Canadian and Russian software companies sign new distribution agreement

Georgetown, Ontario (December 12, 2005) Cogent Real-Time Systems, provider of real-time data connectivity software for industrial applications, has signed a new distribution agreement with SWD Software Ltd, of St. Petersburg, Russia. Both companies feel that this new agreement reinforces their strong working relationship.

"SWD Software has been a Cogent sales partner for nearly ten years," said Andrew Thomas, president of Cogent. "We are pleased to sign this agreement with a company that knows our products and has installed and supported many QNX and Windows based applications across Russia."
