Oce Selects GMC Software to Power Their New Composition Solution
Press release from the issuing company
January 8, 2004 – Boston, MA – GMC Software Technology today announced that Oce, a leading supplier of digital document management solutions, has selected the robust technology behind GMC PrintNet T Triple Suite software to power the new Océ Document Designer Advanced software. GMC is the leading global provider of open standards document design, composition and production solutions.
“Océ is known for accepting only the highest standards, so we are honored to have been selected as the solution provider for this integral component of their new Document Designer Advanced software,” said Rene Mueller, CEO of GMC Software AG. “We are proud of our productive partnership with the industry’s leading provider of production-class digital systems and solutions. The real beneficiaries are the customers who will use Océ Document Designer Advanced. They can be assured that the best technology in the business is helping to
power their solution.”
“Our commitment is to bring the highest-quality solutions to the market as quickly as possible. We turn to industry and technology partners like GMC Software, who are experts in their field, to help us streamline the process of getting the best technology to our customers,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Digital Document Systems. “GMC has established a reputation for well-developed technology that will help us increase the power and quality of Document Designer Advanced and broaden the range of solutions we offer the market. The new Océ Document Designer Advanced product is highly integrated within the PRISMA family of software to deliver streamlined business processes and seamless operation.”
Océ Document Designer shares the same robust platform that drives GMC PrintNet T Triple Suite software, providing a single environment, all-in-one tool for layout creation, structured variable and fixed data processing, and high-speed printing of personalized, data-driven applications. Design and production phases of document job flow are seamlessly linked for greater efficiency and control.
The choice of Océ to partner with GMC is reinforced by PrintNet T’s strong ratings in a recent report by Doculabs, an independent research firm. Following a rigorous analysis, Doculabs noted that the software’s graphical design environment greatly simplifies the development and conversion of document applications, templates, and logic. As a result, organizations can quickly migrate from legacy or disparate systems to a common platform, while minimizing programming requirements. With a single solution, organizations can more easily address their transaction, promotional and one-to-one communications applications.
Océ Document Designer Advanced is part of the Océ PRISMA integrated family of adaptive workflow management software. Océ PRISMA software solutions make work flow faster and more efficiently across data center, office network, commercial printing and central reprographic environments in concert with existing resources and processes in single or multiple locations. This comprehensive document composition tool streamlines design, preparation, and pre-press activities of personalized, dynamic documents for maximum workflow efficiency, enabling users to do more with less.
The software also helps companies accelerate their time to market for new applications, making them more competitive. Document Designer Advanced supports personalization through variable data printing; monochrome, highlight color and full color applications; and a range of output types. Océ Document Designer was introduced to the US market at the Xplor International Conference, and the solution is being offered on a global basis to existing and new customers.
