TransCentra Leapfrogs Competition, Better Serves Clients with the Oce JetStream 1900 Inkjet Press Advances in digital color print technology pave the way for a transactional revolution
TRUMBULL, Conn., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Oce, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management, today announced that TransCentra, Inc., the leader in multichannel billing and payments solutions and software to companies nationwide, has installed four Oce JetStream® 1900 inkjet presses in its print locations across the country. Part of the Oce JetStream® Compact series, the systems offer high versatility in a minimal footprint.
One of the nation's largest outsourced billers, Norcross, Ga.-based TransCentra has been delivering transaction software and services for more than 25 years, serving some of the biggest names in financial services, telecommunications, and utilities. During the quarter-century TransCentra has been in the transactional business, color print technology has played an increasingly more important role.
"With the development of advanced print technologies, transactional documents have become a powerful communication vehicle for our customers to more effectively and dynamically communicate," said Lynn Boggs, Chief Executive Officer, TransCentra. "We chose Oce because of the range of capabilities that this technology allows us to offer to our clients and our strong existing relationship with Oce."
Superior Quality, Award-Winning Service
Seeking to move from a cut-sheet to a continuous feed digital printing system, TransCentra worked with the Oce team to select the Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet press. The system is the most effective solution to enable clients to gain efficiencies while enhancing communication with their customers.
Oce's commitment to service was a critical factor for TransCentra, as the company sought to purchase, install, and then train and certify operators on four new Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet presses, including two with MICR. Not only did the Oce team play a key role in delivering and installing superior equipment, it stepped up to the plate and proved it understands the true meaning of the word "partner."
"We expect the same depth of relationship from our partners that our clients expect from us," continued Boggs. "Oce did not just provide us with printers. They hosted our customer-facing relationship managers, customer service, and salespeople at their headquarters in Boca Raton for intense training, review of best practices and common obstacles faced in transitioning to digital print."
Boasting the ability to print 1818 color pages a minute, the Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet press delivers on its promise of consistency and reliability. It also eliminates the pre-printed forms the company had relied on in the past, helping to reduce inventory and provide cost efficiencies, both for TransCentra and its customers.
"The Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet press was the obvious choice for TransCentra because it offers the highest level of flexibility and productivity," said Kris Albee, Director, Product Marketing, Production Printing Systems division of Oce North America, a Canon Group company. "Not only does it deliver a white paper in, finished product out solution, but it comes with a smaller footprint and Oce's award-winning service."
About the Oce JetStream 1900
The Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet press offers a printing speed of 417 feet per minute, equivalent to just over 25,000 feet per hour, in digital full color. A member of the scalable Oce JetStream Compact series of high-volume, inkjet duplex printers, the Oce JetStream 1900 system expands the range from two field upgradeable speed bands of 246 and 328 feet per minute to even faster 417 feet per minute by increasing productivity by more than 25 percent. This makes the Oce JetStream 1900 inkjet press, the high-end product of the Oce JetStream Compact series, the ideal solution for cost-effective personalized, full color printing.
Transactional applications, direct mail documents or short-run books are often characterized by tight production windows and very high peak loads.
