"Our newly introduced UNIX product, VPSX, efficiently manages end-to-end delivery of UNIX output with the performance, reliability, and control facilities that our mainframe customers have seen over the last two decades," states John Howerter, LRS Senior VP of Product Marketing. "Our customers can now capitalize on a UNIX-based solution that provides production-ready print delivery and the flexibility to address data stream and printer-specific requirements," adds Mr. Howerter. VPSX is currently being implemented by customers in the US and Europe.
Compart is an international supplier of software components used for large-scale document and output management systems. Harald Grumser, Managing Director of Compart Systemhaus, states, "Organizations using a world class print distribution infrastructure such as VPS or VPSX are able to automate high performance data stream conversion to achieve the most cost effective print operation. We are very proud to have a role in a leading solution that targets the fast-growing market of multi-channel output management." Organizations often rely on multiple vendors to process and convert AFP or SAP's OTF print data streams for use in their print center. This relationship adds transparent UNIX-based AFP and SAP data stream conversion to VPSX for use in printing, viewing, and archiving applications. Additionally, LRS customers get the benefit of receiving end-to-end support from a single vendor solely focused on output management.
