Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK--March 9, 2004-- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. today announced the company's decision to distribute EFI Digital StoreFront Express job submission and ordering software. Digital StoreFront Express is a cost-effective, entry-level tool that enables print centers to establish 24/7 online customer service while integrating the flow of data from submission to production, effectively streamlining operations and maximizing print productivity.
"Digital StoreFront Express brings advanced job submission capabilities to production print customers," said Dennis Amorosano, director and general manager, Integrated Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "By integrating these powerful capabilities with Canon black-and-white and color production printing systems, customers can considerably streamline workflow, driving greater efficiencies and productivity."
"We are pleased to continue to work with Canon U.S.A. to bring innovative web submission and job ticketing solutions to new markets," said Frank Mallozzi, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, EFI. "With Digital StoreFront Express, jobs are already reviewed, approved and print-ready before entering the print center's workflow, saving significant time labor costs, accelerating job turn-around, and improving customer satisfaction."
Digital StoreFront Express is a customer owned and branded web-to-print system that allows print centers to serve customers via a robust, personalized interactive Intranet and/or Internet presence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A simple interface allows print customers to submit digital files from their PC or Macintosh computers, view PDF proofs of their documents for immediate review and approval, and easily enter their own job specifications for production and finishing. Once that information is entered, Digital StoreFront Express creates a job ticket and the file is automatically submitted into the print center's workflow.
EFI Digital StoreFront Express will soon be available through Canon's nationwide dealer network. For a product demonstration, please visit Canon's booth (#3105) or the EFI booth (#3119) at On Demand, March 8-10, 2004, at Javits Convention Center in New York.
