Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, Aug. 26 -- Oce, a leading supplier of digital document management and delivery technology, today announced the availability of a complete recovery solution for technical document printing and scanning costs. This comprehensive solution is made possible through a new U.S. marketing agreement with Technesis, Inc., a leading provider of cost recovery software. With this solution, architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) firms and facilities management providers can reliably and effectively capture all printing, copying and scanning activity through every output device on their network. Incorporating all activity into the same system allows for single-source reporting for all print devices and controllers. "Oce-USA continues to combine our industry knowledge and the latest technology to help our customers achieve meaningful productivity gains and cost savings," said Joyce Virnich, Vice President of Marketing for the Oce- USA, Inc. Wide Format Printing Systems business unit.

Technesis solutions are also integrated with the complete line of Oce print management software, including Oce Repro Desk software, Oce Print Exec LT software and Oce Print Exec Pro software. The agreement will provide customers with tracking and cost recovery solutions that can address the needs of the small office as well as the complexities of the large enterprise. From a customer's perspective, Keath Lauderdale, Vice President of Consolidated Reprographics says, "We are very excited about the partnership between Oce and Technesis. Both solutions are integral to our facility management offerings. The combined systems will give us the ultimate solution for tracking and billing all printing, copying and even scan to file on our Oce TDS systems. It is the solution everyone has been waiting for."
