A Press Release
McObject and Logic Technology Expand Distributorship in Europe
September 7, 2004 — In an agreement signifying a mutual vote of confidence, McObject, developer of the eXtremeDB in-memory embedded database, and Logic Technology BV, distributor of embedded development tools and embedded software, based in the Netherlands, have expanded Logic Technology’s role as a distributor of McObject’s technology, adding two large European markets to Logic Technology’s territory.
The agreement gives Logic Technology exclusive rights to market and re-sell McObject’s software in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland). Logic Technology previously had exclusive McObject distribution only in the Benelux countries, which it retains.
For its part, Logic Technology is strengthening its commitment to McObject by increasing the personnel and other resources devoted to selling eXtremeDB and related products. Designating McObject as a top-level supplier, Logic Technology will assign a product manager to improve communication, build up expertise and create demand for McObject’s software.
In addition, Logic Technology engineers will receive regular training on eXtremeDB software, and will be expected to identify appropriate McObject partners in each territory and to establish and build these relationships.
“Logic Technology is pleased to expand its commitment to McObject, which has proven itself with an impressive, growing list of customers, and also with a flow of enhancements. McObject’s eXtremeDB High Availability fault tolerant data management solution shows particular promise in telecom equipment manufacturing, and the eXtremeWS tiny-footprint Web server offers a compelling tool for efficiently monitoring and controlling a wide range of embedded devices,” Logic Technology’s managing director Leon Houwen said.
“This new distribution arrangement enhances both Logic Technology’s expertise on McObject products, and the distributor’s potential return on investing this expertise in new markets. By working more closely together, McObject and Logic technology will identify and address more customer data management challenges in the UK and Scandinavia, and thus gain market share,” McObject Co-founder and CEO Steve Graves said.
Founded by embedded database and real-time systems experts, McObject offers proven data management technology that makes intelligent devices smarter, more reliable and more cost-effective to develop and maintain. McObject counts among its customers industry leaders such as DaimlerChrysler, Tyco Thermal Controls, Genesis Microchip, Motorola and Boeing. McObject, based in Issaquah, WA, is committed to providing innovative technology and first rate services to customers and partners. The company can be reached at , or visit www.mcobject.com.
