October 29, 2003 (Arlington, VA) – Group Logic, developer of best-selling network workflow software products, announced today that Berryville Graphics, a Virginia-based book manufacturer, has successfully implemented MassTransit Enterprise, streamlining their processes and improving the speed at which they transfer all of their digital files. "We were looking for a consolidated method for file transfers that would allow us to effectively manage the process," says Gary Nunamaker, Berryville's Information Technology Manager, "We found it in MassTransit Enterprise."
Prior to using MassTransit, the company worked with a number of different providers and methods for transferring files to and from their customers – everything from basic FTP and third-party service providers to manual methods such as mailing or shipping a disk. "We were finding they were not providing consistently good service," says Nunamaker. "One of the greatest values of MassTransit Enterprise is having a product that is flexible enough yet reliable enough that you can depend upon it being your main process for file transfer."
"The nice thing is there is no interface. It's all dragging and dropping of files," notes Darrell Hyde, the Systems Administrator of Digital & Prepress at Berryville Graphics responsible for the implementation of MassTransit Enterprise. "Files can be 50K for a single file, while a whole job or book cover could run anywhere from 200 MB to 2.6GB,"explains Hyde. "It is definitely a time-saving measure for us...streamlining workflows and the file transfer process."
