Mimeo Doubles International Customer Base in Last 6 Months
Press release from the issuing company
March 23, 2001 - Mimeo.com, Inc. announced today that its international business service, enabling overseas corporate customers to print and deliver documents to their U.S. clients and counterparts, has grown more than 100% over the last six months. The significant increase in overseas activity substantiates the viability and emerging global need for the reliable, high-quality, on-demand document production service that Mimeo offers to multinational corporations.
As the leading provider of Internet-based printing solutions, Mimeo allows its overseas customers to print their documents domestically in the U.S. and then deliver them via FedEx® for arrival as early as 8am the next morning in select locations. Mimeo's customers not only avoid paying expensive international delivery charges by printing their documents at Mimeo's Memphis-based facility, located adjacent to FedEx's North American hub, but this solution also prevents delays that can be associated with international shipments passing through U.S. Customs. In some cases, orders submitted across international datelines for delivery to the U.S. can arrive at the destination before the order was placed in the country of origin. Furthermore, with the ExactPrintsm software, Mimeo assures foreign clients that all international characters and formats will be printed correctly, without font substitutions or reformatting.
Mimeo customer Peter Meier, Director of Information Systems and Vice President of the Eastman Kodak Company (European, African and Middle Eastern Region), is based in Geneva, Switzerland. In constant communication with his corporate headquarters in Rochester, NY, Mr. Meier comments, "Mimeo is an invaluable tool in helping me communicate more effectively with Kodak's U.S. offices. I was very impressed with the convenience and ease-of-use of the ExactPrint software, and the virtual print proof feature which lets me view exactly how my document will be printed - ensuring that it is produced according to my specifications every time."
Bryan Bogensberger is the president of Canada-based MarketingIsland.com, a business-to-business solutions provider for corporations who want to optimize and better manage their internal marketing process. "The convenience and quality of the Mimeo service easily surpassed our expectations for our own internal on-demand print requirements. We were so impressed by the service that we have integrated Mimeo into our marketing solutions," said Mr. Bogensberger. "Mimeo's quick-turnaround and premium printing is an ideal addition to our services as it compliments our efforts to improve a company's internal process, deliver quality and reduce excessive cycle times."
