Product Sight Corporation Acquires Findview Enterprise Search Engine for Engineering and Manufacturing Content

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 16, 2003--Product Sight Corporation, an innovator of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, announced their acquisition of the assets of Maxim I/T, Inc., a venture backed digital asset retrieval company.

The acquisition expands Product Sight's SyncroSpec family of web-based quality and product lifecycle management applications. Product Sight will continue to support FindView customers and will continue the development of FindView's unique search engine capabilities for engineering and manufacturing content. Senior members of the Maxim I/T team have joined Product Sight to assure a smooth and uninterrupted transition for FindView customers.

"We believe this acquisition will prove to be a milestone for the entire product lifecycle management market as the combination of the FindView search engine's technology with SyncroSpec's focused product lifecycle applications eliminates significant data migration obstacles that have stood in the way of broader industry adoption," stated Lloyd Fields, CEO of Maxim I/T. "Until now companies have been forced to re-master large amounts of data if they wanted to better leverage their technical product information."

Founded in 1996, Maxim I/T has been an innovative software company with an unparalleled digital asset retrieval solution for the product life cycle management (PLM) market. With its groundbreaking software product, FindView, Maxim I/T revolutionized the way companies search and use technical product data from anywhere on their enterprise network, regardless of the authoring application. Arctic Cat, Delphi Automotive, TRW, and the United States Air Force are among the FindView customers that have leveraged their legacy design and manufacturing data in ways never before possible.

"We are thrilled about adding FindView customers, technology, and talent into the Product Sight family," said Bruce Winegarden, Product Sight CEO.

The addition of these world class organizations more than doubles the customer base, who have proven success using Product Sight's technical data management solutions."
