Poing, September 26, 2001 Oce Printing Systems and CEYONIQ AG are systematically expanding the strategic partnership they entered into at CeBIT 2000. Oce employs over 22,000 employees worldwide and last year achieved sales worth over 3.2 billion Euro. The focus in future will be on worldwide co-operation, chiefly in Europe and the USA, and on joint development of new markets, particularly in the field of print data archiving.
As one of the projects in this co-operation, the two companies will be co-defining a solution for rapid, fully automated storage of print data. Oce will be integrating CEYONIQ solution modules into the Oce PRISMA architecture and will be marketing the resulting complete solutions, taking into account the individual needs of customers. In return, CEYONIQ will integrate Oce components as its components of choice for archiving print data in CEYONIQ DMS and workflow projects.
The solutions will be marketed worldwide, i.e. also on the US market, where both companies already enjoy a good position. Revenue growth in the license business above all derives from marketing-related co-operation and OEM deals. By expanding their co-operation, both companies will be able to develop existing and new fields of business with a partner who has a strong position in numerous markets.
