Eclipse Corp.'s DocOrigin chosen by New Orleans' largest commercial printer
New Orleans' Mele Printing has selected DocOrigin 3.0 from Cape Coral-based Eclipse Corp. to support Mele Printing's document generation services. The DocOrigin software is used to design electronic documents and forms.

Mele Printing is the largest commercial printer in the greater New Orleans metro area providing digital printing, and traditional and large format printing, as well as complete direct and automated mailing.

According to Kenny Burger, I.T. manager for Mele Printing, it had recently acquired several new companies and needed to streamline workflows and reduce the number of tools and resources required.

“We had a hodge-podge of systems,” Burger says in a press release. “By adopting DocOrigin we were able to eliminate several different custom applications as well as three different mailing solutions. Now we're down to one processing software and one mailing software. Jobs that were taking us over an hour to process have been streamlined down to five or 10 minutes.”

Eclipse Corp. is the North American distributor for Ontario, Canada-based OF Software Ltd., which produces DocOrigin.
