Fusion Systems International Announces Key Strategic Partnerships

Press release from the issuing company

Portland, OR-Monday, September 23, 2002 -- Fusion Systems International (Fusion Systems) today announced two partnership agreements with major software manufacturers for the graphics arts and printing industries.  These agreements make Fusion Systems the leading solution provider for these industries in Western North America. Fusion Systems will now be a fully licensed reseller of both Dalim Software (www.Dalim.com) and Xinet Software (www.Xinet.com) solutions.  The decision to offer these solutions fits with Fusion System's philosophy of listening to the needs of the customer before selling them a solution: "Fusion Systems is dedicated to finding the right solutions for all of our customers," Robin Michalisko, Fusion Systems' director of sales said.  "By offering the proven, powerful solutions provided by Dalim Software and Xinet, we know that our customers will be getting the best solutions and the most value for their investment." With this mission, Fusion Systems will heavily invest in building strong sales channels in North America and Europe and is undergoing a vigorous brand-building process to help educate the industry on proven alternatives to the typical pre-packaged solutions offered by other vendors: "Partnering with Fusion Systems International is a key component of Dalim Software's continued plan to increase our presence in North America," Dr. Carol Werle, Dalim Software Chief Operating Officer said.  "Fusion Systems' vast experience in the integration, training and support of best-of-breed solutions will enable them to provide a complete quality service proposition, based upon Dalim Software's innovative solutions, to leading prepress, print and publishing companies." "This strategy is being employed in order to provide the highest level of value to our customers.  Instead of just selling customers another server or another RIP, we focus on solving some of their key business challenges ... like allowing them to easily add services that generate more sales opportunities by making it easier for their customers to do business with them, or by giving them tools that automate redundant prepress tasks or significantly reduce consumable waste.  These either help them generate revenue or save them money.  Our customers like to hear that we care more about them than about selling a box of hardware or software.  Dalim and Xinet help make this all happen," explains Logan Herbert, Fusion Systems' director of business development. Fusion Systems has officially become a major regional reseller of Xinet Software solutions.  In fact, both ColorRay and DigiPage include Xinet plugin modules for key functionality and are bundled with Dalim Software products as part of several large-scale solutions.  "This will give us a tremendous package of solutions to offer all of our customers," Michalisko added.  "The technology marriage between our products and the Xinet and Dalim solutions is incredibly robust."
