Motiva Software Corp. and eQuorum -- Formerly CADNET -- Develop Software Integration.

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 13, 1999--

Integration Between Motiva DesignGroup(TM) and

eQuorum(R) Plot Station(R) Streamlines the Plotting Process

Motiva Software Corp. Tuesday announced the completion of an integration between DesignGroup, Motiva's change management solution for technical applications, and Plot Station, eQuorum's network plotting software.

The integration, called "Plot Station for DesignGroup," extends the technical data management functionality of DesignGroup to include greater control over plot outputs. Plot Station for DesignGroup is available from eQuorum now.

The integration between Motiva's and eQuorum's products enables engineering and manufacturing firms who manage their technical data with DesignGroup to better administer their plotting environments. The Plot Station for DesignGroup integration saves time and expense for those who work with engineering and manufacturing documentation, including CAD administrators, designers and accounting personnel within an organization, as well as suppliers, contractors and customers outside of the organization.

The Plot Station for DesignGroup integration provides several customer benefits. Plot Station enables the user to print technical documents without having to launch CAD programs such as AutoCAD(R) or Mechanical Desktop(R). Not only does this save time for CAD users, it allows other users without CAD programs on their machines to view and print documents. With Plot Station, users can set plotting priorities, re-direct jobs to different printers or plotters, store and submit plots in ordered sets, and run batches at night.

In addition, Plot Station for DesignGroup enables users to capture, track and report project and accounting data. Because Plot Station is an open systems plotting solution, it supports multiple file formats, printers, plotters and networks and is ideal for mixed CAD environments.

Motiva DesignGroup is a change management solution which enables engineering and manufacturing firms to store thousands of technical documents in secure vaults, catalogue data automatically, view and retrieve the correct versions of files, track revision histories for audit purposes and manage collaboration and workflow processes.

Motiva DesignGroup reduces time-to-market by making the input, review, approval and communication of change quick and automatic. DesignGroup facilitates collaboration across multiple geographies by providing secure access to critical technical data over the Internet.

"When our customers asked for more control over printing and plotting, we looked to our Dimensions Partner(TM), eQuorum, to help extend the capabilities of DesignGroup," said Bob Pinkerton, vice president of marketing for Motiva Software.

"By creating a seamless integration between the two products we can provide customers with a total solution for change management of technical applications which includes superior printing and plotting functionality."

"CADNET(R), now eQuorum, is known for enabling customers to get high productivity from mixed environments -- those with multiple CAD applications, a variety of printers and plotters, and diverse operating systems," said Agnes Lewis, chief executive officer of eQuorum.

"As a Developer in the Motiva Dimensions Partner Program, we can extend the reach of our core customer base to include Motiva DesignGroup. This is an excellent means to showcase our full range of products and professional services."
