PITTSBURGH, May 8 -- Printcafe Software, Inc., the operating system for print, today announced that it has signed an agreement with CNA Financial Corporation, a leading global insurance organization serving businesses and individuals with a broad range of insurance products and insurance-related services. Under the terms of the agreement, CNA will use Printcafe's EnterpriseSite to drive its global print spend management strategy. The agreement follows the successful completion of a pilot program in December 2002. CNA joins other Printcafe customers, such as Cingular Wireless, Merrill Lynch, AOL Time Warner, General Motors and Commonwealth Bank of Australia, in using Printcafe's print spend management and e-procurement technologies.
