Relationship Aligns Oce's Award-Winning GIS Product Offerings With ESRI's Innovative Software Solutions to Better Meet Customers' Evolving Needs
CHICAGO, Nov. 20 // -- Oce (NASDAQ:OCENY), a global leader in digital document management and delivery systems, today announced that it has joined the ESRI Business Partner Program as a Complementary Technology Provider (CTP). As a CTP partner of ESRI, the world leader in GIS software, Oce provides end-users with award-winning hardware and software printing solutions that are complementary to ESRI technology.
Currently, Oce is the only manufacturer capable of supplying geographic information system (GIS) users with a choice of printing technologies for large format, complex images -- including full color inkjet printers, light-emitting diode (LED) monochrome printers and continuous tone digital photographic printers. Oce also offers optional scanning and copying technology for incorporating hardcopy data into a GIS. Already a recognized provider of these technologies to the GIS market, Oce will now offer its large format, GIS printing expertise with the support of ESRI.
"We are pleased to join ESRI's Business Partner Program as a Complementary Technology Partner," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Oce Wide Format Printing Systems division of Oce North America. "This will extend Oce's success in the GIS market. It also provides the ESRI user community the ability to enhance the productivity of printing and plotting their complex, often very large, images and quickly achieve the results they are expecting."
Oce Delivers Uncompromising Print Speed and Quality to ESRI Software Users
Dedicated to providing large format users in architecture, engineering, construction, design and GIS with constantly evolving hardware and software solutions to meet their changing needs, Oce recently introduced the Oce TCS500 -- the fastest, most productive color GIS print-copy-scan system available.
"Based upon the recent demonstrations that I've seen, the Oce TCS500 provides significant advantages for printing large GIS files. In particular, the large internal hard drive and Oce Power Logic(R) controller allows users to quickly manage and process large files typically associated with GIS Software," said Tom Murray, Technical Marketing Manager for the ESRI Denver Office. "Furthermore, the Oce TCS500's Dynamic Switching technology creates impressive mixed media maps where you don't have to sacrifice between text or legend quality and map image quality. In total, the Oce TCS500 helps eliminate many of the bottlenecks typically associated with moving information from the GIS into a finished map."
In addition to large format inkjet, Oce also offers two other print technologies for the GIS user. The Oce TDS line of fast, high-resolution monochrome LED printers are renown for their reliability and productive streamlining of workflow processes. For aerial photography and satellite imaging applications, the Oce LightJet(R) 430 RS digital photographic laser printer offers an unbeatable combination of speed, quality and affordability. Its geometric accuracy tolerances are capable of supporting Remote Sensing and similar high-accuracy applications.
