RSA and Adobe Simplify Web-based Print Submission

Press release from the issuing company

With Integration of Adobe PDF Transit in WebCRD Rochester, New York, October 28, 2002 - Rochester Software Associates (RSA), providers of innovative digital document printing solutions that enhance productivity and lower costs, today announced that Adobe PDF Transit software is available and integrated as part of RSA’s WebCRD online print submission and fulfillment application. The combination of Adobe PDF Transit software for reliable PDF generation, integrated with the WebCRD corporate print fulfillment application by RSA, provides a complete print fulfillment and production software solution for in-house print centers and facilities management sites (typical WebCRD users are large corporations, universities, financial and government offices). Adobe PDF Transit enables users to select the "Print" command from within any application to intuitively create, review, and submit a secure, stable, print-ready Adobe PDF file to an authorized print center using WebCRD. Adobe PDF Transit simplifies PDF creation by ensuring the reliability of results while linking the job ticket and encrypted PDF submitted for production in WebCRD. Print centers can rely on the stability of the Adobe PDF submitted, and reduce preflight time and expense by as much as 50% – resulting in faster throughput, higher equipment utilization, and a reduced cost of operations. Because WebCRD is browser-based, print center services are available from any computer with network or Internet access. WebCRD supports the entire print fulfillment process from order placement and file submission through print production, including direct submission to production printers with detailed electronic job tickets that have been completed directly by end users. "Print centers using WebCRD with Adobe PDF Transit will experience improved productivity and shortened turnaround times by reducing the time-consuming make ready processes," said Don Walker, general manager, Print Workflow Products Group at Adobe Systems. "The addition of Adobe PDF Transit to WebCRD means users can expect the very best results delivered quickly, more reliably, and with lower cost." "We’re pleased to be able to offer our customers reliable PDF creation, as an extension of WebCRD’s powerful print submission and fulfillment capabilities," said Tim Kelly, RSA Sr. Vice President. "Adobe’s award-winning technology insures that our customer’s print centers will receive reliable PDF files that represent exactly what customers need, eliminating unexpected results that can occur during all-electronic workflows." WebCRD with Adobe PDF Transit is available immediately, with pricing and configuration available upon customer request.
