BOSTON, MA - Invention Machine , a leading provider of innovation software, today announced a new distribution agreement with TriStar Incorporated, a full-service provider of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) implementation and consulting services, along with the leading CAD software.

Under the terms of the agreement, TriStar now represents Invention Machine's innovation intelligence platform, Invention Machine Goldfire, and will introduce it to their strategic customers: aerospace and defense, automotive, chemical, consumer, food and beverage, life sciences, oil and gas, and technology.

TriStar is a PTC Platinum Authorized Reseller and is PTC's leading provider in North America. Goldfire complements TriStar's PLM/CAD portfolio, helping companies bring better ideas into their PLM processes, while also enabling organizations to get the most out of their design content.

Goldfire fills a critical need that our manufacturing customers have; one that is not being addressed by any other software solution.
