Boca Raton, FL – March 2, 2006 -- Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, announces that Océ marketing services customer, One to One Gulfcoast, has been selected for a prestigious 2006 PODi Best Practices Award for its personalized fullcolor fundraising campaigns for the Out of Door (ODA) Academy, an independent school in Florida. The campaign used 100 percent-consistent full-color Océ CPS digital production printers and sophisticated personalization to boost fundraising results to record levels.
The Best Practices Awards honor innovation and excellence in digital print strategies, and winners were announced February 28 at the PODi Applications Forum in Las Vegas. One to One Gulfcoast was the first to be selected in a new category for small businesses.
One to One Gulfcoast has helped non-profit customers raise millions of dollars in contributions using the power of Océ digital color production printing and relevant personalization. This powerful combination of personalization and effective color helped the ODA campaign increase results 42 percent over 2003-2004 giving, with 82 percent participation by parents -- both school records. One to One Gulfcoast improved the ROI of their client’s campaign budget by getting more donations per campaign dollar spent.
One to One Gulfcoast relies on Océ CPS full color digital printing systems to produce these highly effective campaigns for a variety of Florida nonprofits. “We could not do it without the Océ CPS systems,” said Brian Weiner, president of One to One Gulfcoast. “Our two Océ CPS 900 full color digital printers and one CPS 700 system print hundreds of thousands of pages annually with complete image consistency and quality and without any problems or delays. As a result, we can focus on our customers’ business needs without worrying about the quality of the printing.”
“We are thrilled to see One to One Gulfcoast receive this well-deserved recognition for their outstanding results using job-appropriate digital color from Océ,” said Joyce Virnich, vice president of marketing, Océ Digital Document Systems. “They are leading the way for companies that want to change their business models and increase their value to customers through new services like offset-quality digital color and personalization. We are pleased that the total color consistency and high performance of the Océ CPS products can support the demands of their challenging business.”
More than 2,000 pieces were printed on the CPS systems and mailed as part of the ODA Annual Fund campaign. The vibrant, full-color digital output greatly enhanced the appearance of the solicitation, and more relevant personalization made a greater impression on recipients. Rich graphics, smooth bleeds and vivid gradients help make the post cards, donor cards, personalized letters and other materials stand out and motivate response. With the 100 percent consistency and high quality of the Océ CPS systems, One to One Gulfcoast has the right technology and job-appropriate color output to help their customers maximize their fundraising budgets.
