Kemtek Imaging Systems Switches from Preps to Ultimate Technographics

Press release from the issuing company

Montreal, Canada, February 04 , 2003 – Ultimate Technographics Inc. and Kemtek Imaging Systems today announced a new dealer agreement for the distribution of Ultimate’s imposition and Workflow products in South Africa and other African countries. The new strategic relationship leverages Kemtek’s extensive prepress and print market experience, with Ultimate’s renowned imposition and workflow solutions to provide African customers new and innovative technology to work more efficiently. Kemtek Imaging Systems, one of Africa’s largest printing resellers providing equipment, consumables and services for prepress, auto identification systems and barcoding as well as electronic labeling and lamination, felt uncertain about the future technical and market prospects for Preps imposition. Recognizing Ultimate’s significant speed advantage with client server imposition and shipping OS X products, Kemtek confidently chose Ultimate as its sole imposition workflow provider. “We are excited to have Kemtek Imaging now representing our full line of products, says Joanne David, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Ultimate Technographics. She continues, “Kemtek’s portfolio will now offer Impostrip Solo, the most popular easy to use and low cost client-server imposition solution with its full line of Screen imagesetters, as well as IMPress, known as the first of its class for print-on-demand with the Indigo digital press.” “Imposition solutions are critical to our industry, after Creo acquired Scenicsoft we began to look at alternatives for imposition workflow, we were concerned about how Preps would evolve in this new relationship” says Vivian Rudaizky, Chairman Kemtek. He continues “It was Ultimate’s continuing success with imposition products and quick development of great features to meet market needs that motivated us to pick them as our strategic imposition partner. With our heritage in the Africa market our customers look towards us to provide the best solutions to ensure they can accomplish their work more quickly and efficiently, this new partnership will help us meet our ongoing customer-first objectives”.
