DiMS! organizing print Helps printers to increase profitability with DiMS! 700, at IPEX 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Lichtenvoorde, the Netherlands, 20 January, 2006 – DiMS! organizing print, a leading supplier of Management Information Solutions for the printing and packaging industry, will launch its new 700 software release at IPEX 2006. The key enhancements to DiMS!’ integrated ERP-print management system will enable medium to large printing companies to improve business efficiencies and increase profitability through streamlined processes at an enterprise-wide level. The company will present live demonstrations of the new software on the show floor at Hall 20, Stand # C15. Continually getting the most out of available resources by optimising processes is a never ending responsibility for the management of printing and packaging companies. Compelling challenges are likely to include: continually improving customer service to meet the growing demands of the marketplace; controlling costs; and enhancing efficiency and information reporting by integrating separate processes either within or across plants into one enterprise. Failing to meet these challenges can inhibit efforts to grow the business and maximize profitability. Burda Druck, one of Europe’s largest printers, recently purchased DiMS!’ MIS system as part of their strategic initiatives to retain and build on its position as a world class printer. According to Mr. Patrick Douglas-Meis, Production Manager, Burda Druck, with the installation of a new MIS system Burda wants to enforce clear and efficient operating procedures in all locations in order to improve their world class performance. “DiMS!’ end-to-end integration, combined with its customer-oriented workflow approach and multi-plant and multi-lingual capabilities will really improve our business across the entire organization.” DiMS! is a 100% Web-enabled software package that integrates the complete range of printing and administrative processes. DiMS! is a single solution with a proactive workflow that streamlines and automates complex business processes through real-time communication of data over the Internet from Sales, Estimating and CRM through Prepress, Production, Shipping, Invoicing and Financials. With the ability to link each segment of a company’s business together, be it on a function, plant or enterprise level, DiMS! provides unprecedented end-to-end integration resulting in reduced operational costs, improved efficiency and increased profitability. New Functionality in DiMS! 700 Following 18 months of development in cooperation with many of the world’s leading printers, DiMS! organizing print will launch its state-of-the-art new software release, DiMS! 700, at IPEX. Several of the new and enhanced functionalities are listed below: DiMS! Workflow Improvements The functionality of the iDiMS! workflow page is extended in order to make the tool even more powerful and flexible. The arrangement of the screen is now more convenient, which allows you at a single glance to see what your personal responsibilities are; what To Do’s you have for that specific day and what items you have to check in order to continue a smooth order process. Another advantage is that the standard screen setup, which contains the privileges for every available function, can now easily be personalized by each individual. Advanced Production Tracking (APT) The Advanced Production Tracking is a completely new module in DiMS!. Developed together with major print and packaging companies, the APT provides complete tracking of all production material whether raw material or WIP inventory. Its tight integration with DiMS! scheduling (iPlan) enables real- time visibility across the entire business of job status, time usage and inventory. Additional functionality includes WIP labelling and integration directly to the press (DMI) for accurate, immediate production information. Scheduling Optimization (iPlan) New functionality in DiMS! scheduling optimizes form or sheet layout automatically when moving to a different size press. In addition, a revised production estimate will be produced in order that accurate and relevant estimated/actual time and cost comparisons can be made. Packaging Estimation Wizard A new estimating and pricing model, dedicated to the packaging industry, is available. As with the other product-related Estimation Wizards, the Packaging Wizard offers a fast way to create Packaging estimates and quotes, and includes contract management.
