D -Tools Becomes Autodesk Unique Application Reseller

Agreement allows software company to resell AutoCAD

CONCORD, CA, August 25, 2005 - D -Tools announced today that it has been approved to become a Unique Application Reseller (UAR) of AutoCAD software by Autodesk®.


The new agreement means that D -Tools is now allowed to sell a full version of AutoCAD® or upgrades to anyone who has purchased their System Integrator software in the Americas. They will also be allowed to sell products on the Autodesk® Subscription program in the United States.

"This new relationship with Autodesk allows D -Tools to provide users of our software a complete design solution. There's a tremendous amount of effort to get everything in place and ready to go," said Steve Collard, D -Tools COO. "We should have all preparations completed to start selling AutoCAD to our customers by the middle of September."

AutoDesk® started the Unique Application Reseller Program for companies offering industry -focused products best delivered to customers bundled with an Autodesk® product. The UAR program addresses the needs of companies that create complete Autodesk software -based solutions whose unique distribution requirements aren't met by traditional Autodesk sales channels. Companies that are part of the program must be an Autodesk Developer Network member.

In June D -Tools announced the release of version 4.5 of their highly -acclaimed System Integrator software, which leverages the strengths of both AutoCAD® and Visio®, uniting both in one application to offer truly comprehensive design and documentation capabilities.
