Redmond, Washington - July 1, 2009 - Pagemark Technology, Inc., an industry leading expert in XML Paper Specification rendering technology, today announced the launch of three new XPS applications. XpsConvert™, XpsViewer™ and XpsPlugin™ all offer XPS document and file management control, and convenience thereby saving time and money for enterprises, OEMs and general users. XPS documents offer benefits to users throughout the document workflow including support for security features such as digital signatures. In parallel, Pagemark has launched an ecommerce component to its website to help streamline the distribution of its new XPS applications.
"We are very excited about the launch of these new XPS applications and our new ecommerce website," said RanDair Porter, CEO of Pagemark Technology. "There is a lot of momentum around XPS adoption in the general marketplace. To that end, we have taken the next step in our business growth from providing custom solutions for OEMs and enterprises to now also offering application-based XPS solutions for consumer use. Our goal is to offer an end-to-end, rich user experience in working with XPS documents."
As an example of the product in the market place, the core technology of Pagemark’s application was recently used in GreenPrint Technologies LLC new 2.0 version of its paper-saving software product (www.printgreener.com). GreenPrint’s new product eliminates unwanted pages from being printed and reduces printing by 17% or more. GreenPrint redesigned their solution from the ground up using XPS print path technology and Pagemark’s high-performance XPS rendering solution. Some of the added enhanced functionality that Pagemark provided include faster time to preview and exporting XPS to PDF.
"Pagemark played a pivotal role in the development of our new GreenPrint version 2.0," said GreenPrint CEO Hayden Hamilton. "With their XPS SDK solution, they enabled our product to accurately render and display documents and images at a high performance rate. Not only was their technology critical to the success of our new version but their outstanding support through the development cycle was invaluable. We look forward to our continued relationship with Pagemark."
