Battle Shaping Up Between Printers and Dotcoms Over AccessJuly 2000
One company that seems to be casting its lot with the dotcoms is Englewood, CO-based Mail-Well, which has signed a multi-year subscription agreement with business-to-business e-commerce and supply chain solutions provider printCafe.
Under the multi-year agreement, printCafe will provide custom branded Mail-Well Websites, and business and production management systems for Mail-Well's 140 printing facilities throughout North America and the United Kingdom.
According to William Guttman, CEO of printCafe, the agreement calls for printCafe to "integrate the Mail-Well Websites with their back-end information systems to provide increased efficiencies for both Mail-Well and its customers."
"With printCafe, Mail-Well will be the first North American printer to offer its customers a fully integrated e-commerce solution," said Paul Reilly, president and COO of Mail-Well. "Mail-Well customers will be able to design, order, estimate and check the status of jobs online, as well as collaborate among all those involved in a print job. The printCafe solution will allow Mail-Well to service its customers through one, integrated network."
