March 26, 2008 - New York - Mimeo.com, the innovator of online, on-demand digital printing for business documents and marketing materials, announced today the launch of Mimeo Marketplace, an on-demand publishing and document distribution tool that promises to revolutionize the way documents are produced and distributed online.
With Mimeo Marketplace, it is now possible to create a customized online storefront, produce and place documents into it, and let others do the ordering.
Mimeo Marketplace gives publishers the flexibility to mark up the price of their documents thereby creating a new revenue stream. It also reduces resource and personnel requirements necessary to distribute documents because now businesses won't have to handle orders themselves or train users on a complex interface.
"Mimeo Marketplace will change the way businesses publish, just like our original, signature platform changed the way people print," said Adam Slutsky, Chief Executive Officer of Mimeo.com. "Now, more than ever, businesses are looking for ways to save money and create revenue. Mimeo Marketplacecan transform a company's existing printing practice by turning a document center into a profit center for our customers."
Mimeo Marketplace is designed for manufacturers, learning and training professionals, franchises, retailers, and marketing departments who frequently need to produce and distribute documents to end users across multiple locations, often overnight. It allows companies to operate more efficiently by giving document users the ability to order only the materials they need through a company's online storefront and receive them as early as the next morning.
"Mimeo Marketplace is yet another example of the disruptive technology that Mimeo is creating to shake up the industry," stated Charles Pesko, Executive Vice President of Questex Media and Founder of InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, the leading worldwide market research and strategic consulting firm for the digital imaging and document solutions industry. "Putting a document purchasing capability in the hands of the end user will be a dramatic step forward in the way customers can utilize documents."
Mimeo Marketplace provides businesses with branded distribution solutions and customization capabilities. It requires no start-up costs or recurring fees, and is maintained by a 24-hour customer support team. It's fast and easy setup allows users to customize, brand, publish and update documents in real time.
