Altima Technologies has enhanced its comprehensive library of vendor-specific computer/telecomm and audio/video network equipment shapes and stencils by releasing 3,000 additional shapes and stencils. Custom shapes are also available via special orders.

Altima Technologies, Inc., a Microsoft® Visio® Partner and the leading supplier of intelligent equipment shapes, announces the release of 3,000 additional shapes in its NetZoom libraries.

NetZoom products enable users to create detailed network diagrams and presentations in a variety of diagramming applications including Microsoft Visio®, Microsoft PowerPoint, iGrafx, AutoCAD, netViz and numerous other applications.

Altima Technologies allows its end-users to request additional shapes/stencils. If a user cannot find a shape/stencil they need Altima creates that shape in one to two weeks.

“Networks are evolving at an accelerating rate. Those trying to keep up with the ever-changing technology understand it is important to maintain up-to-date and accurate information,” said Sara Clark, President of Altima Technologies. “That is why Altima is dedicated to completing customer shape requests with ultimate precision and in the most time-effective manner possible.”

Altima Technologies partners with leading hardware manufacturers in its Manufacturer Certified Stencil Program, or MCS, to create exact replicas of their computer/telecomm and audio/video product lines. The manufacturer specific shapes are added to the NetZoom library after the hardware manufacturer approves each product. The MCS program ensures that the shapes and stencils are detailed, accurate and up-to-date within the libraries.

"Our customers use Visio stencils extensively and having easily downloadable equipment shapes has been invaluable. Because Altima can quickly create new shapes as new products are announced, they offer the best alternative for keeping our library up-to-date. And, since we market through distribution, their email notification of shapes downloaded by customers provide us with better insight into our customer base," said Raylene Kadrmas of Metrobility Optical Systems.
