FOSTER CITY, CALIF. AND LONDON - July 29, 2002 - iManage, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMAN), a leading provider of collaborative content management software for global enterprises, today announced that Zurich architect HZDS AG has deployed iManage WorkSiteŌ MP as the company-wide document management and collaboration platform.

HZDS AG of Zurich is an architectural and design firm with offices in Switzerland and Germany. The firm's architects and general contractors specialize in building and converting facilities for the service industry, commerce and manufacturing companies, and shoulder the responsibility of project management, including coordinating deadlines and managing quality control across a complex network of employees and external business associates, such as designers, structural and construction engineers and estimators. HZDS was looking for a solution to improve business information efficiency across internal and external team members and reduce errors.

iManage WorkSite MP was deployed in weeks and is used by HZDS for all project assignments, providing internal employees and external associates with the ability to access and retrieve information they need on a project's status around the clock, regardless of where they are working. Describing the benefits to his business, David Sigrist, managing partner of HZDS AG of Zurich says, "Using a conservative estimate, we believe that we are currently saving more than 10% of our time ¾ time that we can use more effectively in our business such as within our creative team."

"iManage essentially provides a project-management approach important to HZDS because our teams have a range of tasks to complete within their assigned projects. By utilizing the iManage solution our project heads are now always aware of what is happening both within their teams and on their projects, enabling them to manage projects more effectively and keep everything on schedule," remarks Sigrist. "We also consider our customers to be team members, and because of the portal capabilities of the iManage solution, customers can view the status of their projects through a secure extranet, improving customer satisfaction and giving us a real competitive edge," continues Sigrist.

"The ability to pool resources and collaborate on all project related documents is critical for a general contractor like HZDS," comments Patrick Baudouin, vice president, EMEA, iManage. "The cost savings already seen by HZDS prove that rapid deployment of the right solution can deliver tangible benefits to the business. This is especially important in an industry like construction where margins are low," concludes Baudouin.
