Group Logic to Help Vio Users Transition to MassTransit

Press release from the issuing company

Arlington, VA - April 18, 2001 - Group Logic, a leading vendor of network workflow software and services to the print media industry in North America and Europe, announced today that it has developed a transition plan to migrate customers of Vio Worldwide to Group Logic's award-winning MassTransit Enterprise file transfer software, following Vio's announcement that it will discontinue its private network file transfer services by June 30. MassTransit Enterprise 4.0, a recipient of the Hot Picks recognition at the recent Seybold Seminars tradeshow, is easy-to-use, plug-and-play software that can be implemented quickly, with no disruption of file transfer capability. Vio customers have several options for obtaining network bandwidth for using MassTransit Enterprise. They can use any existing Internet connections not provided by Vio; take advantage of telecommunications providers' offers to convert Vio's T-1 or E-1 connections to Internet connections; or obtain telecommunications services with assistance from Group Logic and its distributors. MassTransit Enterprise provides all the features Vio customers are accustomed to as well as the freedom to choose telecommunications providers. It will allow former Vio customers to perform file transfer using a Web browser or hot folders, providing familiar interfaces and extreme ease of use for operators of all skill levels. Files and folder hierarchies can be transmitted using the same simple drag-and-drop operation. The product also offers email notification, logging and tracking, and remote proofing capabilities. "MassTransit is based on the assumption - fortified by market research and comments from Group Logic's customers - that companies prefer to make their own capital investment in this field," reported the March 26, 2001 issue of Seybold Report on Publishing Systems. Group Logic, a 12-year-old corporation managed by its founders, offers the stability of a profitable software vendor, a proven reliable product, and extensive customer support resources. MassTransit Enterprise's feature set and performance reflect years of input from users such as Quebecor World, Wallace Computer Services, R. R. Donnelley, and other leading print services providers, as well as leading print services purchasers such as Kraft Foods, Kimberly-Clark, and The Limited Corporation. Through an exclusive arrangement with Group Logic, MassTransit Enterprise is distributed and supported in the United Kingdom and Europe by 2Di Ltd., which was founded last year by former Vio senior executives who foresaw the current trend toward the use of affordable, customizable software solutions for managing file transfer needs. "We are delighted to offer a comprehensive, easy migration plan to enable Vio customers to simplify and take control of their digital file transfer activities," said Mike Simmonds, Chief Executive Officer of 2Di. "MassTransit Enterprise will give them a flexible solution they can tailor to their individual needs."
