Trinity Technologies Partners With MetaCarta to Provide a Unique Geospatial Solution for the Utilities Sector

CAMBRIDGE, MA and WELLESLEY, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 5, 2007 -- Trinity Technologies, the leader in configuring, integrating, customizing and implementing content management systems, and MetaCarta®, Inc., the leading provider of geographic intelligence solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to create an integrated geographically enabled content management solution for utility companies. This unique technology combines traditional text or keyword search with powerful geographic search so information in a document management (EDM) system can be mapped, categorized, and searched using geographic parameters across EDM repositories. Trinity Technologies specializes in the application and integration of the EMC Software Group Documentum ™ system.

Increasingly required to access information about their electric, gas, or water distributed network, utilities are being required to bring together traditional document management and geographic information systems (GIS). Geographically enabled content management systems can positively impact each of these areas, allowing easy access to different heritages of document control, forms, procedures, design drawings, maintenance information, systems, and workflows.

Trinity Technologies has an exclusive agreement with MetaCarta for the development and distribution to the utility industries. As part of the agreement, Trinity will develop a series of solutions specifically tailored for the utilities industry.

"This is an important advance in increasing the value of GIS applications. By easily bridging the document assets of a utility with their map system, mission-critical functions such as mobile maintenance, emergency response, and infrastructure protection have the required information to perform their work rapidly and safely. The MetaCarta technology is truly revolutionary," commented Joseph Morray, Jr, president of Trinity Technologies.

"Geographic information is a vital component for utility companies. Partnering with Trinity will enable their customers to use geographic information that currently exists in data repositories throughout their company," said Claudine Bianchi, vice president of marketing at MetaCarta. "We look forward to working with Trinity Technologies to help utilities leverage their information assets."
