Cyco Software and ECT International Implement Strategic Partnership

ECT International, a provider of electrical design software, has entered into a strategic partnership with Cyco Software. The partnership is designed to provide customers of both companies access to the combined advantages of EDM and electrical CAD software. This will enable them to manage their technical documentation more efficiently with fewer errors.

ECT's promis-e software automates the creation of electrical control system designs. Users can generate schematics quickly and accurately using the software's many automatic functions including ID assignment, wire numbering, cross referencing and error checking. Reports such as bills of material, wire lists and terminal plans are also generated automatically.

Cyco Software's flagship data management solution, Cyco AutoManager Meridian, assures that the latest revisions of the right documents are available to the right people, every time. Along with flexible revision management, Cyco AutoManager Meridian offers workflow support for both projects and single document types. Users can compare revisions and reinstate previous revisions, and 'as-built' documentation is separated from 'under revision' data.

The integration between promis-e and Cyco AutoManager Meridian enables the electrical controls design functionality of promis-e to connect with the engineering document management capabilities of Cyco AutoManager Meridian. The two companies cooperated to ensure integration between the two products, creating a collaborative environment where users can maximize the combined strength of both products.

"The relationship with Cyco is ideal for us because many of our users have a need for a document management solution," said Arthur Sawall, President of ECT International, Inc.

Cyco Software is glad to welcome ECT International to its Alliance Program, Cyco Software's new business partner and technology community that aims to provide Cyco customers with add-on solutions for Cyco AutoManager products. "We are very pleased to add ECT International to our growing portfolio of Alliance Partners," says Luis Quiles, Business Development Manager with Cyco Software. "We have a lot of experience in supporting various CAD software platforms, so it's a natural extension for us to provide our customers with support for electrical CAD."

Cyco Software customers are invited to attend the Cyco International User Conference 2005 in June. For more information, please visit .
