hybris and SolidWorks form technology partnership - Online catalogue solution 3DpartStream.NET connects to PIM solution

London, 30 January 2007: hybris (, a leading e-commerce and product information management vendor, has joined forces with SolidWorks, a producer of 3D CAD technologies. The framework agreement involves the integration of the SolidWorks web-based catalogue solution 3DpartStream.NET into the product information management (PIM) solution developed by hybris. Customers of both companies can now benefit from improved data quality as well as 3D visual representation as the up-to-date and consistent information will save them time and costs when it comes to searching for the right product.

The 3DpartStream.NET online platform allows companies to create an online 3D catalogue of their website within 24 to 48 hours. 3D models, 2D illustrations and web graphics are published along with comprehensive product information, which are then consolidated and managed irrespective of format in a central repository thanks to a connection to the hybris PIM solution. The 3DpartStream.NET online catalogue can also be accessed from this platform.

“In SolidWorks we have found a solid partner so that we can offer our customers genuine added value”, said Ariel Lüdi, CEO of the hybris Group. “We settled on this partnership because the solid graphics know-how combined with our tried-and-tested PIM platform is perfectly suited to the market demands for up-to-date and visual product information.”

“As customers are increasingly looking for PIM solutions, we expect to achieve vastly improved levels of customer satisfaction as a direct result of this technology partnership,” said Timo Brüggemann, 3DpartStream.NET European Manager at SolidWorks. “The combined solution offers customers huge potential. It allows them to increase their market presence as well as boost sales opportunities.”
