RENTON, Wash. – November 7th, 2007 – SWsoft, maker of Parallels award-winning virtualization software, announced today that Robert McNeel & Associates has joined the Parallels Partner Program leveraging the ISV Initiative.

The Parallels ISV Initiative is designed to enable Windows-only software vendors to quickly and easily extend their reach to the fast-growing Mac market by taking advantage of Parallels virtualization software for Windows and Mac OS X. Software vendors receive streamlined application compatibility testing, technical support, sales support and co-marketing opportunities. The Parallels Partner Program provides customized access, tools and resources to technology, services and channel partners that enable them to drive customer acquisition and revenue.

Robert McNeel & Associates is a 3-D software developer and maker of Rhinoceros® modeling software. Via the ISV Initiative, Rhinoceros is available to the Mac community through use of SWsoft desktop virtualization product, Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac.

"We want to give our customers more choice when it comes to operating systems," stated Bob McNeel, President of Robert McNeel and Associates. "With Parallels [Desktop] as a tested and compatible Mac option, we are able to offer our customers a great solution for running Rhino on a Mac."

"After extensive testing in our development lab for compatibility and performance, Rhino 3.0 and 4.0 ran smoothly with Parallels Desktop for Mac virtualization software," said Bryan Goode, Director of Business Development, SWsoft. "This is good news for designers who can now access Rhino modeling software regardless of their operating system."
