Right Hemisphere Signs Agreements With Casolute and IPEQ to Support European Manufacturers

Companies Team Up to Address Fast-Growing Opportunities for Advanced 3D Publishing Solutions in Europe

FRANKFURT, GERMANY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 30, 2006 -- With the new European headquarters established in Munich earlier this year, Right Hemisphere further expanded its presence overseas with the announcement today of two new European VAR/SI partners: Casolute GmbH and IPEQ GmbH. The leading provider of Product Graphics Management (PGM) software, Right Hemisphere, signed agreements with these companies to answer growing demand and opportunities for its 2D and 3D product communications solutions throughout Europe. Right Hemisphere will work with its new partners, as well as its existing partner PROSTEP AG, to demonstrate, deploy, and customize PGM solutions. By taking advantage of manufacturers' existing 3D CAD assets and new rich, interactive 3D PDF capabilities, Right Hemisphere's solutions offer more efficient and effective ways to produce technical documentation, to engage in supplier collaboration, and to communicate about complex products.

"We see tremendous opportunity for automated 2D and 3D product communications solutions in Europe, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries supporting manufacturers and their supply chains," said Right Hemisphere's Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Channel Development, Randy Ochs. "Casolute and IPEQ each have specific areas of expertise and knowledge of European manufacturing companies. Combining our knowledge, core competencies, and joint sales and support staffs will allow us to rapidly grow our market share and presence throughout Europe."

Casolute GmbH is a Right Hemisphere value-added reseller (VAR) and systems integrator (SI) with specialized expertise in the automotive industry. The company is also especially proficient in implementing technical documentation solutions and in all aspects of product lifecycle process optimizations. The company will sell, implement, and provide the primary line of support for Right Hemisphere's software to manufacturers in Central and Western Germany, and in Spain.

"We have made our biggest contributions to customer competitiveness through automation solutions," said Casolute GmbH Manager of Business Development Michael Häfele. "We immediately recognized the efficiencies Right Hemisphere's automated 2D and 3D publishing solutions could bring to our manufacturing clients to make them even more competitive. We're excited to begin showing our clients how they can further streamline some of their key business processes."

Already an Adobe Systems GmbH Enterprise Solution Partner for Adobe® Acrobat® 3D, Adobe® LiveCycle® and Breeze products, IPEQ GmbH has particular expertise in delivering 3D PDF workflows in combination with its own 3D Groupware communication solution to enterprise customers in engineering, production, and service. As a Right Hemisphere VAR/SI, IPEQ will focus on the delivery of 3D PDF workflow and communication solutions to manufacturers in Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.

"We are very excited that we are now able to complement our 3D groupware solution with Right Hemisphere's leading edge technology in Product Graphics Management," said Thomas Koytek, CEO of IPEQ GmbH.
