Actify Enhances Award Winning SpinFire CAD Visualization Solution; SpinFire Professional 2003 Features User Defined Coordinate Systems

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 5, 2003--Actify, the leader in client-server design visualization and collaboration solutions for the high tech, industrial automation and discrete manufacturing industries, today announced new enhancements to its award winning SpinFire CAD Visualization Solution. With the enhancements made to SpinFire Professional 2003 it is now the only CAD Visualization solution in its class with user-defined coordinate systems. This new feature increases user productivity by allowing easier measurement of parts and assemblies, while providing faster, more expedient capability to complete projects.

SpinFire Professional 2003 enables knowledge workers to visualize the CAD files they need without the expense of owning and maintaining multiple CAD systems. The award winning SpinFire Professional provides support for all the major CAD systems and a full suite of mark-up and dimensioning tools. SpinFire Professional accelerates the process for estimating, quoting, design, shop floor viewing and quality control review.

Newly appointed Actify President and CEO Randy Ochs pointed out that this new SpinFire release is the next evolutionary step in Actify's mission to provide its customers with unique and valuable software to enable them to perform their jobs more easily and efficiently. Ochs said, "We will remain the leader in design visualization and collaboration solutions because we have the infrastructure in place to anticipate the needs of our customers and the ability to quickly deliver new functionality and quality service through a dedicated and focused worldwide value-added reseller channel."

"The new functionality in Actify's SpinFire Professional 2003 will allow us to do analysis faster which will in turn get our designs and products to market faster," said Tibor Toreki, vice president of Advanced Technology for Delta Tooling. "This will not only aid our bottom line but will help us more quickly meet the needs of our customers." He further says, "Actify seems to be widening their lead in viewing technology even further. The new stylistic interface is both pleasing to the eye and extremely intuitive, accomplishing what has rarely been done in software; adding increased functionality while reducing user complexity. This powerful combination means that we'll be able to span across even more levels of business and in turn get our products to market even faster and with higher quality."
