Oce and Elixir Announce Multi-Channel Output Solution

Press release from the issuing company

NEW YORK -- April 23, 2002 -- Oce Printing Systems USA, a leader in digital document management and delivery technology, and Elixir Technologies Corporation, a leader in innovative document solutions, today announce a new Multi-Channel Output Solution which focuses on strategies for vertical markets. Combining each company’s product components enables customers to create more sophisticated transactional and graphic arts applications which can be delivered to multiple output media, including a full spectrum of printers, web and e-mail. Comprehensive document composition solutions are provided by Elixir Opus and PageMiner. Legacy applications can be repurposed to create powerful new applications. The ability to reuse data and content lets organizations preserve and leverage investments in legacy applications and delivers a rapid ROI. As document operations face a convergence of transactional and graphic arts applications, Oce PageStream and DemandStream printer families offer the flexibility needed to handle these diverse output requirements, including variable data, highlight and full color printing. Oce PRISMA document management and delivery architecture provides intelligent automation to seamlessly interpret, route and manage data streams to the appropriate output device. "The capabilities that companies need to achieve successful multi-channel output can only come from vendor partners who truly understand the full document life cycle. The synergy of Oce and Elixir products and professional services enable quick implementation of the Multi-Channel Output Solution, so customers can adopt new technology with minimum cost and time," said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Oce Printing Systems USA. "Insurance, finance, commercial printing, graphic arts and other segments need flexibility to meet the converging output and delivery demands of their customers," said Dianne Merzel, Elixir senior vice president of sales and marketing. "At the same time, they must protect valuable investments in existing legacy applications and resources. This new Multi-Channel Output Solution is the ideal answer to both needs." The new Multi-Channel Solution is being introduced this week in the Oce booth, #1300 at the ON DEMAND Show in New York’s Javits Convention Center.
