Actify's Digital Design Communication Solution Used to Deliver Innovative CO2 Reduction Technology

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 22, 2008 -- Actify Inc., the global leader in digital design communication solutions, with over 500 discrete manufacturing companies as customers and 8,000 licenses on active maintenance, is pleased to be the digital design communication solution of choice for Connaught Engineering Ltd, whose unique HYBRID+ retro-fit diesel hybrid technology is being delivered to a number of UK blue chip companies including Tesco's fleet of home delivery vehicles, in an effort to further their environmental consciousness. The HYBRID+ has a unique, light-weight design and reduces CO2 emissions by an average 15% across an average fleet usage profile, as well as reducing fuel usage by an equal amount.

"When developing a product such as ours the rate of change and development is rapid, so we use Actify's products to share all our design files quickly and easily with our suppliers," said Mr. Tony Martindale, CEO of Connaught Engineering Ltd. "The ability to communicate design changes instantly with them is essential to our business, and allows us to deliver high quality products to customers like Tesco."

Connaught Engineering Ltd is compromised of many specialized design engineers who have worked together to create this hybrid technology (HYBRID+), but rely on the specialist skills of the suppliers when it comes to production. Having suppliers worldwide, Connaught needed to share design files and be able to collaborate on changes in a rapid, efficient but controlled manner. In using Actify's suite of products, they have been able to share design files, of any format, with suppliers without the need for expensive investment by the supply chain CAD seats. This enables their suppliers to view, measure, analyze and mark-up these files and feedback the findings to the relevant Connaught engineer. The results have been seamless communication on the production designs, saving them costs on tooling, reducing time to production and increased productivity.
