Taps Omnify for software's ability to integrate with existing systems, ease-of-use

Wilmington, MA — October 17, 2005 — Liquid Computing, an Ottawa, Canada and Los Altos, Calif.a-based company developing a computing server, has implemented Omnify product lifecycle management (PLM) to provide collaboration, reduce development cycles and manage environmental compliance data for its product design and development.

After closely researching PLM vendors, it selected Omnify Software due to its affordable price, a short implementation time of two days, a minimal learning curve for users and scalability to grow as Liquid Computing grows.

Equally important, Liquid Computing said, was Omnify's ability to integrate with the company's engineering design environment, Cadence Concept. The company is also using Omnify to track, store and report Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance information to meet requirements for lead free directives.

"Prior to our introduction to Omnify Software, we were considering a free offer from a larger vendor," stated Kevin Stone, vice president of Operations at Liquid Computing. "After viewing Omnify's capabilities it was apparent that we needed to reconsider our selection. Omnify supported our integration requirements, offered more useful features, and ultimately cost less than the competitive (free) product."

Chuck Cimalore, chief technology officer for Omnify Software, said his company is looking forward to have a growing company like Liquid Computing as a customer. "We are meeting more and more manufacturers like Liquid Computing who have experience with and recognize the value of a PLM system," he commented.
