reduce development costs and increase new product revenues.

Framework's ActiveProject is one of a select group of technologies that Emerson has chosen to standardize on. As a result of this selection, other Emerson divisions are expected to evaluate the solution within the next six months.

"Framework's solution will foster greater collaboration among our internal development teams and outside partners-regardless of their geographic location-by allowing everyone to have access to the same information at the same time," said Jim Porter, vice president of engineering for EPT. "As a result, we will be able to work faster and smarter in creating the right solutions for our customers."

Framework agrees that the partnership will be mutually beneficial: "Emerson adopts only best-in-class, integrated IT projects, and Framework is proud to be included among this select group," said Donald Tomkinson, president and CEO of Framework Technologies. "This engagement demonstrates the crucial role our solution is playing to enable market-leading companies to meet time-to-market goals in a quickly changing, highly competitive market and achieve newfound product success."

Driving Results through Focus on Product Introduction

Framework's flagship product, ActiveProject, along with its two modules, ActiveProcess(TM) and ActivePortfolio(TM) make up the ActiveProduct solution suite. ActiveProduct is designed to transform the product introduction process by optimizing the product portfolio, compressing the introduction process and synchronizing development team members. The solution is differentiated by its ability to extract key information generated by disperse product introduction team members via ActiveProject, and bubble up this information to the executives charged with managing the growth and risk of the product portfolio.

EPT, a leading producer of power transmission drives, components and bearings for markets including the industrial, paving, material handling, food/beverage and aerospace markets, is using ActiveProject to unite its extended product development teams through secure, online workspaces that serve as the central location for all information associated with each product under development. All of EPT's internal product development teams, as well as outsourced partners, can access Web-based project workspaces created with ActiveProject. These sites serve as the communications platform on which to share and view files in their native applications and to communicate across geographic boundaries.

"After thorough review, we determined that Framework Technologies provides the best solution. We were impressed by the solution's quick implementation, ease of use and non-intrusive approach," said Randall Ledford, Emerson Chief Technology Officer.
