Presstek's PathWay is Key for Contra Costa County Print & Mail

Press release from the issuing company

Hudson, NH – December 11, 2008 – Presstek, Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of digital offset printing solutions, today announced that the print and mail operation for California's Contra Costa County has acquired Presstek's PathWay, an affordable, highly scalable Web-to-print solution. This complete, Web-based, end-to-end print-on-demand workflow and management solution will offer County employees the cost efficiency and convenience of buying print through a centralized service over the Web 24 hours/7 days a week.
"We are currently in a pilot with about 300 County employees," says David Gould, the shop's manager. "Our objective is to cement our position as the one-stop print shop for all county printing activities, whether we actually produce the work here or out source it.  The Presstek PathWay platform has the ability to accept ad-hoc work, as well as serve our users with a library of templates they can customize themselves for commonly printed items such as forms, business cards and stationery. By acquiring the subscription (ASP) model of PathWay, we didn't have to invest in servers or other IT infrastructure.  It made the transition very easy for us."
Once the system is fully deployed, some 3,000 employees are likely to become users. "We want to make it easy for our users," adds Gould. "Not only is the system easy to use, but by taking advantage of it for all their printing needs, they can sole-source procurement through us and eliminate the need to create and manage bids.  For work we do outsource, the County can then leverage a consolidated print volume to gain preferred pricing from our suppliers."
Presstek PathWay is an affordable, highly scalable Web-to-print solution, powered by Press-sense. This complete, Web-based, end-to-end print-on-demand workflow and management solution allows users to create, customize, order, print and deliver in one streamlined, integrated operation.  In addition to the basic PathWay platform, add-on modules are available for extra functionality, making this powerful solution scalable from small shops to large, complex operations.  PathWay is available in a stand-alone, hosted or multisite configuration.  Ease-of-entry options have a well-defined upgrade path that allows the solution to grow as the user's business grows without the need for an expensive platform change.
