St. Paul, MN, February 24, 2011 — APEX has completed implementation of print-management technology from Solimar Systems, further increasing the fast document processing speeds APEX offers to print-services clients in the healthcare and financial services industries.
Said Brian Kueppers, founder and CEO of APEX, “APEX became a technology leader in our industry because we continually implement new technology to improve efficiencies both for our clients—through our web-based software platforms—and also within our internal operations. New technology from Solimar has helped us remove process-related bottlenecks for even faster processing.”
