Thursday, September 19, 2002
CHICAGO, Sept. 18 -- Oce, a leading supplier of digital document management and delivery technology, announces an aggressive new approach to providing customers with complete wide-format document management solutions from a single, trusted source. Until November 15, customers can realize thousands of dollars of savings on new bundled solutions, which can include substantial discounts on accessories, software, service, supplies and financing. These solutions are designed to help customers enhance their productivity, improve technical document workflow, and lower operating costs. The new solutions feature the Oce TDS400 and Oce TDS600 multifunction workgroup and mid-volume printers, which enable companies that design, build or manufacture to better manage their entire print, distribution, and archive needs. "Technical drawings are the lifeblood of an organization. They must be quickly located, printed, and delivered, on-demand. Oce's integrated approach gives users more control to get the right information to the right people, when and where needed. The end result is products get to market more quickly and customer services improve," said Joyce Virnich, vice president of marketing for Oce Wide Format Printing Systems. "By combining the most powerful printers in the industry with attractive savings and flexible financing on some of our most popular hardware accessories and software, we are enabling organizations to more easily access systems that deliver bottom- line business benefits." Various equipment/accessory configurations are available which include such features as web-based printing, scan-to-file software for delivering hard-copy documents electronically, and Adobe Postscript and PDF printing to enable users to more easily share engineering documents using a secure and portable file format. Customers can choose options to fit their individual needs and derive optimum benefits for their businesses. Oce offers a variety of flexible leasing programs designed by Oce Credit Corporation and tailored to meet the budget requirements and buying criteria of customers. For instance, customers have the option to delay initial payments for up to 90 days, meaning equipment acquired now will have no payments until 2003. These programs are designed to help customers invest in solutions that will increase their efficiencies today while accommodating individual financial needs. These programs are part of Oce's overall investment in the long term success of its customers. Unlike its competitors, the company not only manufactures the hardware but also develops the software for its document management systems. In-depth expertise and the latest technologies allow the company to provide customers with timely upgrades that keep them competitive and increase their productivity. The systems are designed so that customers do not have to continually invest in new equipment as technology changes. Instead, they can cost-effectively implement software upgrades to remain leading edge in their market. About Oce Oce is a leading supplier of digital document management and delivery technology.
