InfoPrint Solutions Continues Stellar Global Momentum Delivering Flexible and Scalable Workflow Offerings

Company Showcases New Browser-Based Remote Management Offering, Windows Capabilities and Integration With New Offerings From Production Mail Solution Provider Kern at Graph Expo

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  InfoPrint Solutions Company, a Ricoh company, today unveiled InfoPrint ProcessDirector support for Windows®, browser-enabled remote access for mobile devices such as the Apple® iPad™ mobile digital device and integration with the mailFactory WorkCell from Kern, a leader in production mail solutions. These announcements mark continued market momentum for InfoPrint ProcessDirector, the industry's leading workflow automation and print management software that manages an end-to-end output process from a single point of control. 

InfoPrint Solutions will be demonstrating InfoPrint ProcessDirector's browser-based capabilities on an iPad mobile digital device, enabling full access to its GUI solution -- anytime, anywhere. From the beach to the water cooler, customers can now view and manage their entire workflow infrastructure remotely offering real-time access from anywhere with a secure wireless connection. 

Now with Windows support, the company is extending InfoPrint ProcessDirector to customers who have made a commitment to Windows as their IT platform of choice. This offers service bureaus and data center operations a cost-effective workflow platform that fits within their existing infrastructure, without requiring specialized Linux or AIX skills. InfoPrint ProcessDirector can streamline operations, improve job-level process integrity and enhance customer service, while also reducing errors and lowering costs.

In addition to these enhancements, InfoPrint Solutions is announcing compatibility between Kern's new mailFactory WorkCell inserter platform and InfoPrint ProcessDirector. InfoPrint and Kern customers have access to comprehensive high-integrity print-to-mail solutions, operated from a single point of control. Together the solution provides customers with lower acquisition and operation costs, reliable reporting and total print-to-mail management.

"Many smaller mailers are striving to create high-integrity, file-based insertion environments, but the cost associated with purchasing an inserter, inserter software, print management software and services to connect the two can be prohibitive -- with minimal return on investment," said Dave Squires, Senior Vice President, Kern. "The new Kern mailFactory WorkCell eliminates hardware and software overhead requirements needed to manage a file-based insertion environment, and shifts the burden to capabilities already built into InfoPrint Solutions' InfoPrint ProcessDirector, which has built-in print and insert management capabilities."

As a package, these offerings from InfoPrint Solutions and Kern can help mailers automate the print management, inserter management and reprint management process -- while establishing a backbone for future growth. Like the iPad-enabled remote access and IPPD support for Windows offering, this integration provides customers with tools that make workflow management faster, easier and more reliable. 

"InfoPrint ProcessDirector continues to offer customers unmatched, world-class workflow automation and print management from a Web-based interface that is easy to use, scalable and reliable," said Don Dew, ADF Solutions Manager for InfoPrint Solutions. "We're constantly driving innovations that enable flexibility, control and precise print environment management. Each of these offerings supports that goal and continues to extend the company's leadership in the ADF and workflow solution industry."
