Canon Solutions America, Aleyant Collaborate for W2P Solution; Host Graph Expo Breakfast
MELVILLE, N.Y. — September 7, 2016 — Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., today announced its collaboration with Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry. Canon Solutions America will offer the Aleyant Pressero cloud-based, Web-to-print ecommerce solution to support the company's production print solutions portfolio, featuring Canon imagePRESS and varioPRINT digital presses. Included with Pressero is Aleyant eDocBuilder, a Web-to-print variable data publishing (VDP) personalization and online design system. Aleyant's solutions leverage responsive, cloud-based delivery of Web-to-print ecommerce, variable data, and print job management features and options to create a robust, scalable job submission solution at value-driven prices.
This release marks the first time Aleyant and Canon Solutions America have worked together to offer a cloud-based online storefront solution to production print customers. Targeting Canon Solutions America's commercial print and in-plant Central Reproduction Department (CRD) customer base, Pressero brings an unequaled level of features and functionality at a fraction of the price of competitive solutions. Due to Aleyant's cloud-based delivery strategy, not only is the overall cost of the solution less, but additional IT costs beyond the cost of a PC with a secure internet connection are eliminated.
"We are pleased to be selected as the Web-to-print ecommerce solution for Canon Solutions America," said Greg Bane, channel sales manager for Aleyant. "The strength of our Pressero offering, combined with the performance and quality of Canon imagePRESS and varioPRINT production printers, gives Canon Solutions America customers a unique value unequalled in the market. Whether it's an in-plant print shop looking for B2B storefronts, or commercial printers requiring B2C, B2B, or a mix of B2C and B2B storefronts, Pressero offers the scale and flexibility to support the needs of a wide variety of customers at a great value."
Tracie Sokol, VP, marketing, Enterprise Services and Solutions, Canon Solutions America, also adds, "Canon Solutions America is thrilled to work with Aleyant. The Pressero offering brings unique value to Canon Solutions America customers. Pressero's innovative Web-to-print, optional variable data, and print shop management features enable commercial grade job submission solutions to be within the grasp of every customer, from large commercial printers to small printers, and from mom-and-pop quick prints to corporate in-plants. The software is user-friendly, and allows customers to set up, maintain, and update robust ecommerce sites quickly and effectively. Pressero is a win-win solution for our customers."
