System to Dramatically Reduce Cost of Branded Materials to Horizon Bay Communities
KIRKLAND, Wash., June 11 -- ImageX, Inc., the leading provider of online solutions for distributing, managing and producing sales and marketing materials, today announced it has deployed its Channel Marketing System to Horizon Bay Management, LLC, a national seniors housing company.
Horizon Bay will use the ImageX Channel Marketing System to realize dramatic cost savings by publishing community-specific information online, reducing the need to print those items. Each community has unique material needs due to state regulations, property amenities and property-specific information, which require frequent updating. Community representatives can now go to a secure website to either download digital files or order printed versions of the most current sales, marketing, or human resource information.
