Brooks Internet Software Celebrates 15 Years of Supporting Enterprise Network Printing, Announces Key Achievements
Idaho Falls, Idaho, September 28, 2010 -- Brooks Internet Software, Inc., is today celebrating its founding 15 years ago, and announced key corporate achievements and milestones, including immediate profitability, and a customer base of about 8,500 enterprises throughout the U.S. and over 110 other countries. Since its founding, the company has sold over 100,000 copies of its network printing applications, including its largest sale to date – 3,000 licenses to a branch of the U.S. armed forces, this year.
“In 1995, many enterprises were deploying PCs on their enterprise networks. However, it soon became clear that these platforms were not easily integrated with IBM and other legacy systems,” said Dave Brooks, president of Brooks Internet Software. “At the same time, IBM began supporting TCP/IP, which created an immediate opportunity for printing to Windows PCs and printers as a lower cost solution than the big network printers. We introduced our first application, RPM Remote Print Manager, for processing print jobs on standard Windows platforms, made our first sale as soon as RPM was released, achieved profitability immediately, and welcomed our first employee eight months later.”
The company went on to develop INTELLIscribe, for more reliable network print job processing, and ExcelliPrint, for advanced network IPDS printing from IBM systems. The applications are available from the company and its resellers in over 110 countries.
“The U.S. and European markets remain active, but lately we’ve had a lot more interest in China, Japan and Korea, and throughout South America. The specific requirements for international markets, just like business sectors, can be challenging. In Asia, we have addressed the use of language symbols, while in South America, customers want localized support, particularly since some major print manufacturers have scaled back their local presence, so we’re partnering there with local experts to bridge that gap,” said Brooks.
Brooks’ RPM Remote Print Manager is a Windows print server that adds value to LPD print jobs by enabling complex work flows, such as converting to PDFs and emailing, and converting from numerous formats and archiving to disk, as well as traditional and Windows printing. INTELLIscribe creates a virtual port that any Windows printer can use enabling printing to multiple printers simultaneously, and providing failover, using the most readily available networked printers. ExcelliPrint Premium is a high end printing system for IBM Power Systems and AS/400 servers and legacy mainframes, capable of supporting all components of complex IPDS print jobs.
