Proving It Online
DHS Customized Solution, or dedicated hosted solution, targets large customers that need a customized application for specific corporate needs. The application accesses existing image servers and databases and integrates them into complex workflows.
"Many of our clients are large divisions of an even larger corporation," explains Rob Munz, president of Proof-it-Online. "Our creation of the DHS Custom Solution is in direct response to what they have been asking for, which is our core approval technologies coupled with their existing internal workflow processes and infrastructure."
The new products were in development for about nine months, says Hose, before going live in early June. The company simplifies its product to target companies with a designer-to-client relationship rather than designer-to-designer. Its experience in the field allowed it to receive the feedback needed to complete the upgrade.
"We launched our first version in 1999," adds Hose, "and we were out there ahead of everyone else, which gave us the opportunity to get some feedback. We appeal to what the majority of graphic designers need; a basic product and a way to communicate it online and present their proofs."
