Rochester, New York, October 20, 2004 - Rochester Software Associates (RSA) announced today that WebCRD, its browser-based print job submission and production management solution, now speaks fluent French. The entire family of WebCRD products has been localized and made multilingual in French and English, including all the optional value-add modules and product documentation.
A single WebCRD server can support multiple languages, and even multiple variants of a single language, further supporting customers who wish not only to brand their online print job ordering system, but who also need to change text anywhere in the application to conform to their existing internal business processes.
The first multilingual French/English WebCRD license was purchased by a government print center in Québec, Canada. WebCRD not only met the customer’s language requirements, but also offered essential functionality for online print job ordering, including a PDF-based print workflow, catalog ordering with access control for reprints, real-time LDAP authentication, and full print production management. The fact that WebCRD runs on a Sun platform was another critical selling point for the customer, who has strict IT security standards.
Multilingual WebCRD is generating strong interest in Canada and France,” said Dave Vanable, WebCRD Business Development Director. “With the combination of multilingual support and complete application localization, RSA anticipates continued significant business activity in the fourth quarter and into 2005.”
