Press release from the issuing company
3/9/01 (WhatTheyThink) Printium, a leading E-Commerce platform for the printing industry in Germany, is to announce the release of a new print management software in April. The new software offers print buyers a private site, which enables them to specify print jobs, get direct price indications for budget calculations, send out print jobs within their specific print pool, submit orders and follow the actual status of an order any time. A unique tool within the new software is the PrintiumCalculator which gives print buyers a live price indication for the majority of print products fulfilling the need for short notice budget calculation with no concrete print job.
