April 17, 2000. San Jose, CA.
Good Bye ACI US, Hello 4D, Inc.
ACI US, Inc. publishers of the 4th Dimension RAD/RDBMS Environment,
announced today that they will change their name to 4D, Inc. After 16 years
ACI US decided it was time to change their name to reflect the more
recognizable name of their popular product line.
4D, Inc. hopes that this change will increase brand recognition and make it
easier for developers to help clients benefit from the powerful features
that the 4th Dimension (4D) product line has to offer.
Now, customers who are curious about 4D can go to 4D.com and actually find
information about our products instead of utilizing a search engine because
they couldn't remember ACI US. If you have links to the acius.com web site
do not worry about broken links, 4D, Inc. will continue to retain the
acius.com domain name and will transfer all requests it receives to the
4D.com site. However to reduce the risk of broken links efforts should be
made to update links to the new domain name.
"4D, Inc . is a positive change for the entire 4D community," said Brendan
Coveney, President 4D, Inc. formerly ACI US, Inc. "We will increase brand
recognition which will make it easier for potential customers to recognize
who we are and find us on the Internet."
The change to 4D, Inc. will not affect either the 4D product line itself or
the excellent manufacturing, distribution and support processes that 4D
customers are accustomed to. All changes are considered to be in name only.
The corporate name has been ACI since 1984.
The URL for our new location on the web is: http://www.4D.com
