Archer to Offer Online ASP for Customers & National Print Network

Press release from the issuing company

NEW YORK, May 28 -- Archer Management Services, an Oce Company and national leader in document management and mailroom outsourcing services, today announced the availability of Archer Web Direct, a new service offering that enables Archer customers to submit, manage and print documents via the Internet to a national network of Archer-certified print production centers. The new service can save enterprises and organizations up to 50 percent in costs by eliminating the need to ship printed material by overnight courier or first-class mail. Through the Archer Web Direct service, users can send electronic files 24 hours a day, seven days a week to one of the Archer-certified print-production centers in major cities throughout the U.S. To save time, streamline workflow and ensure print accuracy, the service provides on-line proofing and job cost estimating, and allows users to track order status at anytime via a Web browser or e-mail updates. Archer Web Direct supports a broad range of printed material and Archer will add new print production centers to its national network based on customer requests and preferences. "Tight cost control is a priority for every business and organization today," said Mitchell Weiner, President and CEO of Archer Management Services. "The Archer Web Direct service dramatically reduces printing and mailing costs while streamlining workflow and billing procedures. By leveraging the Internet and Archer's national network of trusted print partners, Archer Web Direct is the perfect tool for a current business climate that puts a premium on quality, speed of service and low costs." Using any standard Web browser, Archer Web Direct offers a host of features to streamline and deliver print orders to remote locations. The service allows authorized users to specify production printing and finishing requirements for each document, and updates job status for each step in production. It offers a simple user interface and customized pull down menus based on available production center attributes such as media, finishing and packaging. Detailed reports that outline production, usage and billing data provide useful information for departmental cost allocation or per use billing. For periods of peak production, such as tax season or large business and organizational projects, the Archer Web Direct service can be used to reduce the need of costly on-site production equipment. The service also makes documents available at the location of need faster, as print production takes place where documents are needed rather than where they are created. The Archer Web Direct service is part of the Archer at Work suite of products and services. Archer at Work offerings include: Archer Print on Command software, the Archer Web Direct service, Archer Client Services Information and Oce Office Exec™ software.
