InfoPrint Launches Mailroom Integrity Solution

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

BOULDER, CO – October 20, 2008 – Today, InfoPrint Solutions Company, a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, announced the launch of the InfoPrint Mailroom Integrity Solution, a cost effective Automated Document Factory (ADF) product that automates mailroom printing and insertion workflow. The solution brings advanced automated reprint technology as well as robust document management capabilities to operations of all sizes with a standardized product. This will result in increased productivity and reduced errors by streamlining the print and mail process. The solution itself is built on the InfoPrint ProcessDirector (IPPD) backbone, packaged along with modular features including vendor-neutral inserter management, document-level control and tracking, and fully auditable reports that can confirm every document is mailed accurately, every time.
This solution offers leading edge, highly scalable technology, allowing transactional printers and service bureaus to address today's need for full integrity in the mailroom, as well as lay a foundation to build upon for future workflow requirements such automating the inclusion of targeted marketing messages onto transactional documents in TransPromo applications.
"Our Mailroom Integrity Solution really brings the benefits of many years of research and development in mailroom operations to our customers of all sizes," said Enrico Parodi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Technology & Solutions Development for InfoPrint. "The more than one hundred ADF installations we have completed have been custom built, large scale business transformations for major enterprises like AIG.  Now with our launch of our Mailroom Integrity Solution, we can deliver the ADF values of process automation and total integrity to printers and mailers across the board in a standard product offering."
Extending Mailroom Integrity to another level
InfoPrint implements ADF to automate, control and manage entire print and mail processes in efforts to solve three common challenges: postal optimization, mailroom integrity and output management.  IPPD, a configurable output process management system is the foundation for the ADF implementation, and allows print houses to re-engineer transaction output processes by adding new components and functionality as the requirements of each output evolves.  This, combined integrated features such as a robust document re-engineering tool, inserter support and an data stream indexer, provides full function capabilities for the InfoPrint Mailroom Integrity Solution bundle.
The InfoPrint Mailroom Integrity Solution enables mailroom processes to flow smoother and faster.  It solves everyday issues with mailroom print such as mailpiece tracking, accuracy in printing and document integrity, automatic reprints and accurate process management.
"InfoPrint is historically a leader in ADF, deploying some of the largest and most complicated solutions to both large and small companies answering their mailroom needs," said Pete Basilere, Principal Analyst, Printing Markets for Gartner.  "Its cutting-edge technology is truly a modular offering, allowing for plug-ins to be installed and seamlessly integrated without interfering with the current print process – an aspect of transactional and mailroom print that is difficult to address."
The History of ADF
The term ADF was originally coined by Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, in 1996.  According to Gartner's definition, ADF controls, manages and automates the end-to-end print process including electronic postal sortation including sorter optimization, automated reprints, a centralized Intelligent Mail Barcode utility and a centralized and automated process management tool.  Input, transformation and integrated output, delivery preparation, control and reporting, response management and document design and content integration are the six modules to which ADF applies.  InfoPrint Mailroom Integrity Solutions addresses each of these areas.
