Prism Software Announces DocForm v3.0

Press release from the issuing company

LAKE FOREST, Calif.--July 1, 2003--Prism Software Corp., today announced the introduction of its latest version of DocForm v3.0, a low cost, powerful variable data printing and electronic forms application. DocForm has achieved both rapid market adoption and site installations, and it has been easily and cost-effectively utilized by all size companies, from Fortune 100 to mid-size, and to all major industries including financial, distribution, educational, health care, and insurance. DocForm is used for improving and personalizing business documents, reports, and communications. This new version includes enhanced processing and design features targeted at high volume business environments such as Data Centers, Central Reprographic Departments (CRDs) and Print Shops. DocForm continues to break new ground by providing these new features at an exceptional value for the rapidly growing variable data printing market. DocForm is an intuitive, easy-to-use software application for the quick design of professional business documents, forms, and reports that improves communications with a user's customers, partners, and employees. Using DocForm improves the visual appeal of documents, speeds project development, provides valuable and powerful one-to-one customer communications, avoids costly reprogramming on existing enterprise systems, and eliminates costly preprinted forms. DocForm version 3 now offers a dual architecture to provide both printer-based and server-based document processing within a single application. This unique feature is important to a customer as it provides greater document print and distribution options. DocForm offers this option for both Postscript and PCL printing by having the variable data merge with the digital form overlay directly on the printer. The new printer-based processing option provides high volume printers, such as Data Centers and CRDs, the ability to print even graphically intensive, complex print jobs at the rated speed of their production printers. Corporate and enterprise customers using server-based processing will continue to enjoy the ability to drive MFPs and mid-range devices at rated speed with the ability to compose documents at the server level and dynamically route them to any printer on the corporate network. DocForm v3 also saves time and reduces work flow complexity -- customers no longer have to struggle to implement multiple packages or cobble together separate modules from other vendors to achieve what DocForm does natively within a single unified application. "Prism is very pleased to introduce this new product version in response to significant customer interest and demand. Our customers now have an even greater competitive advantage in how they strategically manage their variable data documents and dynamically route their electronic documents," said Ted Daniels, CEO of Prism Software. In addition, DocForm now includes a native and advanced word processor functionality. This allows users, through DocForm's Rich Text Formatting (RTF) word processing ability, to design complex newsletters, bulletins, brochures, and more. DocForm v3 joins the PrintConsole Pro product line in the Prism software portfolio. With the integration between the two Prism product lines, customers can now enjoy seamless integration between both their variable data processing and legacy print stream conversions. Customers will benefit by reducing integration costs, saving time, and speeding product deployments. DocForm v3.0 is now shipping to Prism's channel partners including resellers, system integrators, and printer manufacturers.
