Data-Mail Adds Océ JetStream 2200 for High-volume Personalized Direct MailSeptember 1, 2011
Océ PRISMA Workflow Software Adds Flexibility
In addition to their requirement for a faster, more cost-effective variable color printer, Data-Mail needed the flexibility to assign jobs to different machines without having to do extra programming.
Data-Mail addressed this requirement with the addition of Océ PRISMA workflow software. Océ PRISMA workflow software makes it possible for Data-Mail to do data processing independent of the output technology that they will use for the job. With Océ PRISMA workflow software, they can combine data from multiple sources into a single workflow that can be directed to the Océ JetStream 2200 system or another output device based on job characteristics and scheduling considerations.
Growth Depends on Meeting Customer Needs
Differentiating Data-Mail in the marketplace is important to the company’s future. Mandell believes that the Océ JetStream 2200 system gives them a competitive advantage, particularly in the variety of solutions they are able to offer. “Our clients can now see both the conventional side and the variable color side under one roof,” said Mandell. “We can show them multiple options for meeting their specific needs cost-effectively whatever their volumes, number of different forms, or color requirements.”
