Konica Adds Create!form Technology to Printing Line

Digital imaging specialist Konica Business Technologies has reached and agreement with Create!form International, which is intended to give Konica’s PostScript printers form-serving capability.

Under terms of the deal, Konica will integrate Create!form’s document production software, Create!flash, with its printers. In doing so, Create!form’s customers will be able to design business documents on their desktops and store them on the printer’s hard drive. Storing documents on the printers hard drive is advantageous because it allows the user to save time by easily merging them with data from host applications to create business documents.

Often, organizations will produce business forms and store them as hardcopies. In such a scenario, any changes, no matter how minor, would require the creation of an entire new document. The solution Konica and Create!form are proposing, as well as others like it, are designed to improve the efficiency of working with business forms by enabling organizations to save them in a digital format and make changes electronically.

The combined offering is being positioned as a good fit for central reprographic departments, data centers, and mid-volume and mainframe environments. Available immediately at select Konica dealers, Create!flash enhanced Konica printers are compatible with AS/400, VMS, Unix, NT and mainframes.
