CONCENTRIC Asia Pacific to Represent Right Hemisphere in Australia-New Zealand

CONCENTRIC Asia Pacific has been appointed as a reseller for Right Hemisphere and its Right Hemisphere 5 suite of solutions to the Australasian region.

"CONCENTRIC is a leader in Australasia for its expertise in 3D CAD/CAM/CAE and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and it has detailed knowledge of the local market," says Mark Thomas, Right Hemisphere CTO and Founder, "This company truly understands how to make its customers more competitive."

"With the Right Hemisphere 5 platform now as part of its offerings, CONCENTRIC will deliver additional productivity gains to its customers. Right Hemisphere's software streamlines visual product communications and collaboration business processes, resulting in overall faster time to market, reduced operational costs and increased revenues associated with new product introductions and their support."

Michael Myers, the Managing Director of CONCENTRIC, says Right Hemisphere complements the existing portfolio of offerings, "We are all about providing our customers with the world's best sustainable solutions and guiding them along their technological evolutionary journeys so that they become more competitive on a global scale. To this end, Right Hemisphere provides a perfect fit."

"Right Hemisphere for Product Graphics Management (PGM) is complementary to ENOVIA MATRIXONE for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and ENOVIA SMARTEAM for Product Data Management (PDM) thus providing a content, graphics and lifecycle management and collaboration solution. What we call 'One Version of the Truth'. It supports our vision as a Digital Technology Integrator by providing a holistic suite of solutions that contribute to every aspect of design- or production-centric business."

The Right Hemisphere 5 platform is a fully integrated set of products that delivers visual product communication and collaboration to the enterprise.

Right Hemisphere's Collaborative Development and Sourcing solution reduces the time to prepare design packages, supplier communications and other engineering deliverables. Product design information-based on current design data stored in CAD and PDM systems-is automatically published using secure and common document formats such as PDF and Microsoft® Office.

Right Hemisphere's Technical Publications and Training solution reduces manual development steps to affordably include more graphical product content. Technical publications and training can be developed concurrently with product design, minimising the risk of delayed product launches. With high-quality product graphics replacing more text, knowledge transfer is improved, language translation costs are reduced, and global product rollout times are shortened.

Right Hemisphere's Sales and Marketing Communications solution enables the delivery of consistent digital product media through multiple channels such as broadcast and cable TV, the Web, iPods, and cell phones. The solution helps teams develop more compelling marketing communications and sales presentations using cost-effective computer-generated imagery (CGI) while also eliminating costly physical prototypes and on-location photo shoots.

Global customers include Microsoft, Siemens, NASA, Lockheed Martin, Pratt & Whitney, Northrop Grumman, Airbus, General Dynamics, Bell Helicopters, Raytheon, DaimlerChrysler and Halliburton.
