CHICAGO, July 23 -- Oce, a leading supplier of digital document management and delivery technology, announced that Oce has received the BERTL's Best Award for the Digital Monochrome Wide Format Printer Range of the Year 2003. The award citation refers to the Oce TDS series printers as "the product line that delivers outstanding flexibility and functionality suitable for a wide range of wide format printing purposes."
Versatile, well designed range
According to BERTL, Oce has received this award for its versatile, well- designed range of wide format digital imaging products. These are varied enough to meet the needs of different sectors of the market, from low-end to professional-grade. The three different systems in the Oce TDS line-up have a wide range of capabilities, offering wide format print solutions for every user.
Built to last for years
The build quality and durability of the Oce products also receive praise in the award citation. "In today's 'disposable' marketplace, very few products are built to last for decades. Oce's wide format digital imaging devices are a notable exception to that rule. The company builds its products to last for years. For example, the Oce TDS800 is guaranteed for 50 million square feet or 7 years. Thanks to the use of high-grade components, the products last through years of abuse in busy print environments. For these reasons, the Oce TDS400, Oce TDS600 and Oce TDS800 are BERTL's Monochrome Wide Format Range of the Year 2003."
Commendable reputation for customer care
Reference is also made to Oce's commendable reputation for customer care. "The company is renowned for its excellent service and support, and has a reputation for solving problems that arise quickly, efficiently and to the satisfaction of the customer."
Image quality, reliability and productivity
Concluding its review of the Oce products, BERTL states that the Oce TDS400, Oce TDS600 and Oce TDS800 systems are each targeted at a different segment of the wide format digital imaging industry. "Taken as a whole, the product range is commendable for its capabilities, image quality, reliability and productivity."
The main criteria applied by BERTL in its product assessment are the quality of output, ease of use, cost and functionality. Another important aspect when considering an entire product range is versatility, in terms of how well the range meets the needs of the lowest-level users and the quality of the highest-end solutions offered.
"We are honored to be distinguished among the world's most reputable and prestigious leaders in the wide format digital imaging industry. The BERTL's Best award further underscores Oce's enduring commitment to being a customer- focused, service-driven company with outstanding products and - above all - complete solutions designed to meet a wide range of client needs," said Mal Baboyian, President and CEO of Oce-USA, Inc.
