First Trace Releases Kinnosa 4.2 for Engineering Document Management

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - First Trace, Inc. has announced the release of Kinnosa 4.2 Engineering Document Management (EDM) software. Kinnosa's flexible service-oriented architecture (SOA) has been extended with the release of version 4.2 to include support and direct integration for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, AutoCAD 2010, SolidWorks 2010 and MicroStation V8i Select 1. An advanced Active Directory adapter provides secure single sign on (SSO) capabilities for fast implementation. Kinnosa 4.2 provides integration to MS Office document properties to dynamically link business data to Office documents and the open Kinnosa repository.

First Trace developed Kinnosa to address the complex requirements of engineering to effectively manage CAD drawings, engineering files and standard office documents in a real-time environment. The additional support for the 2010 versions of the most popular CAD tools means Kinnosa now directly integrates with AutoCAD 2007 - 2010, SolidWorks 2007 - 2010 and MicroStation V8 - V8i Select 1.

By enabling the ability to dynamically link business data to Office documents and the open Kinnosa repository, users can make business decisions based on data in documents without having to open them. Any changes a user makes to data are automatically reflected in the document and the Kinnosa repository, regardless of where you make the change.

Kinnosa's SOA has been extended with the release of version 4.2 to allow for more user choices and greater system flexibility. The extended SOA allows Kinnosa to be easily configured by system administrators with improved user management capabilities and greater granularity with role-based authorizations. The addition of an advanced Active Directory adapter provides for secure single sign on.
