Press release from the issuing company
CHICAGO (Graph Expo) - October 18, 2006 - Quark Inc. announced today that R.E. May Inc., a print service provider offering innovative solutions in output and customer service, has chosen GLUON applications powered by QuarkXPress Server to create Web-to-print applications.
R.E. May is now able to offer clients custom self-serve Web portals that reinforce brand identity by making design and print components available through the GLUON and Quark technology solution. In addition, R.E. May can provide existing prepress clients the ability to proof jobs online and download print-ready files on demand.
John Pangrace, vice president of R.E. May, said, "We are expanding our business by making it easy for us to implement solutions for our clients while giving them greater control of their design. That means our clients can use more of the flexibility of a Web interface to enhance their advertising, marketing, and printing.
"We are dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality print output, and QuarkXPress Server - based on the industry-standard design layout tool, QuarkXPress - enables us to do that," Pangrace said.
Working with QuarkXPress Server and GLUON's HyperTemplate and HyperRender XTensions modules, the system transforms QuarkXPress documents into Web-based templates, enabling on-demand customization of marketing and advertising materials by multiple remote users to simplify the creation of on-demand creative communications.
The Web-enabled, template-driven capabilities of QuarkXPress Server empower R.E. May customers to create customized marketing material and high-quality branded promotional output - all through Web interfaces. On the output side, companies in the print industry can implement successful Web-to print applications to fuel growth of their short-run color business.
The solution was implemented in just one week, allowing R.E. May to offer its clients the benefits of dynamic publishing: Producing jobs more efficiently and cost-effectively. One R.E. May client, an advertising agency, is using the solution to create an on-demand Web site for a motorcycle company. Harnessing the power of QuarkXPress Server, the GLUON solution empowers the motorcycle company's network of 500 dealers to customize and localize branded marketing materials based on local buyer demographics.
"We are ecstatic to work with GLUON in order to take dynamic publishing to the next level for R.E. May and their clients," said Eric Silver, partner manager for System Integrator and OEM solutions at Quark.
