It allows the print-mail factory to substantially upgrade their capabilities to meet the SOX, HIPAA and GLB regulatory compliance requirements to become more competitive without the need to invest in new print-mail systems. Ironsides APT combined with Lake's installation and support capabilities and print-mail experience offers unparalleled value to print-mail houses worldwide.

Bill Riley, CEO of Ironsides Technology said, "Lake Image Systems is truly a world class organization and partner. Lake brings unparalleled camera technology and installation experience, from thousands of installations around the world. Their U.S. based North and South American engineering and support team ensures expert, efficient installations and happy end users, every time. Lake is vital to our goal to provide best in class technology, with peerless support and complete commitment to our clients."

Pat Hoskins, Vice President Sales and Marketing for Lake said, "Ironsides Technology's understanding of the entire document production enterprise enabled them to create a truly real-time piece level tracking and enterprise reporting solution without the integration pain and overhead associated with the solutions we have seen from the large equipment vendors. Our customers are anxiously looking for methods to reduce cost per piece and increase productivity. APT delivers these results with the scope, effectiveness and price-to-market which is valued greatly our clients."
