IKON Teams with Adobe to Enhance Efficiency in Document Distribution And Production
IKON Office Solutions, Inc. announced that it will team with Adobe Systems Incorporated to integrate Adobe® PDF Transit(TM) Internet printing technologies into IKON offerings for document distribution, sharing and printing. Leveraging the universal Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), IKON will provide solutions that improve and simplify document management and production for its customers.
IKON will integrate PDF Transit into its Desktop Express(SM) solution, which enables reliable submission of print jobs for convenient and cost- effective desktop-to-print-shop workflows. Incorporating PDF Transit into Desktop Express will benefit organizations by making it easier for users to submit “print-ready” PDF files to centralized print facilities, thus more frequently directing print work to the most appropriate resource and ensuring leverage of centralized print resources, which in turn will help keep document costs down.
