FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 --Right Hemisphere®, the leading provider of visual product communication and collaboration solutions, today welcomed Virtual Services, Inc. into its channel operations to help respond to increasing demand and opportunity for Right Hemisphere's solutions in North America.

"Virtual Services has over 450 customers and is well known in the automotive and aerospace industries. With their expertise, they are an ideal partner for any manufacturer looking to streamline its supply chain collaboration capabilities," said Randy Ochs, vice president of strategic alliances and channel development at Right Hemisphere. "Right Hemisphere is very pleased to welcome this highly skilled team of professionals into its channel program."

Virtual Services is a leading supplier and implementer of mission critical PLM solutions to automotive, aerospace and defense companies. The company is particularly adept at helping manufacturers achieve supply chain synchronization. Virtual Services offers its own solution, called LEaP (Linked, Enabled and Proficient). LEaP helps manufacturers improve their product quality while reducing time and cost requirements by integrating suppliers into the manufacturers' product development, design, and manufacturing environments.

"Using a combination of our LEaP solution and Right Hemisphere's Deep Server software, we can rapidly enable manufacturers to integrate suppliers into their product design, development and manufacturing processes without forcing them to use one set of CAD or PLM tools," said Mike Fecek, vice president of sales at Virtual Services. "Right Hemisphere's software is a neutral visual communication hub between tier one, two, and three suppliers, so everyone can work with the tools they are most comfortable with and still securely share data and collaborate effectively. Deep Server is a critical enhancement to our supplier collaboration solution that will enable manufacturers and suppliers to use product graphics to communicate and collaborate both within and across their extended enterprises."
