PROOF-it-ONLINE Selected by Apollo Press as Technology Partner
Press release from the issuing company
CARY, N.C. – Feb. 13, 2007 – PROOF-it-ONLINE, the leading provider of online proofing and approval management technology, today announced that the company was selected by Apollo Press, a full-service print manufacturer, as the online proofing technology partner to support printing services for one of the country’s largest universities and healthcare providers. Together with a leading printing distributor, Apollo will deploy PROOF-it-ONLINE’s Agility solution to streamline the proof approval process for the university/healthcare provider’s high-volume forms printing operations. Agility is designed to meet the specific proof approval needs of enterprise-level companies requiring a high-volume, integrated, custom approval technology.
According to Barbara Deaver, Apollo vice president of sales and marketing, “PROOF-it-ONLINE offers an intuitive proven solution. Our recognized market leadership, combined with PROOF-it-ONLINE’s technology, created a solid partnership and proposal and became an integral part of winning this account.”
In response to the university/healthcare provider’s request for proposal (RFP), Apollo and their distributor partner were tasked with incorporating an online proofing system that provided documentation capabilities, along with the ability to manage a broad spectrum of communications into their service offerings. PROOF-it-ONLINE’s Team Track feature, which provides a method to post proofs online for various intermediaries who can then route the proofs on to their clients for final review and approval, was a key component in the selection process.
Deaver added that the decision to select PROOF-it-ONLINE came in part as a result of Apollo’s recent experience using the technology. “Our hard and soft cost savings and response time improvements have been significant,” Deaver explained. “Even for complex, four-color jobs, we use PROOF-it-ONLINE’s technology for prepress. With PROOF-it-ONLINE, we can provide a value-added service that enhances our leadership position in terms of response time, affordability and service to our customers.”
“We’re proud to be associated with Apollo Press and their business partnership community,” said Victor Watts, senior vice president of sales, for PROOF-it-ONLINE. “Apollo’s drive to deliver premium service and tools that help customers succeed complements our approach to business relationships. Our success with Apollo once again validates PROOF-it-ONLINE as the industry’s premier proofing technology used by printers and other creative services companies to improve workflow, meet deadlines more readily, reduce expenses and improve overall customer experiences.”
