Customer Feedback on Technology Previews
Both GMC PortalBuilder and GMC Open Document Publisher (ODP) are innovative software products that were previewed in the GMC stand. GMC PortalBuilder software is an extension of the award-winning GMC PrintNet Designer platform. It helps businesses and their service providers create complete web-based marketing centers for timesaving, web-enabled workflow automation for variable data documents and integrated, personalized multi-channel campaigns. Full-featured GMC Open Document Publisher (ODP) helps users collect, sort, merge and dispatch variable data documents according to business rules. Using the standards-based workflow automation, users are able to achieve cost reductions, process optimization and operational efficiencies for all their document applications. Both software products received overwhelmingly positive feedback from stand attendees.
