Online Print Shop Now Offers Custom Printed Tradeshow Collateral in Addition to Stationery Items
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 9, 2002 -- iPrint Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of online and offline marketing and customized branding solutions, today announced that Oracle Corp. is using iPrint's technology to expand its Corporate e-Print Center to include tradeshow collateral and marketing items. The Oracle(r) e-Print Center, a branded corporate print shop which iPrint launched for Oracle in January 2001, allows 25,000 U.S.-based Oracle employees access to Oracle-branded business cards, stationery items, and now, tradeshow items including customized invitations, announcements, binders, name badges, and banners.
"It's a real vote of confidence that Oracle expanded their usage of iPrint's technology to its employees,'' said Monte Wood, President and CEO of iPrint Technologies. "Our integration with Oracle(r) iProcurement continues to prove mutually beneficial.''
Using the secure, password-protected Oracle(r) iProcurement application, employees can order branded, custom-printed materials directly from their computers by 'punching-out' to iPrint's e-Print Center, designing their printed item, and then returning to Oracle iProcurement to complete the purchase requisition. The requisition is then submitted for spending approval utilizing Oracle's workflow engine. The approach simplifies the ordering process for both the buyer and the supplier, bringing efficiencies and cost savings to both companies.
"Oracle's relationship with iPrint is a fine example of our commitment to supply management applications,'' said Frank Prestipino, Vice President of Supply Chain Marketing at Oracle. "We build applications to work efficiently with our suppliers, so Oracle customers can take advantage of best-in-class supplier practices.''
iPrint's e-Print Center is designed for companies that want to streamline the process for personalizing, ordering, and printing corporate stationery, business products, and marketing collateral. The e-Print Center, which is accessed via a link from a company's Intranet, is customized for each participant. The system also enables distributed ordering for companies with offices in multiple locations.
