BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2001

Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc. is proud to announce the appearance of Tilman Schad, president and CEO of CoCreate Software on Alexander Haig's World Business Review. The episode airs September 11th through September 16th on U.S. public television stations, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Miami. For specific market-by-market air dates and times, please e-mail healingm@mmpusa.com. Host, Alexander Haig, former Secretary of State for President Reagan and former COO and president of United Technologies, discusses "Global Collaboration Systems." Joining in the discussion as industry expert is Daniel T. Miklovic, vice president of Collaborative Commerce, Gartner.

CoCreate Software enables companies to integrate their many facets of product development into an interactive design environment. "The new business paradigm incorporates collaboration and efficiency into a model that leverages intellectual capital to its highest potential," said Bruce Gaster, the show's coordinating producer.

"There are two different approaches to the collaboration issue. One is focused on the tail end of the product development and the transactional processes of getting a product into manufacturing. The other one is at the early part of the design, when people are able to explore many alternatives and there is an interaction between people taking place where they are all looking for a solution to a very complex problem. On the transactional side, I can predict the return on investment relatively accurately. But also my lever, as Dan (Miklovic) has pointed out, is much shorter. At the early part of the design, my lever is very long. But predicting how much I get out of this investment, how much will my competitiveness increase, is very difficult to do. Albeit less predictable, investing in this `fuzzy' front end is where companies have the biggest opportunities to differentiate themselves, growing their top-line and gaining market share," said Schad.

Taped in Washington, DC, World Business Review may also be viewed on PBS The Business & Technology Network, United Airlines, or through video on demand via Yahoo!Broadcast.
