Altiva Software to Exhibit at Mid-Continent MicroStation Community Conference

August 11, 2006 (Houston, TX) — Altiva Software will be exhibiting and presenting at the Mid-Continent MicroStation Community users conference which will be held at the Overland Park Convention Center in Overland, Kansas on August 16-17.

The conference is an opportunity for users of MicroStation to come together for networking and learning. MicroStation from Bentley Systems, Inc. is one of the most widely-used computer aided drafting tools on the market. The event features two days of sessions and workshops presented by professionals from around the region and the country, including end-users and other industry experts sharing their experience and knowledge with MicroStation, related products, and related general issues, such as plotting.

Altiva will be demonstrating CADconform, its software add-on that works seamlessly between MicroStation® and AutoCAD® to promote and enforce 100% conformance to CAD standards. In addition, Altiva Software Business Development Manager Marie Franklyn will be presenting a session on how using CADconform can boost the workflow of both internal drafting groups and for use with external drafting organizations, such as outsourcing and consulting companies.

A new session was recently added to the conference agenda for CADScript, a software add-on that brings publication-quality graphics into the CAD environment. Bentley Systems recently purchased CADScript from Corporate Montage, the software company from which Altiva Software was spun off.

"We always welcome the opportunity to participate in user group conferences," said Altiva Software CEO Philip Hurlston. "These events not only provide us an opportunity to demonstrate our flagship product, CADconform, but it's also a great opportunity to hear directly from CADconform users about what they like about the product and what enhancements they'd like to see added in the future."
