BlueCosmos and Document Solutions partner to offer new print-on-demand solutions
Press release from the issuing company
AUG 18, 2004 Columbus, OH BlueCosmos and Document Solutions, Xerox Authorized Sales Agent, have teamed-up to offer customers an easy, innovative way to produce professional color brochures, sales sheets and other custom marketing materials. The solution combines BlueCosmos' print-on-demand software with the latest digital printing technology from Xerox.
Mitch Brown, President of Document Solutions described how the recent partnership came about. "We saw a demonstration from BlueCosmos on how they teamed with Xerox to help Bank One produce personalized documents in minutes by using new web-to-print technology. Our customers have been asking us how digital printing can improve their businesses – this technology combination is it."
Print-on-demand allows companies to print what they want, when they want it, where they need it. According to CAP Ventures, a market research firm for the digital imaging industry, documents are steadily moving closer to the end-user. Shorter print runs and the requirement for faster turnaround, make traditional workflows inefficient and expensive. "We certainly see customers who want more control of the production process and they like the lower cost and time-to-market advantages that print-on-demand offers," Brown said.
Bob Jump, President of BlueCosmos explained how the software and hardware combination works. "We put all of the needed content, logos and images in a database. Customers log-in to a secure web site and from a simple point-and-click menu, create one or more customized publications based on their needs. In seconds, we produce a proof and in one click, deliver it to a Xerox printer to be professionally produced."
Xerox and BlueCosmos have a ten year history of working together to provide joint services to the financial, healthcare, insurance and government markets. Bob Jump is currently speaking at Xerox Innovate04 seminars across the U.S. and Canada on the power of one-to-one marketing.
BlueCosmos is a leader in creating personalized, relevant communications. They work with marketing, print and technology teams to create strategic one-to-one initiatives.
Document Solutions is an Authorized Xerox Sales Agency. The Principals of Document Solutions have over 50 years industry experience and supply the full line-up of Xerox products and services, from desktop to production.
