McObject Boosts Russian Market Presence with New Distributor and Web Site
May 2, 2005 — To further penetrate one of the world’s most important software markets, McObject® announced it has signed SySoft, a Moscow-based development expert and current McObject Solution Provider, as distributor of its eXtremeDB™ in-memory embedded database and related technology in Russia and Russian Federation countries.
McObject has also launched a new Russian language Web site at www.mcobject.ru.
Since 2004, SySoft has provided development and training services for eXtremeDB licensees. Among other projects, SySoft recently added Unicode support into eXtremeDB for a major Japanese consumer electronics company, enabling the customer to meet its aggressive development schedule for a new eXtremeDB-based personal MP3 player.
In addition to McObject projects, SySoft has built a successful embedded systems consultancy, providing board support package (BSP) development, software porting and customization, hardware modeling and prototyping, firmware development and other services to a client roster that includes major European and Silicon Valley technology companies.
Under the new agreement with McObject, SySoft adds marketing and sales of McObject software to its Solution Provider responsibilities, becoming McObject’s key business partner in Russian-speaking lands.
“SySoft has distinguished itself as a Solution Provider in the past year, and has proven itself adept at capitalizing on the growing embedded systems development market that is emerging in Russian Federation countries,” Steve Graves, McObject CEO and co-founder, said.
“Clearly, SySoft’s high level of technical expertise, track record of completed projects, and demonstrated business acumen auger well for its new role as McObject distributor, and we have high hopes for this relationship,” Graves said
