Software integrates powerful printing capabilities within the CATIA V5
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 18, 2003-- Oce (Nasdaq: OCENY) announces the release of Oce Print Exec(TM) Pro software for CATIA V5, which provides CATIA V5 users with substantially enhanced control over printing - especially in large, networked environments.
CATIA, developed by Dassault Systemes and distributed primarily by
IBM, is the world's leading business process automation solution for
product creation and product lifecycle management (PLM). Oce Print
Exec Pro software is part of the Oce Engineering Exec(TM) suite of
archiving and distributed output management software. The new software
provides a total print management solution for CATIA V5 users.
Oce Print Exec Pro software for CATIA V5 is currently available
for Windows(R) versions of CATIA V5. Dassault Systemes' CATIA V5 is a
PLM solution primarily targeted toward the small to medium enterprise
market within the aerospace, automotive, consumer goods, electronics
and ship building industries.
Oce Print Exec Pro software integrates many print management
capabilities within the CATIA V5 user interface. It offers users:
|--||Support for a broad range of Oce and other industry standard printers within one intuitive, common print interface, utilizing the CATIA V5 "look and feel"|
|--||The ability to shift print processing from CATIA V5 design stations to back-end network servers, thus increasing the available time for actual design work at the MCAD station|
|--||Advanced output capabilities, such as media selection, stamping, and print job management, to provide immediate status of submitted print jobs|
|--||Easy-to-use administrative tools, with drag-and-drop printer and job management and automated job splitting and printer load balancing|
Oce Print Exec Pro for CATIA V5 supports global printing, allowing
printers to be utilized throughout the enterprise by remote design
centers, partners, suppliers and vendors. From any CATIA V5
workstation, users can select a printer, choose printer settings, and
media type and size. The software's open architecture also offers the
possibility to manage print jobs from other CAD, PLM or document
The new software also helps organizations control costs by
providing the ability to keep accurate records of what was printed at
what time by each department, user or project. This ability helps
organizations accurately measure and allocate printing costs, as well
as identify cost overruns.
According to Bruno Latchague, executive vice president of research
and development, Dassault Systemes, "The tight integration of the key
functionalities of Oce Print Exec Pro software with the CATIA V5
solution will greatly simplify printing support requirements and thus
increase our customers' productivity. This new complementary product
results from our strong partnership with Oce."
"Oce's new enterprise print management solution for CATIA V5
overcomes common printing obstacles of MCAD systems, allowing users to
focus on their core competencies and reduce the time it takes them to
get their products to market," added Joyce Virnich, vice president of
marketing for the Oce-USA, Inc. Wide Format Printing Systems business
unit. "In this time of economic uncertainty, these types of
efficiencies are critical to helping organizations reduce their costs
and streamline their processes."
On January 9, 2001, Oce and Dassault signed a component
application architecture (CAA) development partnership. The purpose of
this agreement was the integration of Oce printing applications within
the CATIA V5 environment. The result is the integration of customers'
critical processes - from design to printing and plotting - into a
single environment. Oce is a Software Gold Partner of Dassault.
