Dallas-Area Sir Speedy Centers First to Offer PrintMe Networks Service
Press release from the issuing company
MISSION VIEJO, Calif.--Nov. 26, 2001--Sir Speedy Inc., a leading franchisor of printing, copying and document management centers announced that three Dallas-area Sir Speedy centers, Addison, Carrollton and Richardson, are the first print providers in the United States to offer the new PrintMe Networks(TM) mobile printing solution from Electronics For Imaging.
"We are excited to be among the initial print providers to test the technology and to be the first to work with customers who send jobs through the PrintMe Network,'' said Dick Smith, owner of the Sir Speedy center in Carrollton. "In addition to working with us in person and online at sirspeedy.com, PrintMe will give our customers another convenient way to send jobs to us using their PDA, cellular phone or other wireless device.''
The three pilot centers in Dallas will offer PrintMe Networks service that allows customers to instantly print jobs to high quality color or black and white printers from their mobile devices as well as remotely by e-mail.
"We're pleased to work with Sir Speedy to introduce PrintMe technology because they have the resources and national network of locations to demonstrate the ease of this breakthrough printing solution to printing needed documents away from the office,'' said Ofer Tenenbaum, general manager of PrintMe Networks. "We're confident that the feedback from the Dallas franchisees and their customers will offer us insights that will enable us to quickly expand the availability of PrintMe Networks throughout the U.S.''
Sir Speedy's ongoing e-business objective is to provide more efficient ways for customers to do business. PrintMe Networks allows customers to quickly and easily transfer document files to Sir Speedy centers via e-mail, PCs and wireless application protocol (WAP)-enabled devices such as cell phones, e-mail devices and PDAs. Customers can be confident that a reliable Sir Speedy print provider will produce their documents to their exact specifications.
The Sir Speedy network of nearly 700 locations provides the vast infrastructure required to implement the print-anywhere technology. The PrintMe partnership with EFI is consistent with Sir Speedy's commitment to customer convenience and the company's strategic goal to continually enhance the way Sir Speedy customers do business. The Dallas pilot program begins in December with additional rollout in 2002 to Sir Speedy centers in New York, Boston, Minneapolis and Southern California.
