HubCast revolutionizes how print is done

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Wakefield, MA. – HubCast changes the way premium-quality print is bought, sold and delivered. HubCast completely automates printing with a simple cloud application that delivers premium print production, competitive pricing, global reach, and the speed of next-day delivery around the world.

Before HubCast, collateral materials were printed in bulk ahead of time making it difficult to make changes or updates and guaranteeing wasted material due to an inability to forecast demand. It also assured large shipping costs to send materials where they were needed. With HubCast, users can easily make changes or updates and match demand with order sizes to eliminate overruns and warehousing. Because of HubCast's global network of on-demand printers, HubCast reduces the cost of shipping – because the printing is done locally – in locations across the globe.

"The recession has forced businesses to determine how their processes can be performed in a more efficient manner," says Pete Basiliere, Research Director at Gartner. "Cloud Print Services enable print production and delivery on a global scale. Organizations benefit from cloud printing by spending less on print-related hardware and software while purchasing only the print they want, where and when they want it."

HubCast is also releasing HubCast Professional, an enhanced version of the service with added features to further improve the user experience. To complement the core HubCast features of an automated real-time quality protocol, file verification and fixing, intuitive user interface and ordering tools and live global pricing, HubCast Professional makes it simpler for the user to upload, store, manage and print premium-quality sales and marketing materials anywhere in the world.

"With HubCast Professional, we are changing the way companies print, giving users the freedom to do more wherever they are and whenever they need to," said Toby LaVigne, founder and CEO, HubCast. "Our advanced cloud services platform delivers print faster and more cost-effectively worldwide."

With HubCast Professional, users can upload and maintain an unlimited number of files to a library on the cloud, ensuring brand integrity and simplifying the re-ordering of materials from the office or on the road. HubCast Professional subscribers also receive preferred pricing ensuring users get great in-market pricing no matter where in the world they deliver print. File verification in HubCast Professional ensures that each file uploaded to the library is press-ready, guaranteeing easy and confident reordering.

"HubCast's Cloud Print Service is definitely about turnaround time and cost savings," says Julie Perino, director of marketing, Cloud9 Analytics. "They provide next day service, which is very difficult to get from a local printer. With the nature of our business, and where we are as a company, we need the kind of flexibility HubCast offers."
