The company reviewed performance and announced coming product upgrades at a press conference here on March 19, at National Manufacturing Week, which includes the Industrial Automation Show (March 18-21).

Entivity, the combination of Think&Do and Steeplechase, with minority investment from Schneider Electric, expects to update versions of EntivityVLC 6.0 in April and EntivityStudio 7.0 in June.

Also offered are EntivityAPN, collaborative web services for project management; and EntivityESS, Entivity Subscription Services, which provides a higher level of sales and support for Entivity products.

Other news reviewed included a 30% increase in OEM sales over 2000 even as project sales fell slightly; Entivity's expansion into Western Europe, Asia Pacific, and Africa; and partnerships previously announced with Cognex, Intelligent Instrumentation, and Xycom.
