Press release from the issuing company
Solana Beach, CA - March 03, 2003 -- Printable Technologies, the leading E-business and online software provider for the printing industry, and Extensis, a leading publisher of software and tools that extend the capabilities of creative professionals, announced today that Printable is adopting Extensis PrintReady as the underlying technology powering both its standard online file transfer and PrintFlight, Printable’s online preflight application.
"It is essential to e-business in the printing industry that it be very easy for print-buyers to send files for production, and essential for printers to have as early a warning as possible of any problems with those files," said Joe Fedor, product manager for Printable Technologies. "With PrintReady powering both PrintFlight and our standard file transfers, we’re able to provide both incredibly easy file transfer to print buyers and robust preflighting capabilities to printers."
"Adoption of the Extensis solution will dramatically improve PrintFlight’s ease of use and offer better preflight reporting and file transfer features for existing customers," Fedor said. "In PrintReady, Extensis has developed one of the most powerful and user-friendly file transfer and preflight clients to date, using innovative browser technology to make sending and preflighting files as easy as dragging and dropping into a browser window. These are the sorts of features and benefits that will help make our customers online initiatives a success."
Major printers, publishers and newspapers around the world, including The Associated Press, HarperCollins Publishers, The New Zealand Herald, Primedia, and others, already have adopted PrintReady. "Making PrintReady’s features available as an integrated part of Printable’s online solution is going to make this technology even easier for printers to set up and make it accessible to an even broader range of printers – both large and small." said Joseph Schorr, senior product manager for Extensis.
