PDXpert PLM Website Ranked Second Most Popular

In only 6 months, Active Sensing, Inc. attracts wide interest for its Product Lifecycle Management software

CASTLE ROCK, Colorado, August 7, 2007 — According to rankings published by Alexa®, Active Sensing, Inc.'s PDXpert® PLM website is now the second most popular among product data management sites. BuyPLM.com ranks just behind Agile Software Corporation's website, while the PDM/PLM software sites of Dassault Systemes, Aras Corporation and SofTech, Inc. round out the Top 5 list. Rankings produced by Alexa, which tracks Internet usage around the world, are based on a three-month rolling average and combine metrics for both website visitors ("reach") and unique pages viewed ("interest"). Using these metrics, Alexa also places the PDXpert PLM website ahead of Arena Solutions, listed in the supply chain management category.

"It's been exciting to watch the swift rise of our BuyPLM.com ranking, reflecting the enthusiastic response to PDXpert PLM software. Our unique approach to selling PLM software, from encouraging free evaluation downloads to openly publishing our price list, has clearly struck a chord with many companies," said Linda Constantine, Vice President of Active Sensing, Inc. "We're gratified that just 6 months after releasing PDXpert PLM software and with very modest marketing efforts, BuyPLM.com has become such a popular destination."

ASI's BuyPLM.com website simplifies the entire PLM software evaluation, purchase and support experience. The website offers immediate access to product literature; free, fully-functional evaluation software via download; helpful technical installation and configuration documentation; on-line and downloadable training videos; and a pricing calculator for evaluating perpetual- and subscription-based software licensing alternatives.
