IMS Expands its Digital Fleet with Canon Solutions America

MELVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that IMS, Inc., a fully integrated service provider of print, electronic, and mail communications, has added two Océ VarioPrint® digital perfecting systems to its fleet of digital printing technology.

A nationally accredited multi-channel communications leader, IMS, Inc. serves Fortune 500 and top-level performers across a number of industries, including financial services, insurance, healthcare, and collections/accounts receivable management, delivering variable-data printing, e-document delivery, traditional mail, interactive web portals, and other services. Throughout its nearly three decades in business, IMS, Inc. has consistently invested in technology and infrastructure to provide sophisticated, yet cost-effective solutions.

The Océ VarioPrint 6250 MICR+ and Océ VarioPrint 6320 TP+ digital perfecting systems provide the reliability that IMS, Inc. requires for meeting its customer demands.

"IMS continually searches for partners who are innovative and look to provide an enhanced value-proposition for their customer base," said John D. Mashia, Jr., president and chief operating officer. "In Canon Solutions America, we feel that we have added a partner that is going to help us grow our business. Additionally, Canon has shown its commitment to the space by consistently investing in R &D to enhance their technology offerings. These factors along with the performance exhibited by the Océ VarioPrint systems made us feel comfortable embarking in a new business relationship with their organization."

Good for Business

Pleased with Canon Solutions America's offerings and its approach to customer service, Mashia decided to move forward with two Océ VarioPrint digital printers. After an extensive marketplace-testing period, he and his team were impressed with its outstanding print quality and speed of operation, but it was the system's dependability that was the deciding factor for IMS, Inc.

"Providing our customers exceptional service and meeting critical SLA [Service Level Agreement] requirements is an important priority of our organization," said Mashia.

According to Francis A. McMahon, vice president, Marketing, Production Print Solutions division of Canon Solutions America, IMS, Inc. is a powerful addition to the company's lineup of print service providers.

"It's a source of great pride for Canon Solutions America to be able to partner with a company like IMS that delivers quality service on-time and cost-effectively," said McMahon.
