October 22, 2008 -- Mobile, AL -- Xanté, the brand that is fast becoming the hero of small and mid-size prepress and print shops needing competitive, state-of-the-art technology at practical price points, announces today the launch of the Xanté discussion forum on PrintPlanet, the world's largest e-community for print. The new forum, which will provide opportunities for open discussion on Xanté products, technical tips, and upcoming news, can be accessed at: http://printplanet.com/forums/xante/
PrintPlanet, is part of the WhatTheyThink.com online media organization serving the print and publishing industry with more than 50,000 members worldwide.
"The Xanté customer community in the past few years alone has really expanded, and with that growth comes the desire to find additional ways to keep communications flowing in an atmosphere that is both responsive and intimate -- hallmarks of the Xanté customer service philosophy," said Robert Ross, Xanté CEO. "The PrintPlanet Xanté forum is the perfect complement to the extensive customer and technical service that we provide. We know that our users will appreciate learning about first-hand experiences with Xanté solutions, and sharing their unique knowledge with peers. I personally, along with other Xanté experts, look forward to becoming an active member of the forum, and helping it to grow."
Randy Davidson, President of WhatTheyThink, sees the Xanté forum as an important addition to the PrintPlanet line-up of print-focused discussion forums. "We've noticed an increase in participation among Xanté customers and prospects, representing small and mid-sized print operations. These print professionals use PrintPlanet as an important resource because it allows them to beeline to the latest information, as well as share their knowledge. We give them the platform to discuss, debate, and learn about issues and topics that are vital to business success."
"We are pleased that Xanté supports this newest discussion group on PrintPlanet and we look forward to an active e-community," says Davidson.
