Press release from the issuing company

April 4, 2003 -- Dalim Software distributors and customers from across the U.S. met to discuss Dalim Software’s latest product developments and preview its powerful new workflow technologies and products planned for release in 2003 and beyond, at the recently concluded Dalim User Organization (DUO) Conference, held in New Orleans. The two-day conference attracted Dalim Software print, prepress and publishing customers, high-level users of some or all of Dalim Software’s powerful production tools including: TWiST intelligent automated workflow software, SWiNG pre-configured workflows, LiTHO image retouching and page assembly software, and FiCELLE, Dalim Software’s unique internet-based production management and job tracking system. During the meeting, Dalim Software announced that, despite difficult times for the industry in general, the company enjoyed double-digit sales growth compared to the previous year, as a growing diverse customer base of printers, publishers, corporate accounts, and OEM partners invested in the company’s products. The company also increased headcount in software development, quality control, customer service, and business development. Dalim Software also presented its vision of location-independent production rationalized central systems management, extending the idea of workflow to include production process management, connecting all functional areas of the supply chain, including: file origination, CRM, publishing, order management, scheduling, prepress, production. press, cross-media, and MIS. Dalim Software described product plans to expand by developing new products and OEM relationships, extend with new versions of DALiM FiCELLE and DALiM SWiNG, and evolve DALiM TWiST and DALiM LiTHO. The event provided the perfect opportunity for Jacques Thiebauld, Dalim Software Chief Scientist and CIP4 Advisory board member, to discuss the future of automated production and why JDF (Job Definition Format) will become the cornerstone of future business models. The meeting also saw special guest presentations from Parade Magazine and Continental Web Press, describing how the implementation of DALiM FiCELLE production systems has changed their businesses, bringing new levels of efficiency. Two new DUO officers for 2003-2004 were elected: Scott Pellicone, North East Technical Director of Que-Net Media, a member of the Quebecor World Group, was nominated as President, while Ken Kingston, Parade Magazine Production Manager was elected Vice President. “One of the key differentiators separating Dalim Software from other companies is our commitment to ultimate customer satisfaction through development of the most flexible, highest-productivity open systems applications possible”, notes Dr Carol Werlé, CEO, Dalim Software, “We were able to demonstrate a clear product path that includes extremely sophisticated and forward-thinking solutions for our customers. This healthy exchange of ideas is reflected in the aims of the DUO organization, which are to increase members’ knowledge and understanding of Dalim Software products, as well as the company itself. We hope that future meetings prove to build on the successes of this year’s event.”
