Product Sight Becomes a Foundation Partner in the UGS Partner Program

Bellevue, WA, September 21, 2005 - Product Sight Corporation, technology leaders in product data search, today announced that it has further enhanced its alliance with UGS, a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, with advancement to Foundation level in the UGS Partner Program. This advancement indicates Product Sight(TM) has established a relationship with UGS that is centered on the adoption of UGS' Foundation technologies. UGS Foundation Partners are able to participate in specifically defined joint sales and marketing activities.

Product Sight extends UGS' Teamcenter® digital lifecycle management software portfolio with a search powered approach for finding and connecting related product information for global teams, extended lifecycle processes, and uniform product specifications. This approach offers unique advantages because it extracts product-related data from many different sources and automatically discovers inter-relationships buried in content such as technical documents, CAD, PDM and application databases.

"Because UGS maintains a consistent focus on our customers' business success, we are constantly searching for innovative partner solutions," said Bill Boswell, senior director, Teamcenter Marketing, UGS. "We're pleased to add Product Sight as a UGS Foundation Partner because their integrated solution extends PLM searches to include inventory, costing, or supply chain information discovered from a wide variety of information systems. This multiple system search and classification aspect of Product Sight can significantly reduce the effort necessary to gather related information."

Product Sight helps UGS customers gain innovation effectiveness by speeding profitable new product delivery with integrated tools for:

Extended product data search to easily find related information from multiple IT systems and network locations, automatically classified for how it is connected to Teamcenter lifecycle processes

As-is product data discovery, analysis, knowledge mining, migration, and loading for comprehensive Teamcenter data management and control

When people can easily access existing information related to a new idea, they can speed the time from concept through design to manufacturing along with improved decision support to better manage the related costs and risks.

"With this announcement UGS has reinforced its commitment to help Teamcenter customers drive critical business initiatives for new product development and introduction, global product development, and regulatory compliance," said Bruce Winegarden, President and CEO, Product Sight. "Our Product Sight team got to interact with many of the Teamcenter product managers as part of the rigorous Foundation Partnership review. I am impressed with their vision and execution as a company and appreciate their recognition of the complementary added value that Product Sight brings for Teamcenter customers."
