MicroStrain Wins Omnify Software 2009 Customer Innovation Award

Honored for Enhancing Design and Manufacturing Processes

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - Omnify Software, a leading provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software for electronic, medical, mechanical, and defense manufacturers, today announced that Michael Jewett, production manager for MicroStrain, was the recipient of the 2009 Omnify Software Customer Innovation Award presented during Omnify's 2009 customer conference. MicroStrain produces smart, wireless, microminiature displacement, orientation and strain sensors.

The Omnify Software Customer Innovation Award honors a customer that has demonstrated a truly innovative use of the Omnify PLM system. Mr. Jewett was instrumental in implementing the Omnify solution to enhance and enforce business processes as well as develop advanced integrations with MicroStrain's engineering design environments, Altium® and Autocad®, and their Made 2 Manage® ERP system. The integrated process established by Mr. Jewett with the implementation of Omnify Empower PLM has resulted in a decrease of MicroStrain's Bill of Material (BOM) processing time from two to three days to just minutes. MicroStrain engineers can access approved parts stored in Omnify directly from Altium and/or Autocad. The BOMs generated from the engineering systems are imported into Omnify for approval and the released BOM data is sent directly to Made2Manage for a completely automated and streamlined process.

"The implementation of Omnify has resulted in a completely integrated product development and production process," said Michael Jewett, production manager for MicroStrain. "Omnify enforced our business rules much more consistently than was possible with the previous manual process."

"We feel that customers should be recognized for their ability to go above and beyond in utilizing Omnify to improve their product development processes," stated Jack Rowntree, chief operating officer for Omnify Software. "Mr. Jewett has certainly earned this recognition due to his in-depth product knowledge and ability to maximize the use of Omnify PLM at MicroStrain."
