AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Waggener Edstrom Inc., a high-tech public relations agency, today announced that it is now providing public relations services to Alibre Inc., a Richardson, Texas-based company. Alibre offers Alibre Design, the only low-cost lightweight mechanical design and data-sharing application, built for the Internet with a peer-to-peer architecture. A team in Waggener Edstrom's Austin office now works with Alibre to raise awareness for the application and its benefits for heavy equipment manufacturers and their supply-chain partners.
"Alibre Design is perfectly in step with the times: It increases productivity and quality while reducing costs by streamlining the product design process for global manufacturers," said Claudia Husemann, senior vice president at Waggener Edstrom.

"We selected Waggener Edstrom because of the agency's proven ability to craft and execute creative and compelling public relations programs," said Greg Milliken, vice president of marketing at Alibre. "We needed WaggEd to hit the ground running since we were mounting an aggressive marketing campaign for Alibre Design around the launch of Windows XP. So we felt WaggEd's deep experience with software launches would lend a critical advantage."
