Satori Labs Announces Major Print-On-Demand Initiative

Support for Oki Data Printers First Step in Company's Long-Term Strategy

SCOTTS VALLEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 11, 2007 -- Satori Labs, a leading provider of digital pen-and-paper solutions for forms automation in healthcare, announced today a new initiative to provide support for printers with Anoto print-on-demand capabilities. This strategy is unveiled with the support of a new series of laser printers manufactured by Oki Data and will soon extend to other major laser printer brands. Print-on-demand provides medical professionals with the ability to print critical healthcare records that are pre-populated with unique patient data on an as-needed basis, saving forms management, inventory and re-order costs. This gives healthcare providers the choice between the convenience and quality of commercial printing of forms and the flexibility and control offered by localized on-demand printing.

Satori Labs has incorporated Anoto digital pen-and-paper technology with proprietary forms management and workflow functionality to create FusionForm™, a breakthrough digital pen-and-paper-based forms-automation solution for healthcare professionals. FusionForm is designed to provide healthcare professionals with an instant way to create digital medical records without having to change the way they work. Satori Labs is now joining forces with Oki Data and other printer manufacturers to enable healthcare professionals to locally print frequently used forms with pre-populated information fields. This means that standard forms can now be printed from an office printer and incorporate unique, identifying data such as patient name, birth date and insurance data -- as well as the special pattern that enables the digital pen to record every stroke made. This provides increased accuracy and efficiency while at the same time creating instant and secure digital medical records.

Customers are facing increasing challenges in managing and maintaining inventories of business-critical forms. In healthcare, timely availability of medical forms drives productivity as well the quality of patient care. Print-on-demand solutions offer customers the option of printing their business-critical forms when and where they need them, without the administrative and cost overhead associated with re-ordering, stocking and managing the inventory of such documents.

"We are delighted to be working with Oki Data to support their innovative new C6100n laser printer series," states Roy Feague, founder and CEO of Satori Labs. "Traditional commercial printing and new print-on-demand technologies provide important options to customers planning their forms-requirements strategies. Integrating support for Oki Data Anoto certified printers is one more example of Satori Labs' leadership in assisting customers with forms-printing alternatives and fits in nicely with our overall print-on-demand strategy."

Institutions worldwide are clamoring to find ways to reduce the cost of data collection and processing. Using Satori Labs' FusionForm technology, handwritten information can be recognized, digitized, verified, and integrated -- instantly -- into electronic records of all kinds. Customers benefit through reduced costs, reduced data collection errors, reduced liability due to incorrect information and increased productivity and efficiency. Satori Labs' new print-on-demand strategy gives customers greater control and flexibility for streamlining business practices.
