Press release from the issuing company

New York City—March 23, 2004— Oce, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, announces PRISMAweb software, a production workflow management solution and e-commerce platform specifically designed by Press-sense to assist Océ customers in cutting costs and improving efficiency. Océ PRISMA, an integrated family of adaptive workflow software, provides the most complete, and available workflow management software solutions available today, with modules that improve workflow at every point in the printing, or reprographics process from creation through archiving and storage. Designed to fit into users’ existing environments, Océ PRISMA solutions are compatible with systems and work processes already in place, protecting users’ investments as they streamline work processes and procedures. Océ, together with Press-sense, an Israel-based software company recognized as a leading developer of web-based digital workflow and order management solutions, have jointly developed the PRISMAweb offering. The solution lets Océ customers in the commercial printing and document services marketplace give print buyers online Internet access to their printing and document-related services. As a result, companies can more effectively manage a higher rate of incoming orders for shorter digital print runs. “We have always designed the PRISMA family of solutions to add value across every stage of customers’ document workflow, and now PRISMAweb adds more productivity in a way that helps commercial printers achieve more efficient operations,” said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Digital Document Systems. PRISMAweb, developed for commercial print-on-demand and professional in-plant printing operations, complements and maximizes the effectiveness of Océ digital printers, while enabling Océ customers to realize quick returns on their investments. The printing industry today is extremely competitive, and increasingly print buyers are outsourcing jobs to reduce costs. PRISMAweb provides the supply chain integration between print buyer and print provider that is essential for profitability. “Through a joint effort with Océ, we have introduced a solution that will allow Océ customers to advance to the next level of the print-on-demand market adaptation, while maximizing the effectiveness of Océ printing devices at their disposal”, stated Shlomo Ben David, CEO of Press-sense. “PRISMAweb will allow Océ customers to process the ever-growing volume of print-on-demand jobs, and dramatically reduce the non-production related costs, while directly increasing the bottom line.”
