LaserSubstrates, Inc. Introduces Transform SoftwareTM for Small Business
The first software that allows existing Accounting and Office Software to print Checks, Statements, Invoices and Envelope in one professional-looking document
Boca Raton, Florida - June 17, 2004 - LaserSubstrates, Inc. announces Transform SoftwareTM, which allows small to midsize businesses to seamlessly print documents such as checks, statements, invoices and envelope onto Transform Self-Mailer Products from any accounting software. Transform Software creates a new printer driver that "transforms" existing accounting documents to print onto a single sheet form while adding personalized external information and graphics. The Transform Self-Mailer Products have a professional appearance that existing small business accounting software products do not provide.

Once printed, Transform Self-Mailer products do not require the use of folding or post-finishing machinery, which can cost business owners up to $15,000. LaserSubstrates, Inc. patented technology is centered on a quick "Lift, Fold and Seal"TM for simple office use. This software, developed with the small and home business in mind, saves time and money, while producing a professional document that was previously only available with the use of finishing equipment.

"We give the customer the choice of an alternative to what their existing accounting software is providing," says Josh Fabel, President of LaserSubstrates, Inc. "This is the first time a professional-looking self-mailer, that doesn't require finishing equipment, has been made available to this category of business owner."

Transform Software's unique print driver is made available to any Microsoft Windows (MSFT) 2000 or XP program that can print documents. The software works with any inkjet or laser printer and is compatible with all major accounting software such as Intuit's (INTU) QuickBooks or Best Software's (SGE.L) Peachtree Complete and other Microsoft Windows (MSFT) Word applications.

Transform Self-Mailers include:
  • Transform Check Set-up Tool - Merges bank, account, routing numbers, MICR line, legend information and optional electronic signatures with popular accounting software information into professional self-mailer checks on versatile, multi-purpose blank check stock.
  • Self-Mailer Check - Single voucher, secure check mailer with all the necessary MICR encoding, for live printing on universal, multipurpose check stock.
  • OneWay Self-Mailer - Designed for invoice, statements, notice, direct mail, correspondence, or any application where a letter is printed and mailed.

"The Ultimate Strategic Alliance"
Automation drives ease of use for USPS

By Josh Fabel, Director of Business Development, Laser Substrates, Inc
The United State Postal Service is progressive in developing the agency into a truly high tech organization to deliver the ever increasing stream of hard copy communications. USPS successfully built a web-based infrastructure to facilitate the future of delivery and tracking. Its new Confirmation of Delivery service was initiated in March 1999. In addition, the USPS is updating the numbering systems for Special Services such as, Certified Mail and Registered Mail to 128 barcode symbology. This change will facilitate delivery confirmation, for these services as well, by year end. Perhaps the most exciting yet is USPS’s development of PC Postage. This web based system will revolutionize the future of mail.

With its far reaching approach, the USPS is positioned to solidify and expand into its traditional markets. To further enhance its growth and ease of use, the USPS has embraced the cooperative efforts of postal suppliers in the private sector. This ultimate strategic alliance provides seamless benefits from one winning situation to another. Ideally, the partners in a strategic alliance help one another to make cost-effective benefits available and convenient to the end user.

A case in point: Laser Substrate, Inc., the premier developer of automated postal forms, has created relationships with progressive mail management and shipping systems to integrate the automation of USPS Special and Expedited Services into their software.

Everybody wins. USPS Special Services are not available from other vendors. Expedited Delivery Services through USPS generally cost less than private carriers. By automating these products and services, more mailers will utilize the USPS. Software developers win by enhancing their system and making it more attractive to current and potential users. The end user benefits with the economy and ease of application of a fully integrated comprehensive mailing or shipping system. Laser Substrates Inc. drives the alliance by continuously improving its products so that the all-important next generation of Automated Postal Forms are ready when its strategic partners require them. To achieve this feat, Laser Substrates devotes more than 5% of its gross revenues to research and development.

The key to a successful strategic alliance is the trust and confidence that enables the parties to jointly develop proactive products and services. What’s next? Laser Substrates has developed automated Customs Declaration and Dispatch Form 2976A and Confirmation of Delivery Form 152. PC Postage, which began beta testing in 1998, is about to become commercially available and PC Postage specific forms for all Special and Expedited Services are ready to go. At this time, many software developers are integrating these new products into their systems for early introduction.

An alliance to be more competitive

United Parcel Services traditional strong hold in the area of small parcel delivery—especially residential—has diminished with the strength of the USPS’s introduction of confirmation and tracking, in conjunction with complimentary software from mail management and shipping management companies.

Business to residence is a lucrative market, one in which USPS has upgraded its services. Business to residence is attracted to the fact that USPS provides residential service and Sunday delivery without excessive surcharges. Now that USPS offers quick confirmation service and tools that allow small shippers to capitalize on these savings.

The software connection

Laser Substrates simplifies integration of its automated forms into companion softwares by providing electronic formats and DLLs. The result is uniformity in meeting postal requirements. Individual software developers therefore, don’t have to start at ground zero. USPS can be assured a "seamless, no- complications" process from supplier through user through postal service. Laser Substrates welcomes additional alliances with software companies to further expand the success of the strategic alliance.

It all works together

Every form that Laser Substrates has developed fulfills USPS requirements, while making ease of use the prime consideration for the mailer.

It’s no secret that postal processing costs directly influence postal rates as controlled by the Postal Rate Commission. The easier the operation (eliminating extra handling and labor costs), the greater the savings to the end user.

However, there’s no time to rest. To maintain the ultimate strategic alliance, the company that drives the automation has to be responsive and proactive to changes in needs and mailing technologies.

For Immediate Release – January 1999 – Laser Substrates, Inc.
Historically, property managers have utilized 2-way mailers for invoices and statements. Previous impact products have been subjected to an exceptionally high reject rate from postal sorting equipment. Required multiple sorts have a tendency to damage these mailers. Additionally, the last 15 years has seen a preponderance of non-impact printers replacing dot matrix units. This trend will reach its zenith shortly. The next generation of Windows operating software will not support impact printers at all.

Laser Substrates, Inc. is excited to offer, as a result of 5 years of research and development, the AutoSeal™ 2-Way Self-Mailer. Laser Substrates, Inc. refused to compromise any facet of this product. AutoSeal includes all of the features that have been requested by property managers using a laser printable format.

The USPS approved form has been developed encompassing the following features. AutoSeal self-mailers require no commitment to expensive folder/sealing equipment. The AutoSeal mailer is self-forming and a totally generic multi purpose form. It prints in a single pass through a laser printer.

AutoSeal includes the ability to print USPS post-net bar codes on both outgoing and return envelopes to expedite cash flow. A safety pantograph on the inside of the return envelope protects the integrity of tenant rent checks. The return voucher is sized to fit within the return envelope, no folding to insert and no unfolding to apply payment. The inclusive return envelope may be simultaneously laser printed with a third party address, or used in multiple lock boxes. The return envelope may also be used to carry a positive I.D. to identify the check even if the tenant has omitted the return voucher.

Software to generate AutoSeal is currently available for Skyline users. The response from Skyline users has been so positive that all other property management software will quickly integrate this mailer.

For more information on integration as well as a DLL to simplify this task, software publishers should contact Ed Rosman, software coordinator. Property managers should call Laser Substrates, Inc. 1-800-538-4900 for test samples and availability of applications to run this form with your current software.
