Aurora, IL, — February 22, 2000 – 1700 graphic arts service providers such as commercial printers, screenprinters, copyshops, ad specialties, quick printers, graphic designers, reprographers, etc. are now registered to use MyOrderDesk, PagePath’s e-commerce solution. This new tool helps them increase the productivity and profitability of their online business. MyOrderDesk increases the efficiency of the procurement process by enhancing the graphic arts service provider’s web site with sophisticated workflow capabilities. Released in December of 1999, MyOrderDesk supports both Macintosh and Windows users.

MyOrderDesk is free and consists of a secure web-based order entry, file transfer, confirmation, and job management system. MyOrderDesk can be added to an existing website or used on a standalone basis. With MyOrderDesk, a graphic arts service provider can avoid the significant investment in time and money required to create and maintain a sophisticated e-commerce website. MyOrderDesk is a turnkey system that is accessed through the Graphic arts service provider’s website or a free website provided by PagePath.

MyOrderDesk uses a special order entry and file attachment web page
linked to the graphic arts service provider’s website. The order entry page is personalized with the graphic arts service provider’s identity. MyOrderDesk includes the LAUNCH! Web file transfer engine enabling multiple files to be easily attached to the order. Orders or files entered through the personalized MyOrderDesk web pages are automatically acknowledged by e-mail to the person placing the order or files. An e-mail is also automatically sent to the printer alerting them to the new order/files. A weblink in the e-mail uses the
graphic service provider’s browser to retrieve the bundled order and any
job files.

Both the graphic arts service provider and their customers can review previous orders by clicking on a weblink. Access to the order data is protected by
individual ID and passwords. A monthly job report also is automatically
e-mailed by MyOrderDesk to the graphic arts service provider.

MyOrderDesk enables the graphic arts service provider to conduct e-commerce, including taking credit card information, with as many of their customers as needed. MyOrderDesk supports both Macintosh and Windows users with Netscape 4.08 or higher, or Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher.
