Clarizen Project Management Solution Comes to Life With DesignShare

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - Actify Inc., the global leader in digital design communication solutions, with over 500 discrete manufacturing companies as customers and 10,000 licenses on active maintenance, today announced its partnership with San Mateo-based Clarizen, a leading vendor of on-demand collaborative project management software, to add their web-based project management solution with Actify's DesignShare collaboration solution, increasing the value of both products to end users.

"We are very excited to be expanding the reach of our solution through Actify's DesignShare," said Eran Aloni, VP of Product Marketing of Clarizen. "When we first met with Actify, it was obvious that the two solutions were a good fit for each other, the Clarizen solution providing global project management and DesignShare enabling global design data collaboration. Each compliments the other and brings to the end-user increased collaboration capabilities."

Clarizen offers a dynamic project management solution, allowing companies to manage multiple projects and resources through a single, web-based solution. Businesses can now stay on track with project status always being up-to-date and with interactive email alerts and notifications. When added to Actify's DesignShare, a collaboration solution based on Microsoft's SharePoint platform, users can not only manage projects effectively, but can also have access to all project-related documents, including 3D and 2D CAD files. DesignShare enables users to share, view, markup and collaborate on Actify's .3D files, as well as upload Native CAD files and other product related documents.

"I am certain that this partnership will allow our customers to take their businesses to the next level by utilizing the unique collaborative advantages of Clarizen's project management solution," said Chris Jones, President of Actify.
