The past few years have proven the validity of our Business Flow Automation strategy. The implementation of our iWay solution has moved from the pioneering early adopters into the mainstream market, and we decided it was time for a management change inside Press-sense. I will continue to be committed to the Companys success, and will be actively assisting the company and the board in any way I can."

Our Powered by Press-sense? technology has been vetted, selected by several industry leading OEMs, and deployed in thousands of end-customer environments by Xerox, HP, Océ, Presstek, InfoPrint and leading independent channels. I am committed to realizing the Press-sense vision of end to end Business Flow Automation based on an open platform, and to the strengthening of our strategic relationships through alignment, transparency and execution. I have already begun making changes inside Press-sense to reflect this new direction."
