Original Press Release:


Informative Graphics Corporation to Release DrawBridge Central


DrawBridge Central Reduces the Costs and Delays Associated with Distributing Drawings and Documents to Workgroups, Suppliers and Customers

PHOENIX, Arizona - September 17, 2002 - Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in Web-document technology, announces the release of DrawBridge Central. DrawBridge Central is content management for design data, enabling customers to rapidly build or extend Web sites to share drawing plans and related documents securely. DrawBridge Central is based on IGC's proven Net-It(tm) Central, the intranet solution used by hundreds of customers - many in the Fortune 1000. Like Net-It Central, Drawbridge Central makes Web publishing and sharing data simple, reduces associated costs and improves efficiency.

DrawBridge Central is a complete solution for customers seeking Web site deployment of design data, enabling managers and team members to access drawings and documents through their browser without the need for plug-ins or native applications. DrawBridge Central can also be incorporated into existing organizational Web sites to provide downstream access to CAD and document content inside the walls and out. Suppliers and outside contributors can access and collaborate on drawings and documents without having to purchase, download or install any software.

DrawBridge Central is designed to build a self-managing Web site for document and/or drawing content and includes ready-to-use templates for presentation layout. CAD designers and content authors can contribute documents and drawing plans as easily as saving files. Information contributed to the site is published and indexed into a Web-ready form that can be searched and viewed rapidly, without transferring the native design files to the client machine. DrawBridge automates many site management functions and can greatly reduce wasted time and errors caused by manual Web publishing processes.

"With DrawBridge Central, we have broadened our ability to put content in motion downstream for internal and external access in a wide range of business scenarios, especially in AEC and Manufacturing environments," said Gary Heath, CEO and President at IGC. "Like Net-It Central, DrawBridge Central is just plain easy to install and use, and promises quick ROI in multiples."

Key features of DrawBridge Central include the ability to restrict access by file, folder or site content; organize and set publish and expiration dates for files and/or folders; and conduct full-text and metadata keyword searches. Supported formats include AutoCAD, Microstation, HGPL, TIFF, CGM, Office Products (Microsoft Word, Excel, Visio) and any Microsoft Windows application that supports the Windows print command.
