Press release from the issuing company
April 25, 2002 -- Braintree, MA– GMC Software Technology’s new PrintNet OS Output Server extends GMC solutions to meet the broader needs of enterprises, with advanced workflow-based automation for information processing and document output. PrintNet OS serves as an intelligent gateway between document composition tools such as the new PrintNet T Transactional Software, and output systems such as printers, archives, e-mail systems and web servers. This easy-to-use tool helps companies streamline output management processes to increase efficiency and dramatically reduce costs.
"IT centers, service bureaus and other document operations are challenged by expanding requirements for output and delivery, especially as Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP) applications gain momentum.

"Versatile PrintNet OS not only creates more choices for customers; it also makes them easier to implement and control."
