Cimmetry's AutoVue Supports Livelink CADManager

Paris, France — 13 May 2003 — Cimmetry Systems, the global leader in Visualization and Collaboration solutions for the A/E/C, Engineering, Manufacturing and Electronics markets, today announced that AutoVue integrates seamlessly with Livelink CADManager, a new solution announced by Open Text this week to provide integrated collaboration and knowledge management to CAD applications.

With AutoVue, users can view and markup AutoCAD documents directly from within their Livelink repository, with full access to all XREFS and reference files managed by CADManager. Users can also hold real-time collaborative review sessions on those same documents using Open Text’s MeetingZone™ solution. AutoVue is available as a thin-client, server based solution and supports all versions of AutoCAD, including the newly released AutoCAD 2004.

"Cimmetry Systems has been an invaluable partner as we offer more document management and collaboration solutions to the engineering community," said Chris Vassalotti, business development manager at Open Text. "They consistently deliver the format support, visualization tools, and collaboration capabilities our users require to get the most out of our solutions. At Open Text, we know we can depend on them to support all our latest products in a timely and comprehensive manner."

"Livelink CADManager enables engineering departments to contribute to the corporate document management system, and thus fully leverage the knowledge their data contains," said Steven Birnam, business development manager at Cimmetry Systems. "Livelink CADManager allows AutoCAD users to save their documents directly to the Livelink repository, and manages all associated relationships and external references. Livelink users can then view those documents using AutoVue, mark them up, and save their feedback back into the repository."

Livelink CADManager for AutoCAD provides a structure in the Livelink repository to manage complex relationships between CAD drawings. Livelink CADManager for AutoCAD provides seamless access to the Livelink repository directly from the AutoCAD menus, simplifying use of the system for engineers.
