SALT LAKE CITY – May 8, 2007 – MasterControl Inc. today announced that it has entered into a technology partnership with Informative Graphics Corp. (IGC) that will allow MasterControl users to achieve greater efficiency through enhanced collaboration in complex processes requiring 3D CAD applications.

IGC is a leading developer of commercial software for content visualization, redaction, publishing, and collaboration. IGC products are widely used by engineers and design professionals in areas where speed and accuracy are paramount for design collaboration.

The MasterControl-IGC partnership allows users to use IGC viewer applications in conjunction with MasterControl GxP process management software. This relationship will provide the following benefits:

  • MasterControl users will be able to view three-dimensional CAD models without needing to install the native application on their computers.

?This strategic partnership between MasterControl and IGC is what synergism is all about. It combines two great products to address a common stumbling block for many manufacturers by enhancing the user's capability to collaborate on engineering designs and documentation,? said Matthew M. Lowe, MasterControl product manager.
