Press release from the issuing company
New York, NY – March 27, 2007 – Global Document Solutions (GDS), a leading supplier of integrated business communications and document processing services, introduces empowerDocs, a fully integrated user-friendly Web-to-print portal that adds centralized control, flexibility and efficiency to document creation and delivery processes. The new platform offers the ability to effectively compose, customize, distribute & manage marketing and other business communications documents while reducing end-user production costs and turnaround times.
“The empowerDocs platform allows users to optimize and streamline document-intensive business and marketing processes,” said Mark Goodstadt, Chairman and CEO, Global Document Solutions. “It is another way GDS helps customers grow revenues, reduce expenses and empower their communications.”
Marketers in industries such as financial services, insurance, technology and government sectors can gain greater control of content and messaging for sales and channel communications materials by utilizing empowerDocs to create centrally produced and branded documents. They also can easily approve orders and compile detailed reports tracking production expenses and field usage trends. To help minimize costs, a batch ordering feature allows groups of users to aggregate their orders for maximum processing efficiency.
End users such as remote sales representatives and channel partners benefit because they can simply and quickly customize a range of marketing materials from brochures and personalized pitch books to newsletters. Document drafts can be proofed and edited in real-time through the Web and subsequently printed on demand. And with automated mailing list processing and fulfillment capabilities, direct mail campaigns can be cost-efficiently executed in minutes instead of hours or days.
“The empowerDocs technology allows users to easily and effectively target their marketing materials, enabling one-to-one communications, increasing relevance, and boosting response rates,” says Charlie Corr, Group Director of InfoTrends, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm for the document solutions industry.
empowerDocs is a central component of GDS’ Content On Demand business process solution, offering complete end-to-end management of distributed collateral, including design, print and mail as well as electronic delivery.
