Wednesday, August 15, 2001
DAYTON, Ohio--Aug. 14, 2001--Standard Register today announced that LinkUp® Enterprise -- the most versatile, flexible and secure output management solution on the market -- has exceeded the Company's initial sales projections. LinkUp Enterprise, introduced in early June, has now been installed by more than 50 companies nationwide. The system, which merges data with electronic forms to simultaneously deliver document production enterprise-wide, is the choice of numerous banks, healthcare organizations, retailers, schools and energy providers. "We are pleased with the number of customers who are embracing this new technology,'' says John Gustafson, Project Engineer at Standard Register. "LinkUp Enterprise is the continuing evolution of our LinkUp product family,'' he adds, "and it will provide our customers a platform that will continually meet their document automation needs.'' LinkUp Enterprise offers a comprehensive document automation solution with a variety of major features and benefits. Consisting of a base product and multiple add-on modules, customers can select the features they want and create a custom solution. Users can even customize the levels of security they wish to employ within their network, applications, secure printers and documents to ensure that their data and documents are protected. The successor to the Company's highly regarded LinkUp® intelligent printing solution, LinkUp Enterprise helps customers progress to higher levels of document automation, making it one of the most sophisticated output management solutions on the market today. The system can route documents to desktop printers, fax machines, e-mail applications, and even pagers to distribute information throughout a customer's enterprise. "Statistics show that automating a $1 paper form can result in savings of $0.09 per form,'' says Gustafson, "but if you take it one step further and automate both the form and the process of utilizing information from the form, savings increase to $0.48 per form. LinkUp Enterprise provides a process to achieve those cost savings.'' With LinkUp Enterprise, an unlimited number of documents can be designed and printed in centralized or decentralized printing environments. The flexible solution is ideal for printing checks, transcripts, invoices, billing statements, tax forms and more, including the generation of multiple forms in a single print run for information kits such as new employee benefits packets and enrollment applications. The output management solution is an integral part of the Company's Less Paper Strategy®-- a three-phased approach (organize, manage, migrate) to document management that allows customers to decrease their reliance on preprinted documents while transitioning to electronic documents and processes. LinkUp Enterprise helps customers achieve the "migrate'' portion of the strategy by moving them to electronic document formats. Other offerings from the Company's Document Systems Business Unit help customers achieve ever-increasing levels of document automation -- from printing platforms to browser-based and e-forms applications.
