Original Press Release:

Autoweb Launches Product Data Vault Solution for Manufacturers

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Feb. 6 / -- Autoweb Inc., a global provider of data management services for the manufacturing industry, announced the launch of its new Data Vault, a light-weight, hosted, product data management (PDM) solution offered as an on-demand service based model for companies in the small- to mid-sized markets.

The Autoweb Data Vault provides users with key tools such as:
o Version tracking
o Lifecycle management
o File level management
o File import/export capabilities and
o Document search capabilities

Autoweb's first customer went 'live' on this product the week of January 30th, 2006.

The benefits of PDM solutions, such as reduced data errors, increased intellectual property protection, and increased engineering efficiencies, have long been realized by larger manufacturers but not by the small- to mid-sized market because of the resources required to implement these systems.

By delivering the Data Vault in a hosted environment, Autoweb brings product data management capability to small- to mid-sized markets previously unable to deploy these systems internally.

"With this solution, Autoweb is bringing to market a business model that we believe will be valuable for our target manufacturing customers," says Nino DiCosmo, chairman, president and CEO of Autoweb.

He adds, "Autoweb is pleased to bring Data Vault to a market that has long seen the rewards of owning a PDM solution but hasn't been able to allocate resources and deploy a PDM solution internally. Data Vault is an effective data management solution that helps these companies to know where their data is, know its status, know it's secure and know that it's right."
