Synergis Software to Show Adept Certified Gold PDM Software at SolidWorks World 2008

Companies Using Adept Realize Huge Productivity Gains

QUAKERTOWN, PA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - Synergis Software, a SolidWorks® Gold Certified Partner since 2003, will be demonstrating Adept Enterprise Product Data Management (PDM) software at SolidWorks World 2008 (January 20-23 in San Diego, CA). Chris Fabri, senior product specialist, will be delivering a live presentation on "Simple, Powerful PDM for SolidWorks" on Wednesday, January 23 at 1:00pm PST, in the Certified Partner Theatre. Synergis Software's top application engineers and executives will be in the exhibit area (booth #418) to talk to SolidWorks Community members about the latest Adept developments.

Progressive companies who use Adept PDM to manage, control and share their SolidWorks designs and business information have realized huge benefits and productivity gains.

NASA Ames Research Center's Unitary Wind Tunnels in Mountain View, California, a leader in aeronautics and aerospace wind tunnel testing, uses Adept to improve efficiency and management of their SolidWorks design and engineering documents. According to Bill Newby, a Configuration Management (CM)/CAD specialist, "As part of engineering support, one of my main CM functions is to maintain the engineering drawings and documents for equipment and structures that are part of the wind tunnels, including model support stings and adapters, and motor fan blades and shrouds. We test scaled-down models of jet fighters like the F18; and research spacecraft like the Space Shuttle."

"Our main business objectives in implementing a data management system were time, cost and accessibility," said Newby. "With Adept, we can search for documents, and pull them up in seconds. Now our drawings are available right from our desktop. We type in a word and boom -- the drawing or drawings we're looking for come right up."

Guntert & Zimmerman Construction Division, Inc. (G&Z), a pioneer in innovative equipment for the concrete highway, airport and canal construction industry, uses Adept to increase overall productivity and facilitate collaborative engineering. "We required a data management solution that could handle both AutoCAD® and SolidWorks information," said Jerry Dahlinger, vice president of Engineering, G&Z. "Adept allows us to search for a part and see the relationships between a SolidWorks assembly and its AutoCAD components. That way we can use our legacy information and still use new 3D tools."

"We couldn't go on using SolidWorks without a data management system that supported its interdependent file structure," added Dahlinger. "We had lots of problems when we had several SolidWorks users working on the same design project, with different overlapping areas of the machine. The result was that our productivity was very low and it became a crisis."

inTEST Corporation, a New Jersey-based firm with offices in North America and Europe, uses Adept to organize, manage, share and control its 75,000 SolidWorks files in the design and manufacture of its products that test integrated circuits and wafer products from semiconductor manufacturing customers such as Intel® and Sony®.

"Before Adept, there were millions of paper copies in the company and no way to manage them," said Christopher Ny, network administrator, inTEST Corporation. "We rely on Adept's integration with SolidWorks to find parts quickly, as opposed to going through a folder full of miscellaneous files. It's also invaluable for searching and checking the status of documents -- so we know if a document was worked on and if it's been approved."
