conference this week in Anaheim, CA



Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from SmarTeam Inc.

    BEVERLY, Mass., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Solutions, a Dassault
 Systemes (Nasdaq: DASTY) company and its Americas subsidiary, SmarTeam Inc.,
 today announced formation of a partnership with Oce-USA, Inc., whereby the two
 companies will integrate the Oce Engineering Exec(R) suite of enterprise print
 management solutions, with SmarTeam's collaborative product commerce (CPC)
 offerings.
     The integration will provide customers with the ability to track, manage,
 archive and print a full range of product development information over
 networks and the Internet.  Additionally, the resulting ability to share
 information enterprise-wide within an organization and throughout its extended
 enterprise via the Web will save customers substantial time and expense.
 SmarTeam and Oce-USA will be demonstrating the new capabilities at the CATIA
 Operator's Exchange (COE) meeting, taking place this week in Anaheim, Calif.
     Avichay Nissenbaum, vice president of product marketing for Smart
 Solutions, said, "The SmarTeam integration with Oce Engineering Exec software
 is a quick and easy field installation, and will provide existing SmarTeam
 customers with seamless printing support for the significant base of legacy
 drawings, blueprints, aperture cards and other existing product designs that
 are in non-electronic format at most manufacturing firms. Once scanned, this
 legacy data becomes an integral part of the CPC system, as though it had been
 created in an electronic format.  SmarTeam manages the storage and management
 of legacy and proprietary information, in multi-CAD environments, and is the
 only CPC solution to currently provide this benefit.  The partnership with
 Oce-USA will allow our customers to manage, print and plot any document from
 any source."
     "Today as a CAA V5 partner, Oce Engineering Exec software offers CATIA
 users enterprise print management capabilities.  Our partnership with SmarTeam
 further extends these benefits into the CPC marketplace and really delivers on
 the promise of an efficient, networked enterprise," states Ron Butterman,
 marketing director of software for the Oce Wide Format  Printing Systems
 business unit.  "In addition, since this integration can be done in the field,
 existing Oce Engineering Exec software and SmarTeam users can benefit
 immediately from this partnership. Our customers can now extend their
 capabilities into the rapidly emerging CPC market".
     Oce Engineering Exec software provides the tools necessary to effortlessly
 archive, control, manage and distribute small and wide-format documents to any
 printing system, and is geared toward the management of CAD and other design
 documents in organizations such as manufacturing, engineering,
 telecommunications, government and utilities.  Oce Engineering Exec software
 also offers integration with ERP and other document management systems, and
 with SmarTeam, has its first CPC integration.
     SmarTeam's broad CPC solutions portfolio enables small-to-medium-sized
 manufacturing organizations and their supply chains to efficiently exchange,
 track and manage design information related to product development from
 concept to realization.
