FusionPro Desktop Initiative So Successful Printable to Give Latest Upgrade to Current Users

Press release from the issuing company

Solana Beach, CA – February 9, 2006 – Just 90 days ago, Printable Technologies Inc. – industry leader providing Variable Data Printing (VDP) applications and Web to Print (W2P) workflow solutions – took a bold step reducing the price of FusionPro Desktop to $399 to accelerate the adoption of sophisticated VDP technology. Now affordable and available to any desktop user, FusionPro Desktop is all a company needs to get into the business of VDP; it is a stand alone application, no additional Printable products or services are required. “This initiative has been so successful that we want to thank the hundreds of companies that are using Printable’s FusionPro Desktop! We are sending a free upgrade link to all current users of Desktop 3.1 so they can download the latest version - FusionPro Desktop 3.2,” said Coleman Kane, president and CEO, Printable Technologies. “Our users are creating powerful personalized direct marketing pieces and merging database files up to 200,000 records. Clearly, low price does not mean low end! FusionPro Desktop is not limited or hobbled in any way and we continue to upgrade and enhance it regularly.” Kane continued, “The FusionPro Desktop User Forum and the FusionPro Knowledge Base are valuable support tools for users who are designing templates and building business rules for variable data. Membership on the FusionPro Forum has grown far faster than we ever expected; it’s a user community where members freely offer advice and support to each other.” FusionPro Desktop 3.2 – New Features FusionPro 3.2 adds functionality specifically designed for the HP Indigo user community and now generates an HP JLYT output print stream that drives all Indigo presses – the ninth print data stream included in the FusionPro products. Features all users of FusionPro will enjoy: - Imposition enhancement to bleeds handling which allows users to specify the finished size of the piece (crop area) and the bleed; the settings will override the actual size of the PDF template. Jobs “built to bleed” can be imposed with crop marks at the designer’s intended locations. - User interface available in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish on both Mac and PC. Backward-compatibility with FusionPro templates developed in all previous versions. FusionPro Desktop sells for $399 and is backed by e-mail product support, access to a knowledge base that includes a library of detailed JavaScripts, and peer support through the FusionPro User Forum. FusionPro Desktop with full telephone product support is $599. Other FusionPro Products FusionPro Desktop is the first step in a scalable, variable data printing solution. Templates created in FusionPro Desktop can be incorporated into an automated or online document creation and ordering process with FusionPro Web or FusionPro Server. FusionPro Web: Capable of merging templates, form data, database files, and images online, FusionPro Web simplifies the process of creating, ordering, proofing, and processing variable data print jobs. FusionPro Web is a powerful integrated VDP component that works in conjunction with the PrintOne Customer Center and the Printable Dashboard. When used with an auto job-ticketing workflow, orders go from shopping cart to press queue in minutes. FusionPro Server: FusionPro Server accepts templates designed with FusionPro Desktop, performs a high-speed data merge, and produces production-ready data streams with no human intervention. With a queuing mechanism that manages multiple jobs and provides automatic load balancing and auto-failover, FusionPro supports both “lights out” batch processing or – as an embedded system – can produce one-off documents.
