Oce Business Services Unveils Document Assessment Service to Reduce Costs, Increase Efficiencies and Productivity

NEW YORK, Oct. 10 / -- Oce N.A. (NASDAQ:OCENY), a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today announced the availability of Oce DNA(TM), a new Document Needs Assessment service from its U.S. division, Oce Business Services. Through a comprehensive analysis of the current office print environment, Oce DNA results in a fact- based document production strategy to help organizations reduce the costs of office print operations, increase convenience, improve productivity and efficiency, and align document processes with enterprise business strategies.

"A number of factors stand out in the Oce DNA offering," said Rachael Stormonth, research director at NelsonHall, the leading independent business process outsourcing (BPO) analyst firm. "The comprehensiveness of the assessment and analysis enables Oce Business Services to obtain detailed insight into the client's document production costs, the factors underlying current behaviors, and a close understanding of end-user requirements. The ensuing recommendations are multi-faceted as well as vendor-neutral, including devices, workflows and end-user behavior, and are more likely to bring significant sustainable benefits to the client. Oce Business Services not only offers to implement the holistic solution, but can also provide ongoing support services."

Most office environments have grown through need rather than design, resulting in vast numbers of different copiers, printers, scanners and fax devices that have been acquired over time. Through Oce DNA, organizations gain detailed insight into their current print environment that paves the way to significantly reduce inefficiencies and hidden costs. With the right plan, Oce DNA helps clients save up to 30 percent of current document production costs.

"Most enterprises have awakened to the significant money and time invested in document processes, and are faced with conflicting requirements to cut costs while improving effectiveness," said Elizabeth Halaki, Chief Marketing Officer, at Oce Business Services. "Identifying and understanding actual cost and output information builds the foundation for an effective enterprise print strategy and document output infrastructure. As a vendor-neutral solution provider, Oce Business Services is uniquely positioned to provide an objective, comprehensive assessment and plan that will enable our clients to reduce costs and achieve higher productivity."

The Oce DNA team of experienced document specialists analyzes the quantitative and qualitative data collected on-site and designs a customized solution and implementation plan. Oce DNA results in integrated printing solutions whereby network printing takes place in the most appropriate manner at the most efficient location. The trend towards seamless integration across all office printing areas is driven by clear business benefits: reduced waste, increased productivity, diminished need for IT support, improved internal and external communications, and the potential for significant cost savings.
