MANASSAS, VA, – Oct. 12, 2004 – PowerQuote Software, Inc., and PagePath Technologies Inc. have agreed to a joint effort intended to deliver additional labor and time saving solutions to a print shop’s orderflow. Both companies will contribute their expertise and development teams to the project.

Bruce Moore, President of PowerQuote said, “PagePath is known for its best of breed technology. We want our customers to enjoy the significant cost savings that come from using it. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, we’ll work with other vendors to streamline existing print shop systems.”

“Our customers have asked for the same thing,” agreed Steve Ciesemier of PagePath. “Sure, some vendors prefer to lock their customers into a closed system. But many print shops prefer the flexibility, freedom and cost savings that come from working with vendors who allow their systems to ‘talk’ to one another. We have a history of working with other vendors to deliver savings to our joint customers. I look forward to working with Bruce and his team at PowerQuote.”

PagePath’s MyOrderDesk(tm), named “Product of the Year” and “Best of Breed”, enables printers to automate printing orders and services over the Internet. The system can be “plugged into” a shop’s existing Web site or a complete Web site can be hosted by PagePath. For information about MyOrderDesk, see, phone 630-689-4111, or email
