NEW YORK--Aug. 7, 2002--Mimeo, the recognized leader in on-demand print services, today announced the launch of DocCenter(SM), a revolutionary new document management system, that allows organizations to post content to a centralized digital location and provide multiple-user remote access for printing and next day delivery.
Mimeo's DocCenter will transform the way companies manage, print and distribute printed documents today. A universally accessible Internet-based document management system, DocCenter eliminates the need for costly warehousing of documents, time consuming trips to the local print center and the inconsistent quality of decentralized printing locations. DocCenter allows end users with authorized accessto order high quality digital original prints from any computer with Web access, receiving exactly what documents they need when and where they need them.
"This is a significant development in the document management and on-demand print industry," said John Lyons, CEO of Mimeo. "DocCenter provides customers with an innovative way to store, share, print anddistribute documents, providing dramatic new levels of functionality and cost reductions."
DocCenter will shorten cycle times, improve reaction capability and streamline workflow, as well as ensure higher quality and consistency of documents. The end result for the corporation will be reduced document management and reproduction costs, and speed-to-market efficiencies. All documents ordered through the DocCenter are printed exactly as the original document owner specifies, leveraging the benefits of Mimeo's ExactPrint software and centralized digital print facility.
The launch of DocCenter allows customers to:
* Grant access to their documents to an unlimited number of people, including business associates who have not used Mimeo previously.
* Set permission levels for each folder of information, giving them unprecedented control over documents, messages and brand identity.
* Have any document in the user's secure shared library be printed and bound at Mimeo's centralized digital printing facility and delivered the next day.
* Access documents through any computer via the Internet.
* Store and share distribution lists and address books.
"Our customers asked for the ability to share their Mimeo documents with a wider group of people. We solved this challenge by creating DocCenter, a universally accessible digital library where customers can provide unlimited access to their documents while maintaining control over versions, print costs and more. There is no other service that offers this kind of functionality," Lyons said. "Training departments, sales forces, financial organizations, marketing teams or any corporate department can benefit from DocCenter."
"With such a large sales and marketing team, both in the field and at headquarters, we need to provide scores of documents to assist them in doing their job," said John Sawyer, Director of Corporate & Marketing Communications at J.D. Edwards & Co. and a Mimeo customer. "Maintaining control over our message and our brand integrity is critical. DocCenter will improve our control and save us valuable time by ensuring that every professional has the right documents at the click of a button for printing, binding and next day delivery."
