Synchronicity Expands in Italy with Siscad S.p.A.

2/12/2004 - Synchronicity, Inc has signed Siscad S.p.A. to distribute their design reuse, collaboration and management software in Italy. Siscad provides integrated solutions for CAD and EDA systems, software and methodology services, and will provide local sales, support and training for Synchronicity's software.

Synchronicity already has considerable success in Italy with large customers such a STMicroelectronics but Siscad is seen as the right partner to move Synchronicity further into the that market. Initially, the focus will be on Siscad's established Italian customer base and users of the Cadence Virtuoso design platform but soon after Siscad will help extend Synchronicity to cover PCB development. Siscad has done well in Italy with many significant customers such as Telecom Italia, Marconi, Olivetti, Alenia, Italtel, and Laben.

By advising on solutions for complete customer design environments, Siscad adds experience in both optimizing use of existing resources as well as planning additional systems. On a consulting basis they examine and plan design workflows to maximize the return on software licenses and engineering salaries.

"We chose Siscad because of its demonstrated success supporting EDA companies in Italy such Summit, Aldec, Simplicity, Forte Design System, and Zuken," said Paul Gibson, Synchronicity VP European Operations. "Siscad's skilled sales people and applications engineers bring the ideal combination of business and technical expertise, and they are uniquely positioned to design and implement the most efficient environment for customers' design processes."

"We strive to offer our customers complete and efficient design environments and so we are very pleased add Synchronicity's best-in-class design management, reuse and collaboration software," added Valerio Scibilia, Siscad Managing Director. "We pride ourselves on delivering a better return on the engineering investment our customers make and the productivity gains that Synchronicity's software brings will strengthen our value."
