Oce Announces TransPromo Application Development Services to Accelerate Customers' Personalization Strategies

New offering includes state-of-the-art technology and development expertise

TRUMBULL, Conn. and BOSTON, March 4 / / - Oce, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, announces TransPromo Application Development Services designed to help customers maximize emerging TransPromo opportunities by turning statements into revenue-generating documents.

According to market research firm, InfoTrends, 95 percent of transaction documents such as invoices and monthly statements are opened and read, so they provide an excellent vehicle for reaching customers with other types of messages and information (1). InfoTrends also noted that studies have shown that on average, a consumer will spend one to three minutes reviewing a bill. In addition, consumers continue to have a strong preference for direct mail, largely because paper-based communications are minimally intrusive and easily managed. These trusted documents can be enriched by the addition of relevant personalization and marketing messages. Yet these powerful "trans-promotional" or "TransPromo" applications can be complex to develop and launch. They require a full understanding of variable content database management, dynamic application layouts, white space management and experience with digital color printing.

Through state-of-the-art printing resources and application development expertise, the new Oce TransPromo Application Development Services will help customers overcome these challenges and deliver highly effective TransPromo communications. A full range of TransPromo services and focused resources will be offered through Oce and its professional partners, including NEPS, LLC and Art Plus Technology.

"Oce has a long history of leading the convergence evolution that laid the groundwork for today's TransPromo applications. With this new service offering, we are positioned to help our customers make the crucial transformation from pure transaction documents to TransPromo marketing communications. At the same time, our latest line up of production-class print systems and workflow software complete the offering to help customers maximize their investment and make the transition as quickly as possible," said Mal Baboyian, President, Production Printing Systems, Oce North America.

The TransPromo Application Development Services will help customers achieve rapid prototyping through capabilities such as:

o Application development and design optimization for fastest production
o Campaign and statement messaging strategy for effective personalization
o Application design and usability testing to validate concepts
o Post-implementation results evaluation to measure and fine tune
o Data mining and optimizing data metrics to create the most relevant

This new service is part of the Oce Professional Services portfolio, which includes a broad range of services. This constantly expanding offering includes customer education, workflow design and engineering, project management services, and print sample and application testing, among others.

The new Oce TransPromo service offering leverages the extensive Oce software and hardware portfolio, including Oce Document Designer Advanced software, and the full line of Oce digital print solutions. The new Customer Experience Center will provide access to the new Oce JetStream(TM) full color ink jet system to support TransPromo Application Development Services. Along with the Oce JetStream family, the Oce VarioStream(R) 9000, Oce ColorStream(TM) 10000 and Oce VarioStream 8000 continuous feed lines are especially suited to the demands of high-volume personalization and TransPromo strategies.
