Council Releases PrintingE, E-commerce, the Internet, and the Future of Print
Press release from the issuing company
Alexandria, VA March 14, 2002 — The E-Commerce Council (ECC), a program of Printing Industries of America, Inc. (PIA), announces the release of its newest publication, PrintingE, E-commerce, the Internet, and the Future of Print, by Ron Goldberg and Frank Romano. According to the authors, "This digital age of e-books, e-paper, e-commerce, and e-everything is forcing us to re-e-think how we will e-function in a technological e-age."
Goldberg and Romano describe how e-commerce offers printers a powerful way to enhance the value of their relationships with customers by providing them with new conveniences and a richer array of services, making it easier and more rewarding to do business with printers.
This publication presents a background into the Internet, e-commerce and related trends, but also categorizes and profiles the dot-com companies; explores the technical, customer-acceptance and rights issues of e-publishing; covers why printers need the Web and how they are conducting e-business in the industry today.
According to Lyn Johnson, chair of the ECC Steering Committee and Executive Vice President, Buchanan Visual Communications, Dallas, TX, "This publication, PrintE, will serve as both a reference and an action document for printers to develop new, or re-evaluate current, e-strategies. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the information in this book."
The book was sponsored by Fuji and Ikon and is a benefit of membership in the E-Commerce Council. For more information about how to order the book and about the E-Commerce Council, please contact Joanne Vinyard at 703-519-8170.
