Press release from the issuing company
MINNEAPOLIS and BATAVIA, N.Y., April 15 -- Minneapolis-based Four51, Inc. announced today that Batavia, N.Y.-based Hodgins Engraving has completed Four51's Level III Certification training and is now certified to build, implement, and maintain variable-text templates and documents for other Four51 customers using Four51's Pageflex Design Suite software.
Using Four51's Pageflex Design Suite, Hodgins Engraving plans to offer variable document creation services as a value-add to Four51 customers. Previously, variable document creation services were available to Four51 customers only through Four51 directly, or by completing Level III Certification training as a Four51 customer. Hodgins Engraving's decision to complete Four51's Level III Certification training marks the first time a manufacturer has decided to offer variable document creation services to Four51's customers as a value-added service.
"Four51's Level III Certification training and the Pageflex Design Suite toolset gives Hodgins Engraving a great opportunity to offer additional value-added services to Four51's clients," said Bob Hodgins, Hodgins Engraving's president. "And, because we're building the variable text documents and templates for the Four51 customer, we have the opportunity to make sure all of our specific production requirements are accounted for in the document that's ultimately created and posted to Four51's system."
Four51 and Hodgins Engraving recently announced that Hodgins Engraving is a Four51 Strategic Alliance Partner. Level III Certification training is one component of the two company's Strategic Alliance. According to Mark Osborn, Four51's vice president of marketing, "By building variable text documents as a value-added service, and ensuring that Hodgins Engraving's specific manufacturing requirements are built into each document, Hodgins Engraving is now in a unique position to leverage Four51 to drive even more efficiency and value-add into its customers' ordering processes."
Variable document creation services are now available to Four51 customers through Hodgins Engraving.
