Graphics Systems Corporation signs agreement to distribute SMARTEAM PLM software

Menomonee Falls, WI (PRWEB) March 3, 2004 -

– The Midwest’s leading SolidWorks reseller, Graphics Systems Corporation (GXSC), announced a strategic reseller partnership with SMARTEAM Corporation Ltd., developers of SMARTEAM®, a Dassault Systèmes PLM solution. GXSC will distribute the product lifecycle management (PLM) software throughout the United States, particularly in Wisconsin and Illinois, where manufacturing is the principal industry and a key target.

As a SolidWorks certified Gold Partner product, SMARTEAM allows users to manage designs, assembly structures and related documents in a “single window” fully integrated with SolidWorks. SMARTEAM enables users to save valuable time with features like the intuitive search editor and a “design copy” element which reuses knowledge to quickly start new projects. Users can work concurrently with shared workspaces in a collaborative design environment viewing, annotating, and printing multiple file formats, and accessing, editing and revising SolidWorks documents. They can also publish eDrawings. SMARTEAM ensures data integrity through automatic bi-directional drawing attribute mapping. It also maintains links with lifecycle rules for each link type and references for improved decision-making, while securing legacy data.

“Midwestern companies are growing by mergers and acquisitions, inheriting multiple CAD data formats with existing processes. The need to create a more efficient file management system, cohesive workflow, and the need to streamline process engineering is critical for companies to become more agile,” states Dave Kasinskas, President of Graphics Systems. “This agility is accomplished by creating efficient organizational processes and prudent use of information technology. Graphics Systems Corporation realizes that this is a critical success factor to our client base, today, and we feel that the SMARTEAM systems are perfectly poised for our customer base.”

Graphics Systems will hold a breakfast meeting/seminar entitled “Solving PLM Challenges with SMARTEAM” on Thursday, April 8, 2004 in their Menomonee Falls office to introduce SolidWorks users in the area to the product.
