BOCA RATON, FL—October 22, 2003—Oce, a leading provider of production-class digital printing solutions, today announced the availability of MICR output support on the Océ VarioPrint 5000 cut-sheet digital printing system. This important functionality is enabled through the exclusive Océ Quick Change Developer Station (QCDS), an innovative toner changing technique offered on many Océ systems. It takes just minutes for an operator to replace one QCDS module with another, incurring minimal downtime, mess and complications. With the flexibility enabled by QCDS, the same printer may also be used for other applications such as CustomTone highlight color, when MICR printing is not required. “Océ is committed to providing customers with versatile, upgradeable solutions that are productive, long-term investments. With easy-to-use QCDS MICR functionality, as well as multiple options, speed upgrades, and other output choices like CustomTone highlight color, the Océ VarioPrint 5000 production-class solution now provides the broad flexibility for an investment that works today and tomorrow,” stated Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Printing Systems USA, Inc. “Combined with Océ’s PRISMA software solutions, the Océ VarioPrint 5000 printer seamlessly supports the full variety of workflows that customers need, including MICR applications like check printing. These benefits are underscored by an ongoing dividend over time—the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership.” The workhorse Océ VarioPrint 5000 printer is ideal for MICR applications such as checks, pre-authorized drafts, bankcard checks, coupon payment books, and deposit books. Users in a wide range of industries including banking and financial services, insurance, service bureaus and direct mailers gain significant productivity benefits from the printer’s reliable, versatile performance. On-demand printing of high-quality MICR output helps organizations save time and eliminate the costs and risks of storing and transporting preprinted checks and other negotiable documents that can be damaged or stolen. The Océ PRISMA architected family of workflow management software solutions gives the Océ VarioPrint 5000 printer more flexible connectivity to help multi-vendor print environments streamline document management for improved cost-effectiveness and shorter time to revenue. Océ PRISMA software automatically handles all of the data streams encountered by digital print operations, enhancing the inherent flexibility of the Océ VarioPrint 5000 system to handle a wider variety of applications, including MICR. As part of a complete solution, the Océ VarioPrint 5000 printer delivers the application versatility and cost-effective operation that define production-class performance. The solutions’ long-term durability, greater ease of use, and Océ’s best-in-class service result in rock-solid reliability that reduces the risk of downtime and keeps business running more smoothly.
