WAM!NET to exhibit inter-enterprise JDF workflow solution at DRUPA 2004

Press release from the issuing company

London, UK – April 15, 2004 – WAMNET, a division of SAVVIS Communications and provider of content management and distribution services, today announced it will demonstrate its new JDF solution, WAM!NET Direct! JDF, for automated digital content distribution, in the CIP4 JDF Parc (A33, Hall 4), at DRUPA 2004. WAM!NET will also be part of the NGP stand (B22, Hall 4). Using WAM!NET Direct! JDF, customers can automate digital distribution of JDF files through the WAM!NET/SAVVIS global network to fully maximise the efficiencies of an end-to-end production workflow, between internal organisations and external partners. WAM!NET Direct! JDF instructions will be interpreted by WAM!NET, and the content automatically sent to the specified destinations as defined by the JDF job ticket. If the customer's destination device is JDF enabled, the content will be placed in an accessible location and notification automatically sent to the device that the content has arrived. This can then be retrieved and routed in accordance with the specified JDF instructions. If the destination is not JDF enabled the content may be retrieved in a manner consistent with the customer's current destination workflow. All partners and vendors of WAM!NET customers can function on the same platform and take part in a global JDF digital workflow. With complete end-to-end production workflow solutions, an extended ‘community' of cooperating companies can share a single platform to collaborate more effectively and accelerate the workflow – ultimately resulting in faster time to market plus quicker and more profitable revenue streams. "WAM!NET, since our founding, has been focused on automating workflows for the print production industry," comments Tim Daly, Market Director, WAM!NET Europe. "What is unique about WAM!NET is our ability to deliver shared services, applications and infrastructure across multiple enterprises connecting the print production community. This will be critical to successful JDF implementations."
