ASI to debut Electronic Publishing Manufacturing at Graph Expo
Press release from the issuing company
EPM combines Markzware and WAVE Corporation technology to offer a complete electronic publishing manufacturing solution at booth #4262
Woburn, Massachusetts, September 30, 2002 – All Systems Integration, (ASI) a systems integrator for the prepress industry and self proclaimed "digital plumbers," today announced they will be partnering with Markzware and WAVE Corporation to offer a solution they are calling EPM (Electronic Publishing Manufacturing), which is described as a virtual prepress, workflow and digital asset management solution aimed at reducing or eliminating the dependency on the conventional method of processing and producing prepress.
In other words, creators of digital content will now be able to create their work on their computers, and bypass the conventional prepress process, by instead having an all digital automated workflow which can be used in multiple brand management scenarios involving content generation or re-purposing (e.g., print, web, cross media).
EPM is an open API solution, and will allow for a module based design, so features and functions can be added as modules to the core system to augment functionality as an organization grows or gains/requires greater control of their operational data manufacturing situation. Due to its open architecture, users will immediately appreciate the fact EPM brings together once disparate processes under a single friendly GUI interface which offers user defined workflows.
Ease of use and management, security control, time saving were four of the leading benefit characteristics which define EPM. Additional product benefits include the ability to collaborate in a digital environment seamlessly and without conventional digital constraints (e.g., FTP password, Email password, server password, VPN password), revision and tracking control, built-in preflight and production standards, workflow standards, internet accessible, short integration time and quick ramp-up to production use.

All Systems Integration EPM is immediately available and has a retail price of $60,000.00 for an Enterprise Solution, and $40,000.00 for a Workgroup solution. All Systems Integration is the exclusive sales distributor of the EPM solution.
