Donnelley Financial Launches 3 New Online Solutions

Press release from the issuing company

NEW YORK, Dec. 11 - R.R. Donnelley Financial, a financial printer and customized communications solutions company, has added three new online products to its expanding suite of unique client services: -- FactNET, a seamless, efficient way of creating mutual fund fact sheets using the Internet. -- E.Source, a web-based system for electronic document delivery that also collects and maintains a customer consent database for compliance purposes. -- WebTraK, an online inventory management and targeted communications system that covers the entire distribution system. "To be an effective communications partner to our clients, we must be able to offer customized solutions that meet their changing needs,'' said Jan Bowen, vice president of customized communications solutions for R.R. Donnelley Financial. "All three products make online resources more efficient, while delivering a positive return to our clients' bottom lines.'' As the latest additions to R.R. Donnelley Financial's Customized Communications Solutions (CCS) business, FactNET, E.Source and WebTraK help to create, manage and deliver compliance and marketing documents for mutual funds, diversified financial services and insurance companies with greater efficiency and accuracy. FactNET allows clients to create, manage, review, input, edit and approve the content of their mutual fund fact sheets via the Internet. R.R. Donnelley Financial recently incorporated FactNET for a financial services client. This enabled the company to create, produce, print and deliver its fact sheets for more than 70 mutual funds within a 20-day cycle, and PDFs for web presentation within 10 days. This was a significant improvement over its former 90-day cycle. Moreover, this client saw a 75% reduction in the resources formerly devoted to updating, inputting and correcting the content of its mutual fund fact sheets. Meeting client needs for multiple-media communications delivery, E.Source enables financial services firms to offer their customers and website visitors the option of receiving and viewing regulatory documents, marketing materials and other communications electronically - via the Internet or e-mail. E.Source also benefits financial services firms by reducing overall print and postage costs, providing opportunities to cross-sell and up-sell, and leveraging data on multiple products. WebTraK is R.R. Donnelley Financial's comprehensive information control solution facilitating fast, accurate and efficient management of multiple-version jobs, inventory control and order assembly, as well as customized, print-on-demand fulfillment. The solution keeps track of each process and function, providing online or paper reporting throughout each step. Any communications developed by FactNET or for E.Source can be sent directly to WebTraK for fulfillment, delivery, and inventory control. Adds Bowen, "These solutions are based on standard industry technology, are accessible through any common web browser and are backed by R.R. Donnelley's long-standing quality assurance and state-of-the-art e-security. No hardware or software installation is required beyond the ability to connect to the Internet -- adding to our clients' convenience.''
