Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Oce-USA, Inc.

    CHICAGO, Ill., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive Press Release/ -- To ease
 the handling of CAD and other technical design documents used by design,
 building, and manufacturing companies, Oce-USA, Inc. (Nasdaq:   OCENY) today
 introduced the latest version of its technical document management software
 application.  Oce Engineering Exec(R) 3.0 software enables users in industries
 such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, engineering, construction,
 telecommunications, government and utilities to archive, control, manage and
 distribute small- and wide-format documents.  Due to its scalability and
 modular architecture, the software allows any organization, small to large, to
 fully optimize printing productivity and distribute technical documentation to
 any printing system, even those across the Internet.
     Among the many improvements from version 2.4, Oce Engineering Exec 3.0
 software provides Internet access to files to facilitate Web collaboration,
 enabling users to browse folders, view archived documents and submit print
 jobs from anywhere to any printer supported by Oce Engineering Exec software.
     Authorized users can access files hosted by the Oce Engineering Exec
 server through common Web browsers, saving the IT department labor cost and
 allowing for rapid deployment. This is especially important in organizations
 where hundreds of people need access to technical documentation.
     "We designed Oce Engineering Exec software to give users access at every
 stage of the document life-cycle, from creation, archiving and retrieving, to
 distribution," said Ron Butterman, director of software and business services,
 Oce-USA, Inc.  "Using Internet access to facilitate collaboration creates
 efficiencies by allowing the user to access and print documents anywhere,
 anytime.  Manufacturing and other organizations can decrease their time-to-
 market and improve their service levels significantly by using Oce Web
 technology."
     Oce Engineering Exec 3.0 software can be seamlessly integrated into a
 company's infrastructure, and now provides support for Oracle(TM) and
 Microsoft(TM) SQL databases.  Also, Oce Engineering Exec 3.0 software is
 compatible with Oce's new Technical Document Systems (TDS) series of wide-
 format printing devices.
     Additional upgrade features include a security option to control access to
 network files or folders, and the ability to view portable document (PDF) and
 PostScript files.
