CDI COMPUTER SERVICES AND ARIES TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT

 MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- CDI Computer Services and Aries Technology, Inc. today announced a strategic partnership designed to stimulate support for the use of Aries predictive engineering software as part of the visual engineering product design process with CDI Computer Services' customers. Visual engineering allows engineers to "view" a product or component design from CAD data in real-time motion, often reducing the number of prototypes needed, which can reduce both prototyping costs and development time.
 The partnership allows CDI Computer Services to promote, use, license and train users (who have already received core training from Aries) in the application of Aries predictive engineering software to enhance CDI's engineering and visual engineering services. In addition, Aries will refer customers needing contract design assistance to CDI Computer Services.
 Under the agreement, CDI Computer Services has exclusive rights to market Aries predictive engineering software within the North American operations of CDI Corporation. CDI Computer Services can also market Aries software products, bundled with various hardware platforms and engineering services, to provide turnkey solutions to engineering departments being served by CDI Computer Services. CDI Computer Services will provide additional services in areas such as systems integration, contract services and development of macro programs.
 "Our partnership with Aries will allow us to enhance the breadth and depth of our visual engineering offering to a wide range of industries," said Greg Stanalajczo, vice president, CDI Computer Services. "Aries' predictive engineering software, which has become an integral part of our visual-engineering approach to product design, will help our customers save time and money throughout the engineering process."
 As part of the agreement, CDI Computer Services has purchased an initial 20 licenses to provide core and advanced training to CDI personnel.
 As an Aries value-added reseller (VAR), CDI Computer Services can market Aries software licenses to its established customers directly or on a time-and-materials basis when bundled with hardware and services as a turnkey solution. CDI Computer Services will also provide its customers with advanced training in development of macro programs and customized applications. Aries Technology and CDI will work together to develop additional advanced training classes that will be available to all Aries users.
 "This partnership establishes CDI Computer Services as a preferred source for Aries predictive engineering software, Aries-based visual- engineering services and advanced applications training for Aries users," said James Crowe, director of the central region for Aries Technology. "As a premier engineering services company, CDI is uniquely positioned to help Aries Technology software users to maximize their engineering productivity."
 CDI Computer Services will also provide Aries Technology with personnel recruiting and contract-programming services.
