Doculabs Report Highlights of GMC PrintNet T Triple Suite Software
Press release from the issuing company
November 4, 2003 -- Boston, MA -- GMC Software Technology today announced that its PrintNet T Triple Suite software has successfully completed a rigorous analysis by Doculabs, an independent technology consulting and research firm. The neutral, third-party assessment gives PrintNet T high marks in a number of critical areas.
In its report, Doculabs noted that the software’s graphical design environment greatly simplifies the development and conversion of document applications, templates, and logic. As a result, organizations can quickly migrate from legacy or disparate systems to a common platform, while minimizing programming requirements. PrintNet T provides a common solution that can handle a range of output applications with a rapid, cost-effective development approach. With a single solution, organizations can more easily address their transaction, promotional and one-to-one communications applications.
“Overall, Doculabs finds that the PrintNet T Triple Suite provides a very strong solution for document design, composition and production,” said Doculabs’ president, James K. Watson, Jr., Ph.D. “The system delivers a wealth of functionality for applications as diverse as billing, one-to-one marketing, correspondence and direct mail. PrintNet T is worth consideration by any organization interested in moving away from disparate products or home-grown mainframe-based solutions for document composition and production.”
As organizations seek to improve interaction with their customers, many are challenged by the different technologies and in-house solutions they currently use. This creates complexity and solutions that are not suited to new requirements for personalization or multi-channel delivery. Moreover, the cost of transitioning existing applications to new platforms is often prohibitive. With its PrintNet T Triple Suite, GMC provides an ideal solution for addressing these issues and requirements.
“We’re extremely pleased with the results of Doculabs’ analysis,” said Rene Mueller, CEO of GMC Software AG. “Their research underscores our commitment to provide our customers with the highest quality products and services possible. PrintNet T has been in development for nearly three years and incorporates an extensive range of functionality for diverse applications and markets. More importantly, it effectively addresses the ease of use and implementation features that many comparable products promise but fall short on delivering. In nearly every recent instance where we’ve been evaluated with other comparable products, PrintNet T has been selected as the product of choice by the customer.”
Among the PrintNet T strengths and benefits cited in the Doculabs report are:
• Robust feature/functionality for diverse document composition and print automation applications
• Highly intuitive graphical interface to minimize programming and scripting
• Enables multiple types of users to participate in application development and document design
• Easy re-development of document applications on a new platform
• Support of diverse IT environments, for reduction in IT maintenance and support requirements
• Sophisticated web enablement of major functions and capabilities
