Leading document solutions company in North America adopts automated production tracking software to eliminate inserting errors and meet strict document compliance guidelines.
Westford, MA – Ironsides Technology, a leading provider of automated production tracking software for the printing, mailing, fulfillment, and packaging industries, today announced that DMM, Inc., a leading document solutions company headquartered in Maine, has selected Ironsides APT™ (Automated Production Tracking) software to ensure 100 percent document integrity of printed communications across multiple production lines, equipment and locations.
“More than ninety percent of the work we produce is mission critical communications for healthcare, insurance or financial services customers that requires strict adherence to regulatory and compliance guidelines,” said John V. Cloutier, CEO and President of DMM, Inc. “In today’s market, anything less than 100 percent end-to-end document integrity puts our business and our customers at risk. Our investment in Ironsides APT will allow us to operate more efficiently and provide our customers with the assurance that all of their jobs have been assembled correctly and are fully compliant with industry regulations. We see this as a competitive differentiator that will help us retain, as well as, win new business.”
DMM’s automated mail insertion process utilizes a combination of 2D and Intelligent Mail Barcodes (IMB) to uniquely identify customer documents. The company plans to incorporate Ironsides APT software and camera technology into their workflow to eliminate any possible insertion errors and provide full document integrity for each individual mail piece, including implementation of an automated reprint process. DMM will install Ironsides APT and cameras on nine inserters and three hand fulfillment stations. This enables DMM to extend the life of its existing equipment and focus on its recent acquisition of Canon Océ VarioPrint i300 inkjet color digital press without having to incur additional capital expenditures.
“It was clear from the start that Ironsides Technology was the best partner for DMM – the team truly understands our market, business and challenges,” Cloutier continued. “The Ironsides APT solution is unique in that it verifies output integrity, which is what our customers want. Plus, Ironsides APT offers robust real-time reporting and data analytics to help with job tracking and costing. This will allow us to understand our throughput per line so we can improve processes, reduce costs and add to our profitability.”
“We are excited to work with DMM and help them meet 100 percent distribution compliance,” said Bill Riley, President of Ironsides Technology. “In the highly competitive print service provider market, it’s a pleasure to work with companies like DMM who are embracing the benefits of inkjet technology and output management systems like Ironsides APT in order to meet demanding customer requirements and grow their business. We look forward to helping DMM get the most out of their investment in Ironsides APT.”
