Mimeo Marketplace, already one of the fastest growing print management and distribution e-enablement solutions in the United States, is now available in the United Kingdom. Buyers and distributors of digitally printed documents can use the solution to offer materials in real time via an ecommerce interface that is accessible via desktop and mobile devices. The solution sets up in minutes for the publisher and is fully supported by the company’s digital print manufacturing, distribution and customer service teams. All materials can be produced on–demand and delivered in three days or less to any location.
New York, NY and Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, UK (February 21, 2012) – Mimeo, the leading online printing and distribution solutions company, today announced the United Kingdom launch of Mimeo Marketplace. The solution is based on the Marketplace platform already available in the United States, including recently released features such as support for multiple languages and currencies.
“Mimeo Marketplace continues to be the fastest growing platform in our company’s history. Customers are amazed at how easy it is to transition from a legacy document workflow into one that leverages the latest cloud based ecommerce and on-demand digital print technologies,” said Adam Slutsky, Mimeo Chief Executive Officer. “With the recent expansion of our services into the United Kingdom, we are now able to offer one solution that can meet customer requirements in both North America and Europe.”
Mimeo Marketplace is designed to meet the needs of companies that want to create customized online storefronts that empower others to do the ordering such as partners, employees and customers. Users can customize the platform to match their brand identify, and can determine how each document will be produced when ordered. Materials such as manuals, guides, and marketing collateral can be printed on-demand, an approach that aligns printing costs with orders. The solution seamlessly integrates into corporate intranets or as a standalone site that can be accessed by the public.
“Marketplace has changed the way we distribute materials to the thousands of schools, universities and producing organizations that rely on our printed support materials and musical scores,” said Ken Dingledine, Director of Operations at Samuel French. “Instead of warehousing materials that are printed in advance and then distributing them when we receive orders via phone, email or fax, we can simply publish them to Marketplace, and let the end user order what they need, when they need it. It’s a process that has simplified the ordering process and has resulted in significant cost savings.”
Mimeo Marketplace can be setup in minutes with no costs beyond those incurred when printed materials are ordered. Customers simply put items in a shopping cart, enter their shipping address and purchase using any major credit card or corporate credit. The publisher receives reports in real time, including analytics on purchase behavior. Many customers use Marketplace to charge for products previously provided for free; turning publishing from a cost into a profit center.
