RSA's WebCRD & QDirect at ON DEMAND 2009

Monday, March 23, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Philadelphia, PA -- Rochester Software Associates, Inc. is returning to ON DEMAND on the heels of back-to-back Best of Show awards at the 2008 and 2007 ON DEMAND shows.

The latest version of WebCRD will be demonstrated, including WebCRD OnDemand, RSA's new Hosted ASP offering.  Customers can now choose the best Web-to-Print solution and have the equipment maintained at RSA's Datacenter.   Starting at $1,000/month, this affordable Software-as-a-Service option allows Print Centers to be up-and-running and accepting jobs fast.  Of course, the On-Site version of WebCRD is still available to enterprises that prefer to keep their workflow in-house, out of concerns for security, bandwidth, or automation.
As an example of such automation, WebCRD now offers powerful Barcode Scanning capabilities for Production.  Operators do not need to return to a computer to update the status of a job.  Instead, they can scan the cover sheet of a job to "move" that job through different stages of Production.  The result is fewer touches, as well as more accurate data for measuring and improving productivity.
In addition to new features, WebCRD now includes modules that used to be priced separately!  Job Cost Estimating and Template Based Ordering are now standard, enabling price quotes and PDF Forms-based Variable Data jobs such as business cards.  And for a limited time, SurePDF, RSA's genuine Adobe PDF Print Driver, is available at no charge as part of RSA's Print Stimulus Package released earlier this year!  These pricing changes and promotions represent a $25,000 savings!
Starting at $19,995 including the server, print centers can easily afford the award-winning Web-to-Print solution that they might have thought was out of reach.  And RSA's new ROI Tool demonstrates how quickly customers can see a return on their investment.
QDirect Dynamics builds on the same personalization engine found in WebCRD Dynamics, RSA's automated Web-to-Print Variable Data Printing solution.  However, instead of a web interface, personalization can be performed in batch mode for TransPromo use.  Transactional jobs are routed to QDirect, RSA's Enterprise Output Manager and based on business rules, variable text and images can be imposed for promotional purposes, without operator intervention.
QDirect Print Server, a new entry level version of QDirect Enterprise Output Manager, is now available. Starting at $9,995, the QDirect Print Server appliance enables organizations to better manage print from multiple sources and effectively distribute output to multiple printers.  QDirect Print Server leverages the power of QDirect Enterprise Output Manager, but without enterprise features (legacy transform and Scan to Print Center™) that an organization might not need.
The QDirect Enterprise Output Manager is getting an upgrade as well.  QDirect 3.8 offers user management to restrict what different operators are permitted to do, based on their login, which can be managed by a local database, or via corporate single sign on or LDAP. An audit log is available to track which users did what and when.  Partitioning allows customers to segment jobs, origins, or destinations to create virtual views into QDirect for separate print sites or to segment confidential jobs from general jobs for security purposes.  QDirect also expands printer status to include Paper Stock information and Paper Stock Levels. Status alerts can now be emailed (or sent to an email-text message service) to facilitate unattended operations.  Last but not least, QDirect 3.8 allows for a simple Web based interface version that can be accessed from any standard browser and even mobile devices.
RSA's workflow solutions are available through RSA's partners and directly from RSA.  Prices referenced are RSA's MSRP.  For more information, visit www.rocsoft.com.
