Fabric7 Systems Chooses Omnify Software to Streamline Product Development

PLM Solution Is Driving Accelerated New Product Introduction and Market Response Time for Industry-Leading Enterprise Server Company

ANDOVER, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 17, 2006 -- Omnify Software, a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software for electronic, medical, mechanical, and defense manufacturers, today announced that Fabric7 Systems, a Silicon Valley developer of enterprise servers for data centers, has chosen its software to streamline processes in the design and development of existing and new products.

"As an industry-leading enterprise server company, we needed a system to instill a discipline for a single point of entry for engineering releases and product builds across both our internal and external sites," said Wayne Firsty, Fabric7 Vice President of Manufacturing Operations. "Since implementing Omnify, Fabric7 has been able to develop and deliver more products in a timely fashion and grow sales without having to make any additions to personnel in hardware development or manufacturing operations," he added.

Founded in 2005, Fabric7 designs and builds enterprise servers that unify compute and network services into a dynamic fabric of resources that can be deployed and scaled on demand to meet changing business needs, providing flexibility in provisioning, efficiency in resource utilization and management simplicity.

With an overwhelming workload and the need to simplify communications with its Contract Manufacturer (CM), Fabric7 looked to Omnify to ensure the CM had access to accurate product information and help speed New Product Introduction (NPI) cycles. Time and resource constraints demanded an easy-to-use system that was quick to implement and was based on the Microsoft SQL Server platform for simple and cost-effective maintenance.

Fabric7 has been utilizing Omnify software for more than a year. Omnify has provided Fabric7 with an affordable solution that delivers all of the Bill of Material (BOM), engineering change and document management features they require for their complex hardware design along with easy and secure access for internal and external teams.

"Helping emerging companies like Fabric7 fulfill their immediate product development needs is our focus at Omnify," said Chuck Cimalore, Omnify CTO. "We deliver a straightforward solution that is scalable to support our customers at every stage of their growth."
