Wednesday, October 29, 2003
Atlanta, GA—October 27, 2003—Oce, a leading provider of production-class digital printing solutions, today announced the Océ PRISMAsatellite Output Management Solution to help customers automate distribution of personalized information and document workflow across electronic delivery channels for local viewing or printing. Océ PRISMAsatellite software is part of the Océ PRISMA integrated family of adaptive workflow management software. Customers count on the many capabilities of Océ PRISMA software solutions to make their work flow faster and more efficiently across data center, office network, commercial printing and central reprographic environments in concert with their existing systems and work processes in single or multiple locations. Océ PRISMA software is structured to support each step of the document lifecycle through nearly 30 products in six functional categories. The tightly integrated modules provide the most investment-friendly workflow software solution available, along with complete multi-vendor integration and a process-friendly approach that allow customers to optimize the way they work, while delivering the flexibility and scalability they need to turn time into money. Océ PRISMAsatellite software maximizes control over business-critical output in mid-range EDP environments, while maintaining the personalized delivery and timing that encourage good customer relations and timely cash flow. The software solution manages the entire output process and delivers enhanced information directly to those with decision-making responsibility. “Outdated output distribution systems limit the impact of your communications and compromise the integrity of your decisions, resulting in lost revenue opportunities. By helping customers more completely automate their work processes, Océ PRISMAsatellite software lets them leverage the speed, convenience, and efficiency of their operations,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Printing Systems USA. “The software adds value and clarity to expedite dissemination of time-sensitive data, reduce call center inquiries, shorten payment cycles, and ensure that the right documents get to the right recipients on time, all the time.” Océ PRISMAsatellite software brings tools for effective distributed workflow to today’s electronic communication and delivery channels. As a result, it streamlines the distribution process and saves time and money through intelligent local processing. With Océ PRISMAsatellite software, users can print remotely to a network printer, send checks to the finance department, accelerate forms creation using electronic forms, and leverage the convenience of email and the Internet to get bills to clients on time. Users maximize their delivery options without having to invest in multiple tools to support different platforms, and they can efficiently process and control incoming data from almost every platform. Reliable, versatile Océ PRISMAsatellite software enables distribution of data to the most appropriate output device or site, such as a local printer, central print shop, remote printer or email. Broad platform support allows the software to become a custom-configured tool to meet the particular needs of each customer’s environment. Jobs and information arrive at their destinations in the appropriate format for viewing or printing, without requiring expensive, time-consuming IT programming of the host system. Relevant report information enables users to monitor the progress of production workflow and devices. Océ PRISMAsatellite software gives mid-range EDP environments the tools to support document composition and e-forms overlay applications, intelligent document flow, and output management. Océ integrates e-forms and output management into a one-server concept, providing a solution that lets customers do more with less equipment and fewer staff resources. E-forms help deliver the right messages and enhance documents to achieve critical communication goals. Streamlining document production with e-forms allows users to quickly create specific data-driven communications such as invoices, statements, student grade reports, class schedules, and transcripts. Marketers can add color and personalize documents to emphasize critical information such as overdue amounts and payment due dates. Variable data formatting and printing enabled by Océ PRISMAsatellite software add value to cash-generating critical documents and conserve resources by eliminating the need for expensive pre-printed forms and the space to store them. With the fast, intelligent processing of Océ PRISMAsatellite software, users can streamline workflow and save money without any degradation in processing power. Flexible recognition capabilities speed up workflow and reduce the need for operator intervention. Customers can choose how to distribute digital output so those jobs can be produced when and where they are needed. This significantly reduces distribution time and costs to internal and remote locations. Future-proof adaptability means operators can easily make adjustments as daily workflow requirements and priorities change. Jobs can be reprinted and redirected when necessary without IT intervention, enabling companies to do more work with less staff involvement. Océ PRISMAsatellite software will be demonstrated at Xplor printing to the new Océ VarioPrint 2090 printer at the Océ Education Pavilion.
