Zebra Print Solutions Selects Océ VarioPrint 6200 System, Océ PRISMAprepare and Océ DPconvert Software to Improve Throughput, Productivity and Reliability for Complex Applications

July 23, 2009
TRUMBULL, CT—July 23, 2009—Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced that Zebra Print Solutions has installed two Océ VarioPrint® 6200 systems and award-winning Océ PRISMAprepare™ and Océ DPconvert® software to drive document pre-press and production workflows for high-visibility training applications. The integrated Océ hardware and software solution was chosen after rigorous evaluation and testing of applications, media and equipment.

Located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, Zebra Print Solutions is a full-service print provider that specializes in rapid turnaround of complex, high-volume marketing and training materials requiring a high level of quality, accuracy and reliability. The service portfolio includes design, pre-press, digital and offset printing, bindery services, CD and DVD replication, archiving, variable data printing, mailing and fulfillment, advertising specialty items and customer printshop management.

Accelerated pre-press workflow with Océ PRISMAprepare software

Given the firm’s intense focus on quality, accuracy and process efficiency, Zebra Print Solutions selected Océ PRISMAprepare document preparation software to streamline job definition, preparation and proofing, quickly make global changes to complex jobs, and simplify tab production and updates. “Our clients consider one defect in a thousand to be far too many. At the same time, many of our jobs must be turned around in 24 hours or less,” stated Patrick DiLeonardo, President, Zebra Print Solutions. “With Océ PRISMAprepare software, we can construct, define, proof and benchmark an entire job ahead of time. So, when the client says go, all we have to do is print.”

Océ PRISMAprepare software is an all-in-one solution designed to speed up job preparation, making it easy to perform prepress tasks like creating booklets, impositioning, color splitting and merging, and adding trim marks for complex jobs. Users can preview every step in the preparation process on screen, eliminating the need for hard copy proofing, while making it easy to assign media attributes, define tabs and tab captions, create inserts, add blank pages and more at the click of a mouse. Based on Adobe® PDF technology, Océ PRISMAprepare software recently received the Poligrafia exhibit Gold Medal award. Océ PRISMAprepare software has already earned a number of awards, including a 2008 Nielsen Norman Group award for the ten best-designed applications in 2008 and an IF Design award for usability.

 “With Océ PRISMAprepare software, Zebra Print Solutions has a comprehensive tool to streamline time-consuming manual tasks and complete jobs in less time, at a lower cost, while maintaining high quality standards,” said Eric de Goeijen, Vice President, Product Marketing, Océ North America, Production Printing Systems division.

Zebra Print Solutions implemented Océ DPconvert software to convert a huge library of Xerox® RDO files, along with their DigiPath® and Freeflow Makeready® job tickets into open-standard PDF file formats. This allows them to open up their printing possibilities and migrate away from proprietary data formats.

High-speed digital duplex black & white printing
Zebra Print Solutions needed new digital duplex printing systems capable of handling growing volumes quickly, as well as the coated stock and pre-punched media often required to produce complex training materials. The firm selected two Océ VarioPrint 6200 digital duplex systems, part of the award-winning Océ VarioPrint 6000 family, the world’s most productive digital duplex printing systems. "We are always looking for ways to improve our client offerings by providing the most advanced technologies," said CEO of Zebra Print Solutions, Charlotte DiLeonardo.
