Rink Printing Contracts with Cebic Technologies to Monitor Komori LS-640 Press

Press release from the issuing company

DENVER, Colorado - June 2006 - When Rink Printing Company, a printing and fulfillment company located in northern Indiana, acquired a new six-color, 40-inch Komori LS-640 printing press, one of the first steps the company took was to make certain it was monitored directly by Cebic Technologies, Inc. "The Komori, like most newer equipment produced today, is plugged directly into our network," explains Joseph Castenando, Rink vice president of operations. " In exchange for greater efficiencies and the ability to eliminate redundancies in our operations, however, the press is vulnerable to all the security problems that come with computers and networks." "This press is a vital contributing part of our revenue stream. If it goes down, we could lose hundreds of dollars an hour. But even more important is our ability to meet our customer's needs," said Castenando. Rink produces time-sensitive printing for financial institutions and marketing roll outs where there is a very short cycle time from inception to print production and end user delivery. There's no fudge time in the event a machine fails to operate. Cebic has monitored the company's computer network since 2004, much to Rink's satisfaction. One of the greatest benefits, according to Castenando is having Microsoft and other software providers' patches, upgrades and fixes installed as soon as they become available. "Cebic keeps all of our machines up to speed, updated, cleaned any viruses and in compliance with legal requirements. They allow us to use the computer for just the purposes we want to without worrying about security or updates," he said. "They also give us great Windows support." Rink Printing doesn't have a full time Windows person on staff, but relies on Cebic technicians to help with software installation and troubleshooting. Cebic also provides hardware and software health monitoring. "These managed services are no longer a luxury but a very necessary precaution to keep the network and equipment running smoothly," explained Cebic CEO Beate Hybinette. Cebic Technologies Inc. is a managed information technology and security service provider. Cebic's managed services model and technology products provide organizations with affordable real-time information technology management for entrepreneurial businesses, allowing owners and employees to concentrate on running the business rather than dealing with computer issues that require a high level of technical expertise.
