Océ and Sefas Innovation Announce Strategic Partnership

Friday, February 20, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Trumbull, CT - Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, and Sefas Innovation, a leading publisher of document production software, announce the formation of a strategic partnership between the two companies. The collaboration of these two international leaders broadens the availability of comprehensive document processing resources for customers throughout North America, including Océ and Sefas offerings for output management, print stream reengineering and optimization, and production management.

As part of this collaboration, which is effective immediately, Océ will offer Sefas Open Print Remake software, a print stream re-engineering tool that allows companies to perform complex document enhancements without changing the original application. By offering Sefas Open Print Remake software as part of the Océ PRISMA portfolio, customers will benefit from one integrated workflow solution to perform print stream enhancements, such as moving, colorizing, adding or removing information on pages.

"We wanted to extend our offerings and bring more post-composition capabilities to our customers with the goal of helping them increase productivity across their workflow," said Eric de Goeijen, Vice President of Marketing, Océ North America. "This combined solution will help our customers rapidly colorize existing data-streams, add TransPromo messages, and immediately take advantage of our new full color digital printers and other efficiencies such as the implementation of the new Intelligent Mail barcode. In addition, the software capabilities support all Océ color and monochrome printers, from cut sheet to continuous form, further increasing the value of the investment for our customers."

At the same time, Sefas will offer Océ PRISMAproduction output management software products in the North American market. "The Océ PRISMAproduction line includes cross-vendor workflow solutions that let print operations effectively manage any number of output devices regardless of location or vendor. The arrangement complements the existing Sefas product line by adding output management to its end-to-end document production suite.

"Our partnership with Océ allows us to be a single source for organizations looking to implement a fully automated document factory," said Sefas Chief Operating Officer Bruno Henry. "The pairing of the capabilities overcomes many of the challenges that can hinder true automation and tracking and provides our customers a fully integrated document production platform."

The partnership also provides a structure for collaboration on larger Automated Document Factory (ADF) implementations that involve advanced print stream optimization and multi-site enterprise management. As a result, customers benefit from proven control and greater automation at the enterprise level.
