New York, NY, March 13th 2008 - Zweave, Inc., the leading Solutions Company for Collaborative Product Lifecycle Management based in New York City is launching the latest product in its Solutions suite called “Zdesign Desktop™“ on April 7th at Material World In Miami Beach. With the introduction of Zdesign Desktop?, Fashion companies will now have available to them all the benefits of a professionally managed computer desktop. The Zdesign managed desktop solution provides a cost-effective, outsourced alternative for business applications, and Design applications through a seamless browser based interface.

Zdesign Desktop™ can manage the a suite of desktop applications and selected applications necessary to keep the workforce of product development focused organizations productive and connected to their most important product information“, according to Laura McCann-Ramsey, CEO. “Small and medium size organizations require desktop support to manage software maintenance and upgrades, networking, server and file share management, data back up and day to day technical and administrative support.

As a leader in delivering On-demand solutions to the fashion industry Zdesign Desktop is aligned with Zweave’s mission to provide desktop applications and support, how you need them, when you need them for each member of the organization. Zdesign desktop supports traditional office applications but also Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign applications commonly used by design teams. The result is a first class IT environment for a fraction of the cost of these services managed by hired staff or consultants at your location.

“Small and large organizations when implementing PLM look at their information management practices with more scrutiny. What we often find is that members of the product development team have inconsistent and inefficient access to product data. When working with their external partners, file compliance from one version of a software product to another is a challenge as well as the ability for the business team to see design output in native file formats. When traveling having access to all files and directories remotely is a capability that few companies can offer with the proper security and access and a huge benefit of our managed desktop“ said David Buck, CTO. “Zdesign Desktop™ supports these organizations in gaining control over their product information. Often this is the first step to a successful PLM project.“

Zdesign Desktop is powered by MRK Hostwindow a leader in remote desktop management and services. For more information contact or come by our booth at Material World #336.
