GMC to Spotlight Hybrid Mail Solution at Post-Expo 2005
Press release from the issuing company
October 3, 2005 - Paris, France and Appenzell, Switzerland - GMC Software AG, the leading global provider of advanced document design, composition, production and process automation solutions, will spotlight their highly successful hybrid mail solution at the Post-Expo 2005 technology exhibition being held in Paris, France, from October 3 through 5. GMC representatives will be available in booth #A32 to demonstrate their revolutionary host-to-post direct mail solution that produces personalized, cost-effective B2B and B2C communications for the corporate enterprise and service bureaus, alike.
Service bureau and enterprise solutions for customer communications
GMC's Hybrid Mail System becomes part of a Total Cost of Print solution for the enterprise and service bureaus by providing an automatic, timely and cost-effective method of dealing with all corporate communications, accessible by a-click-of-a-mouse, directly from the author's desktop.
In the enterprise, the GMC Hybrid Mail System consolidates personalized communications from desktop computers and routes them to where they can be efficiently and cost- effectively processed. By electronically routing messages and communications to the most cost effective printer, at a point closest to the addressee, messages are delivered faster and at much lower printing and postage costs, than using current practices.
According to René Müller, CEO of GMC Software AG, "Instead of manually printing, addressing, stamping, sorting and mailing communications that are produced on a myriad of corporate desktops, GMC's Hybrid Mail System automatically routes communications from any desktop to a more efficient production environment that's geared to processing one-to-one communications, en-masse".
In a typical service bureau environment, GMC's Hybrid Mail System captures, sorts, routes, integrates and manages the production process of producing both desktop generated and bulk mail. The benefits of this capability are lower printing costs, faster delivery, streamlined workflow and potentially lower postage costs for both service bureaus and their clients. Hybrid Mail also provides service bureau corporate clients with an additional service - an automated, Web-to-print solution.
A single platform for printed and electronic communications
"GMC recognizes the special needs of multiple site service centers of postal organizations. Among the 20 largest service bureaus around the world, more than half of them are using world-class - ISO 9001:2000 certified - GMC software. We supply this market with integrated software solutions for faster application design, optimized workflow and process automation to produce better documents at significantly reduced cost," says René Müller.
GMC's streamlined process offers measurable benefits - lower printing costs, faster delivery and lower postage expense - for both the service bureau and their clients. Built on considerable expertise in this field, GMC's Hybrid Mail System is a based on three scaleable
- PrintNet T - variable data composition software
- PrintNet PA - business process automation software
- PrintNet Connect - connectivity solution that enables a complete Web-to-print capability.
GMC PrintNet software drives multiple document-related applications from a single platform. Unlike some other Web applications, PrintNet users do not need separate platforms for Web and print based documents, SMS messaging, variable data document or statement processing and presentment. The PrintNet platform encompasses all of the resources to compose and drive production of both printed and electronic documents and statements. There is no need to buy separate products for print versus Web or hybrid mail applications. Since work is driven from one
central application, users don't need to understand the platform or application behind it, yet they can leverage its power for greater productivity.
