Montreal, Canada and Twinsburg, Ohio – October 6, 2004 – Polkadots Software Inc., a leading prepress workflow developer, specializing in database driven workflow automation for Harlequin RIP technology, and xpedx, a leading national distributor of printing and graphic imaging prepress equipment and supplies have signed an agreement that will see xpedx resell PrePage-it, Polkadot’s Harlequin RIP based Workflow Solution, across the United States.
“When we first saw PrePage-it we were impressed by the speed and level of functionality offered.” Comments Martin Davis, Senior Workflow Specialist at the xpedx National Technology Center, “After having the opportunity to work with PrePage-it we found that it will do everything we would expect of a high end workflow but at a fraction of the cost of what is currently on the market. As an added bonus, we can install it on the hardware configuration we chose which means we are able to provide our customers with the very best value as well as the very best performance.”
“xpedx is a valuable partner to be working with. They are nationally recognized and have a solid reputation for working with open systems while providing topnotch training and support” says Robert Dumas, Polkadots. “I have worked in cooperation with xpedx in the past and I am confident that xpedx is a partner that will help us increase market share of PrePage-it in the United States.”
The PrePage-it Workflow Solution is a plug and play, database driven solution built upon Global Graphics’ Harlequin RIP technology. PrePage-it allows users to print from any popular Macintosh or Windows applications and RIP pages up-front, saving time and detecting potential problems early in the process. It includes a wealth of compression, automation, proofing, organization and imposition functionalities. PrePage-it will be demonstrated live at GraphExpo in Chicago from October 10 to 13 on the xpedx booth #4606.
