AMHERST, N.H.--Aug. 27, 2002--Pragmatech Software, Inc., the leading provider of sales effectiveness and proposal automation solutions, and Mimeo, the leader of on-demand print and delivery services, today announced a strategic partnership. The alliance affords Pragmatech's clients a highly automated, quality document production and distribution solution and offers Mimeo's customers accurate and consistent content in superior proposals and presentations generated through Pragmatech's award-winning suite of products.
Pragmatech provides innovative and intelligent web-based sales effectiveness software solutions. Its RFP response, proposal automation, and presentation generation solutions enable organizations to streamline the entire document creation process and experience increased productivity. Mimeo converts electronic files to quality hard copies, binds the documents, and then distributes them via Federal Express.
The alliance between Mimeo and Pragmatech brings together two critical and complementary services for sales and marketing professionals. The Pragmatech software allows users to easily create high-quality proposals and responses to various sales and marketing requests, but leaves the final step - printing and delivery - to the resources available to the document creator at the time. The Mimeo service will allow Pragmatech users to carry their professional document quality all the way through printing, binding, and delivery - without ever leaving the desktop.
"We are pleased to collaborate with Mimeo, the leader in printing and distributing corporate documents and presentations," said Brooke Savage, Pragmatech co-founder and CEO. "The synergy between Pragmatech and Mimeo's products provides a superior offering for end-to-end document production. This partnership facilitates a critical moment in the document life cycle - where electronic document creation meets the physical world. It enables control of the entire document generation process, from the desktop to the printed and delivered document."
"Sales and marketing professionals are among Mimeo's most avid customers," said John Lyons, CEO of Mimeo. "We believe many of our customers will find Pragmatech's software a key element in developing winning sales proposals. At the same time, we are certain that Pragmatech customers who use Mimeo's document services for printing, binding, and delivering their sales proposals will benefit from improved document quality and reduced costs."
"As technology evolves, customers want their document software to work seamlessly with their outsourced document production services," commented Keith Kmetz, Program Director with International Data Corporation (IDC). "The Pragmatech-Mimeo relationship is a good example of software and services working together to create a complete solution that is greater than its parts."
