Los Angeles, CA - July 28, 2008 - On July 1, 2008, Cuadra Associates, Inc. joined the SydneyPLUS group of companies. For more than 25 years, Cuadra has set the standard for powerful and versatile information management and retrieval software. Now, as before, Cuadra's products continue to earn the highest ratings from their users, while the name Cuadra has become synonymous with quality and integrity. The Cuadra management team, led by Dr. Carlos A. Cuadra and Ms. Judy Wanger, will remain with the company, as will Cuadra's renowned technical support and development staff.
The addition of Cuadra to the SydneyPLUS family is expected to accelerate innovation by bringing together two companies with a common vision for agile and adaptable KM solutions. SydneyPLUS is well known for helping Fortune 1000 companies, top law firms and industry leaders to better collect, manage and disseminate information with their multi-lingual, Unicode-compliant MS-SQL and Oracle-based solutions. Cuadra has a solid reputation for delivering flexible, world-class "corporate memory" systems to manage library, archive, museum and media collections and support competitive intelligence, publishing and records management operations.
Together, Cuadra and SydneyPLUS will provide a group of complementary products and services to help their customers meet their key business objectives—reduced costs, increased revenues and improved productivity. Customers and business partners will benefit from both the combined solutions and the strength of a larger software vendor. The synergies created by the merger will allow clients to deploy Web-based solutions for a broad range of information management needs more quickly and cost-effectively.
Cuadra will continue to protect and reward its customers' investment in STAR products by adding new features and capabilities, as well as new applications. The company recently released STAR Knowledge Center for Libraries, a completely web-based library application, and will soon introduce web-based versions of their STAR/Media and STAR/Archives applications. SydneyPLUS and Cuadra remain dedicated to maintaining and increasing the qualities that their customers have come to expect—technical innovation, exceptional service, outstanding reliability and a lifelong reputation for integrity.
