The ongoing market consolidation in our industry continues to reduce the number of competitors. And thirdly, as the leader of the new standard for our industry, Day continues to innovate, demonstrated by our recent development of a new, unique suite of products.”
The Company continues to expand its product portfolio with solutions that include the industry’s first standards-based Digital Asset Management system. Known as CQ DAM, the product will be available in Q2, 2007. Day is also increasing its activity with technology partners to grow its OEM business, and has plans to further expand its own sales force.

Opel’s first project using Day’s technology will be the creation of an online platform for pre-owned cars.
