Citation Software teams up with Atlas Software to offer dynamic-charting solution for PrintShop Mail
For immediate release
WESTBOROUGH, MA, September 29, 2001 —
Citation Software Inc. has teamed up with
Atlas Software BV
charting software for use with PrintShop Mail,
Atlas's flagship variable-data-printing solution. The
charting software can create pie charts, bar charts,
line graphs, scatter graphs, and many other kinds
of charts and graphs.
The charting software costs $675.00 for one type
of chart, and there is a $200.00 fee for
additional chart types. For example, for
pie charts and bar charts, the cost would be $875.00.
For each particular customer, the
charting software is designed to
accommodate the customer's particular formatting
specifications. Virtually any type of chart
can be created.
For example, a particular company might want a pie chart with
slices that are colored red, blue, orange
and purple; and the company might want a label printed
on each slice. Or perhaps the company needs a vertical
bar chart with labeled bars that are filled
with various shades of gray. Or maybe they
require a multi-colored line graph with a
legend at the bottom.
The charting software is designed to work
seamlessly with the customer's database. The user won't have to
do any work to associate the fields in the
database with the graphic elements on the charts.
Each customer receives an easy-to-use program that requires
just a few mouse clicks to create all the charts
that are needed for a PrintShop Mail
When the user is ready to print a batch of PrintShop
Mail documents, her or she just runs the charting program
first and then runs PrintShop Mail as usual.
You can get more details by visiting the Atlas Software booth (Booth 2060)
at Xplor in Orlando, Florida Tuesday, October 30, 2001 through
Thursday, November 1, 2001.
